@Chicago. LOL. NoVa - No Go in Tejano.

My husbands first car was a NOVA. That car sure did not live up to its name. It would run even when you turned it off.

even though that's his birthname, he did go by "leaf" for a long time (to fit in with his siblings.) that still counts as weird, 'eh?

It's "Picabo" Street, btw. I like the name. "Genevieve" was good for me because the kids couldn't make it rhyme with anything. "Genevieve the dead old weed" was the best they came up with, and that just didn't catch on at all.

My mother-in-law tried to get us to name our daughter Katerrhie or something like that. She works for an employment agency and came across a young woman with that name and liked it. Apparently it's a native American name, don't know what tribe.

 

Sounded to me like either the old-fashioned name for a sore throat (catarrh) or another name for a cat-breeder's business (cattery.) Anyway, can you imagine how many times in our daughter's life she would have this conversation:

 

Them: Katerrhie? That's an interesting name.

Her: Thanks. It's native American.

Them: Oh, are you native American?

Her: No.

 

This is the same woman who thought our name for a boy, Kai, was weird.

"Eggima"(lets not go there)

My maiden name was David - which precluded my mother naming my brother David (David Davis however, is a famous producer). I did like sitting next to Lisa John in shop class though - especially since the teacher preferred to call everyone by their last names only.

 

So when I married my husband, Dave, he didn't really want to take my name...

 

And there was a bit of a ruckus from my family when I wanted to name my oldest "Bowen David" and call him Bowie. My kids have boring internationally feasable names now. :(

 

Speaking of - no one mentioned Zowie Bowie ? (real name John).

 

I knew a girl named Candle when I was growing up.

 

Myself - I was just blessed with a name combination that resulted in a lot of mail to a dutch guy named David. Or a woman with half my name married to the dutch guy. And the Germans insisting that I spell it wrong.

 

But they never forget it!

I don't know what kind of drugs his parents were on when they named him but it must've been some good shit.
