Given that the mom's name seems to be "busy", I have to give them a pass on this one.

They'd better be careful or Birdie might eat Cricket.

This.  Cricket is nowhere near as bad a name as Busy.

Even going with the middle name would be acceptable. So this doesn't rate up there with Moonunit.

Nothing wrong with a name like Cricket.

Crikey!

Cricket and Pearl are very common women's names in the alst 100 years. Is the submitter not from an Aanglophone country? It's possible that subby's family is not from an english-speaking country originally, so he/she doesn't know about what Anglophone women were named 50 or 60 years ago.

I've heard the name "Cricket" before.  And Pearl is a real name.  I don't see the problem.  Although, Busy Philips sounds like a whore's name.

/In before someone posts, "I'd get busy on her phillips, if you know what I mean.  And I think you do."

Only women I've ever known named Cricket was a pathetic, dried-up old skank who hung around teh community theater because she had nothing else going on in her life.

It's also a cut-rate mobile phone carrier known in this town for abhorrent service.


Great choice!

Yeah, but FZ pointed out--and I don't have the exact quotation memorized, but it was something to the effect that it wouldn't be their first names that caused trouble for his kids, but the last name.

This Pearl was the voice of Betty Rubble.

We know this Pearls' father is Eugene Krabs, but we know little about her mother...

I'm sure Rwanda and Singapore are very proud of their naming habits.

Is it sad that I scrolled down...saw the pic....mouthed the words "Penis goes WHERE???" just before I scrolled to the bottom of your post?

Why no, it isn't.

Point of order.  Her first name is Moon.  Unit is her middle name (Frank's reason for this is that she was the first-born).  Her friends and family all call her Moon (and she was billed as such when she appeared in European Vacation).  It's mainly the press who insist on using her first and middle names together as if they were hyphenated.

/Fun fact: if she'd been born a boy, he would have named her Motorhead, after his pal Motorhead Sherwood

baby names should not be chosen for the purposes of attracting publicity.
 
2013-07-11 12:03:59 PM
Fark it man, I'm gonna go ahead and name my kid "Painful Rectal Itch."

That's because their babies are usually only PR props.

Hell, HAVING babies shouldn't be done for publicity. I'm sure there's more than one celebrity who, despite initially wanting an abortion, decided to have the kid and then let nannies raise it for her after the initial hoopla died down.

"It's weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names. Guys, my kids will be [in] therapy for LOTS reasons, I'm sure," she said.

Like having a lunatic for a mom.
 
2013-07-11 12:13:02 PM
I think Cricket is cute, but Cricket Pearl doesn't sing. Most of the time people in her everyday life are just going to be using her first name so I don't see any problem.
 
2013-07-11 12:25:54 PM
Cricket's not terrible.  I mean, the general rule is don't name your kids after things that are words in your native language, but that at least seems like one that wouldn't fall into confusing context too often.

It contracts to "Ricky" as well, which is a pretty standard nickname if the kid doesn't like the long one.
 
2013-07-11 12:27:20 PM
I think Cricket is cute. She'll probably use "Pearl" professionally when she's older, or just go by "Ket."
 
2013-07-11 12:28:39 PM
I think Cricket's a kinda cute name.
 
2013-07-11 12:33:23 PM
I've known ladies of both names.  Doesn't seem even worth mentioning to me.

I know a Cricket and a Pearl, I never really thought twice about those names.
/Also had great uncles named Amren, Berwyn and Renfrew with a great aunt Iona, Welsh names are weird.

What country specifically? According to Babynamewizard.com, Cricket has never cracked the top 1,000 baby names in the U.S. Pearl is making a comeback after dropping out in the 1980's.

Depending on the celebrity, it's hard to judge whether their kids' weird names were a dumb idea or a smart move. I mean really, what's going to get you teased more? Being named Kal-El or Nicholas Cage, Jr?

/"Aw c'mon, Nicky! Make the face and say 'Put the bunny down!' and we'll quit givin' ya indian burns!"
