Middle name.  Change her middle name.  I'm not sure I understand the commotion.

There are worse names, and it's a MIDDLE NAME.

I can understand it causing some confusion

"What's your middle name?"

"Awesome"

"Very nice, but what's your middle name?"

"My middle name is Awesome"

"I'm sure it is, but I need to know for our records"

"Really, it's Awesome"

"OK, I've had enough of this.  I will now kill you".


So, yeah, I guess there could be a problem...

My son's middle name is Danger.  This is a true statement.  I lobbied for it before he was born and my wife was intent on a veto.  However, when he was born there were some serious medical issues and the situation was bleak for a couple of weeks.  When she filed for his birth certificate she didn't tell me she wrote in "Danger" as his middle name so I actually didn't know for a little while.  He came through his troubles and is a thriving 7 year old hockey player with the best middle name on the team.

When I was 4 1//2, my sister was born.  I wanted to name her 'Pancake' because I liked pancakes.

Her name is not Pancake.

Yeah, my wife said something to the effect of "when he does some dumbass stunt and breaks his leg, remember YOU wanted him to be able to say 'Danger is my middle name.'"

You really want to mess with someone, I met someone who's last name was "E".  That was it.  Just E. There is something about a single letter last name that drives computerized systems absolutely bonkers.
 
2014-06-10 06:15:51 PM
Judging from the photo, that's about all she'd have.

She wont have anything else??  Just a name, no possessions??

sounds fitting seeing as how her father's name is Missing.

Mom looks like she's 16 if that.
 
2014-06-10 06:17:30 PM
It's not like she's trying to name the kid Chandelier or Chlamydia. Awesome, especially buried in the middle, is a decent name. Especially compared to Contea.

For love's sake, people, don't give your daughter a name that sounds like C*nt.

Celebrities can name their kids all kinds of crazy, but we little people need a judges approval?

My mother's maternal uncle was named "Leslie (Less) Mohr".
 
2014-06-10 06:20:48 PM
My friend's kid's middle name is Chance.  First name, Jack.
Anythings better than "Contea," the kid FTFA's original middle name.

Sir, traditionally, mongrams are just your initials.

Max Power doesn't abbrieviate! In his name, each letter is as important as the one that preceded it. Maybe even *more* important... No, *as* important.

/And if there's any room left, add a bunch of exclamation points and a pirate flag!

Friends of mine gave their daughter Helena the middle name Earth. So when she has a tantrum they can call her "Helen Earth".

Heh. I went to college with a guy named Rusty Buick.

Subby is rather judgmental... what's wrong with the picture?  There's nothing to see here, other than a cool story and middle-name.

Or Propecia.  Don't name your daughter after an anti-impotence/male pattern baldness medication.  Seriously, people!

I used to work with a nurse who made a deal with her husband, that she could pick the first name and he could pick the middle name for their son.  He was a big x-men fan, so he picked Juggernaut.

So, it could be worse.

Or have no middle name, I had just a first and last name for years, then the Marines computerized their records and suddenly it was chaos in admin as the new system wouldn't accept that I had no middle initial and kept rejecting every entry because of it, the navy Lt there finally ordered me to chose a letter they could add in as my middle initial and all was well until my next security clearance audit when the NIS freaked because now my Mil records listed a middle initial but my birth certificate, SS card, drivers license etc didn't, long story short I ended up legally adopting the letter "D" as my middle name, shortly thereafter they upgraded the computers to accept unusual names, sigh

Yeah, one middle initial goes towards my family side and one towards the wife's side. For all practical applications we simplify to S.E.S.

We teased our families with Chappy for the first boy's name, Brock Leigh for the second. They were not amused.

When it came to middle names, I didn't much care as I don't even have one.

My friends name is Justin Case. My dad's business partner was Dick Harter.
 
2014-06-10 06:40:41 PM
When we chose our child's name, we had three goals: 1. The first name would be the name we would use to address her; 2. The name(s) would not be a pun involving my last name; 3. In combination with the middle name, we could shout all three names with a menacing tone, if necessary.
