Ridiculous Names

So, I work at a predominately african american high school in a very poor and rural area of SC.

Today I was covering a 9th grade English class because we can't afford to pay subs.

There was a student in there named Magazine. No lie.

Other fun names I've run into:

Ka'Quan

Abcd

Varsudula

Timez

reminds me of the story about the girl named Le-a (pronounced Ledasha)

My cousin just named his newborn daughter Harper Joseph, still not sure what to think of it

I guess its kinda goes with people changing the spelling of traditional names just to make them unique.

I can't tell you how many different ways I've seen "Ashley" spelled.

Hahaha. I had both a "Unique" (male) and Unekia (Female) in the same class.

I think that this is a fairly recent phenomena... I don't recall people with crazy names from when I was younger.

Nevaeh (Heaven backwards)

Precious (Especially considering she was the most evil, racist biznatch ever)

Question though, I thought I might vet the name I plan to give to my future daughter here: Marcyanna

It's the name of my Polish Great great grandmother. Ridiculous, or still normal enough that it won't be scrutinized?

Really? Hopefully it was the first in its class to write its own name.

I like Marcyanna. It's like Maryann(wife's name), and doesn't sound like creativity being forced.

Knew a girl named Storm Smith growing up....I think us white people have something about these really (to us) oddball kids names - they sound like something flippant that you would name a dog in a lot of cases. I feel bad for a kid that wants to go to Harvard but was named after something trivial or silly - "Hey Joe, I'm pleased to present to you the lawyer that will represent your Fortune 500 company in the upcoming trial, Shanayquaylaleela Roberts."
