    Yeah I figured. But usually it would be 'a variation' of the original name, and since Naomi is in the Bible I would guess that is the root name

    Insert sigh here LOLz
    This is mainly hilarious to me because my sisters name is Theresa Browne hahahahahahah

    Hmm, Lucifer is a legitimate name though... it's where we get Luke, Luca, etc from.
    Honour is also a name.

    Odd.

    The names I consider the most awful are the traditional ones spelled weird, drives me mad!

    I've heard a two shockers lately but I fear they are both on the hub and would definitely know who I am and who I am meaning if I mention them! I cringe every time I seem them.

    The issue with traditional names being given different spelling can be summed up in what happened on the weekend.

    Called for a Taxi at the Tim Nevillle Arboritum.

    'How do you spell Tim?'
