P.P.S. Shut Up

To the parent who is naming their son Rebecca~ that is so horrible! What if their son growing up isn’t all the brawny and muscular, too!! Think of what he would think! Um, wrong!!
P.S. I am 19

To the person writing about a boy named Rebecca – You’re not reading at your grade level! That person never said that! And would it have made a difference if boy Rebecca were all femmy and gay, too!! Um, no!!
P.S. I could tell you’re 19

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!

I am thinkimg of naming my girl Oleo. But my husband has a different idea and wants to name her Rodana! What do you think?

Look at that name. Oleo. Look at it and try not to think of cookies. Try really hard. (I think this is a focused visualization technique used by Weight Watchers.)


Of course, if you’re older or Southern, naming your kid Oleo is the same as naming them Land o’Lakes or Parkay, so there’s no way to avoid your food issues, even if you wanted to.

Goin’ Back To Kali

I am having a girl in March. Name is going to be Kali. Can’t decide on middle name.

Isn’t Kali some sort of Hindu deity of destruction? You know, a major figure of a major world religion? A+ on research!

Plants! In! Spaaaaace!

I’ve looked at all these comments about people who hate certain spellings,
pronunciations, and strategic placings, and I just don’t know what to think. When my wife and I had our first daughter, I was lucky enough to name her after a word I fell in love with from middle school. Terra was the word, but I chose not to go with the spelling, and “Tara” didn’t appeal to me. I choose Taira, and my wife chose Rose for her middle name. “A flower of the earth.”
My second daughter, blessed be, was a bit tougher. Many months went by, and finally, at Thanksgiving dinner, my mother suggested a name from Pippi Longstocking. With a few changes, we came up with Onika Marie. …It’s what special about these names that keep them alive. Would we ever think about changing their names? Not in a heartbeat. That’ll be their decision in the future. We’re just a guiding light.

“A flower of the earth.” As opposed to those flowers that grow out in space. God, I hate Wiccans sometimes.


Oh yeah, and special names keep the kids alive, apparently.

I have an unusual name (Abigail) and I’ve never had any problems.

Watch Those Matches

What does anyone think about Phoenix Robert for a boy or Kamryn Taylor for a girl?

I think it’s giving me heartburn.

I’m Proud of Having a Nose

i would like to know what is wrong with the name Lance.? my sons names is lance and he is very proud of it

Is a name something one is proud of? I’m proud of achievements, not of being bold enough to have a name. Hell, it’s a bolder move to NOT have a name.But then again, with this person for a parent, Lance should be proud of any accomplishment he can find.

And He Better Match My Throw Pillows

My name is Cheri and my husbands name is Chris and our first born is named after his father, Christopher. If I have a girl her name will be Chloe Lynn and if it is a boy I like the name (Shaun) Douglas but I would like to spell it Chaun so that all our names start with “Ch”. I noticed that it is not a listed spelling for that name. What do you think?

See, this is what Martha Stewart hath wrought. She’s made people obssessed with having matched sets of things, even if it means scarring your kids.

Comes with ranch or bleu cheese dressing

I almost forgot my all-time favourite, spotted on a lady’s credit card when I worked in a restaurant: Saffron Gardenchild. Bizarrely, I mentioned this to a friend who turned out to know her and swears this is her real name, not one she changed as an adolescent.
