    Re: Worst names you have ever heard?

    My sister used to live in CR. There were brothers in the daycare her kids went to that were Ruckus and Danger (if I remember right). A relative of a relative named their girl Jericho after a football player. On the news around football season there was a story about the Kinnick naming trend, one couple had a Kinnick Trice.

    When we were pregnant with our third, hubby was watching the Masters a month before baby was due. We never can come up with boy names, so we joked if Charl Schwartzel won that would be our boy name (first and middle name) Good thing baby was a girl. ;)

    Re: Worst names you have ever heard?

    When I worked at a Mailboxes Etc a guy came in to get his resume printed out and when he handed it to me I saw in big letters across the top the name Richard Dick. I was pretty proud of myself for not laughing out loud in front of him.

    Re: Worst names you have ever heard?

    I know the grandpa of a baby girl named Kinnick Trice. They are supposedly a house divided although they are all really Hawk fans except the baby daddy. I hate names where you have no clue what the gender might be.

    Re: Worst names you have ever heard?

    Maybe the US needs a list of "official names"

    Teenager Blaer Sues Iceland To Use Own Name

    A 15-year-old is suing the Icelandic state for the right to use her name because it is not on the country's "approved" list.

    Blaer Bjarkardottir has been told she cannot officially use her name because it does not appear on the Personal Names Register, a list of 1,712 male names and 1,853 female ones.
    Icelandic officials maintain the list is kept to ensure names fit Icelandic grammar and pronunciation rules and will stop children from being given embarrassing names.
    Oddly, the name Elvis is on the list, as it conforms to Icelandic guidelines but Cara and Carolina have been rejected because the letter c is not part of Iceland's 32-letter alphabet.

    If a name is not on the list then parents can apply to a special committee for permission to use it, which means it can then be used on official documents such as school registers and passports.
    However, in Blaer's case, the committee refused and now she and her mother are to become the first to take their case to court.

    This isn't really bad names but a bad grouping. One of my wifes friends named their 3 boys Brady, Grady, Brody. Those kids have no clue which one their parents are yelling for.

    I knew a family whose three kids are Mackenzie, Matthew, and Maxwell, which aren't so bad on their own, but they went by the shortened versions: "Mack", "Matt", and "Max".
