not even very close,,,, Beaumont is home to a lot of " original names" especially in certain parts of town.... far as I know they did move from somewhere to Beaumont back in the early to mid 90's,,they were teenagers then,,, but I see in this thread we were not the only place were some parents hated their children

That is wild, because I was going to use that as my unique name example. When we lived in Alabama in 1993 we knew a lady who named her kids that, after her two favorite Jello flavors.

Yep. I know an attorney in New Orleans that had to take a deposition from a kid named ****head. At Charity Hospital in New Orleans, some of the new mothers would let the interns name their kids. Someone compiled a list, and there were more than a few named Gonorrhea (pronounced ga-noria) and Syphilis (pronounced si-fylus). Other names included Aneurysm, Infarction, Cystitis, etc.
