Do you have an unusual name?
Are you ashamed of it? Do you get teased about it?
Or are you proud to have an out-of-the-ordinary name?
What's the most bizarre name you've come across?

I like my name a bit but it really annoys me when people call me posh just because my name is Victoria.
Vicky, 11, England
My second middle name is Mayall, which is pronounced; male. Some of my friends laugh at it, so I only use my first one!
Peter, 13, Cambridge
My name is Katyre, and I haven't met anyone else with the same name! I think it is a Latvian version of Kate! I think it's really cool.
Katyre, 14, Cardiff
Loads of people I know can only just spell my name! Which is irritating when you say "my name is Yvette" and they spell it E-vet! I kind of like my name! It's different and it's French!!!
Yvette, 12, West Midlands
My sisters are called Normandia and Fairy!
Natalie, 14, Manchester
I don't think my name is that unusual, it's Irish for fair shoulder and that's a sign of beauty - go mum for naming me that!!!!! My twin's name is Niamh, pronounced neeve and it means saint in Irish, she was misnamed!! Only joking
Nuala, 14, Northern Ireland

I have quite an unusual name, it's Xenia and my middle name is Fleur, but that one isn't so strange. I have only ever seen one girl with my name Xenia and that was on a NR story.
Xenia, 11, Milton Keynes
I think my name is a bit unusual. It's never pronounced properly. It's supposed to be My-All-E but I get everything from May-Lee to Melly. I love it though, I would never change it.
Maeli, 15, Manchester
I love unusual names sooo much. I'd love to have been given one. If I have two girls as children when I grow up, I fully intend on calling them Liberty and Sahara. I don't like to blend in and love names that are original like me. Shame about my name though (no offence to other Claires!)
Claire, 14, Cheshire
My name means luminous in Arabic. I'm actually really proud of it!

My name isn't really weird but lots of people don't get it right. It is Sian but when I got to the hospital or we have a new teacher, they sometimes call me Si-anne or Sean - I'm like, no it's SIAN. Sian is welsh for Jane.
Sian, 13, Northern Ireland
Everyone I know thinks Wolf is a cool name. Outta-dis-world names rock!

My name is of Russian origin, but even there that name is rare!

I'm Imogen and my sister is called India, I suppose hers is a bit more unusual. I think different names are cool, they make you individual. My friend is called Sarah and there are loads of Sarah's at my school, so she gets really annoyed when someone calls her, but are really talking to someone else! :(
Imogen, 15, Nottingham
Mine is a strange name as no one in my school has got the same name. Taymar is a river so it's quite a cool name. I do not like the name that much though as it has the word mar in and makes me sound old. I am called Tay which sounds much better.
Taymar, 13, Portsmouth
Almost ALL the time when someone asks me my name they can't pronounce it properly, I can't shorten my name so my friends have to call me by my full name. My name is has quite a nice meaning, it either means silk or happiness and joy. Everybody, even some of the teachers know I'm from different country from my name. I'm not a ashamed of it but sometimes people have a laugh at it which is quite irritating. But Rudaina is a very rare name, I sometimes think I'm the only Rudaina in the country.
Rudaina, 13, Glasgow
I suppose that Taryn is a bit unusual, and one of my middle names (Devon) is uncommon as well, but my other middle name is Elizabeth and that's normal.
Taryn, 15, Oxford
My name is Orla. It's gaelic for Golden Lady. Majorly embarrassing, I know!!!
Orla, 10, London
No-one can seem to pronounce my name which is a bit annoying, so I'm just Fi to everyone, much easier!
Ffion, 15, Norwich
A boy in my class is called Boniface Dumasami, but we just call him Boni.
