'Brooklyn' is also a maddeningly common name for a girl.

As well as gargoyles.

I call that the Star Trek reunion show with the amount of Star Trek actors doing voice overs.

From an MSN article on "unconventional parenting strategies that work."  Supposedly it's to make them tough, as in "A Boy Named Sue."

There was a woman in Ladies Home Journal who named her baby George Bailey. And she ended her article with a pun about It's A Wonderful Life, so yep, it was on purpose  ::)

Okay, I only heard it said and have no idea how it's spelled, but on Friday, I swear I heard a mother call her little girl "Mail".
Or "Male" which would be even more puzzling...

Could it have been 'Mel' for Melanie or Melissa?  Particularly when spoken with a southern accent it could sound like 'mail'.

Not sure if I've mentioned this one before, but a former coworker named her son "Eyan".  She usually pronounced it eee-ahn, but every so often would pronounce it "ayy-ahn".  Never did figure out how it was supposed to be pronounced.

I saw an elderly lady with the name 'Riceal" the other day. Just sounds like rice cereal to me.

What? That's just... no. No. I refuse to have the name of a place I would love to visit some day be butchered in such a manner. Because to me that's what it sounds like....

I wonder if it is Scott and Lynn, put together. I don't care for it either.
