Does it annoy anyone else in a professional capacity? We have a high number of Asian pupils with traditional names, however to add a bit of uniqueness they all seem to spell the same name differently.
All pronounced the same, but a pain when trying to find a specific pupil in AD.

Wayne Rooney has named his son Klay Anthony Rooney.
Wayne said his initials spell out where he was conceived.

There was a girl called Reality in a school I did some work for a few years back.
Does Social Services not have a chat with the parents when they come up with novel names??

A girl was genuinely called "Princess-Consuella" (she also had 4 middle names and went by the first which was Heather).
Not even joking, and she knew she was named from Friends where Phoebe called herself Princess Consuella Banana Hammock!

We have a Richard Head on the staff.
A year or so back, I caught some trashy documentary on BBC3, which featured a mother screaming at her kid "Armani, blah blah blah." As she was clearly a chav, I think TK Maxx would have been a more appropriate name!

Drew peacock is one of my favourites. We also have a kid called Tiger Cox.

We have had Ocean, and Seven, and currently have Robbie Williams
Never mind "ethnic" names being spelled oddly, no parent seems to be able to spell Kieran (Kieron? Kieren?)
We do have an Armani (it's a boy) whose brother is called Devante
Mind you, my son is called Zoran - which is a perfectly good Serbian name and goes well with mrwITch's Serbian surname. Most people, knowing that we love Sci-fi, think we made it up!!
*@Zourous - is your Tiger a boy or a girl? We have a Tyger who is female

Not completely sure, i've just seen them on AD, but I think i've heard a reference to him being male.

What's the problem? It's a perfectly reasonable name. Easy to pronounce and spell, too. He loves his name and when he was young, if anyone mentioned it he would point out that their name was shared with lots of others but his wasn't (well, not in this country). Had we an English surname I wouldn't have done it because to my mind, that just sounds silly, but as we have the Serbian surname as well, it sounds right.

Unfortunately not - he's an engineering geologist

We have a student named Precious which seems a bit odd to me. Maybe the father's called Gollum.
