That sounds like an urban legend. Back when I was a kid, Mr. Rogers had a local show in Pittsburgh which I watched. There was a character on it named "Nosmo King".

Actually, having just now done a search, there was a performer who went by that name: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._Vernon_Watson

I recall hearing a joke about a woman who named her newborn twins after "two famous doctors at the clinic", Syphilis and Gonorrhea.

One hospital I worked at had a patient named Levaquin, like the antibiotic. It was a Rehab facility where I was doing an Administrative internship, and every morning, the House Manager would run through inpatient lists, and anybody new to the group would usually ask if it was a typo.

One of the problems with this topic is that all the urban legends come to the surface. I'm surprised no one has mentioned the mythical twins called Lemonjello and Oranjello, or the famous La-a ("Ladasha").

^^I was going to say that about the twins named Syphillis and Gonorrhea. The way I heard the joke, it was SyPhyllis and PregNancy, accent on second syllable.

I MUCH prefer interesting made up names over the infinite and quite frankly sometimes stupid spellings of common names.

But too be fair, is there a name in existence that isnt "made up"?


The list made up boys names includes Brigham and Charleston though which...Brigham Young University and CHarleston South Carolina might disagree that its made up.

Have you heard any interesting names? A girl at my sons school is named D'Ashley which i dont care for much.
I have heard non americans having names like dickson .

I know a hispanic guy called Hesoos but it was actually Jesus

The oddest name I saw, was Itchy Scratchy. I was working for a mailing company, doing some data entry, and came across that name.

The weirdest names I ever heard of were what drugged out Frank Zappa named his kids, Dweezel and Moon Unit.
In case you were wondering Dweezel was his son and MoonUnit was his daughter.

There are also Ahmet and Diva. They aren't kids anymore. Moon Zappa is 52.

Zappa was pretty well-known for being anti-drug.

I have a hard time "encoding" and remembering names of people that aren't common names. Like, Kaylia or Saylor. They're just harder for me to learn and remember.

There's this woman I know whose granddaughter is named "Splash". hm.
