It's funny because I imagine at some point in time most names were 'weird', just because they are not heard of or very often. After a while you say it over and over especially if you know the child and it all becomes insignificant.
My friend named her son Shearen, literally because at the time (11 years ago) she loved Alan Shearer so just swapped the R for an N. Completely different and unusual at the time but now, I don't even think anything of it and neither does anybody else x
I am at present trying to think of 'different' names. Not one that is ridiculous that my child will get laughed at etc but just something that's not really really popular. Although I do love traditional names like Charlie, Elizabeth, Harry etc I think we will go for different x
My mother in law was working in the health service as a nurse and was visiting homes and went to the home of a mother with a new baby. When she got there she asked what the baby girl's name was and was told "Pocohantas"
Another friend is a doctor and had a patient visit with new baby. They weren't from this country and weren't native English speakers and had discovered a name that they had seen various places associated with girls and boys and liked it so they named the baby "Pajamas" with emphasis on the 'PAJ'... oh well...
Yep, seen some pretty weird ones. ABCDEF, pronounced "ab-sid-euf". That ones pretty out there.
I have never seen it with a f at the end. I have seen Abcde, pronounced "Absedee." I think that one was the choice of some lazy parents. Granted, my sons' names are unusual, at least here, but they all have meaning.
