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?

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."
