    Default Strangest names?

    One of my 'friends' {the people you saw every day but never really talked to} in school just posted a 'social networks site' status on how she's sick of everyone mispronouncing her kid's names.

    After about 30 comments from various people after it, it was revealed that she has a girl called Lisbeth and a boy called Justyenne.

    She's annoyed that people call her daughter Lisbeth {pronounced liz-beth} and not Elizabeth, apparently the 'E' is silent and 'everyone' should knows that.
    Also, the boy should be called 'Justin' and not pronounced "just-eye-en", and she hates that people assume he's a she.

    Most people sympathised with her, but all I could think was: What did you expect?

    So what are the strangest names you've ever heard of?

    Sorry but I would have a field day with that status. Pointing and laughing would be the first thing Id do.

    Does she mean a silent E like you would say eLisbeth (pronouncing eL) like Xavier can be eXavier?
