4. I deal with a lot of data every day, and one of my client's first and
middle names is "Wing Man". can't say his last name due to confidentiality, but it makes the whole thing even better (if you can believe it) :D

24. Once saw a wedding notice in which the bride's name was
Cookie Jane.

I had a high school classmate whose name was Rhee Kay.

One of my grad school roommates had a Vietnamese friend who given name was My Dung. However, it is pronounced "Mee Yoong."

Two trendy Japanese names that raise eyebrows among English speakers are Mami (pronounced "Mommy") and Saiko (pronounced "Psycho").

32. Kansas Lumbago
My great-aunt.

Her father didn't like his father-in-law. The man was always complaining about his "lumbago."...among other things.

So Great Aunt Bay's grandfather said he hoped they would name a child after him....and they did. Sorta...

We called her Aunt Bay. Never Kansas and never Lumbago.

I know of a few chaps called Glynn from Wales.

Be careful that he does develop an obssession with leeks, dafodils, and male-voice choirs. -Only joking-

40. My ex's father was Ambrose
And his mother was Mabel. Just very old fashioned.

I went to school with a Tamar.

Had I been thinking clearly, I would have named a son and daughter Smegma and Anthrax. I think those are lovely names.

53. Phuc
Went to school with girls named Sparkle, Sunshine and Rainbow. There was a boy named Phuc (pronounced the worst possible way) at school too.

The names that worry me most are ones that imply behavior. Don't name your kid Damien or Jesus, okay? Connotations like that aren't fair. Neither is Angel (he isn't one,) Chastity (teen mom,) or Christian (what if he converts?)
