I could not believe my eyes when I heard this. I was recently in Hongkong and I ventured out for a drink one evening. Ended up meeting a girl named... Seven. Just Seven. Not six, not eight. Seven. The only thing I could think of was George Costanza trying to convince his fiancee's cousin to pick Soda over Seven for their kid's name.

I also remembered that a few weeks before I was in Shanghai and I met this guy named Lemon.

So, what are some of the more unusual names you have encountered?

Cheers,
Coal

That's weird, I also knew a Lemon. There was also a kid I knew that was named Jesus with his middle name Christ.

Fyn-Kevin, Ronny, Mirko, Raiko, Maik (pronounced rather like "Mike"), Bonke, Tomke, Gertje in Germany, as well as "Ida Briana Marlin", "Tiziana Minerva Gwendolin" and "Thaddäus Magnus Kasimir" for children born in this millennium

Wagner (like the surname), Reno (like the river Rhine in Portuguese), Ruslandia (reminds you of the German word for "Russia"), Zulailde, Wilker in Brazil

If I had a better memory for odd names, the Brazilian list would probably be two pages long.

When I was living in Oakland I went out with a sister named Chavette. I wanted to ask her where she was conceived but I think she could have taken me down.

Once I saw in a TV report about Russia that people in some village named their kids "Electricity" when some nuclear power plant was built next to them in the 70's.  Silly

Quoting Aloges (Reply 2):
Fyn

I like this name actually, but only without the "-Kevin" or any other second name.

Quoting Aloges (Reply 2):
"Ida Briana Marlin"

Briana is actually a nice name if it is the only first name, some years ago I fucked a girl with that name in Las Vegas. Big grin

Quoting Aloges (Reply 2):
"Tiziana Minerva Gwendolin" and "Thaddäus Magnus Kasimir"

These names are just beyond believe, seriously, how can someone give a kid such a ridiculous name? I think that my middle name is already ridiculous and needless, actually I am a bit angry that my parents decided for it. I never use my second name, even not when I have to sign important things at my employer, my bank, etc.

When my Dad was doing his PhD he was collecting field data from primary school children in Malawi. I helped him a little bit here and there and there were no end of ridiculous names. "Postoffice Jackson" "Superior Kennedy" and other hilarious names. Keep in mind this was in rural Malawi almost ten years ago!

If you want stupid names watch the NFL; "Jeremetrius Coles" and "Plaxico Burres" spring to mind.

That's hilarious. When I was working in Cameroun, I realized that the people do their best to prevent the forgetting of ancient and medivial English and French names!

Stormy Night, which is very...interesting.

Some people say that my name (either just the last or the full name) is very odd. I get comments and retarded jokes from everyone, including life-long friends to TSA agents and professors.

Everyone remembers it though.

EDIT: Also, in MT I knew a guy named Jack Ass (He changed it to that legally, though.) and another man who's name was "Harry Legg." Harry did not change his name, however. Seems his parents had a sense of humor.

While someone with the first and middle name Jesus Christ would have a very odd name, here in Latin America, Jesus (or rather Jesús) is a very common name.

Indeed. I have a co-worker who does support in Portuguese, and she is constantly amazed by the odd names many Brazilians have.

That being said, what the hell is wrong with parents in these last decades? What's with the obsession for such "unique" names? As I've said many times over, if I have kids, I'll be very conservative and choose with my girlfriend/wife a name for the kid that is not only as common as possible, but also a name that would not make the kid subject to mockery. There are enough good names around, so I don't get why people get exited with those odd names that may seem like names used to punish the kid for just being conceived.

Or JaMarcus Russell, Marshawn Lynch, Le'Ron McClain, Syndric Steptoe (WTF?!), Montavis Pitts, Deshawn Wynn, and Martrez Milner...and those were all from this year's NFL draft. Plus, let's not forget D'Brickashaw Ferguson from last year.

Zulailde

Sounds like a Turkish name to me

Quoting DeltaGator (Reply 20):
Chiquita

Diminutive of Chica = girl.

Actually the registrars in Germany have a list of officially accepted names (even if some of them sound quite old fashioned). If you want to give your child an unusual name, you'll have to prove that it is a real name, e.g. back in secondary school I had a classmate name Sabeth. The parents (who were Germans, but worked for almost a decade in Turkey) had to prove that Sabeth was a real Turkish name and not just an abreviation for Elisabeth.
Another thing is that many people here name their children with their second name e.g. after some ancestor, e.g. my sister's (first name: Eva) second name is Luise, a name which many today would fiend quite oldfashioned, but it is the name of our greatgrandmother, who passed away just before she was born. Also, my daughter's second name is Else, also quite oldfashioned, but it's the name of my maternal grandmother, who also died just a few months before she was born.
My brother's second name is Bertold, after the famous German poet Bertold Brecht.
