    I feel so bad for kids saddled with those names. No adult wants to be named Princess or Quongajay.

    When I was substitute teaching I came across some interesting ones. also there were many awkwardly awful spellings for things like Bob just to be unique.

    Btw I did only Highschool.

    I dont mind ethnic names. But I draw the line and just throwing scrabble chips on the floor to see what it comes up with. I also can't stand creative spellings of names. I remember when I was subbing I called out a girls name(wish I could remember what it was) and she threw a fit and said "Everyone calls me that and its wrong." In my head I like "thats cause your ******* mother couldn't spell your name right, get used to it honey."
    Obey the whip!

    Smile like you mean it.

    A lot of the kids when they were paying attention would actually stop you before you said their given name and tell you what name the preferred to go by in fact.

    Leia is an older name, but originally was pronounced Leah. Not to say Star Wars didn't influence those name choices, especially with pronunciation.

    My favorites were the ones that were phonetic type spellings. Or portions of the name that were 'silent' for just he sake of having an unusually spelled name.
