    Though some cultures' naming conventions can get pretty weird. Corsican people, a bit like the Romans actually, didn't really use first names that much because the ones they had were extremely generic and basically repeated every couple generations, so this led to a lot of people... Not really bothering. So you ended up with people called First, Second, Third etc.
    (while those fell out of fashion, this general attitude persists to a certain extent today - it's really common for high school students to call each other by their surnames because of this, for example.)

    Gay Horney. Yes, she’s a real person, as evidenced by the fact that she has a page under her name. Apparently she’s a real estate agent.

    This isn't an actual person's name but I was rereading Weepingcock archives and found a Hunger Games parody where the news presenter was named Brutus Sparkleman. Which isn't actually too different from the names Hunger Games characters have, but much funnier.

  15. The first name “Aerial.” Ariel (and some variations) is a name. Aerial, meaning in the air, is not.

    Just saw a post shared on the Facebook group "casually mentions they're better than you" where someone was bragging about how their kid listens to Rage Against the Machine. "Other kids his age may love Baby Shark," they say proudly, "but not Sinatra!"

    Sinatra.
