First, your weekly dose of aspiring nobility:
Quin-seen-um Prince James
Also, Nigel Justice Lawrence Joseph Tobi Charles, who probably IS nobility.
Here is an interested trend. I've seen a bunch of suggestions for Genesis as a name (spelled once as "Genisis" - eugh), but never had I seen other OT books beyond Esther, Ruth, Joshua etc. UNTIL NOW. Say hello to Leviticus Paul and Leviticus Trenton, HERE TO LAY THE SMACK DOWN, YO!
Lestat Henry Cooper is already cutting his own face - HOW GAWTH CAN YOU GET??
Here are some place names gone wrong:
Charlestina Assyria - hm. If you say so.
Brooklyn, you can kind of almost understand. But Jersey?
Yelena Rachel Zenobia. As in, "Fictitious country from the Princess Diaries." Fortunately this one is only hypothetical. Unfortunately, this means the perfectly reasonable names Yelena and Rachel were not actually used on a child instead of, oh, say, Heaven Leigh.
EDIT: LOL, as Allison points out below, I am thinking of GENOVIA, not Zenobia. Zenobia was a 3rd century queen of Palmyra who led her people in a war against Rome.
So what about Irelynn Maryn? Hey, that's two place names for the price of one - how about that for compensation!
Also, Maine. Why?
These two rough-and-tumble lads have their work cut out for them! Say hello to Tuff Robert and William "Wild Bill" Peter!! Can Knight Patriot come along to play, too?
Nothing says "I couldn't decide on any names and my spellcheck was broken" like the following charming monikers:
Saydie Alexsys Marie
Cherysh Angelina Mayjean Dores
Blade Nicholi Miley Delos looks dismayed at the thought of having to write out his full name in the future.
On the other hand, short, succinct, and completely bizarre names include:
Maddox Nickifer. NICKIFER??
Is it Xavier? Is it Zavier? Xzavier's parents never had to decide!
Alexxis Mercedes and Maxxim Michael were named for each other. Or were named for bonus points in Scrabble. Either way. Bonus points for Alexxis Mercedes sounding like "A Lexus Mercedes." I didn't know these names actually appeared in the wild!
And now, the winner for this week: Dreighzdyn Hazelle Violette. I think that's Dresden. Though I could, of course, be wrong.
Who am I kidding, folks? The real winner, as Allison again points out below, is Pxwpexwsshn. I believe it is Salish for "Vowels? We don't need no stinkin' vowels!" Or perhaps just Salish for, "Haha, let's see the white man call OUR kid's name on the school roster!"
