    My brother named his son John Mark, which isn't that weird, but the most Alabama name ever.

    Edit: I think it had to do with Gene Stallings son. He's a huge Bama fan. My family is weird - it's either Clemson, Bama or the one Auburn grad.

    “Grandpa Rollin, what’s your name mean?”

    Well kids, back when I was born we had to put liquid from the ground into our cars to make them go. Weird, right? Anyway, my dad was a complete asshat whose favorite activity (aside from hitting my mom) was pulling his big truck up near people he didn’t like the look of and making it spit out thick black smoke for no reason at all.

    John Mark is the full name of Mark the Evangelist. It’s about as traditional as you can get.

    Or Western Civilization as a whole...

    I get mocking the reasoning (even though John Mark Stallings was awesome), but that’s not at all a “weird” name in the spirit of the thread.

    I associate John Mark with John Mark Karr, the guy who falsely confessed to killing Jonbenet Ramsey. That’s a problem in itself, but it’s otherwise a traditional, biblical name.
