Some unusual names I have came across either at the park, school, playgroups, swimming lessons etc since have my kids;
Holiday - for a girl & if anyone shortened it to Holi her mum would correct them.
El-a pronounced Eldasha
Met a dad called Radio, he was African & his parents thought the radio was so amazing that they named him after it.
Seb & Bastian twin boys.
Hally, as in conceived in the hall...
When I was a child, I sold a raffle ticket to an older woman who was embarrassed by her name

She pointed out that the surname was via marriage so her parents didn't know that would be her surname when they named her.
We chose a foreign name for Miss7, but pronounced it phoeneticaly instead of holding to the correct foreign pronounciation. (Our assumption was that most Australians wouldn't know the correct pronounciation anyway, so we'ld simply use the obvious version instead.) Now she is in school and uses an electronic device in the classroom that pronounces her name the correct foreign way. I have a little bit of regret that we westernised the pronounciation, but it is a bit late now.
Took a all at work from someone called Prince George.

I once read an article about a baby named Cviiitlin. I thought it was a Russian name, but it turns out the "viii" is supposed to be read "eight" (as in Roman numeral 8). So Cviiitlin is actually C-eight-lin.
When I was in hosp delivering my son there was a baby girl 'abcde' I thought they just didn't have a name yet so put that on her crib but that was her actual name pronounced ab-sid-ee
Then there is the twins Benson and Hedges or is that just rumour?
Not sure if I may have posted in this thread in the past, but one particular name that springs to mind is from when I worked at a playcentre and took a party booking one day from a father and his son's (the birthday boy) name was King.
