Make the funny lady stop

Looking to waste some time? Want to laugh until you cry?

Have a looksee at Baby's Named A Bad Bad Thing.

I think these people need to realise that since there are only 26 letters in the alphabet and 6 billion people on the planet, no matter how hard you try, finding a "unique" name for your child is pretty much a waste of time. Unless you WANT to saddle someone with Fijwytnogked. Which might actually be Finnish.

My favourite quote from this site:

I really like Freddy Prinze Jr. I heard his dad was really talented and died tragically. What was his name?

  1. I love that site. Some of those names truly qualify for child abuse.

  2. Last week my husband and I looked into the windows of his old grade school (I think you call it grammar school - it's where the little kids go) and on the board of the first-grade (six year olds') room was a large alphabet and the students' names - for example, under the letter P, there'd be Panda.

    We saw 'Troi' (like on 'Star Trek') and Kwentin. Plus the usual bevy of Briannas, Colins, etc.

    I was very happy to see someone still named their son John.

    I know... not that Lorem Ipsum is much better!

  3. Fijwytnogked would only be Finnish if it was spelled Fiijwytnoogked and then it would likely be shortened to Mikko.

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
