Top 5 Unusually-Named People

We all know that there are a lot of strange names out there. You yourself might know of some people with unusual or unique names that has made you curious as to what their parents were thinking when they came up with it. But here are some of the worst I could find; names so unique that nobody else in the world likely has them, and will certainly leave you wondering!

Beezow Doo-Doo ZopittyBop-Bop-Bop

Yes, that is this man's actual name. Born Jeffrey Drew Wilschke, Beezow Doo-Doo ZoppityBop-Bop-Bop changed his name to what sounds like an improv jazz number, as he feels it's "more fitting". He's known not only for his long and peculiar name but also for his string of crimes he's committed over the years. Mr. ZoppityBop-Bop-Bop has been charged with possession of marijuana and violation of bail conditions, along with other things. There are also compilations online of reporters hilariously trying and failing to pronounce the name.

Janice Lokelani Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele

This woman, with a 36-letter Hawaiian surname, first started gaining notice when she had a battle with the state over fitting her name on her driver's license and ID. Her maiden name is 'Worth', but she has opted to keep her current last name in honor of her late husband. If you want to hear how the name is pronounced, check out this local news clip of a reporter who happens to correctly pronounce it.


This name was invented by two Swedish parents for their son in 1996. It seems very obscure and difficult to pronounce, but in reality, it's actually pronounced simply as 'Albin'. This strange spelling and unfitting pronunciation was intentional, as it was used in protest of the harsh naming laws in Sweden. So far the request has been denied, as well as their next attempt to name the child 'A' (pronounced the same way)

Hubert Blaine Wolfe­schlegel­stein­hausen­berger­dorff, Sr.

This is the name given to a German typesetter from the early 1900's. This is one of the names given to him, but surprisingly, this is still only a shortened version of the full name, which is really over 600 characters long! The first name is 26 more common first names, with one starting with each letter of the alphabet, and the last name is a sort of archaic story about his ancestors and sheep herding (although the meaning is unclear and often debated). His son, Hubert Blaine Wolfe­schlegel­stein­hausen­berger­dorff, Jr., is said to have been able to pronounce his name since he was 3 years old. Many people think this might be a hoax, and there have been many different tellings of this story, but the full complete version of the name is as follows:

Adolph Blaine Charles David Earl Frederick Gerald Hubert Irvin John Kenneth Lloyd Martin Nero Oliver Paul Quincy Randolph Sherman Thomas Uncas Victor William Xerxes Yancy Zeus Wolfe­schlegel­stein­hausen­berger­dorff­welche­vor­altern­waren­gewissen­haft­schafers­wessen­schafe­waren­wohl­gepflege­und­sorg­faltig­keit­be­schutzen­vor­an­greifen­durch­ihr­raub­gierig­feinde­welche­vor­altern­zwolf­hundert­tausend­jah­res­voran­die­er­scheinen­von­der­erste­erde­mensch­der­raum­schiff­genacht­mit­tung­stein­und­sieben­iridium­elek­trisch­motors­ge­brauch­licht­als­sein­ur­sprung­von­kraft­ge­start­sein­lange­fahrt­hin­zwischen­stern­artig­raum­auf­der­suchen­nach­bar­schaft­der­stern­welche­ge­habt­be­wohn­bar­planeten­kreise­drehen­sich­und­wo­hin­der­neue­rasse­von­ver­stand­ig­mensch­lich­keit­konnte­fort­pflanzen­und­sicher­freuen­an­lebens­lang­lich­freude­und­ru­he­mit­nicht­ein­furcht­vor­an­greifen­vor­anderer­intelligent­ge­schopfs­von­hin­zwischen­stern­art­ig­raum, Senior

Celebrity baby names

This one isn't just one name, but rather a category of names. We all know that celebrities can be infamous for their unusual names for their children, one of the most noticeable examples being Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's child, North West. But here are some other examples that might shock you:

-Apple Martin (Pictured above); daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow

-Kal-El Coppola Cage; son of Nicholas Cage

-Sno FilmOn Dot Com Cozart; son of Chief Keef

-Bronx Mowgli Wentz; son of Pete Wentz

-Sage Moonblood Stallone; son of Sylvester Stallone

-Apollo Bowie Flynn; daughter of Gwen Stefani

These are the most prevalent examples I can find. If you think I left anything out, please leave your suggestion in the comments! I always love to hear what my readers have to think.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
