    Vagina and Toylanda. Seriously.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Worst names you have ever heard?

    My wife works with kids in a psych hospital. She's seen kids with all sorts of weird names. Princestiara (one word) is one of her favorite first names she's come across. Also she's literally seen dozens of kids named "Unique" with some special ghetto spelling. There has also been multiple girls named "Chastity" born to single mothers. I find the irony of all of these pretty funny.

    My son has not one but two boys in his class named Kinnick. My wifes cousin named his kid Kinnick and my brother in law was going to name his kid Kinnick until they found out they are having a girl.

    Seriously, how would you like to be named after a football stadium? I just want to slap the **** out of every parent with a child named Kinnick.
    They aren't named after a stadium. The stadium, and the kids, are named after the same man. Derp.

    What if I had a kid named Trice? It's actually kinda catchy

    Must be two. He's still in Des Moines.


    ISU fans are the greatest in the world. All they ask for is hope and the belief that we have a chance to win every time we step on the field - Johnny Majors (paraphrased)

    this thread reminded me of this article.

    American Baby Names Are Somehow Getting Even Worse

    other day in the gym I heard a dad yell for his two sons "Hemingway....Remington, get over here."

    I love it - and it's 100% true. If you google message boards to help name your child (which will be mostly women), you'll see that those names are all 100% accurate. I've read a woman who was named Kelly and her husband was named Bryan come up with "Brylee" for their daughter - yeah, that kid's going to strip, because nobody is taking an adult Brylee seriously. Another woman named her daughter Jersey, her last name was Shore. This was AFTER the show came out.
