At a park a couple of days ago, I heard a mom hollering "Ireland, it's time to go home!". Ireland? Ookay.

Alec Baldwin's daughter is named Ireland.  Celebrities like to name their children after places, don't they?
I seen quite a few place names as personal names. Here's my list so far:
Memphis
London/ Londyn
Boston
Miami
Brisbane
Albany
Nigeria
Jerusala (does that count?)
Dundee
Egypt
Arizona
Paradise

Also, an unrelated name I saw today: Stencil

There is also a child that I know called Shadow. 

I really feel for these kids.

I thought there was a doctor at the hospital I transcribe for named Latrina, but I looked the name up and it was actually Lanetria.

Chelsea (as in Clinton)
Brooklyn (David and Victoria Beckham's eldest son)
Florence (as in Nightingale)
India
Paris (as in Hilton)

And no doubt loads more, but those came without me having to think about it much!

I work in a call center and I have spoken to at least one Latrina.  They are out there.

He was an elderly man, so no sibling names to compare it to. You have to wonder, though.

I'm embarassed to admit that my daughter and I have been watching Pretty Wicked Moms.  One of the children is Ledger and one is Amzie.  Although apparently Amzie is a family name.  But Ledger?  Really?

I just remembered going to a friend's party and meeting a guy named Nimrod ("Nim" to his friends).

He should claim to be called Nimby and refuse to ever enter anyone's back garden.
I see what you did there!

At a park a couple of days ago, I heard a mom hollering "Ireland, it's time to go home!". Ireland? Ookay.

I misread this as an internet meme "Go home, Ireland, you're drunk"

I go to a lot of kid centric places as i am joined at the hip with my 7 yr old DD and the names I hear..oof.  Some of the weirdest ones that obviously mom and dad thought would just make pwecious stand out are from the yummy mummy types.  Half the time I think they are calling to a girl and a boy comes over or vice versa.  I don't know how many times I have had people say to me "Oh, your DD's names are so old fashioned!" and it is said with something of a tone, like I am just not cool enough to come up with a name that has half the alphabet and no one can pronounce. 

And Hijinks, how the very warm place do you pronounce that????

Yesterday, my office got a call from a woman called "Korea". Yup, like the country, I checked.

It's a pretty sound, but a weird place to be named after!

I've heard a very similar name before and now I can't remember who it was. Arrgh! :-\
