I know children named Zero, Season and Imagine
I knew a Clover, Moonbeam and Apple growing up. They were siblings.
Quoting littleacorn:My youngest's name is Oakley Acorn and our last name starts with K. We get TONS of complements on his name and other kids just think he's cool. No one has ever, to my knowledge made fun of him for his name.

My idiot ex wanted to name our son Dookie. Wtf? That sounds like something that belongs in a toilet!

I'm in the process of researching my family tree. I'm amazed at some of the names my ancestors had. Unusual names are a trend right now, but it's not the first time the trend has happened.
In my ancestory, I have the following names in a direct line from me to them (most in the 1700-1800's)
Amerika (1st generation immigrant)ExperienceDesireRoyalRansomLucretiaEbenezerIchabodJabin (Twice- this name is a 2nd or 3rd generation Mayflower descendant)Attaresta MelistaPhilemonMindwellTheophiliusThankfulMercyDeliveranceLuna (Another Mayflower Descendant, and also Jabin the 1st's wife)TryphosaJemimaI also had a step-Great-Grandpa named Justin Case, and another named Charlie Brown. They were the 2nd and 3rd husbands of my dad's Grandmother.
I don't thinkdifferent names are bad, but crazy names that you have to ask how to say it is wayyyy off.... For people like me ( my name is Brittany) I went to school with what seemed like one out of ever 10 girls had the same name.. So I tried to make sure my kids had names that you don't hear everyday... Lilliana (my daughter) Maknelee (my son)
