    I'm betting this kid has a bit of an ego. What the hell are these mothers thinking?

    Try calling a kid Phosphorus....no word of a lie....someone I know named their kid this.

    That kid will be scarred for life.

    Maybe the kid glows in the dark.

    Here's an invitation: post the weirdest names of kids you've actually covered. Can't make them up and you have to cite the team (high school or pro).

    My favorites, right up there with Yourhighness:

    God Shammgod, former Providence basketball player.
    Scientific Mapp, former FAMU basketball player (as God is my witness, it's true)
    Hiawatha Berry, former Georgia football player
    'OMar Ellison, former FSU wide receiver (that would be the spelling the parents and kid demanded -- apostrophe, followed by capital O and Capital M, then small a and small r).

    Friend of the family is a recently retired special ed teacher. She learned to carefully peruse her class list BEFORE school started when she had a kid named Shithead.
    It was pronounced SHA-THEED. ::)

    Pretty conventional in my career ... other than the 50 different spellings of Kayleigh. There was, however, a teacher back in Newfoundland. First name, Harold. Last name, Butt. And yes, everyone called him Harry.
  11. There once was a basketball player named Spotlight Walker.
