Um, actually most drama's don't really have much of a weird title, its just that its weird to us because we don't understand Japanese...

It's cute to have nicknames like pokpok and boknat.
i dont think they're actually weird considering most of my cousins
in the philippines have weirder names!

and what drama exactly has weird names?

maybe in their native language the title sound good but then when they translate it sounds different and sumtimes it might have sumthin to do with the whole drama and/or plot

Usually, there's a lot of meaning lost in translation, due to cultural differences.

Can you give example for weird names as you assume?
They use weird names to form uniqueness.
They use it to make us " Im going to watch it "
They use it to make us think.
