Boy, his name was so unpronounceable, I can't even replicate it here...it was sort of like "Jamaldeverontzysdeshonnetay".

I knew kids in Jr. High named Butts. Golly, I felt sorry for them.

Then there were the hippies I knew who named their triplets Huey, Dewey and Louie. I think they were smoking something hippie-ish when they came up with that burst of genius.

That is hysterical, because when I was pregnant my husband and I joked about naming our kids that if we had triplets. (We had only one, a girl.) Those names rhymed with our last name.

Had family friends years ago with the last name of Todd. They joked about naming their last son Sherman Herald Icabod Todd (check out the initials), but cooler heads prevailed on naming day - thank goodness .

I also went to school with an unforunate girl with the name Billie Beaver.

I work in a pediatric health care facility. We currently have 42 little girls named "Nevaeh". That is Heaven spelled backwards in case you didn't already know - very trendy in some circles right now. In fact, Nevaeh is squeaking out Miracle as the premature baby girl name of choice.

Other new trends seem to be the royal baby boy: King, Messiah and Rex..... please.

Our neighbors had a baby a few years ago (their last name is Peters) and the husband wanted to name it Peter. He wasn't joking either..
