Unique names encountered by a niece in Texas 

I have a wonderful niece that teaches school in Texas.  She shared the following email with me in January of 2022.

Uncle Michael,  I remember from my many visits to your home that you are a collector of unique names. My all-time favorite that you shared was Rainbow Trout Fisher.  That was many many years ago but I still get a kick out of it.  I have encountered many unique names in my teaching career here in Texas, and as time goes on, the names have gotten much more ‘special’.  Names like ‘Rocket’ and ‘Uriel’ that once seemed a bit out of the box, don’t phase me one bit now.  My mom told me that I need to share a few of my top favorites with you so here you go:
  • Ireoula
  • Divine Favor
  • Mamood
  • Ochena
  • Oluwasemilore Tiffany  (the family calls her ‘Semilore’, which is pronounced ‘shay-mee-lew-ray’)
  • Temiloluwa  (the younger sister of Oluwasemilore)
  • Utibeabasi
  • Anahi
  • Itzel
  • Savina
  • Ewatomi
  • Kamariyah
  • Jood
  • Adonis
  • Wairama Ruth
  • Gavrill
