Anyone's children called unusual names? I know there most be lots out there!

I love these questions! My dd is called Bella, not very unusual I know but we've not come across another one yet and she's 6 now!

My mum teaches and one of the families at her school has a Malachi, Peppermint, Echo, Rogue, Frodo and Artemis. Peppermint and Rogue are the girls if you didn't realise!

My sister was talking about naming her children after the girls on 'House of Elliot'!!! Just the other day! Weren't they Bea and Evie though?

Twiglett Sat 25-Jun-05 11:39:56

my dd is called Emmie. not unusual, but not common. she was named after exp's grandmother. but the annoying thing is people think her name is either Emma or Amy. when i opened a savings account for her, the guy put her name as Emma even though he had the birth certificate in front of him which he was using to copy her surname down!

rodeo1 Sat 25-Jun-05 12:03:45

I think Evadne was going to be called 'Ariadne' but by the time she'd had her she'd forgotton and called her what she thought she'd liked in pg. Not for a few weeks (after registering the birth) did she realise she's got them mixed up!

My children have very ordinary names. Bet you can't guess what they are.

The weiredest one I ever heard was Frank Zappa calling his son Moon Unit.

DD goes to school with a Nivarna.

my DS's names are unusual in the sense that they're not very common in the UK, but they're both 'reasonably' common in Zimbabwe (although probably wouldn't make the 'top 100' list though)

bonniej Sat 25-Jun-05 12:50:13

haven't a clue where to go. dh told me roughly where it is so hopefully i should find it ok. Hope there's somewhere to park! (sorry about the thread hijack!)

Donbean Sat 25-Jun-05 12:51:41

ok, i could come to you and you can follow me if you like.
YES, appoologies for shameful hyjack BUT when there is party cake involved it is a MUST

Donbean Sat 25-Jun-05 12:54:11

its a right turn at the number 3 pub, half way up before you get to the traffic lights turn up the road on the right and you should be able to park there somewhere. Church is on that main road.

bonniej Sat 25-Jun-05 12:56:24

that's what dh said, a right turn at the number 3. Don't worry about coming out of your way, I should be ok to find it and look forward to seeing you there
