BAD BABY NAMES 14
Tonight, on PBS...
Just a thought, but isn't naming a child after a terrorist-harboring nation a bit of a no-no in today's political climate? Will baby #2 be named Libby'yah?
I think I took this once for constapation. I think I need to take it again after seeing it used as a baby name.
Let's hope he at least gets the LUCK of the Irish....
Speak softly, and carry a BAD BABY NAME!
MOUTHFUL, CRE8VE SPELLING, APOSTROPHE ABUSE...this awful name has it all.
This is a pure SCI-FI SYNDROME name at work! "Hurry! Into the De'Tron machine! We haven't much time!"
This sounds like a hearing aid: "Never miss another conversation with the amazing Audaisha 5000!"
I'm dumbstruck. Just as these dumb parents should be struck....hard.
This is another naming trend that I am helpless to explain: made-up sounding names that have the appearance of adjectives. Can anyone explain the appeal of this? 'Cause I'm at a loss, folks, I really am.
Watch this kid be a brat. You just know it.
OK, this is a big BAD BABY NAME pet peeve for me. I'm Native American. People will ask me, on a fairly regular basis, for NA names for their babies. When I give them names like Tallulah and Anika, they get confused and say, "No, we meant like Cheyenne or Dakota!" Those aren't NA baby names. Those are NA Tribal names. There is a difference, people. And if your baby is Dutch/Irish, he/she is going to look pretty silly with a name like Lakota. But hey, to each their own....
Isn't Tim usually a boy's name? And what's a Breya?
Will we never be free from these unwarranted ATTACKS OF THE Y's???
The ATTACKS just keep coming! Please, won't somebody call a cease-fire?
If the BAD BABY NAME fits, you must Jacquit.
This isn't a CRE8IVE SPELLING....this is a travesty.
"You got to give what you take!"
And I thought Cutter was a bad name!
Isn't this the candy Lucy and Linus are always fighting over in the PEANUTS comic strip?
That is quite a MOUTHFUL.
Are these people related to Pual, by any chance?
This is a terrific example of a PET NAME. People, if you want a dog, buy a dog. Don't do this to a helpless baby.
If you want a dog, buy a dog....!
Um...I think this mom was a tad bit confused. It was the MATERNITY ward you gave birth in, ma'am....
I keep wondering: is this pronounced like "Kaylee" or like "Kelly"? The world may never know.
AND THE WINNER OF BAD BABY NAMES 14 IS.....
