I had a teacher in high school named Jan. She had a good friend who ended up having twin girls about (now) six or seven years ago. What did this woman name them? Pork and Beans! No joking! How awful is that?!

There was another woman who worked in the school. One of her good friends named her daughter Aqua May.

WTF?

This name isn't personally for me but I thought it could be interesting. For those who like using masculine names for girls what do you think of Bryanne or Bry-Anne, not like Brianne but BRYAN and ANNE mixed? I knew a Kevanne in high school and at first it was weird but now its normal to me. Ok enough rambling, thanks for your time!

Since there has been an enormous recent growth in the number of people who are bashing their heads against their computer keyboards and naming their unfortunate offspring with whatever jumble of letters comes up....

I was wondering, what are your very very hated, least favourite kry8tif and made up names?


EDIT: I should add, if I personally see anymore kids named Kayden, Braidyn, Shaydon, Jaedyn, Trisyfhdseeeayden....I may projectile vomit onto my computer screen.

I work in a daycare and we have two new children coming in on Monday..twins...named Yourmajesty (boy) and Hermajesty (girl). I kid you not. And their mother is pregnant with a boy to be named Hismajesty.  

The women I work with are teachers so they had more bad names, such as. A child whose name is pronounced Ab-sah-dee and spelled Abcde. And a child whose named is pronounced a-soul and spelled Asshole.

 EDIT: I'm not bullshitting. Bullshit would be Orangejello and Lemonjello. There are just off names in this place and a whole lotta J names. Jaeloni, Jaelan, Joryn, JaMarion, Janaya (and a Geniyah). And A's -- Amajeon, Amaray (said Amore, like in That's Amore), Amarhi, Anaya, Ameenah.

I was just watching my daughter today playing with my old Cabbage Patch Kid  (I've had her 24 years) and started thinking about the names of these dolls.  My doll came with the name Ida Adriana.  Now, when I was 7 and was given this doll I remember initially being quite disappointed with the name but I didn't change it and now I quite like it.  So I was just wondering, has anyone else had a Cabbage Patch Doll and what was it's name?

What do you think of the name Brett on a girl? I'm usually not one for liking boys-names-on-girls, but Brett has been pretty unisex for a while now (there is a female character named Brett in Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises), and it's starting to grow on me.

I actually know a girl, in her mid 20s, who uses Brett has a nickname for Elizabeth. I really like it, because it's a less feminine option (and yet still not 100% masculine) for a nickname while still giving her the option of being called Liz or Libby or Beth if she so chooses.

I doubt I'd use it, but what do you think of Elisabeth with the nickname Brett?

Which do you prefer, Maud or Maude?

Do you think the name is too "old womanish"? It's a name I've always loved,  but have always been told that it's too old-sounding. Recently I'm starting to like the idea of the name for my (soon-to-be here) little girl -- the previous post reminded me of it -- ... but I've never found a middle name that I think goes well with it. Any suggestions?

This is more of a discussion on stereotypes of names (like what makes a name "sexy"), but a lot of you will probably find it interesting:

I had a friend in high school named Sterling. How do you feel about that? I kind of like it.
What about Clay? I met a kid named Clay Sterling today, and that's what reminded me of Sterling.
