Wow, this thread is raking up all sorts of memories! I used to know a woman named "Dadene" (rhymes with Nadine). It turned out that all of her siblings also had names ending in "ene/ine": Marlene, Darlene, Pauline, Maxine, Malverine (I swear I am not making this up; I can only assume she was the evil one in the pack). There was only son was Donald Dean, who was always called by both names. Amazing, isn't it?

One of my friends once dated a girl named "Dreamadawn" or maybe it was "Dreama Dawn". I'm still not sure if "Dreama" was her first name and "Dawn" was her last name, or her given name was "Dreamadawn" and if she had a last name, what it was. Who knows. say it three times fast: Dreamdawndreamadawndreamadawn.

I had a student a couple of years ago named Dreamaleigh. Funny thing is, she was the most serious, down-to-Earth kid you'll ever meet. It's like she was determined to be the opposite of any expectations her name carries. She should have been named Helen.

Also, my mother went to school with twins named Storm and Drizzle. Storm is kind of badass, but Drizzle? Sucks out of context.

A few years ago, one of my friends had a student named Unique. I looked it up, and it was actually rapidly rising in popularity as a baby name.

Finn wanted to name Quinn's baby Drizzle on Glee. I don't know why I'm shocked that someone actually did it.

Orangejello and Lemonjello,( pronounced or-AHNJ-ello and le-MON-jello.) The mother couldn't think of names for her twin sons, so named them after what foods she craved the most during her pregnancy. That is a TRUE story. (actually it's probably not, but still.)

I went to school with a girl named Girlie Weight. I feel bad laughing at her name now, though, because she was murdered a couple years ago. RIP, Girlie.

I can only think of awesome names, but i want to post this one here anyway

Sparkle Johnson!

also I dreamed last night that I had a baby and I had to have a c-section and someone told me the baby was a boy so we named it Robert Rene Russo and then I found out it was actually a girl, but it was too late because we had already signed the birth certificate.

I forgot I once knew a girl named Pepsi. Which is a cute enough word if it wasn't also a brand of pop! She had a tattoo of the Pepsi logo on her lower back.

Went to school with a Memry and a Waymond (he couldn't pronounce Raymond and Waymond was his actual name).

Lemonjello and Oranjello are classics, but not exactly genuine.

Oh, that reminds me...I went to school with a Nimrod. Seriously! His name was Nimrod! That's a biblically bad name.

Connotations change. I'm reading Double Indemnity and the femme fatale's name is Phyllis Nirdlinger.

It wasn't a funny name in the 30s.

The protagonist in Tender Is the Night (1934) is named Dick Diver.

I've heard the name Nimrod as a first name through work, I'm pretty sure. Rings a bell.

If it was good enough for Will Shakespeare's only son...(Of course, he only lived to be 11, but I'd attribute that more to the high mortality rate in the late 16th century than to anything else!)

Anyway, I'm sure I've posted about this elsewhere, but I once booked a museum field trip for a teacher named Dorcas Weiner; I had to put her on hold for a second so that I could giggle.
