My DH is out of town for work, so I came back to my hometown to stay with my parents and have help with the kiddos. This is why I couldn't stand to live another minute in this place. Three people that work at the bank my mom does either had a baby or a grandchild this past week...

And saving the best for last...
Rystehnn Jozeebellah. No one knows how they are pronouncing the name, the baby was born very early and taken to a larger city NiCU, so the dad just emailed the name to a co-worker.

WOW...................
Maybe with the 3rd one the dad misspelled it????

I knew a girl named Ashly - her dad forgot the "e" on the birth cert so they just kept the weird spelling.

I can't even see the semblance of a name in the third, let alone see it as a mispelling. What name do you think they were going for? Anyone have any ideas on how they are pronouncing it?

My guess is rye-sten joe-zee-bella.

Hmm, that is one pronunciation I hadn't thought of.
At first, my guess was rest-en, my mom's was ra (like ra ra ra, sis boom bah) stawn (rhymes with dawn).

The mispelling comment got my thinking maybe the first letter accidentally got dropped, but what letter could it be? Perhaps a T and this is a creative way to spell Tristan? Maybe a C or K and this is somehow supposed to be Kristen or Christine?
Now, I'm leaning towards "Risten". Tristan is a trendy unisex name and I bet they were thinking, how could me make this more unique? I know let's drop the T and change the spelling to something more feminine.

I was thinking the middle name would just be Jezabel with the added Ella ending, but you might be onto something with this Joe. She is probably named after some family member Joe. Or maybe they could not chose between Josie or Bella so they smashed them both into a name and switched the spelling up to be unique?

I was just thinking how interesting it would be if after all that work to come up with something they considered interesting and unique, the girl chooses to go by Bella (pulled from her mn).

I was gonna agree with Elle's pronunciation....

and then I have to LOL a lot over the girl choosing to go by the nn Bella! hahahaha
(That's the fear I have if DH somehow agrees to Annabelle - that she'll want to go by Bella!)
