Tell Us Someone's Name That Made You Go, "That's One I Haven't Heard Before!"

Boring names need not apply.

First, let me say there’s nothing wrong with having a typical name. Names like John, Chris, Emily, and Kate are utilitarian and get the job done.

Bonus: you never have trouble finding your name on a Coke.

But every once in a while you meet someone whose parents were not about that noise and WENT FOR IT.

NBC

For example, you might know someone who named their baby after a surprising character in a book, film, or TV show.

Paramount

Or maybe a friend/acquaintance/living legend told you they named their baby "Cheese," which apparently a handful of people do every year.

It's also possible you know someone who got real creative with their name choice and sort of just made it up.

"Audio Science" is the actual name actress Shannyn Sossamon gave her kid. Celebs get a lot of attention for their surprising name choices, but regular folks do it all the time too.

You might even know a guy named Ynot Bubba.

Virgin Produced

Yes, that's a real guy's real name (although he wasn't born with it — he had it legally changed). Still, if you meet a guy named "Ynot Bubba," you don't forget it!

Whatever the name is that made you stop and think, “That’s a new one!” we want to hear it! Put the name and where you heard it in the dropbox below and it could be featured in a future BuzzFeed post!
