You Named Me What?

Apple, Tallulah, Fifi Trixibell - yes, we're looking at you Bob Geldolf. Feed the world and call your child Fifi. Tsk. Believe it or not, celebrities don't have the exclusive on ... well, interesting names for their progeny.
Want to out-do them? You probably don't need it, but here's some help:
The worst baby name book ever / David Narter

What not to name your baby / by Joe Borgenicht

Bertha Venation : and hundreds of other funny names of real people / Larry Ashmead

Here are some actual names found on Reference USA by our crack name-research guy:
Eileen Dover
Soda Popp
Paige Turner
Mike Easter
Calvin Hobbes
Crystal Ball.
Some of these need to be said aloud to get the full effect. Then you can say, as I did, oh, right.
