I'll go along with that. That's why I had a poodle named Banjo, still have a Chihuahua named Mandy Lynn and my current poodle is named Stelling (and I'm sure you can figure that one out).

Sherry: ".... I'm sure you can figure that one out."

One time we got a rescue (?) dog thru our vet.... off-white, short(ish)haired .... maybe heeler, German shepherd and who-knows what cross.  We told the kids they could choose the name.  So, "Lassie" she was!!

When my nephew Noe More had a daughter, I encouraged him to name her Lillian Elisabeth More so I could call her Lil' Bit More.

He wisely declined to take my advice.

The limits of my originality end with naming a black and white dog "Oreo".
Yeah, my daughter took over the naming of pets after that.

True story: The Mrs. wanted to get a Westie and name it "Mr. MacGregor" from the Peter Rabbit books, or "Mac" for short. We had a friend named Mac (actually Malcolm, but he hated it - "Call me Mac. Only my mother can call me Malcolm."), so she asked him if it would be okay to name the dog Mac. He said, "I'd be honoured." But we never got a Westie, we got a Sheltie and named him Angus. When Mac came to visit, the Mrs. explained that she didn't think the name Mac would fit, so we named the dog Angus instead. She hoped he wasn't offended. His reply: "Angus is my middle name!"

Some friends of mine just named their first-born Riker—after the Enterprise’s First Officer in Star Trek Next Generation. …. My wife and I once had cats named Barlow, Marlowe and Marla—in part to bug our vet.

At one of the fly-in communities where we worked, adding "ina" to the father's name  to make the daughter's was a thing:  Jeff > Jeffrina, Roger > Rogerina, etc. 

Another one I have no explanation.... family name Crow [or possible Crowe.... both spellings were used by branches of the family].  Mom's given name Tilda ... daughter's given name, Kilda.

And there's the kid at our school named - no kidding - Snapper. Yes, his real name. (I recall referring to him as "Red" in a team meeting.) And he was a major problem, too. I wouldn't let him get away with anything (fortunately he wasn't in my class), so much so that he told another teacher he was going to slash my tires. The teacher had to inform him that I didn't have a car. (I didn't. We didn't even have drivers' licenses in Toronto - we lived two short blocks from the subway.) The teacher was afraid that he'd slash some other teacher's tires.

As far as I know, there is no baby.

I was just re-posting a joke.

However, I was HOPING that Han Solo would name his loudmouthed  daughter Amanda Lynn,  just in case the galaxy would need to hear Amanda Lynn Solo.

I once (tactfully) flagged up to friends that Holly as a suggested name for their as-yet unborn daughter might be a future leg-pull issue given that their surname is Wood. Amazingly they claimed not to have spotted that one.

My Aunt excelled in typing in high school. She had won some typing contests & when she graduated & used it is as one of her skills in her job search. She landed a job at one of our local prisons as a clerk. She moved her way up through the ranks to a comfortable retirement.

She said the strangest thing she came across working there was a guy named Doormat! Full name, all one word.

Is it any wonder he ended up in prison?

just before my daughter was born, we were trying to choose a middle name for both a boy and a girl. The deal was that if we had a girl she'd be called Esther - my choice and non negotiable (I hadn't really wanted kids so this was part of the deal). So my wife got to choose the middle name - after lots of umming and ahhing she announced it was Polly and then was really peeved by my hysterical laughter. Irrespective of which way round they went, what chance would a kid have at school with the names Polly and Esther?
