Baby names that make you want to laugh- or cry?

Here's a list of baby names that I've come across- on Yahoo, on blogs, or just by Google, that people have actually named their babies. at first I just start laughing, then start crying for those unfortunate children. get ready for the big, the bad, and the ugly.

Girls:
Joseph (that's right. Joseph it is. do you like Joseph Isabelle, or Joseph Marie better?)
Quebec, nickname Becca
Novalee
Liberty Belle
Chynna (like China)
Scotlyn (because Scotland is just such a masculine name, you have to add the -lyn)
Rwanda (hey, who WOULDN'T want to be named after a psychotic nation of genocide?)
Passion
Oval
Candle
Poverty
Graycelynn (extra Ys and Ns are always fun. As is combining two unrelated names)
Mercury Sappho (yes, that's right. Mercury, the male Roman god, and Sappho, from the isle of Lesbos…)
Zandreigh
Ohara Blythe
Boston
Brezlyn James (oh, yes, I'm sure any footballer would love to take Brezlyn James to prom)
Praline
Dexter
Clovis
Caribou

Boys:
Cork
Mace
Rose
Cadei (like Katie)
Lakoda (can't even spell it right!)
Morrgann
Eiyenne (like Ian)
Trig (as in, Trig Palin)
McCalin (combo of McCain and Palin, found right here on Yahoo answers last year)
O'Bama (another interesting choice, though I do admire his politics over McCain's or Palin's)
O'Baidan (I think this is a combination of Obama and Biden… again, not entirely sure…)

What do you think of these absurd names? What insane names have YOU come across?

ahahahaha Liberty Belle. And Passion… there's a future hooker.

Here are some I've seen

Girls:
Oreo
Earl (saw that today in fact)
Mydysynn (ugliest version of Madison to date)
Jezebel (said they wanted a biblical name… haha)
Cookie (stripper alert!)
Rhapsody
Nevaeh (yes, we've all seen it, but I think it's RIDICULOUS)
Coco
Greggori
Bambi (seen this a couple times)
La'Fay'Elle (punctuation included)

Boys:
Hero
Lauren (no joke)
Castro (who doesn't want to be named after a communist?)
Johnsie
Choo

My favorites are Poverty, Praline, Caribou, and all those lovely political monstrosities. especially Praline- I mean, really. my mom and I make those every Christmas, I might as well name my daughter it. *eyeroll* Rwanda is a lovely choice as well. And ugh, it's bad enough when girls have masculine names, there are ACTUALLY people who DO give males female names?? That's when the tears really start coming.

Le-A, as stated previously. Abcde (absiddy. Sounds like abcess!). Nevaeh, how could you forget backwards Heaven? ESPECIALLY when the name doesn't even SPELL heaven. (Like the one I saw earlier- Naavuh. Reminds me of the Na'vi from Avatar. :)

OHEMMGEE!!!! UR KRAZEE! Dos namez r butyfull….I LUV THEM!!!!

Not.

Only the politicain ones made me laugh.

I will say that I like Novalee, spelled Novalie, and Blythe is wonderful.

You guys! Trig is not that bad. As much as I hate Sarah Palin, the name doesn't seem nearly as distasteful as some others I've seen.

Don't forget the one's the celebs use on their children:

Sparrow
Apple
