I was reading the local newspaper yesterday and came across this unusual First and Middle name, LaTwinkle LaStar. Why would someone name their child that? I had to take a double look when I saw this. In my mind I was thinking what was on her mothers mind when she named that child. I think if I had a name like that I would have it changed. Do you know anyone with an unusual name? What is the strangest and most unusual name you have heard?

A friend who lives up north told me her other friend named her daughter Sunshine Daisies. I think thats a little odd and thank God my Mom didn't come up with that when she named me. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG AND TRUST IN GOD**[/b]

Hmmm......there is a saying....what is in a name? Name does not make you glorious, rather you make your name glorious. But sometimes you may find someone with strange name. True. And....the most unusual name I have ever come across is "Cheevee" And I have found this name in myLot..

Hey dear, why are you splashing the water on your own head? Did I mean Chevee? As far as I can see, I have written ChEEvee, which is not your name! There is an extra E there! If my eyes do not make me fool, then I can see your name is Chevee

It was a 5 or 6 year-old boy's name then: Vamshoddharaka Deshoddhraka Kanduri Venkata Sadananda Parameshwara Lakshmi Narayana Sarma[ could be abbreviated to: VDKVSPLN Sarma]. The unusual-ness about it is its length. It would be the only name perhaps the passport form would have all "the squares filled". This boy would be big man now. I wish he should have done well and gone to the US or Europe.I have heard that in Europe the Spanish have long names! I would like to be present as the Passport Officer in US or Europe struggles to read this name out in full, to find where this tiny person is waiting for his turn!!!

With a name like that, I am glad that his mother had to fill out any types of paperwork when he was growing up.. I would also change mine to something simpler, like Sue..

Bakar is not any unusual middle name! You should not interpret any name in your own language. Hundreds of thousands of muslim men have Bakar as their middle name.

One of the weirdest strangest names I ever heard is MeBone.When I was about 16 years old I had a friend named Mebone. She was my best friend. I asked her who named her that and why, she said her mother's best friend named her, and she's an indian, so I assumed that it was an Indian name. Not sure. Never looked it up.

Hi ?Chevee, What a silly woman to name her child with these names, I feel sorry for the child when the child grow up and yes I think the child will change her name too. Well I think the footballer David Beckham and his wife Victoria name their children after the places they have been, like Brooklyn and Roemeo. Tamara

That sounds like the name of a stripper, Chevee! LOL I used to have a game I played when I was a proofreader. I'd notice names. It was the only thing that kept me awake! LOL I've seen Frenchesca Frye (French Fry) and Hamilton Berger (Ham Burger) and... oh! My absolute favorite name is the name of a doctor I heard being paged over the paging system at Johns Hopkins Hospital once... the name was Dr. RichardPrick. You can guess that name, right? DickPrick? I had to make it one word to get past myLot's censors. I hope it works! I replaced a gal at a job once whose name was Velvet Flowers. I thought that was the coolest name ever! I don't think I'd want to be called Velvet, but it was a really cool name.

You brought this memory to mind when you said they sound like stripper names. Just this past year we had a couple of temporary come to work for the company and their names were LaPorche and Astee and my supervisor a man as usual said those names sound like stripper names.

LaTwinkle LaStar has to be the oddest name I've ever heard! That poor child! Her parents are just asking for kids to pick on her with that name. The oddest thing I've seen in a name and I've seen this a few times is the same first name as the last name.

Well there wouldn't be just one name which I would associate as an unusual name. A lot of Japanese and Chinese names sound weird and the even more are written weirdely.

I think one of the most unusual names I heard was several years ago. I worked in a daycare and one of the girls in my class was named Stormy. She was born during a hurricane and her parents named her that.

Why would you name your child that what were they thinking of. People tell me that my two youngest sons names are quite unusual. They are called Kian and Niall. I have noticed over the last few years Kian has become more popular. Another strange name that i came across was my friend at school her name was Brena she is the only one i have ever came across.

I could see Twinkle LaStar as a stage name but to have to be called LaTwinkle LaStar??? I have heard some strange names, or read about them in the newspaper or online but they didn't make an impression on me so I forgot them. hahaha

My ex husband's uncle named his daughter, Damnomore. It stands for d*mn no more children. He evidently had a lot of children and when the woman came up pregnant again, his first reaction was d*mn no more kids, so he thought that would be an appropriate name to name his last child. How silly, that the girl had to go through life with that name, I surely hope she changed it.

Will you believe? It is Alalala. When her parents were in good mood they used to call her Alalala la la la la... After a tiff between themselves, the parents used to scream at her saying Aaaaaaaaa... It's strange but true.

I find the name "LUZVIMINDA" unusual to be given to a girl at a young age. It refers to the three main islands in the Philippines, luzon, visayas, and mindanao. Lucy, Vicky or Minda are better.
