    Crazy Baby Names

    I was taking a walk last night in my neigborhood and came across a house that had a big stork announcing the birth of a new baby. The name of the baby?......
    RACE ROCKET. They also had their other childrens names on the announcement, ZUZU & BRINGLE I only thought celebrities gave their babies strange names. Why do parents give their children such awful
    names?

    Hopefully these are nicknames and the parents are just being cautious and not posting their children's names for all to see outside their house.

    I don't know why people saddle their children with weird names. I once had a white male pastor whose first name was 'Kim'.

    Top This!

    A friend of mine knew someone who worked as a nurse in the maternity ward of a hospital. She took care of a baby named "Master of the Universe."


    I went to high school with a girl named Snow White, and also a boy named Brock Lee. For real!

    I once knew a Hedda Butt. And long before there was such a thing, there was an 80-something year old lady I knew named "Minnie Van."

    These names aren't particularly weird, for instance like the family in New Jersey (I think) that has 3 daughters named Mercedes, Lexus & Porsche, but if you ever feel like getting "The Hairy Eyeball" from a policeman, just get pulled over with 2 guys named Jim Blaha & Jeff Blough (pronounced "Blow").

    Yeah, but Rumer Willis was actually named after somebody. Rumer Godden? Is that right? Isn't she a writer or something? Zuzu and Bringle sound like dog names to me. I can make no sense of Race Rocket. My kids have perfectly respectable, normal names. So what do I call them? Poodge, Boofuss, and Pieface, of course. It's a mother's prerogative.

    I am thinking Zuzu is from "It's a Wonderful Life;" remember "Zuzu's petals!"? So at least I can see that. But there are at least a dozen children named Timberland out there, and I know someone that named their child, "SheBop." When picking names for my children, I tried to pick something that wouldn't them kicked out of the job market later in life. I guess I'm just thinking about sending out resumes here...............if I was looking at resumes I would be inclined to take a "Leah" more seriously than a "Bambi."

    I think that is a good point. A name can sometimes "shape" the way a person grows up. From how others perceive them to how they perceive themselves. I have known 2 Bambis and they were both very similar - flaky and judgmental. Possible due to persons through out there lives thinking of them as being that way and being defensive about it.

    I still think Flavella is one of the worst I have personally come in contact with. Some names "fell out of favor" for a reason, and sometimes very good reason.

    I made a mistake of the name of the third child (it was dark outside so I couldn't see the name too good. It was down in the ground on a low sign). Took a walk yesterday (in the day) and saw that the third child's name is Birgin, and we all know what that rhymes with.

    I think all three of their daughters names are odd. Talula and Scout? Not my taste. Some of the names stars have been picking are just plain out there.

    There's people in my community named Donald Duck, William Williams and Harry Dick. I'm thankful for my given names that is for certain!

    I knew of a Scout and an Echo that went to my school, but it was them who changed their own names, lol. I also know a girl whose real name is, Mystery. I like it.

    This reminds me of a funny story of my Italian grandmother. When her grandchildren became adults and started to marry and have children she would say to the expectant parents "please name the baby a name that I can pronounce". She was certain that with her heavy accent and a unpronounceable name for the baby it would mean certain doom for her and the child.

    I used to work with a guy called Kim who was from New Zealand. It is totally acceptable as a male name in the UK and obviously in the antipodes as well. Lots of names have swopped genders at different periods of time and also switched from first names to surnames and vice versa. LOTS of US first names seem weird in the UK because they're surnames here. The most bizarre to me are all those clan names, Mac-something, being used as first names. MacKenzie? That's a hairy old Scottish bloke in my mind. Not a teenage girl. An example of a gender switching name is Ashley, which is pretty uni-sex in the UK but probably more common in males (There is an Ashley Cole in the England football team for example). But in the US it's exclusively female.
