    I've always liked Tristram Shandy, apparently an unusual name even in 1759 or whenever.

    Why would someone call their child 'Oak'?

    I'm going to be traditional and go along the lines of Jack, James, or Isobelle.

    I will save the daft names for my pets. Lysander the fish ftw.
    I think Oak is nice. Very grounded and earthy. Makes me think of someone who works the land, or with animals or trees.

    My kids are going to have traditional names (as I said before, Elizabeth and Alexander), but as this thread was about unusual names, I decided to post some wacky ones I liked :p:

    My fish is going to be called Urpgore.

    I sympathise completely. I'm a Felix, which I've grown to be OK with, but 9/10 people saying "like the cat (food)?" does start to grate. Alot. My brother has it worse though, he's Fergus. *Shudder*. My parents are unkind.
    I actually adore the name Felix. There is something so majestic about it.

    Until you, like me, have suffered humilation because your parents gave you a STOOPID name, you will never know the teasing and miss-spellings.
    I know all about that. For years I have introduced myself and people have gone "what, you're called Aladdin? Where is your magic lamp then?" I'm frequently met with shouts of "how's Jasmine?" and "can I have a ride on your magic carpet".

    It's either Aladdin, or Elaine, or E-lar-nin (because they can spell it but not pronounce it), or Elaine-in, or Elly, or Ali, or Alenin, or Alanin, or Alarnin. ARG!

    What is so difficult about Elanin?

    But you know what, I would totaly inflict the same pain on my kids :p: character building, if you ask me.

    I do like Shakespearean baby names. Only the more normal ones though, even I'm not sadistic enough to name my child something like Goneril or Jaquenetta.

    I like Shakesperian names too like Regan or Juliet- they sound so dignified lol. I have a bit of a funny name- Fionnuala (Irish for fair shoulders lol)- I go through phases of liking it/hating it but secretly I love being a bit different even if I moan about it constantly when it's spelled/pronounced wrong!

    I love Irish baby names and the stories behind them, just don't know whether I would want a child of mine to have to go through life starting every converstion with something like this 'My name's Fionnuala...no not Fiona...Finn-ooh-la...you know what just call me Foo.' as I have and will.

    Yeah, that's a boy's name, eg Devon Malcolm.
