Top 8 Names You Never Knew Existed

Last week I featured my Top 10 pick of footballer lookalikes. This time I will present a similar form of post, but different subject.

I hereby present to you..

My Top 8 Names You Never Knew Existed!

8. Thedoric



I would have accepted Cedric or Theodore. But Thedoric? According to him, he has only found one other guy who shared his name through google. Pretty rare, huh?

7. Fish Leong


A Malaysian-born singer called Fish. 'Nuff said.

6. Z-Chen Chang



Another Malaysian-born singer. His name sounds like the name you would have thought cool as a child. You know, it's those days when "Dragons", "Tigerz", "Shadow~", "Lord_0F_D@rknezz", etc seem very cool a name you would definitely use as your Friendster account ID. Interestingly, he has a cousin whose name is Fish.

5. Prince Michael Jackson II (a.k.a Blanket)



There's nothing wrong about naming your son Prince. But why Blanket?

4. Huzaishysy



Another friend of mine bore an unusual name. Ex-SOASCians will definitely know that this guy has bagged numerous awards. For every award he earned, the announcer would have difficulty pronouncing his name. Some pronounced Hu-zai-Shee-Shee, others Hu-zai-Shy-Shee. So listen up smartass, his name is pronounced "Hu-Zai-Sees". Huh? How is "Shysy" pronounced as "Sees"? Beats me.

3. Han Ran Jiao

I found this name in a video game I played. Han Ran Jiao.



Feeling curious, I talked to him.



Irreplaceable knife? Hmm..I wonder what that means.



Oh! You chicken out because you just "lost you irreplaceable knife"! I suggest you to change your name to Han Bai Chee, perhaps?


2. Max Hell



As the article (you gotta love the headline) suggested, the child called Max Hell was rejected from enrolling into church school just because of his surname. I don't see any harm in having a name as such. Apparently, the Hell family were of Austrian descendant, and Hell meant light in their mother tongue. Ironic, huh? Hell meant light.

1. !Xobile



Anyone who had loved Russell Peters would know this! I don't know if the name is made up to build his jokes or not. He claimed to have met this security guard and saw his nametag that reads !Xobile. When he tried to address him, well, now that's the thing. How do you say his name?? Unlike Huzaishysy, you have no idea how to start calling his name. Since it starts with an exclamation mark, must we go like...XO-bee-lay?? Now, how do you pronounce "!"?

Turns out, the proper way to pronounce it is (click)-bee-lay. Yes, you must do the clicking sound in his name. The nerve of some parents, naming their son like that.


What do you think? Found any names you found unusually rare? Share it with us ;)
