What is up with people naming their children after objects, or days, or animals?

  • Or foods, or days of the week, months of the year, seasons... LOL I would rather see that though, than some of the "Not-Names" that people combine. *shakes head*

  • Ugh. I agree. Some of the names I hear have me convinced that their parents must have hated them. Example: kid with the last name Parks was named "Traylor".

    W.T.F?

  • @ duster~ when my dd had to go to the ER for stitches (cut her finger on a pop can!), we met a woman with a set of twins named "Lemangalo" and "Lemongalo" Pronounced like Lemon-Jello!!!! I could NOT believe it. Woman must have been high when she had them!

  • I worked at an elementary school a few years ago and knew a kid named Road. His siblings were Raine, Edge, Skyler, and Letisha. Also, there were twin girls named Dakota and Montana - or some states.

  • I went to school with a girl named Bambi and another one named Pepper( not related to each other). All I can say is their mothers must have aspirations of them becoming strippers or porn stars.

  • ITA! But just wondering.... where did we get our ideas of "this is a name" and "that isn't a name" from?
