FIrst of all, I must say that this wonderful information comes from zipadeeday.com. They have some really neat things on their website for us humor people and so I travel over there frequently and see what is the latest. I have done a lot of research on odd and downright disgusting things that people name their kids but I found these names to be a little different. I find that the British often have very quirky behavior at times so it is not surprising that I enjoyed reading this collection of unusual names.
The top 20 unusual names that they came across were...
4. Zowie (for a hyperactive child, perhaps?)
6. Ice (The Ice Man Cometh)
11. Diesel (hopefully a boy)
16. Stone (Like Rock Hudson)
I found "Bean" and "Puppy" to be rather endearing nicknames but only till they graduated from training wheels to a 2 wheeler. I can't even comment on Maroon. And "Shy" and "Zowie" seem to be self-predicting. Of course you could combine some of these for middle names and get some nice combos like Zowie Bean, Shy Echo, Maroon Armani, or Shy Puppy. It's got possibilities.
