Hubby and I are always commenting on the strange names some sports figures have, especially in football. It's not just sports, but Hollywood, politics and many times your next door neighbor. Makes me wonder what the parents were thinking, were they still under the influence of hospital drugs when they picked their baby names?
I'm talking about first names, not last names, especially not cultural names like Fuamatu Ma'afala or Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, although Pat Angerer of the Colts is a really good name for a football player.
We have no choice about what last name we inherit, but our parents hold full responsibility for the names they choose to saddle their offspring with. I'm also not talking about the nick-names bestowed upon an individual, like 'refrigerator', 'pork chop', 'boss'.
D'Brickashaw Ware, Guy Whimper, Demarcus Faggins, Meweld Moore, Vontaze Burfict, BenJarvis Green-Ellis, come to mind, along with Johnny Cash's song, A Boy Names Sue. As you watch College football and Pro football games today, be sure to notice the first names of the players.
For some it is the combination of first and last name that makes us smile, like Fair Hooker, De'Cody Fagg, Foxy Foxworth, Ben Gay, Richie Rich, Uranius Johnson, YourHighness Morgan.
The list of the most unusual baby names of 2012 was just published, and as Business Insider points out: parents today are getting more creative than ever before in their choices for baby names. I have to wonder what were the parents thinking??? See the names below the fold, leave any names that make you smile in the comment section.
There were some very unusual names this year. Monalisa made the list, along with Rogue (like X-Men), J’Adore (like the Dior perfume), and Jagger (like Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones or the Maroon 5 song “Moves Like Jagger”).
Next year promises to continue the trend of bizarre baby-naming with some even more unusual names, according to a recent article by Nameberry.com, which predicted the top 14 baby-naming trends for 2013. ...
