    English first names for Punjabis are usually all kinds of lullz.

    Know people named 'Sweety', 'Precious' and 'Lovely', I kid you not.

    It's their actual name again just ftr, not some joke pet name.

    Don't so much mind the ones that are just "nice" words. I wouldn't call a kid something overly original myself, as a person has to introduce their name all the time and explaining it would get old after a while. But I don't think there's something inherently wrong with "Cherry" over some other plant that girls are typically named after.

    Blatantly making up words is probably where I draw the line. Still can't quite get over Troyzan.

    Some parents named their twins Benson and Hedges.

    Also it was in the paper that an Aussie (or was it Kiwi) couple named their daughter, "Thalula does the Hoola in Haiwai", or something like that.

    The wrestler, Ultimate Warrior legally changed his name to Warrior so that he could sue the WWF over copyright issues iirc. What a guy.

    Nah, some Kiwi couple asked to name their daughter that, but the government ministry rejected it. Not that it makes it any better, mind.
