Someone I know has the name Sharryne (pronounced exactly the same as Sharon). Seriously. She's in her 60s so yooneek spelling obviously isn't a new thing.
I don't get why people feel the need to make up names or spell/pronounce normal names differently. There are so many wonderful names out there and if you're looking for something a bit different, look to other cultures for names instead!
Same, I often like unusual names, traditional names are often too common or 'boring' for my liking. I just don't get people who name their children something that no one will EVER get right (like the C(VIII)Lin [Caitlin] example I posted earlier in the thread).
I like Van, it always makes me think of Van Wilder but in the movie that was short for Vance.
I will admit I didn't notice that Dale & Sophie named their son Van Vine until mentioned here. That is unfortunate.
Cheeah- chee-ah, as in chia seeds....
With all these 'you'nique names floating around, im really interested in seeing my sons classmates names when he goes to school! Im very traditional I guess. When my son was born all the ladies In the SCU commented on how they hadnt seen a child with his name in a while

I kind of thing some of the lower socio-economic areas see naming a child as their chance to be extravagant, something they can't do in many other areas of their lives.
Met a girl called Peah.. like Leah with a P.. didn't ask about spelling. Can only assume there's a random I and a silent j in there somewhere.
Pregnant for the first-time?
