Have a Peyton (girl) in family. Thought it was bad until they named her sister "McKinley"

Was hoping they'd just name all their kids after presidents. "Harding, get your ### in here!" "Polk, if I gotta tell you ONE MORE TIME!"

There's nothing wrong with a president's name for a first name.

These threads always remind me of the black chick at the relish tray during office Christmas Party. When someone asked who brought the "Crudite"....

"Crudite!? Thassa purty name!"

Her daughter Crudite should be around 7 years old by now. :lmao:

Rotunda

This was a popular name for children right after JFK died and they showed his funeral on TV.

Sadly, I wish I was kidding about this.

Oh, bullsh##.

I wish I was.

Go look it up. Rotunda was not among the top 1000 most popular baby girls or boys names at any point in the last 55 years.

It was pretty popular in the Dallas area, promise.

Again, I have no reason to make it up.

I can vouch for this. I live in Dallas and I have, like, 30 friends named Rotunda.

That IS funny.

:clap:

"Lincoln, you put that candle out and go to bed right now!"

"Van Buren! Take off your sister's ballerina outfit or you're gonna get a time out!"

Shouldn't that 2nd one be "Hoover! Take off your sister's...." as in J. Edgar (I know not a president, but close enough)?

They were interviewing some little league kids on the news last night.

One kid's name was 'Payden'.

:mellow:

If his middle name is not "Full" his parents missed their chance at breeding a porn star.

There was a set of twins around here several years ago named Orangello (Or-ron'-gel-low) and Lemonjello (Le'-mon-gel-low). Story was mom didn't have names yet and for lunch at the hospital she had a choice of orange jello or lemon jello. Well, I guess she chose both! I can't vouch for the authenticity of the story of the origin for the names, but it seems like some f'd up thing somebody would do. The two brothers were pretty good athletes.

We're thinking of going with Shaw Monroe for a boy. Family name. Will he kill us?

He probably wont kill you......but he'll wait until you are old and feeble and pretty much #### with you on a daily basis.

I've heard this one enough to believe it's an urban legend. Similar to the story where an uneducated woman named her child "Fe-mal-e" as that's what was written on the little band around her baby's wrist.

No, not really. Kind of a mish-mash of names I kind of like or names of kids I know. There's also another name in there ...

I like all three girls names and Nolan and Colin are okay. Actually, I really like Riley for a girl. I like unisex names for girls, for some reason.

Tell me about it.

1. Where does that name come from?

2. How do you pronounce it? More-Isle? Moral? More-Eel?

1. Nobody knows. My parents claim it's French, but none of my French teachers had ever heard of it.

2. Moral.

I'm french so maybe I can clear things up. Tremblay is the most common family name in Quebec. Maurile does sound french but the french name is Maurice, not Maurile. So it' s part french I guess.

And in french it's pronounced "Maurill".

Grandparents' names are sweet!

Mine (as spelled on BC):

Needless to say, none of my children will have "family" names from that era.

If I'd had a son, I was going to make a big push for Elroy. My wife and I both had a grandfather named that...also the name of George Jetson's boy.

My Girlfriends sister and husband are trying to have kids right now. They said if it is a male they want to name him 'Akmud' (not sure if I am getting the spelling correc there but think Muslim/Arab name and that is it) The thing that makes it funny is that the sister is 100% Phillipina and the husband is white guy mix. Both are Catholic.

One of the brothers remarked 'Oh, so when you have kids and I have kids.... my kids are going to beat up your kids is what you are telling me.'

Her defense is that they think it is a 'strong' name. :rolleyes:

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

Similiar to my name. :):thumbup:

Slightly less ambitious, but yeah.

My middle name is Giusseppe and I dated a girl named Carina before I met my wife.

Not to make an unkind remark but you do realize that names the end in "son" mean "son of" right?

Of course.
