Totally off names for kids

#1
I had a laugh with the ex many moons ago when the sprogs were up for sprouting about what to call them, but this evening at the local busstop some woman was calling out to her anklebiter, who was running around, and I'm sure she was yelling " Malaria, Malaria, cme here Malaria!!" Now that is a classy name for a young girl!

I talked to a midwife in the U.S. a few weeks ago who had an Afro-American client who was determined to name her newborn daughter "Clitoris".

Know an African couple who, because my Dad and his co-worker bought them their wedding rings as a gift, ran their two names together to name their child - a boy - after both of them.

It was Tampet...no word of a lie. :oops: It was pointed out to them that perhaps they should reconsider as in the "western world" a tampet was something quite inappropriate for a child's name.

So Pettam it is then! :x

Many years ago (in the States) I was a volunteer tutor in an inner city public school. Two of my students were African-American twins, nice kids, with the names Arethra and Urethra. Horrible thing to do to a nice little kid. At one point I said to the mom "Urethra, thats an unusual name" and the mom said "Thank you! I wanted it to go with Arethra and it sounds pretty" She hadn't a clue!

In the news in the US today was a story which read (in part)
EASTON, Pennsylvania - The father of 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell, denied a birthday cake with the child's full name on it by one New Jersey supermarket, is asking for a little tolerance.

Heath Campbell and his wife, Deborah, are upset not only with the decision made by the nearby ShopRite, but also with an outpouring of angry Internet postings in response to a local newspaper article about the cake.

Heath Campbell, who is 35, said in an interview Tuesday that people should look forward, not back, and accept change.

"They need to accept a name. A name's a name. The kid isn't going to grow up and do what (Hitler) did," he said.

Deborah Campbell, 25, said she phoned in her order last week to the ShopRite. When she told the bakery department she wanted her son's name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.

Karen Meleta, a spokeswoman for ShopRite, said the Campbells had similar requests denied at the same store the last two years and said Heath Campbell previously had asked for a swastika to be included in the decoration.
Knowingly giving a kid a name like that is a horrible thing to do to a kid.

I do hate when the state must become involved in things like this...but certain lands make certain names illegal to bestow upon children, and perhaps it should be this way.

Missus LL's cousin has called her daughter Atlantic, im wondering if she is gonna call the next sproglet (due feb ish) after another ocean. what the hell do some of these parents think they are doing? do they not realise that they are gonna scar these kids forever with stupid bloody names?

I used to have a chuckle at Biggus Dickus from Monty Python, untill I met some 'alternative' people who named their daughter Yoni.

Someone with a more oriental background than myself pointed out that in Sanskrit - a language loved by al those who strain to be enlighted, unwashed and want to find their 'higher selves'- means: vagina.
Those hippies actually called their daughter cnut!

Read about a guy who named his kid '4real' (with the digit) because when the baby came out he realised it was '4real' ..... how was he allowed to breed?

One of my teacher mates had a girl in her class called Lambrini ("'cos it'll sound really classy when she's older" was the mother's reply, she thought Chardonnay was a bit 'common'). Another one was Schoutte; thinking he was German she got called thick by the kid who informed her it was pronounced 'Scott.'

Not just chavs, what is it with fcuking celebrities (who perhaps are chavs) giving their offspring shite names - Apple, Princess, Pixie; ffs!
