Camden and Kaufman could be ok touch weird but not naming your kid Toyota level.

Fenway and Wrigley would be about the decision making ability I would expect of either franchise's fans.

I guess this is an old book because "Shea" is still on there.  Maybe you should consider renaming your child "Citi"?

You could call the kid Ewing. Since the full name of the park is Ewing M Kauffman stadium

My cat's name is Wrigley. Not sure about naming a human that.

Yes, subby, Wrigley is an MLB ballpark  Great?  Not so much, unless you like pillars, badly oriented seats and 1912 plumbing.

My wife accuses me of causing our kid to be Minute Maid.

It's funny, because that's not the kid's name.

I'm going to name my kid Qualcomm.

Peyton didn't actually win the Heisman (even though he should have).  Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Little 5/3 Pooper has never complained about her name.

I'm going to change my last name to Madison and name my poor little farker "Madhouse On." Just seems to have a little more personality than "United Center."

We're getting dangerously close to someone actually being named, "Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho "

I have a nephew named Camden. Has nothing to do with Camden Yards, though. It's in the baby book of names

Might I suggest not buying the worst seats in the house?  There is a reason you got them so cheap.  SMART people dont buy them.

I have a cousin named Wrigley, so I'm getting a kick out of this thread...

Not as bad as the idiots who named their kid Espn (pronounced Ehspin).

At least they're not naming their kids Petco (yet).

Umm, subby, you do realize that most of these were names before they were ballparks correct?

Camden Yards was named after Camden Station (aka the warehouse) which was named after Camden Street which was named after a Street in Ireland which was named after an old Irish family.
Wrigley Field was named after William Wrigley Jr.
The full name of Kauffman stadium is Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium.

I know in some countries, giving your child a proper name that's the same as the surname is normal.  It's far less common in the U.S.

You mean I might regret naming little Tyler, Skyler, Myler, and Byler?

Wrigley's a great name for a baby; just not so hot for a toddler or older.

It's not too uncommon in the US.  In an office I use to work in we had Cairo, Mercedes, Paris, and Alexandria.
