C'mon parents....stopped with the EFFed up names..

Recommended Posts

What if you had a girl?

Carina...it means "pretty" in Italian. Always thought it would make a good name.

Similiar to my name. :):thumbup:

Slightly less ambitious, but yeah.

Easy there, ladies. Let's not have a catfight over Homer J's fictional children. No one wants to see you two pulling each others hair, scratching and biting each other, furiously tearing each other's clothes off...and...ummmm...I'm out.

:lmao::lmao:

This has actually already happened. :unsure:

:pillowfight:

Stop it!

I think if we sterilize people who give their kids odd names, a whole lot of minorities and Hollywood types will go under the knife though.

:goodposting:

When I was stuck in a hotel a couple months ago on a business trip, I caught a show on VH1 (I think) that was a countdown of the worst names of Hollywood babies. WOWZERS! There were some awful ones there...

Now, as for the worst I've ever heard of, my wife used to work for CPS for the state. They once had a case in which the family decided the hospital had done a good enough job picking their little girl's name so they stuck with it. Think of tamale then pronounce the word Female...

I like the names Payton and Spencer.  :thumbup:

"Piper" down?

;)

I'm REALLY trying to like Piper out of respect for Mrs. D.......but I'm losing the battle...... :D

:kicksrock:

Just recently I suggested names for a little boy and little girl (set of twins) that were used. Addison is the little girls name and Aiden is the little boys name. :thumbup:

I am officially taking away your naming privileges.....

(Yes, I know this will likely be a generalization...)

From what I've seen, this funky names thing is almost completely women-driven.

I just haven't been hearing of guys giving these hideous names to their children, just the women.

Is that what others are seeing as well?

Same thing can be said for the funky haircuts I see on some of these brats these days, too.

Surprised no one has piped up to tell the story about his brother who had two kids his class named Lemonjello and Oranjello.

Did know a few skankbags in high school that named their kids Kshe (after St Louis Rock Station) and Chevelle. :no:

This is from a book written by Dan Jenkins.

OJ/LJ are urban legends ... but there was actually a guy named KoolAid Williams at my high school. Never saw his birth certificate ... but it says "KoolAid" in the yearbook, and that's what everybody called him.

Pulled over a guy named Delicious Peters 15 years ago.

Someone actually named their boy DELICIOUS. If the surname was "Smith" it would still be ridiculous.

My wife today declared her desire to name our first born son "Porter"... I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I am pretty sure I hate it.

Great name for a chocolate lab though...

As someone whose wife just whipped out a pretty much made up name for our son, I have to say that I'm very interested to see what happens when these kids have kids and if they stick with the original stuff or go back to the tried and true.

Allowing your wife to give your kids made up names is the epitome of gheyness.

This is one of my pet peeves.

People are idiots, plain and simple. True story:

Someone asked my friend one time how did he spell his name because their son had the same name.

His reply was "Sean"

They they said, "Oh, that's interesting and haven't heard it spelled that way, our son's name is spelled SHAWN. Why did your parents spell your name that way?"

His reply "Because that's the correct way to spell it."

My friend is getting a PHD in classics and Sean was the original way (derived from Jean) to spell it.

Look, you want to spell your kid's name a different way to "be different" then knock yourself out but at LEAST learn the original way and don't come off looking like a complete moron and not even know how your kid's name was spelled.

Herbert, if you don't like it, maybe you should move to Mexico.

Mexico Just Says No to Funky Baby Names

Sunday, July 02, 2006

Oh baby! You can make it, carry it around for nine months and bring it onto the planet whenever, wherever and with whomever you’d like (theoretically, at least), but when it comes to naming it, one Mexican state says you’d better say adios to your favorite funky baby names.

Authorities in the state of Chihuahua are enforcing a new set of rules — extremely specific rules at that — on what the baby-makers can call their kiddos, KVIA reports.

It seems the state was displeased with a rash of tots running around with odd, creative and foreign names, so it decided to issue a reminder of what’s considered appropriate and what isn’t.

Among the names deemed “improper” by the state are Lluvia, which means rain, Azul, which means blue and Kevin, which means … well, who knows.

The rules dictate that if parents must name their child a foreign-sounding name, then it has to be followed by a Spanish middle name, like Maria.

And there’s more.

Parents who dare to be different by tricking up the spelling of a name better think twice — only “common spellings” are going to fly.

But bewildered baby-namers should know: the government insists it's not out to steal their moniker-making thunder, rather they’re just trying to prevent the kids from a lifetime of ridicule and legal troubles.

I looked but I couldn't find a thread I stared a while back asking for advice on how to get "naming rights" to my unborn son. My wife is one of those people who believes a name needs to be "unique" and different to make it special. Of course her name is Jane... so she absolutely hates any name that is plain or common.

I on the other hand agree with the rest of the FBGs here that these screwed up names are a curse for these kids later in life. How can you possibly be taken seriously if your name is Sklyer or Hunter or Dakota? Do you really want your daughter to have a name that is normally preceeded by the words "Now on Stage 5..."

In the end my rationality won out over my wife's insanity. Our son was born last week and his name is John Matthew. I had wanted John because it was my grandfather's name, and the wife finally agreed that Matthew wasn't a bad name, so we're calling him Matthew. I figure one day when he grows up and learns the significance of his first name he can maybe choose to use it.

I remember unwillingly watching an episode of Oprah (there's a name for ya there) with the wife one time and I can't remember what the topic of the show was but one of her guests was named: AQUANETTA!

AQUANETTA!

:shock::eek::X

:lmao::lmao::lmao:

AQUANETTA!

I wonder if she had a career in hairstyling.

Poor lady.

I knew a girl in HS whose first name was Michael. She went by her middle name but I asked her why was her first name a boy's name and she said that her parents gave her that name after her father because they didn't think they could have another child. Two things:

1. So what, is it really THAT important to name your child after yourself?

2. If so to #1 then why not at least make it her middle name?

I heard "Kayden" at the zoo the other day. 

wtf?  It was a guys name btw

I think the name you heard was Hayden.....that's one of the "now" names for boys. :X

that's our daughters name

Kayden or Hayden? :unsure:

I think Hayden as a first name came from the name after the mothers maiden name trend. Likewise Ryan, Brien, etc. A woman I know whose maiden name is Kirby actually called her daughter Kirby-Lynn. :X Took some time to get used to that one.

I also know of a woman with twins that named them after both grandfathers, William and Peter. She named the twins William Peter and Peter William. :loco:
