My sister is a long time elementary school teacher. She asked her Facebook group of teachers about the most unique student names they’ve encountered throughout the year. Here are the results:

  • BamBam
  • Beauty Im’Unique
  • Tequila
  • Rebel
  • Messiah
  • Abcde (pronounced AB-si-dee)*
  • Sir Highness
  • Christ (female)
  • Elvis (female)
  • Graiggeree (pr. Gregory)
  • Sexangry
  • Taco Champagne
  • Jack Daniels
  • Empressfatima
  • Da’Money
  • Anonymous Unique
  • Alizé (like the liquor)
  • Legion
  • Zeppelin
  • Quaintlyn and Quamryn (pr. Caitlyn and Cameron), twins
  • Green
  • Vanity
  • Treasure
  • Cinderella Piper
  • London England
  • Degree
  • Edge (short for Edgerton)
  • Tesla
  • Casanova
  • God Osiris
  • Sagan
  • Cashmere
  • Beautiful
  • Denim Gene
  • Shiney Jewels
  • Crease
  • Disney
  • Mhylz (pr. Miles)
  • Chancellor
  • Valor
  • Adorabella
  • T-Rex

*There are many urban name myths floating around, and Abcde seems to be one of them. Several of the teachers posted that they knew someone or “my friend had…” the infamous twins “Lemonjello and Orangejello” in their classroom. But our research shows no evidence that these twins actually exist. Anywhere. Other name myths that may exist somewhere but no, you don’t know a person who knows them: La-a (la-dasha) and Shithead (pronounced sha-teed).
