so, i got curious when i went to the hospital website to see my friend’s baby girl (Juliana Erin – she did a pretty good job with that one), so i started looking at the names of other babies…..
and i’m not kidding, people actually named their children these names:
Shan’thony (yes, the apostrophe is there, AND its a girl)
Calex (isn’t that some sort of abrasive you clean the bathtub with?)
Gilroy (that’s just cruel)
K’Neil (so…..is the K silent?)
Norland (playground torture guaranteed)
McKinley (as in….the mountain??)
Braxton (as in… false labor pains?)
Britash (couldn’t decide between Britany & Ashley, so they made her sound like she’s from London)
Prekton, Jaizek, Taylen, & Jazzlyn (ok, now they’re just making shi* up)
and I shi* you not, someone actually named their child (boy)…… Monkey.
Kind of makes you understand why there are 10,000 Caleb’s, Jacob’s, Madison’s, and Emily’s…. they’d just rather stick with something safe.
