  • Wow! Some people come up with some weird names.
    Not the worst though... A lady that went through my friend's line (she works at Tops) was named EntheheatO'passion (no typos). Can you imagine trying to spell/write that and the embarrassment?.. Not to mention having to go to school with that name. She thought it was a joke until she showed her license for the check.

  • Although they may be 'cute' for young children (I don't think they are!), but can you imagine those same children in school, high school, college, and then at a job....oh my goodness why do people name their children like that. I know this will get downvoted but really would you feel if your name was Happy? Strawberry? Snowy? Fall? Feather? Snappy? honestly.

  • No, it seems cute when they are little but I don't think they will appreciate having to explain their names to people their whole life. There are cultural differences though, so unless they are from a place where these types of names aren't so unusual,  I say it's a really bad idea.

  • I would not name my child that. But, i think they are cute names. People come in every shape & form, we all have different likes & dislikes. I would not find it odd...i would think it's cute for her kids, but not mine.

  • Some will do anything to make their child stand out. What they don't stop to think about is would that child want a name like that and that they are special for just who they are and not their name.

  • I had a teacher whose married name was Happy Hill. Her parents had 5 boys and expected another so they were 'happy' to have a girl. Then there is of course Happy Gilmore.
    I don't personally like the name not Strawberry but there are MUCH worse names out there. (Billclinton, Screwdriver, Fellatio and Condom to name just a few that I have read about.)

  • Maybe she liked the movie Happy Gilmore and the cartoon Strawberry Shortcake?

    No, I personally would not use those names, but who am I to tell someone what they can or cannot name their own child?

  • Sometimes people just don't really have a clue in naming they're kid and they don't think in the long run how it would affect the child when they are older.

  • No I wouldn't and I agree, think of the child as it is growing up and as an adult. I knew a lady named her Daughter Tomorrow. Once her Step-Mom at work said, "Yesterday, Tomorrow went shopping." What a laugh we had, so they should always think of the child, not how badly they want to be a DIFFERENT.
