BAD BABY NAMES! Fan Mail #9
Honestly, since my name IS Buffi, I don't suppose I have room to talk. However, as I have lived with it all my life, I feel I have some authority by which to speak of "Bad Baby Names."
To the point: I have a few names you might appreciate.
I gave a shower for a friend (in Texas) who announced that she was planning to name her baby Peightyn. Yes, that is Peyton, only spelled horribly, horribly wrong. This woman is a teacher, yet gave no consideration to the fact that this child will one day have to learn to spell her name. I considered calling CPS.
My brother was recently dating a girl named "Clystia" She swore it was a "family name." Sounds more like something her mother took antibiotics for prior to her birth.
He also has a friend named "Cessna." Yes, that is where she was conceived.
Finally, another acquaintance named her child "Utiva." (You-TEE-va) She was very proud of this unique name. Child abuse, pure & simple.
Those are some pretty bad, bad baby names. I just hope poor Cessna never has a weight problem.
Thanks for reading!
