Angel Hair (first & last names)
Good heavens, it's a baby, not a pasta.  :o

I have her "accompaniment" here in buffalo, ny -- one of the kids in my nephews class is named Kahleemahri ( say it out loud)

Were the parents trying to punish their kid??  :o

Lol, that reminds me - I was recently sharing some possible baby names with my brother, and his reply was a deadpan: "Why do you hate your child?"   (I wasn't offended, we're very close and I thought it was hilarious. Plus, the name he was responding to was one DH and I had already gone off ourselves so wasn't a big deal).   

I'm seriously stuck on boys names though.  I knew how bad it was when I saw this thread come up in my Unread Replies list and thought "Ooh, maybe I'll spot something there!" ....yep, I'm so desperate that I thought a list of horrendous names might inspire me.    ::)    DH keeps saying "We've still got 4 months!" and he's right, but so far he says "Nope" to everything I suggest, so I think it's going to be a long 4 months.  The only name we can agree on already belongs to my toddler nephew, who we see a lot of, so that would just make life a headache for my entire family!

In my kids' school there is a Sesleigh (I assume it's a girl). Could it be pronounced like "Cecily"?

No. Cecily has three syllables. Sesleigh has two. Sez-lee, is how I'd say the second.

Gidget -- (first time I ever heard of a real human being with that name -- and she graduated from law school. I don't know about being defended by a lawyer named Gidget)

Friend of mine was married to a Gidget for a time. That was indeed her birth name.

Oh, don't be silly, the third syllable is clearly silent!   ;)

(Seriously, I'd lay odds that it actually is pronounced Cecily)

I was reading it Ses-lay (rhymes with sleigh) but it could be more like Sez-lee (rhymes with Leslie).

In the paper today (Births section):

De'Nallee.  A boy, yes, a boy.

Strangely enough, his siblings have more mainstream names:  Michael, Alycia, Bailey, and Kaitlyn.  I tried to figure out where the De'Nallee came from (combos of parent's name?) but couldn't seen anything in the article.

I wonder if it is one of those place of conception name after a trip to Denali National Park in Alaska, USA. But made more Unique with spelling.

I actually thought that too because that is the only pronunciation that I could up with.  But while Denali would be sort of a cool name, De'Nallee just isn't.  Poor kid.

I'm not a fan of starting all your kids' names with the same letter, but if you start doing it, don't change your mind all of the sudden.

Case in point, this family in my database today (not actual names):
Kenneth & Karen Smith, parents
Kimberly, Kristopfer, Kurt, Kourtney, Jane, & Khloe, kids

Am I the only one thinking Jane is the milkman's daughter? (Jane is not adopted.)
