    Poor bogans and their freaky naming conventions. Just as well I'm perfect I have heard a few Chardonnays floating around lately and it always makes me think of that trashy but wonderful show Footballers Wives.
    But could be worse: When my friend was born her parents agreed upon a name for her, but dad stopped at the pub on his way to the registry office. When he finally got to the counter he'd forgotten the name, so just picked something at random. Unsurprisingly the couple divorced not long after!

    It could have been Calais as in the French town

    I didn't even know there was a commodore called Calais

    Zzemeelia, Dazaniel and Razael are names given by 3 of my ex-students to their children. I understand, somewhat, the desire to give a child a yooneek and speshul name, but why is it that they are almost universally awful? Creative spelling only makes me question the educational attainment of the parents.

    My husband made the comment upon hearing of Dazaniel's birth: "well, that's one less child competing against ours for a seat on the Supreme Court one day."

    This thread makes me want to WEEP!

    I can't add any more creative ones because I'm trying to forget them...oh I'll give you one, Alyvviah!

    Undoubtedly the most interesting name I've come across is Niamh which is Irish and pronounced "Neev".
