I'm tired of goofy guys' names, like Flynn, Tucker, Skyler, and Todd, Stewart, Geeves, Stefan, Oscar, Cleetis, and Leslie. These are not real names! These are goofy sounding and need to be un-made up. Any father who names their son Skyler has pretty much mapped out his son's future of daily wedgies in the hallways at middle school.

hey buster!!.. my real name is one of those names you mentioned.. lol.. well one of the more normal ones.. it begins with T..

its not tucker, that would be a f...ker of a name to go through school with.. imagine..

ive got a child with two dykes.. he is 3.. if it was a girl, they were going to call her Queenie.. their surname is KIng.. i kind of liked it.. she would of hated it, no doubt..

i like unusual names.. but i think America takes the cake for strange names.. maybe they just seem weird to Australians??

its the name given the the new palnet found. Why do the scientists today call planets or stars found today such ridiculous names?
What happened to the old easy to remember stuff like Jupiter or Pluto? oh and Earth?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I think that for really strange names, you have to enter the world of the celebrity. (I can still remember the incredulity when Frank Zappa named his daughter Moon Unit!)

BTW - Genghis Khan means 'Great Emperor. His real name was Temüjin Borjigin.

Braunwyn (more commonly Bronwyn) is Welsh and is definitely feminine - It means 'White breasted' Although, having said that - in the Welsh language, the suffix wyn usually indicates the masculine. The feminine ending should be wen. (But that's only for geeks like me these days!)

thanks for the info!
i'm almost positive that she spells her name the way i have here. i think the suffix wyn is what made me feel it was masculine too.
i don't know if this is relevant but she is a lesbian...irony?

I think you'll find the wyn version is the most used these days. I suppose people think it gives the name a more 'Celtic' feel to it.

Ealdwita snippet alert........

"Braunwen is the Welsh goddess of Love and Beauty. Her name has been translated as 'white-breasted', 'fair-breasted', or 'white raven', and ravens and starlings are her animals. The Alder tree belongs to her. She was regarded as a moon goddess, as well as the Daughter of the Sea. Since her attributes are similar to those of the Roman goddess, Venus, she was known as the Venus of the North Sea. She is known as "the giver of bracelets." Worshipped throughout Celtic lands, including Manx, Branwen is the keeper of the magickal Cauldron of Plenty, and she governs regeneration, growth, and healing. She is honored during each waxing moon as the Maiden, and the full moon in June is Branwen's moon. She is one of the the five goddesses of Avalon -- called by some the Lady of the Lake herself -- and along with Rhiannon and Cerridwen, is one of the three mother goddesses of Britain. Like many Celtic goddesses, she was once a real person, a princess of the house of Llyr who was wed to the High King of Ireland. An insult at her wedding feast brought war between Ireland and Wales. Her brother, Bran the Blessed, was killed during the war to rescue her from oppression at the Irish court, and when she later returned to Wales, she died of a broken heart."

Well spud is rather odd ,as are Mitt and Tagg .lol

Cleopatra and Ghengis ,are both names of the time,and where they came from . I'd have to look up Cleopatra ,but ghengis is the Mongolian word for overlord I believe .
  Hiya Simbi ? is that your real name, I love it, but Spud is a nickname given by Wurzels in Darkest Somerset England.They call you Spud if you arn't a "native" of the area,by the way a Wurzel is a Turnip or a Swede, as they call them here,which you probably know is a root vegetable. While Mackems are born in Durham, North East England. So they call us Spud and we call them Wurzel.
