Baby names / don't give a shit thread

Postby bdog » Fri Dec 20, 2013 7:13 am

Jackson and Sophia top the 2013 lists.

I don't give a shit about duck dynasty or any of the characters.

Okay, this is pretty funny, even if it didn't really take off.

"Baby name" sounds like something they're going to grow out of.

I've always liked Oscar. For a girl I'm at a loss. Sheena?

I don't give a shit about the pictures on your phone.

Gideon for a boy, Aislyn for a girl.

I don't give a shit about The Voice.

Clearly the only good baby name left is Hercules Superamerica Maximum Relaximum Rockafella. But I call that one for my first born, so the rest of you chumps are out of luck.

I like names you don't have to pronounce for people or spell for people.

Ninja, what if your firstborn is a girl?

That's a unisex name. Don't be so small minded.

Hate "creative spellings" of common names:

Leslee
Kandie
Kasie
etc

Makes me wonder how good the rest of the spelling skills are. Also makes me think said parents should just get a dog and practice their "creative" skills on that poor beast. I'm with Sno, if I have to ask how to spell it or get corrected on a very common spelling, then it's stupid and an affectation.

Also hate parents who do stupid things to their offsprings' names. Such as Ima Hogg, Mark Markson, John Johnson, etc. Really, that is the best you could come up with??

I think if you're naming your kid Kandie, you've got bigger problems than spelling. She'll be destined to become a stripper.

My kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Baars.
She named her daughter Candy.

You'd think someone with as much experience listening to children mock each other's names would know better, but at least she didn't spell it Kandie, right?

This was a huge pet peeve of my father's before he retired from teaching. Just when he'd mastered the current crop, *BAM* the next year would be the same names with a bunch of high-value Scrabble letters included.

Also, I don't give a shit about end-of-the-year lists.

An old guy I used to work with said he knew her.
