Well there was a very small crop of interesting names in today’s births column.

Shakira Anne Keir: Named after someone’s favourite singer perhaps? I thought it also noteworthy that her parents’ names also have unusual spelling (Darin and Krystle).

Kaidyn Rocco Williams: This one follows the very fashionable -aden form with a bit of exciting spelling for good measure.

snahon: decade? ;-P Right now, I have a “Mykel” in one class; although a quick Google tells me that it is probably a foreign spelling. Odd nonetheless. Nice kid though, so I don’t think he’s from a Bogan-home.

Somewhere in Cleveland there’s some guy named Al Kida – K – I – D – A… He’s freaking out!

Wonder if it’s true that composer Carl Orff (“Carmina Burana”) had a brother called Firk?

lol snahon, let alone pronounce them. your diploma of education will now have to include a unit on pronuncuation of names

Isn’t that same spelling as the singer? Perhaps they should have ramped it up a bit with something like Shahkyrah

I feel so sorry for the teachers in a decade when they won’t have a clue how to spell any of their students names.
