Another Crazy Name

Just saw this one today of a newborn baby... Matisyn. Really? WHY WHY WHY?!?

Because they can!)

Because the mother does not have an education.


(Autodidacts may excuse themselves from my generalization.)

Because they REALLY want to make sure she knows how to spell her name. . .she's going to have to spell it out. . .every. . .day. . .of. .her. .life.

ya know, it's only a matter of time before someone starts spelling names using IM shortcuts or text messaging.

I don't even know how to pronounce that.

OK that one is bad, but did I ever tell you what my brother named his kid? Tuff.

Yeah T.U.F.F tuff.

The poor kid is going to get beat up every day at school

If we ever have a son, I'm stealing Tuff. Or maybe I'll just change my own name.

My husband's niece was telling me about a family she knows who loves (and I mean LOVES) all things cowboy. They named one of their sons Brody O and their daughter Justa Cowgirl. (She couldn't remember the other boy's name, but it's as bad as the other two.) Awful. Just awful. If someone is going to use a "trendy" name, they should at least spell it normally--for the child's sake.

When Phil and I were first married, a couple in our ward got up to bless their newborn son. They named him Tiko (pronounced 'tee-koh') Scott. Before the prayer had even ended, I leaned over to Phil and poked him in the ribs a couple of times, whispering "tee-koh, tee-koh." Poor kid. He hadn't even been blessed yet and I was making fun of his name.
