I love routing through Baby Name dictionaries for new names. I was just browsing a name dictionary today and it had the name Bacon in it. :P Yes....Bacon.

My baby name book has over 60,000 names, so there are a lot of strange ones.

One of many 'different' names I found was a girl's name: Zsa Zsa. I'm not sure how it's pronounced.

Bacon and Baby are weird names!

I can just imagine someone going, "It's a baby so...let's call it Baby. That'll be cute because babies are cute. Am I right? I'm right, right?" Lol.

As for Zsa Zsa it's actually more common in Hungary, I think. It's pronounced ZHAH-zhah. :P

There was a girl in my freshman dorm named Sister. Apparently it's like, an old school southern name.

Frank Zappa has a daughter named Moon Unit Zappa, but her name is Moon Zappa, Unit is her middle name. Shannyn Sossamon named her kid Audio Science Clayton. Audio Clayton. I like some weird names, but... man.

I went to college with a guy named Audiel, I kinda liked it though. I mean I'd never use it, but it suited him. I also went to high school with a girl named Cookie. Her first name was Elizabeth, Cookie was her middle name, and she went by it willingly hahaha.

That's it guys, I'm not naming my second daughter Georgia Bevin anymore, I'm naming her...[looks around the room] Flipflop iPod. I think it really makes a great sibset with Fiona Siobhan.

Working in childcare, I've come across some pretty crazy ones.

Tria ~ "Tree-ah"
Lakeesha & Lasheeka ~ Twins. Awful combo!
Sharmonicuh - Rhymes with Harmonico?!
Nick'coal ~ Why couldn't they just spell it Nicole?

The worst ever was the mom who wanted to be really "kre8iv",
and named her daughter Psihmanthaye (Samantha to you and me).

I know that those aren't really to the point of the thread as I didn't see them in a book, but I thought I'd share.

There are more, I just can't think, will update when I think of them!

Psihmanthaye? :) I would NEVER have said Samantha, let alone remember how to spell that.

I have several baby name books, so I've found some pretty crazy names. Weetamoo is probably the weirdest I've seen, but I've also found Fantasy, Sanctity, Phantom, Obedience, and Perfect. Seriously. Just... :P

Wow, lots of interesting names here. :)

That spelling of Samantha is just cruel.

And Perfect and Obedience? ;)

The kid will never live up to the expectations. Wow.

I hate when people get so creative in their spellings it's not even recognizable, like that version of Samantha. don't think stop and think that this person is going to have to spell that name over and over and over to people, which is bad enough, but also have to tell them how to SAY it?! :D
