I saw one today that made me go hmmmmm. One was a boy named Aksel (Axel I'm assuming).

Hebrew and yes, variant of Axel. http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/1/Aksel

I saw a Shamonica today at work. This would not normally seem too strange to me except somehow I misread it as Sharmonica, which made me think of a shameful harmonica (or a harmonica of shame).

My mind goes all kooky about 2 pm.  :o

Can't decide between spelling it Shawn or Shaun? Why not go for both at once?

"Shauwn"

This was for a grown married woman as well.

I was just at an AR assembly at my daughter's school.  Apparently there's a girl there named Jdynn.  I assume it's pronounced Jayden?  Also, I know a Lyberty, pronounced Liberty.  I'm sorry, but when I see that one, I just can't help saying it with a long I.

Saw this one the other day.  Autumn's Hope Lastname.  No, that is not a typo.  Her first name is Autumn's.  I know this because I asked her, making sure it was not a typo in our computer system.  Very interesting name.

That - is going to be a hard one to go by.

"I've lost my math notebook."

Not quite but close. Axel/Aksel is the Scandinavian version of the Hebrew name Absalon. The Axel spelling is common in Sweden but I associate Aksel with Norway.

Just saw one on facebook.  Chloey.  I love the name, think it is beautiful, and would not be against using it for a daughter.  HOWEVER, what is wrong with spelling it Chloe?  I don't particularly like it spelled with a K, either, but the y is all wrong to me.

Same people who started spelling Zoe "Zoey."  It's like their brains can't wrap around the fact that the E is pronounced like an EY and they have to spell it out for it to make sense.

It would sort of make sense if she went by her middle name, along the lines of those Puritan names that were an entire Bible phrase.  (and now I have the urge to create a character named "Charity Never Faileth" just so "Fail" could be her nickname.)

Oh, dear. That would be hilarious.

"Onwards, to the breach! Danger is my middle name!!!"

"Yeah? Well, Fail is my middle name. I'm staying home."

Saw this on a parenting site.... they named their child "Sing Praises" and yes, they do call her Sing Praises, along with probably about a thousand other nick names, or so her mother said.
