Weird Baby Names That Make 'North' and 'Bear' Sound Completely Normal

What could be weirder than Kim Kardashian's baby name choice? Only this

If your parents saddled you with a peculiar, complicated or weirdly spelled name, you probably dreaded that first day of school, and your new teacher's attempts to pronounce it.

And while celebrities have elevated the wacky baby name to an art form, making monikers like Apple and North see almost normal, we're still shocked by the seemingly endless list of strange first names that normal, everyday folks name their kids. Here are some of the strangest first names people have ever encountered firsthand, according to an AskReddit thread

1.) Exzachary

"Because he was exazachary what they wanted"

2.) November Rain

"Or Nova for short. Yes her parents were Guns 'N Roses fans"

3.) Somewhere out there is a grown woman with the middle name Butter

4.) Doy

"Not Doyle, not Roy. Doy."

5.) "Christmas-Snow"

First name only. 

6.) H.K. (but he goes by Bill.)

"My grandpa's legal first name is H.K., which is not short for anything. He goes by Bill. I have no idea why his name is H.K. and no idea why he goes by Bill.

7.) Storm

The name of one Redditor's former (probably terrifying) boss.

8.) Happy Happy

"Some guy used to go to my school was named Happy. His last name was also Happy. Full name: Happy Happy." 

The Duck Dynasty crew would be proud. 

9.) Ynnhoj

He was named after his father Johnny.

10.) Samwise

"My name is Samwise, I assume that counts."

Yes. Yes it does.

11.) Xavier-6 and Neptune Blue
