    Weirdest names you have heard?

    What is the weirdest names you have heard give to a person?

    I found it today with a new person starting work with us today and his name is Oral, no ****, I kid you not, that is his first name (apparent he is from New Zealand)

    A former Wellington first class cricketer's full name was "England" too, which I only recently learnt (it was posted in one of the threads here IIRC) - definitely thought that was a bit strange.

    Wouldn'y you just change your name the first chance you got or if you had a middle name which is a lot more normal, be known as that?

    There was an unfortunate lad who was named "Triple M Rogue".

    It was a while ago, but I found a page mentioning it:

    CHILD NAMED TRIPLE M ROGUE FUELS ROW

    A controversial name given to a baby boy has been slated as 'emotional abuse' by the Children's Commissioner. Roger McClay has received a complaint about the naming of Triple M Rogue. The name is short for Mighty Mongrel Mob Rogue Chapter. Mr McClay says the inevitable obstacles arising from the name equate to subjecting the boy to psychological abuse. He says parents should not be allowed to give children names that detract from the dignity of the child. Mr McClay is unable to take action over the issue but believes it is time for Parliament to look at setting guidelines for naming children.

    No offence, but names like Jamee. Basically names which already exist, but spelt "funny".

    Some Zimbabwean kid called Superman. Cigarette takes the cake though.

    I can't see any sane reason for calling your child Cigarette...it boggles the mind.

    I dislike normal names that are spelt differently, like Jamee and Khelsie. But also the parents of people like Pat Patterson and Dave Davies really need to think about what they are doing.

    When i saw that i thought it was down to dodgy records where all they know of his name is that his surname is England.
