I don't know why I didn't think of this one sooner. The young woman I mentioned in a previous post named Dayna, her dad also has a somewhat unusual name. Well it's not such an odd name but the spelling is unusual. His name is Garrie (pronounced just like Gary). Now the overwhelming majority of guys I've known with that name it's been spelled Gary and I've maybe known one or two that spelled it Garry. He's the only man I've known with this spelling and I think it's quite unusual, at least where I live. Maybe it's more common in other places but I have no idea. Even the story of how he was named that is kind of weird. His dad picked it out of the phone book, true story, and I guess his mom liked it too and went along with it. But, the unusual spelling is because it was the LAST name of someone listed in the telephone book. The guy has told me this himself (we're friends), just not how or why his dad was looking for baby names in the phone book. Maybe I'll get an explanation about it someday. He has one older brother named Scott. Not even a unique spelling LOL.
Ed. ETA: I just think going through the phone book (for whatever reason) and seeing a name and thinking I like that for the new baby! is really weird. I actually like the name Gary, but I don't like that spelling of it.
