Monkeyfark Ridiculous: Naming girls Madison was the turning point. I blame Daryl Hannah.We're getting closer now to full circle, back to "naming" children by grunting out a set of quasi-random syllables which the parents are unable to put into intelligible writing.Someday we'll come back around to a limited set of socially-acceptable traditional names - but they'll be names like MackEnzzee-Boo and Brahvalisho, and naming a kid Madison will seem hopelessly pretentious.Yours in Preferred Nomenclature,Monkeyfark Crimefighter Ridiculous
AcademGreen: JonnyBGoode: Charlemagne?For a girl?It's pronounced Sher-ly-may-jean
Devil's Playground: Sometimes, while watching football, I like to see which names would win at scrabble.
ChubbyTiger: AcademGreen: JonnyBGoode: Charlemagne?For a girl?It's pronounced Sher-ly-may-jeanWould that make it better or worse?

meat0918: When did Dayna become common?
Big_Doofus: jenlen: [o.onionstatic.com image 850x714]I'll be waiting for the condemnation from the various farkers who will get their feelings hurt over this....
rbuzby: Hyjamon:/one daughter on the way...we flirted with Rebel as a first name, but are going with ReaganSilly name for a girl. Not much better than those black people you mentioned. Your probably kidding though.
Tobin_Lam: ChubbyTiger: AcademGreen: JonnyBGoode: Charlemagne?For a girl?It's pronounced Sher-ly-may-jeanWould that make it better or worse?Charlemagne is considered the first emperor in western Europe since the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. So naming a girl after him is pretty dumb, especially since the parents probably didn't even have a clue who Charlemagne was.
Heamer: I used to teach a kid named Dagur (Icelandic family) and another one named Talon (asshat family). With all these sharp, pointy names, it's amazing nobody got hurt.
Doc Batarang: Someone add Vice Rocksword to the list of manliest names.
TuteTibiImperes: flucto: LOL @ VanellopeThat was one of the more normal sounding ones on the list.Who are the brony couples naming their kids Rarity? ...
dr_blasto: Dancin_In_Anson: dr_blasto: it's still out there.My google and yahoo-fu are weak...weak I tell you. Found a lot of links but all were dead.archive.org has it.http://web.archive.org/web/20011029082703/http://www.misanthropic-bia t ch.com/briandrye.htmlfilters will probably break the link. How so will be obvious.
Loucifer: My son, Akfortyseven, is getting quite a kick...
Duane Dibbley: My next goal is to get people to give their children Puritan names. Just ask little Fall-not-into-daemonic-temptation-lest-the-Devil-take-your-soul-into-e verlasting-fire Dibbley.
Hyjamon: had a friend name their daughter "Leila"...in only a weeks time they changed it to "Layla" since everyone was mispronouncing "Leila" as "Lee-La"
Hyjamon: Duane Dibbley: My next goal is to get people to give their children Puritan names. Just ask little Fall-not-into-daemonic-temptation-lest-the-Devil-take-your-soul-into-e verlasting-fire Dibbley.you mean the quiverfull-like families where the kids are jacob, joseph, john, paul, jebidiah, Judas, Levi, Bartholemew, James...
TuteTibiImperes: flucto:I'm not sure WTF is up with the Subarus...
Danger Avoid Death: markie_farkie: Jadeveon ClowneyI see your Jadeveon Clowney and raise you a Barkevious Mingo./subby
Aarontology: TuteTibiImperes: flucto: LOL @ VanellopeThat was one of the more normal sounding ones on the list.Who are the brony couples naming their kids Rarity? Also, Kyndle, really? Some kids are being set up for a life of crime (Tuf, Vice) or a life on the pole (Envie, Kinzington).I'm not sure WTF is up with the Subarus, and how do you pronounce Jceion?I'd guess "Jason"
Hyjamon: as someone who recently sat thru a graduation ceremony of 2000 kids, this trend has been out of hand for a while (seeing how the graduates are all 20+). The readers had no trouble with foreign names (one reader teaches Chinese and the other is English as a second language teacher)...the ones they struggled with pronouncing the most and had to ask the person how to pronounce it were the names of African-American students. I can only imagine how ridiculous it will be in another decade or two.They don't display the names, so I can only guess how some were spelled...one that I remember was Unique Rose middle-name last-name, and since the speaker struggled with "Unique" I can only imagine how it was spelled.
Dancin_In_Anson: I would figure that I could find an archived copy of the Misanthropic Biatch's rant on bad baby names, but it would seem that in this case, the internet has forgotten.
Charmin Mao Tse-Bung: I can't wait for this stupid "unique/clever" naming trend to finally be over./my twins, Holley and Edelbrock agree with me//in the future, strippers will have stage names like Angela and Lisa///baby Stromburg is due next month
stuffy: I had no problem with my son Glock but the twins Sturm&Ruger ran up against some kook administrator.
