Crap baby names

I'm an Alistair, and have far too many middle names, so I can identify with this site: Baby's named a bad, bad thing as a warning against the bestowing of rubbish names on children.

I've always thought that people should be made to take exams before they a) vote, b) use the internet or c) are allowed to breed.

This website confirms my worst fears.

We were too poor in our family to have middle names.

We've had a baby named after the after-shave the "father" wore - she forgot to ask him what his name was.

I would have like to have had a name that existed before 1942...

Not to mention that fact that I am NOT a morning person. It would have been more appropriate to name me Midnight or 2 A.M. I think my parents were being ironic when they named me Dawn.

By any other name, I would still smell.

True. But never take that for granted.

I agree about the exams. I actually like my names and lobbied for the use of my last name as my son's son's middle name, and it happened. I could have probably explained that better.

I agree about the exams as well. Parents don't think about the children and how much they will suffer with thoughtless names.

Names are not just names; they play a role in providing the bearer personality and confidence.
