Okay, So I was reading the weekly arrest reports and most of the alleged perpetrators have had a lifetime of 'How do you spell that?'

It would be incredibly frustrating and demoralizing to have to go through this BS every day. Why would anyone do that to burden their own child?

Years ago a friend of mine had started giving out an alias of Sam because he thinks that people are too stupid to spell Gerald.
Figuring that the dumbest of the dumb can spell S-A-M, he says he has been proven wrong more than once.
Seemingly, 10% of the school aged kids names rhyme with Jayden.

I'm not trying to make humor from someones undeserved misery. Guess I'm just too old to keep up. Does anyone understand this line of thought?

I'm with you 100%.

True story: My dad took a spill one night and was taken to the emergency room. While there, I was chatting with a nurse who told me some of her stories of patient visits. Writing them down ruins the gales of laughter shared between us, but here are a few, nonetheless:

A very expectant woman was rushed into the delivery room where she promptly gave birth to a baby boy. She was overcome with joy, and the nurses had to spend a fair amount of time talking her out of the child's proposed name: Shi'thead (pronounced SHI-THEY-AD).

Another woman proposed naming her darling little one Fallopian. Duh.

And I'm sure everyone has heard of the twins Lemonjello and Oranjello? Mom just loved to eat lemon and orange Jell-o...




You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

My last name has 4 letters. You would be amazed at the variations of spelling I get.
And it seems that the first step into a jail cell begins with your stupid parents giving you an equally stupid name.

I can beat that.

My last name is Fox. Three letters. Eff Oh Ex.

"One X or two?"

Uh...My first name ain't Redd...

My granddaughters subscribe to the "isn't that cute" unique name bullshit. I have great granddaughters named "Aubrianna Shaylynn" "Shanteena" and "Brycinea".

Gah.




Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

My sister worked with someone named Listerene. I remember reading in the court reporter section of the newspaper once the name AntJuan, I had to think about it for a bit before I figured out to pronounce it Antoine. And I knew someone who talked a couple out of naming their new daughter Vagina. Even after explaining to them what the word meant they still thought it sounded pretty and, after all they already had a daughter named Fallopia. Roll Eyes

In my line of work I see a number of employee enrollment forms to their health plans.

Years ago I saw one that:

Last Name: Lear
Middle Name: Chande
First Name: Crystal

So they named their daughter Crystal Chande Lear

The Lexington newspaper used to run special needs adoption ads on Thursdays, complete with photos of the featured child. One week they ran a set of twins, Virginia and Vagina. I kid you not.

True story. Back in my Public Defender days I was assigned to an old time Florida Judge's division. This guy was right out of central casting for "country judge" (I was moved to that division because the last PD could not get along with him)

Any way, every arraignment and calendar call day he would break court and go into the jury room and hold a plea conference for all the attorneys (no way that would happen today). So this one day he is reading the docket and one of these names comes up and he stops, shakes his head and says (and I quote) "Why cant these people name their kids Billy or Sam?".

Enjoyed my year in that division, he and I got along great, we each respected the other with those areas we held dear.

I had one rule when deciding names for our children. You have to be able to find it on one of those little license plates at the souvenir shop.

In high school I knew a guy from Lebanon. When his family and him arrived, nobody could spell his name. His Dad opened the phone book and pointed at a name -- that was his last name. Dad then flipped to another page and pointed -- his first name. The poor guy had to have a notorized letter on him at all times. Seems that Dad had "given" his son the name John Doe.

Wasn't that Mitt Romney's Twitter "pseudonym?" In French: Pierre Delecto.

You can have all kind of bizarre letter-combo names and people think it's "cute". Name your daughter "Boadicea" and you'll be asked, "Where'd you get such a weird name?"

I would like to apologize to anyone I have *not* offended. Please be patient. I will get to you shortly.

Well, those who don't know their ancient British/Roman history would ask that, anyway. Wink

I just finished an online support chat with Jillie-Ann.

I suddenly want a salad with portions of meat, cheese, and veggies cut into short, thin strips.

It seems her parents couldn't agree on name. Jill? Too common. How about Julie? No, I don't think so. Maybe Julianne? No. Let's agree to disagree and name her Jillie-Ann.

I recall there was a hooker or stripper with a great name. We used to run her tag whenever we had a dispatcher trainee. We enjoyed hearing her read back the name: Magnolia Thunderpussy.
