And I recently encountered this first name written at work:  Urmagesty.  It's a girl.

Did you curtsey? ;D

Oh gosh, now I get it. I read it as "Irma-guesty."

Did I ever tell you guys about the  time I came up with 26 different ways to spell "Katie"? Most of them are minor variations, but I did come up with one really odd one - Chaeti.

I used that one for about a week before I got sick of it.

Found while reading an article: two of a set of three siblings are named McKewan (boy) and Ainsley (girl).

What's wrong with those?

Yeah, Orphan Black had a character called Ainsley, and it wasn't even the oddest name in the show (as much as I like her, that goes to Cosima for me).

Not that I knowingly have any cats with human names, but it would not surprise me if somewhere in the United States, there was a child named Magic, Domino, Nani or Koa.

Domino Harvey: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domino_Harvey

Koa Misi: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koa_Misi

 ;D

Ha! I knew it.  I thought of Magic Johnson, but that is a nickname.

I've never heard of Ainsley for a girl (I only know of one other person called Ainsely and that's Ainsley Harriott, who's male) or McKewan as a first name for anyone at all.  Is McKewan a common firstname where you live?

I'm 36 - I've known a number of girl Ainsleys about my age.

But I just can't get behind first names with capital letters in the middle of them. No McKewan, no McKenna (a new baby I know), no McKenzee and McKenzie (two girls in DD's class at school).

I don't know if it's common, but it's not unusual. Ainsley is pretty normal to see. McKewen is a surname first name, like Davis, Lucas, Lewis, Leroy. (I personally know people with all these names, first names AND last names.)
It's usually Mackenzie not McKenzie, and referred to by Mack. Usually named after a Grandparent.

There was a female Ainsley on West Wing. It's a somewhat trendy name right now.
