Christgift, Christwill and Christgood all siblings. Bless their hearts —GAG-NON-GLOBAL


When I was pregnant my now exMIL wanted me to name our son “Rock” which is stupid as it is but the last name is Bowler so my son’s name would be Rock Bowler and I couldn’t do that to the poor kid. My ex thought it would be funny to name him Rocky with the middle name Bal so his name would be Rocky Bal Bowler… —happykitty05

Heard a lady yell at her kid. “Graceland Tennessee stop running around!” —morosebae


Chevy, because he was conceived in the bed of a Chevy truck. —aliyvonne


Baby girl. Yes this was their legal name —SilentDoggo


My friend went to high school with Richard Noggin. —paintedbyfailure


I worked with someone named Baby. Before I knew of her I saw an email that started with “Hey Baby” (she and I were on the same email distribution list) and I thought “uh I guess this guy didn’t do the mandatory annual anti sexual harassment training?” I couldn’t believe it when I realized that was her actual name. —RestlessLadyBoss


Okay Arthur Doak. We called him Okay. He was the youngest of 5 kids. Fancy (named after the Reba song) and her sister Truly (named after Truly Scrumptious from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang). Secretlove. She was a kid my mom met when my mom worked at a pediatrician’s office. Secretlove’s mom laid out the whole story to my mom about the name. —mebust


Had a boy in our school named Avonté. Pronounced Avont. Mother insisted the accent made the e silent. She would come completely unglued when anyone said his name wrong. Lady, that’s “Avontay”

Update: IKR?! I have no idea why she didn’t just leave off the e altogether. The sad thing is, she really really thought it would make it silent. She was really angry about it. If she were a nicer person I would have felt sorry for her as I’m sure no one really challenged it until he got to school and people saw it written versus just hearing it. It got to be where after pre-K we’d warn each teacher about how to pronounce it so spare them the wrath and the incorrect grammar lesson from mom but no one could help it. —betterannamac


Nevaeh. It’s heaven backwards. Anyone that tells you their daughter is named Nevaeh will also tell you that it’s heaven spelled backwards. Every time. —Jayjhis


My boyfriend’a mom was born in the countryside in mainland China. Her given name literally means “lucky truck” in Chinese. I asked why her name was so odd, since Chinese naming traditions are usually really complex. Apparently, her parents were illiterate and also decided not to go to the fortune teller for name advice. They just picked something they thought sounded nice and then picked characters that were easy to write with the same pronunciation.

Edit: I forgot to say, her name has a second meaning as u/k0ella pointed out: delivery truck. The first character in her name has two meanings depending how it’s used. I prefer lucky truck since it sounds better haha. —onion926
