    Reminds me of two one-time “Simpsons” characters named Bort; the titular family was in Itchyandscratchyland where Bart was at the gift shop and eyeing personalized license plates. Also, not to mention I came across a boy named Deyahtzee during my New Mexican missionary service (I was told that when he was born, his sister told her parents to name him after de Yahtzee game).

    I’ve always felt sorry for these kids that will have to spell out their name over and over for the rest of their life.

    I always wondered whether you had served a mission, NOMROM. I served mine in New York City (Greek) from 1980-1982.

    Oh, topic? I’m with Rat on this one, believe it or not. Cutesy names (and cutesy spelling of conventional names) tend to set my teeth on edge — they’re one of my biggest pet peeves. Exactly what are the parents of these kids trying to prove, anyway?

    The only advantage of wierd names is there will be fewer people who share the name, less chance of some idiot mixing you up with the other one. The other one being the one Wanted by the Feds, or who owes a lot of money, etc.

    That their children are unique, just like every other human being on this planet.

    Teachers should just assign each kid in their class a number.

    One of my students was doing practicum as a teacher in Colombia and came across a kid named Usnabi. U.S. Navy. His mom thought it sounded good.
    True story.

    I was one of those, back in the 60s before weirdo made-up names were normal. Named after my mother’s then-BFF’s child. They lost touch before I was 10, and I got stuck with the moniker.I now hate my first name and don’t use it. Thank goodness I have a nice, dull middle name.

    And, so…
    REPENT! The End Is Near!
