We get some really frustrating spellings too. "Dougliss" (Douglas) for a girl, "Lorin" for Lauren, lots of names with extra "e" s added (Jaydee, pronounced Jade)

My name is pretty unusual in that I have only met one other one in real life (Lois) although it isn't that out there, just unusual in the UK)
In teaching you definitely see some wacky spellings. Siobhan was always my favourite. I taught in a school with two girls called Shuvon.

This is our no.1 boys name at the moment I love it!! My ds3 is Logan (wolverine) so may as well continue the marvel line

La-a has to be the most awful one I've seen

Howling at Donald McDonald. What age group do you teach? My eldest is 16 this Yr and my youngest at school (nursery is 4) and I'm finding here that the wackier names seem to be phasing out. Most of Williams class have old, traditional names.

I teach 11-18. Donald McDonald was actually at school with my sister. The worst bit? He had red curly hair. Like Ronald McDonald.

I think it depends on the area. I worked close to Glasgow city centre in a pretty deprived area, where the kids had more unusual/rough names, whereas now that I'm not in the city they tend to have more traditional names, even though it is large towns I usually work in.

In my last school there were three Lucy's in the one class. It was a tiny class with only 12 girls and 5 boys. 2 of the boys were called Josh. Both are okay names, but just really common in that area. I work somewhere different now and I only teach 2 Lucy's and one Josh out of about 200+ pupils. The schools are only about 5 miles apart!

I totally agree with this, I think a few years ago everyone wanted a unique name and so made them up! I think now traditional names are are making a comeback. Not necessarily popular names just not made up ones!!
