kimwim: Neighbor named her kids "Misty Dawn" and "Coral Reef". I thought those were bad enough.
JohnCarter: Wait...one of the Harry Potter kids is in the Navy now? And an officer no less??[msnbcmedia3.msn.com image 320x493]
willicus: When it came time to name our kid, Mrs. willicus and I had one rule: It must not look stupid on a resumé.
Earpj: Sometimes, movies ruin a family name.My Grandfather was named Forrest. Thanks to the movie, that name is not a viable name anymore, as everyone would think the boy was named for the movie and not the great man who took on 6 kids and raised them as his own.So, we went with his last name for a daughter, instead. Rose./The boy who would be Forrest, runs. He runs cross country, track and plays soccer.//We'd be yelling "Run, Forrest!"
willicus: /kid is now 6 days old//she's the most adorable baby on the planet
thornhill: Dear parents, your kids will hold it against you and/or go out of their way not to use the name.I have a name that while isn't as stupid as these, it's dumb enough and difficult enough for people to pronounce (despite being one syllable) that I go by my last name so much that people who don't know me well think it's my first. I would have greatly preferred a common name like Michael.
phaseolus: DrPainMD: I, Kaleb Joshua Holden Atticus Tyler Hudson Pain, and my wife, Brittany Ashley Zooey Dixie Ruby Flora Pain, agree.Wait a minute -- with "Zooey" in there, you must have married an 11 year old.
NeoBad: This might give way too much away for some folks.....but my Mom wanted to name me after my Dad's Brother who had just died a few years before and his widow, looking down at me in the crib, and I was born cross eyed and had not had the repair yet, told my Mom, You are not going to name that "xxeadase" baby after him, the doctor...so my Mom, not wanting to cause too much family strife, named me after one of her favorite uncles.Aunt XXX and I had a great laugh about this when I got out of Medical School, the pie squarely on her face....
