We hired a new girl recently.

Her name is Orange.

O-R-A-N-G-E.

But, it's pronounced "Or-Ahhn-Jay"

I can't even...

The sound, makes me think it's middle eastern(I think that's what I'm trying to say lol), but why spell it like that...poor child at least you looked past her name

I used to have to sort thru applications in my old job and some of the names are insane.

There were a few I wouldn't call back because I literally couldn't figure out how to pronounce the names.

I've been hearing this same shit for years now. It seems like names like this and La-a {pronounced Ladasha} should be pretty popular if so many people have them.

Gilbert Gilbert Gilbert the 3rd went to my high school. He would be 37 now. Stupid names are more popular now, but not new.

The name protectors will be on here in a minute defending the parents' right to give their child whatever beautiful name they make up or read off an ingredient label.  Whatever.  I grew up with a name that no one could spell or pronounce... so all I can say is, I will not do that to MY children.  You can name your child whatever you want, for whatever reason.  All I will do is teach my children not to pick on kids with different names.
