Original Starting post for this thread:
And I'm not talking about names from other cultures which sound amusing in English. I'm talking about parents giving these names to their American (or Canadian, British etc i.e. English-speaking) children.

I just read an article about a newborn baby named "Hashtag", since, you know, like, it's a cool word now. The article linked me to many more stories about parents who think they are being creative with their kids names.

Examples include:

Atheist Monoxide Zero Cactus Felon Yoda Travesty Fukegan (Fuck Again?) Smarfy (?) Clitoria Facebook (A man in Egypt) Like (also facebook fans - in Israel) Manson Craigslist Abcde Lemonjello Pussycat Doppleganger (who was hit by a car after somehow surviving to age 39 in Springfield, IL) Young Boozer (the third! A candidate for Alabama State Treasurer)

What the fuck are these people thinking?

Or with highly unusual spellings of more common names

Mahkynzzyie (seriously - the kid will be 12 before they can spell it) Me'Chell Maddissynn Jooly Ekzayvior Jossellynne Jaykub

Wasn't there someone in the forums who liked turning on that guy (Mr. Mister)?

Did he start an 80's band?

I knew a woman who named her son "Mister".

I can only trace my family back 5 generations. Prior to that, our last name was altered when they landed in the US by either dropping an "ley", an "ly", or an "le"...

The story goes, it was changed to further remove ourselves from the British/Welsh/Scottish people who had similar names and that we didn't particularly like to be associated with.

Yes, it was Russia. But the Republics always retained their identity and considered themselves *raped by Russia.*

My family is from Ukraine, Lithuania and actually Russia.

*p.s. 4 of my 8 great grandparents were born in Russia. :)

And other ancestors also from Russia. It was the Russian Empire at the time (last one left in 1921), so not all of these places are in modern day Russia. Ones I know of are in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine (mostly) and Moldova.

Eastern Europe is so much more than Russia ;)

The only reason so many people know of their relation to royal families is because their family trees are so meticulously documented and have been for centuries. Most people who become noteworthy do not come from such backgrounds, and thus the family tree of, say, Albert Einstein is not known very far back.

p.s. 4 of my 8 great grandparents were born in Russia. :)

In my time on these fora, I've heard from at least a dozen people claiming that they're related to the Queen of England.

The furthest that I managed to dig up info on my family is back to my great grandparents. That's it. I come from a very small family, and we're all from Eastern Europe. I'm not related to any queens or any of you on SLS :).
