A friend of mine called his daughter "Cylindria" because he is really into motorbikes and into BMW's in particular. He named his daughter after the bike's cylinder!!! She kinda grew into the name, but is having a lot of teasing at school about it. He still thinks it's a great name for his daughter!

Because they care more about being original than what their kids will actually think about what they are named.

I think alot of people start naming their kids after celebraties, and we all know how weird their kids' names are! Me personally, I'm sticking to the normal names. I don't need to be like the famous people.

There is a big difference is unique and just plain stupid.  ;) I wanted my kids to have names you didn't hear 20 times a day. I wanted them to be able to go to school and when their name was called know it was them the teacher was speaking to and not one of the other dozen Michaels, Jennifers or Adains or Caitlins that were being called. I also wanted to make sure they weren't stupid sounding names that would get them made fun off on a daily basis. I think I did pretty well, my oldest daughter is named Raina, my son is named River and youngest daughter is named Romma. My son did have his name on a spelling test once, he thought that was pretty cool ;D

My mom made up my name, which seemed to work out just fine. Just glad that she didn't go completely ghetto on me...like Shinaqualesha or something like that!!! I got lucky.

I don't understand why parents name their kids with weird names either.  They don't seem to realize that whatever name they give their child remains with them through life.
I do not understand what is wrong with normal typical names like Ryan, David, Daniel, Michael, Robert, Mary, Susan, etc. My feeling is that the parents must be mixed up or
they are trying to be different. Well, if that's their goal, they are definitely successful.

Normal / common names has their benefits as they're a little more difficult to find online for privacy reasons. I have seen some creative unique names, but I don't think I could name my children this way either as I'm sure the name teasing will be an issue.

I think there's some parents how try to give their kids unique names and unique spellings of traditional names, but as long as it's in the realm of spoken language, I can deal. It's the people who straight up make NONSENSE names for their kids that I don't understand. It's like they're asking for their child not to be taken seriously in the real world!

I think parents just want their kids to have unique names instead of the every day normal ones that every other person has. My aunt named all 3 of my cousins unique names; Neve, Nolan & Norah, all of which are Gaelic descent.

I THINK NAMING A CHILD IS VERY IMPORTANT. NAMES HAS MEANINGS, AND SOME MEANINGS CAN BE DISTURBING.

Some parents name their kids with weird names, thinking that this would make them unique. God knows, what the kids would say when they grow up, and dislike their names.
