And if you're planning an abortion it reads, "VOID"

Had I let it chose, my fetus would've named itself "cheese sandwich!!" or "bagpipes!". Never understood the bag pipe thing.

but will it use soundex to generate names that sound the same as traditional names, but are spelled slightly differently, so my child will 'stand out', and be forced to correct everyone's spelling their whole lives?

/Mikel, Dayved, Marq
/Emmelly, Sarrah, Jeniver
/don't plan on having more than 3 kids either way.

Our unborn child chose his name this way. Unfortunately, he did nit make it to term.

Young "Mommy-why-is-there-a-wire-coat-hanger-coming-towards-me" will be sorely missed.
