Sinutab?

Hahahahaha...

Nice.

I was always partial to Nosmo King... You know... After a No Smoking sign in the waiting room.

I intend on naming my kids Oxycontin and Percocet.
 
2012-10-20 08:46:07 AM  
This is why I have named all of my non-existent children after that Master Baby Namer, George Foreman, even the girls.
 
2012-10-20 08:56:39 AM  
The wife and I always joked about naming the kids after pairs of city names as seen on interstate road signs:

Custer Feldspar
Thurber Mingus.

We used to think we were being weird; now I'd say reasonable.
 
2012-10-20 09:04:53 AM  
Good. I hope they continue to have regrets.

I never got along with my father, but he kept me from being named "Huey," because it was the first object mom saw from the window when I was born on a USAF base overseas.

I was 8 or 9 when Huey Lewis and the News were a big deal. That would have been untold 'nad punches. No kid in my generation was named Huey. At least none at my schools.

Thanks Dad, for talking sense to her.

Nursing homes are going to be weird in a few decades.

"Can someone please change Dykkotah Jayde's sheets?"
"Wow, D'Yl*an's pants are nipple high today."
"You don't want to play Bingo with KatnissaBella - she cheats worse than Chl@mydeea"

In my daughter's kindergarten class, it's nothing but Olivias and Sophies as far as the eye can see. Oh, and plenty of Dylans.

I'm naming my baby Mitochondria.
 
2012-10-20 09:31:37 AM  
I named one of my daughters Emily... there are a ton of them out there. But I chose the female variation of my father's name. Boy does she act like it.

My other daughters name is Margaret, the regular old damn spelling. She goes by Maggie.

No one has trouble with their names.

\\screw them for thinking they are so damn clever.

I thought we had given my son a perfectly respectable, traditional name. And then my dad started singing "Old Mark Donald had a farm . . ." shiat.

Looking for an archive of the Miasnthropic Biatch's rant on "Bad Baby Names" but can't find one. Ah well. I guess we'll have to settle for the best of Harris County (Texas) arrest records...Complete with bonus links to all sorts of hilarious names.

This story is more interesting when you assume that your dad convinced her to name you dickfreckle instead

Brayden, Jayden, Kayden bullcrap.
When my daughter was born, I sent out an email to the family saying that we had named her Placenta Febreze.

/Joke, of course.

Isn't Sinutab a reference to an old Onion article? I thought it was clever, subby.

Currently trying to talk my daughter out of naming her daughter Saorise. I have 2 months left and I'm afraid I'm not going to be successful.

How would that be pronounced? Sow-ree-say? Sow-rise? Sow-ree-zee?

Agrees.


Mitt and Ann Romney, with their sons (left to right): Tagg, Tarp, Shoop, and Whoop.

The oddest thing about that family's names is that "Mitt" actually has a normal name. Yeah, "Willard" is a bit goofy, but you could go by "Will".
 
2012-10-20 11:46:09 AM  
Ashlynn for girl
Septimus or Agamemnon for boy.

No really.

From what I understand the pronunciation is 'Seer-sha', it's Irish, wish neither my family or baby daddy's family are.
 
2012-10-20 11:47:59 AM  
Dacron and Sinutab... Awesome! Made me laugh, which I needed and nearly snot coffee out of my nose, which I didn't need, so it worked out well.

Thanks, Subby...

My father-in-law is a physician at a medical school. The training hospital is the county hospital so he sees a lot of indigent patients. He has told stories of seeing patients that were named after the medications given to the mother pre/postpartum. Strange.
 
2012-10-20 11:48:17 AM

that would be Trip, Tagg, Mitt, Ttti_nNn, Glerp, and Cthuhlu?

They named them Charlie and Mary.

Doesn't your daughter know that Hawaiian names are what's hot right now?

Pua'a has such a nice ring to it.

Jackie and Johnny and Tommy and Bill. Danny, Larry, Johnny, and Phil. What happened? Todd. And Cody, and Dillon, and Cameron, and Tucker. Hi Tucker, i'm Todd. Hi Todd, i'm Tucker. fark Tucker, Tucker sucks. And fark Tuckers friend Kyle. Thats another soft name for a boy. Kyle. Soft names make soft people. I'll bet you ten times out of ten, Nicky, Vinnie, and Tony would beat the shiat out of Todd, Kyle, and Tucker
