Naming Kids

I don't think people should name their children after flowers.

No Jasmine. No Lily. No Petunia. No Holly. No Rose. No Hydrangea. No Marigold.

No flowers.

Just my opinion. You can disagree, but I'll ridicule you.

Interesting.........hummmmm what about naming them after cities like Brooklyn or Austin or any other city?? Just curious what you think?? I'm not big on the flower names either but famous people have come up with worse...like Apple!

Or Moon Unit Zappa. My pet peeve is people who are named like, Cindy, but spell it Cyndee or something weird and then get all huffy when you don't spell it right. One lady I used to work with would have a hissy fit every time someone would spell her name Judy, instead of Judi.

Maritni,

Cities might be worse. I see your point. Chattanooga. El Paso. Menomonee. Puyallup. Eureka. Parowan. Eugene. Wichita. Peoria. Yeah. Cities are worse than flowers. At least some of them are kind of OK.

Sarah,
I hate that too. I think I'll start going by Chyuck just to prove a point. I'll get pissed anytime someone spells it Chuck.

What about kids named after cars or just made up names.

I, once upon a time, worked in the Staffing Industry.

I had Porsche’s, Mercedes', Infinity's, Lexus, Ford, (that was really a kids grandmother maiden name but still) My payroll read like the yellow pages for car dealerships.

And then I had names like Tyleaklois, Shalanda, LaMarqueita (named after the both possible baby daddies).

Then the crazies who had a social security card that said Jane Sue Smith, but they want to be called KiKi.

But I always wanted a kid named East LA Marigold-Idaho. I'm nearly moved to put a frowny face.

Almost 10 years ago I met a transexual named Lexus Costanza. No joke. That's like a combination of Ru Paul, a Seinfeld episode, and that gay juice!

Never thought I'd have a reason to say that name again...thanks, Chyuck!
