It seems parents will name their kids anything these days. In reaction to this, I named my child (simply) Lucas James to try to reverse the trend. When he started daycare, I was appalled at the weird names these kids have. One is named Kountri (pronounced "country"). YUCK. What's the worst you have heard?
In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.
My brother in law went to school with one set of twins named Lemonjello and Oranjello and another set named Male, pronounced Molly, and Female. No, I didn't believe him either until he showed me his yearbook with their names and pictures.
In debate in High School, I used to compete against a young lady named Chastity Marie Virgin.

There was a college basketball player in the late '90s named God Shamgod. He played for Providence. I don't personally see the upside of naming you son "God", and it's only made worse by a last name with "god" in it.
And I'm just now realizing the irony of him playing for that particular college.

I work in a call centre. Actual customer names either myself, or my agents have received over the 4 years I've been there ...

I swear to god I have not made a single one up .... I have a list of them at work that I've collected over the years, along with the account number so that new agents who don't believe me can access their files. There's probably 25 more that I've forgotten, but every time I see them, I realize that there are some parents that certainly could have used a little more time analyzing the idea of a name.
I'll forgive the Asian ones. But Harry Muff is just wrong.
You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.
"Because personally if I was being choked by Ric Flair, my personal reaction would be well, "Glrrrrkkk, can't breathe" but after that... "Man, I'm being choked out by Ric Flair, this is so cool." and then some more "Gllllrrrrk, can't breathe."" (Llakor)
Hey kids, remember Rah Digga (allmusic.com)? She named her daughter Sativa. Yes, as in cannabis sativa.
It's really too easy to pick on celebrities with this topic but the worst ones, I think, are Bob Geldolf, who named his daughter Fifi Trixiebelle, and Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller), who named his daughter Moxie CrimeFighter. Eesh.

Thank goodness celebs usually have the money to pay the thousands in therapy bills those names will lead to.
My best hiccups story: Mrs. JJD and I go to Portland a lot for family visits, and for a while we were sick of taking I-5 and freeway driving it back and forth, so we'd take a back way involving taking route 7 from about Spanaway to Morton.
