    It's not pretentious it's vulgar, but I was reading a newspaper article which was about unusual names people in the UK had given to their children, and there are two boys who were given the name Superman, the poor little buggers, and I personally knew someone who had given their child the name Rocky. On the few occasions Rocky came out with us if I had to shout to him I referred to him as 'hey you'.

    Superman is very bad.

    I heard once on the radio that somone named their child Mork (like Mork and Mindy)

    Rocky is not so strange to me. I've heard it before, but as a nickname.

    the oddest urban legend name I heard is male' and female'. with the accent over the e (pronounced mall-eh and feh-mall-eh)

    I knew an only son named Winslow Childe Threadgood-Wigglesworth at school, which I thought was pretty awful.

    This may qualify.

    Am part of a bit of a "clique" at our office, and we all have nicknames for each other.

    Mine is Fluffy.

    I hope no one Googles his name and comes across it here now! :eek:

    It is pretty pretentious though. I knew one but I won't say it here, a guy I went to school with. He had a "high society" sounding name too.

    Of course celebrity names, you gotta love Moon Unit and Dweezil Zappa, and also another of my "favorites", Pilot Inspektor (yes, that spelling with a "k" in "Inspektor" is correct in this case). I figure that celebrity and celebrity kids' names are fair game here since they're "in the public eye".

    Oh, these are great! I read most of that site - good stuff... I thought I was the only person who "collected" unusual names! (and I have one myself, too - and I love it! :smile: )

    Anyone who would name their kid Vagina is one truly messed up individual.

    There was a story on the AOL Welcome page just the other day about a couple being denied naming their kid a certain bizarre name. I never read the full story, so I don't what it was, but I can't imagine it being any worse than Vagina!:eek:


    These are just popular names that I hate...

    Destiny
    Kaitlin
    Jaelyn

    Colby
    Dane
    Hunter


    These are a bit more obnoxious and pretentious..

    Well how do you like a parent's idea of a verbal joke... Stormy Weather Coates. This poor girl ended up dying of an overdose in her teens.
    How about CInderella Snow White Jones How is that for a prince charming fantasy?
    Of course there are the inimitable twins named SaPhillis and Ganorah

    One of my friends told me about coming across a couple who named their daughter Precious Angel. Ick! This kid is probably a holy terror, too!

    I used to have a customer named Eros. He's really lucky he grew up to be hot.

    Can you imagine having to explain that name to a group of kids?

    NFL Linebacker Lucious Pusey, had to change his name before he could play. Calling him Lucious or Pussey wasn't working out for the team and the coaches. Too much laughing.:redface:

    He became Luscious Seymour, which could be changed to
    Seymour Luscious Pussey.
