BAD BABY NAMES 21: Can I Get an Amen?
I don't even know where to begin with this one.
I'd tell you I love this name...but I don't want to feed you a lyne.
There are MOUTHFUL names...and then there's this name. A MOUTHFUL Supreme!
Anyone else picturing the baby from the movie "Willow"?
I love Arthuriana, and I love Arthurian names. But not only do I find Balin to be an unattractive name in and of itself...it's also kind of like naming your kid Abel. It's a stigma most parents want to avoid.
Whoo-wee doggies! Have we got us a REDNECK HALL OF SHAME name today! I tell you what!
But is he great?
I can just see the argument these parents had over this name:
"Remington Steele was the greatest show ever!"
"No, it's Parker Lewis Can't Lose!"
And voila...a BAD BABY NAME is born.
At the sound of LeTone the time will be...time for a legal name change.
All I can think of when I see this name is the shrieking, grating voice of Mrs. Olsen on "Little House on the Prairie" as she screams for/at her husband. Not a pleasant association.
I think this may be a case of someone who HEARD a name, loved it, but had never actually seen it spelled before....I hope.
Oh, no! It's an ATTACK OF THE Y's! Take cover!
Someday, Baby Brinkley, you too can grow up to marry an ugly pop singer and even star in his videos!
"EvaJo, have you seen that there Lurali down yonder?"
And his brothers, Pickup and Hatchback.
Say that again? Nope, not any better the second time.
I think this family might need "Hooked on Fonyx."
Of all the BAD BABY NAMES blunders, I understand APOSTROPHE ABUSE the least. What does it add to a name? Seriously? Does anyone know?
Did they have a baby, or are they marketing a new perfume? You be the judge.
File this under: giving a baby way, way, WAY too much to live up to.
AND THE WINNER OF BAD BABY NAMES 21 IS....
I keep wondering if Mom named baby after the first word she uttered when labor was finally over...HALLELUJAH!
