    I kid you not, I grew up with a girl who’s name was Ona Beverage. I’ve often wondered what happened to her.

    Sean says; Ben Dover and Eileen Dover 😉

  3. Laura says:

    I asked this question because there is a little girl in Josh’s class named…

    wait for it…

    Abcde.

    Yep. You read that correctly.

    Her name really is, “Abcde.” It’s pronounced, “AB-si-dee”.

    That is just cruel and unusual punishment I think! Phil Graves was the CEO of the hospital I work at for a long time. Never struck me about his name til after he left! I’m going to have to think about this one though…

    Honest to goodness;

    Years ago my Mrs. had a gynocologist named…. DR. FINGER!

    A few years ago when our 20 year old daughter was 17 she was seeing a Dermotoligist by the name of DR. KRATER!

    I promise you I am not making that up.

    Hmmm.. I’ve heard some weird ones over the years but can’t think of them off the top of my head..

    Jewel had a lil boy in her class last year that when she said his name it sounded like she was saying “Evil Ears” but I still have no idea what the little boys name was..

    It just astounds me what some people will name their kids.

    We had a little girl that came to our girl scouts troop once.. her name was ouwee (I can’t remember exactly how it was spelled but it sounded like ow wee)

    I had a brother-in-law whos name was Dick Cockrane.First time I heard it,I laughed inside.Then I wondered how is parents could give him his first name with a second name Cockrane.He must be around 60 now.I bet he was teased in school.I never got the nerve to ask 🙂

    A special ed class I observed years ago (as an ed student) included a girl named Princess. A couple young siblings I tutored were named Chriscynthia and Oree. There are probably lots of others that I’m not remembering right now.

    My mom told me of an immigrant who named her daughter Fe-ma-le (pronounced feh-MAH-lay) because she thought that was the name assigned by the hospital at birth. Not sure if that was a true story, though.

    A couple of sisters on TV claimed their names were Ima Hogg and Ura Hogg.

    I love unusual names. As a matter of fact I collected them for a while. Some just sound funny without an obvious reason, like Preston Sprout (I always imagined him as a sidekick to the Jolly Green Giant!)

  10. Paula says:

    I used to have a neighbor called Sandy Rump

  11. SKL says:

    Some people I work with professionally include Ms. Achenbach (I always pronounce it achin’ back) and Mr. Krabenschmidt (who happens to be a crabby shit).

  12. SKL says:

    One of my band teachers was Mr. Tweedle (yes, he did play the flute).

  13. nikki says:

    2 was her name..the spelling I cannot do b/c of missing letters on my compter! I did daycare for her son Sawl…that’s how ya say it anyhow. Again missing letters. Great people!

  14. Just a Mom says:

    I had a girl named Petina that worked for me years ago. I used to call her Petunia and she would get sooo mad! 🙂
