Girl in my class in high school - looked a lot like the Drill Thrall from the original Star Trek series (maybe a bit shorter and only 17 at the time).  IOW, not flat chested by any means.

The family's last name was pronounced a lot like one of the more common synonyms for a woman's chest. 

I think that she was very glad to marry a man with a last name that didn't cause people to do a double take when introduced to her.

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!

Tell your husband you've settled on Galen Matthew, and that's that. ;) See how long it takes to compromise after.

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.
