Anyone who would name there kid crimefighter should be locked up for abuse.

My pet peeves, any child named after a city. I've ran into a Hollywood, Austin, Dallas, Dakota, Virgina. Southerners do this quite alot.

    Thank goodness celebs usually have the money to pay the thousands in therapy bills those names will lead to.


Don't forget Dweezil and Moon Unit Zappa....

    You just can't find Disney door plates with those names on them.

Somewhat Guilty as well - my daughters are Catarina (but everyone knows her as Caty or Cates) and Amity - she decked a boy in her class last year after he called her the "Amityville Horror" thus negating the meaning of her name. It's also the name of the island in "Jaws".

I work with a woman named Bunny. Cute (maybe) if you are in your 20s, but she is in her 50s.

Austin isn't bad.

As far as Dweezil & Moon Unit Zappa goes, don't forget they have a brother named Ahmet.

The legend goes that Dweezil is named after Frank's nickname for his wife's baby toe.

I have a co-worker named POOYA...he's east Indian...friendly as anything, but he's a big ball of stress at time. Doesn't help when people mispronounce his name (calling him BOOYAH) and sometimes call him BOOYAKA or something like that.

10 years ago I was a store manager at a McD's. A new girl started that everyone from her HS called Mel. Most of the kids thought her name was Melanie but since I had hired her and did payroll I knew her name was Melody.
Now Melody seems like a good name right? Well, during the summer her older sister (who was at college) worked there. Her name was HARMONY. Their parents named their kids Harmony and Melody like the really bad 70's song.

    And I'm just now realizing the irony of him playing for that particular college.

To be fair, it was Shamgod Wells when he was recruited to Providence. There was a reason that involved divorced parents why he changed it to God Shamgod, but it is too complicated for me to really try to remember the details. I'm pretty sure the Dominican Friars were really proud to have a student named God. He was a jerk and a lousy driver, but if Corey Wright makes a lay-up at the buzzer in regulation of the Elite Eight against Arizona, he would have been the point guard for a Final Four team.
And, even though this was the name of an extremely successful basketball coach, you are probably going to have the state take the kid away from you if you name him Adolph.

Does he drive a Mercedes and is that where the 2nd daughter was conceived? The name would make sense...

I, for one, have no problem with the name Amber.


I did go to school with a girl named PALACE. One day a teacher asked her why she was named that and she replied "Because one day I gonna live in one". I think she barely made it out of middle school.

There was also a girl named SEQUOYIA,like the tree, which was actually quite fitting since she like was 6ft tall in 5th grade.

They used that whole bit in a Chevy Malibu ad, if I'm not mistaken.

I went to middle school with a girl from Korea (I think) named Ha Ha.

And the local "wacky" morning DJs used to do go through the NCAA rosters each fall and present the top ten player names, and the best they ever found was a guy named Wonderful Terrific Kuntz III.

I don't think it was a Chevy ad I think it was a Buick ad.

But it was a GM brand car though.
