Her Parents Called Her What?

We've all had moments, on hearing what could only kindly be called unusual names, where we've wondered about what a child's parents were thinking. Here's a name that makes other oddities pale in comparison: Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii. The New Zealand girl went before a judge, who granted her a name change. Some of the other odd children names from down under:
  • Number 16 Bus Shelter
  • Midnight Chardonnay
  • Violence
  • Benson and Hedges
  • Fish and Chips
Children in one family were all named after six-cylinder Ford cars.
