At least that satisfies the gender identification criterion. Was this child by any chance German?

How would you like to be called after a fungal infection?

A work example: I had a co-worker who "named" their son "7". Not the word seven spelled out, just the numeral. Eventually, he actually worked at our company.
Since we just spent some time in China, we ran across a whole group of people who have chosen English words as their first names - many of which aren't names at all. They typically pick them based on how they like the sound, without regard for their meaning. Some examples:
Big (man)
Mirror (woman)
Aroma (woman)
Sir (man)
Apple (woman)
Baron (man)
Mini (woman)
Rainbow (woman)
Fielding (man)
Feel (unknown - just from our office phone list)

Forgot the best one. An English teacher (friend of ours) in Beijing had a student who had taken "Hot Sauce" for her English name. Don't know if she was doing this as a come-on, or if she just liked it.
Several of our friends who are teaching English in China now have laid down rules for students in their classes who are adopting English names for the first time.

I knew a cat named Jello. Maybe it's full name was Orange Jello. It was a red/orange tabby.
