on a different but related note, how do you pronounce the girls' name "Siobhan"? i have never met anyone called this nor heard anyone say it out loud (or if i have, then i havent registered it as this name).
for future reference, just in case
I have a friend called Siobhan. Usually it's pronounced like this: 'ShvON', with the emphasis being placed on the 2nd syllable. However I could be wrong, or jst different tho, if you keep in mind I've an Aussie accent :p: But anyway that's how I usually pronounce it

I know a Kiyl, and a Kaine, and a Jardine (yes they're chavs).

for amusement, anyone in lancashire, get the burnley express and look at the names in the birth section, my personal favorite was Jaxx, and anything with Amee added on the end seems popular.

Oh and what about names that are bad enough but then someone changes the spelling, i once knew a Jayson.

I can cope with Sian, Siobhan, and Niamh - irish or welsh names, but at least they are propper names and not made up. I went to school with a Philomena and a Dympna though so I suppose I'm used to irish names.

Oh and one of the trick-or-treators called his little sister 'pud', not sure if that was a nickname or a real name.

A friend of mine noticed that when his daughter was born she was small, round and yellow. As such, he named her Melanie.

i can confirm she really is called Bo. Yes, like bo peep.

Sian can be pronounced "Sharn" or "Sy-ann". We had two girls in my year, one of each spelling.

if there's a ^ that means it's Sharn, unless the parents are just illiterate.

I read in the newspaper a while ago that a man, who's name i can't remember so well call him Bob, (but that doesn't really matter), named his son Bob V2, as in Bob version 2, replacing Bob with what his real name is.
