What I hate is people who give their sons/daughters really common names, and then spell them in a stupid, offbeat way just to fuck up anyone who wants to write their name down in the future.

Seriously, in that list I think Blue Angel is the only name that is somewhat acceptable.

Whereas you could say that Memphis also is at least a common forename, so let's make it Memphis E. Hewson

I don't think this one is all that unusual. It's a Hebrew form of Sarah. A friend of mine has this name, and it's spelled Sarai.


My name is not unusual at all - the only problem I've ever had is some people misspelling it. How hard is it to spell Sharon properly?

I knew a Michael whose name was spelled "Miqel" - I swear I always read it as Miguel.

Are you kidding? I bet she always has people saying "why so blue?", or maybe that would just be me.

Yeah, it's not normal, but compared to some of the other names

My name comes from a popular song, so I know how it is to hear people poking fun of the name, like I wrote on page 3 or so

N.Z. couple can't name their son '4real'

June 21, 2007

WELLINGTON, New Zealand --New Zealand authorities have blocked a couple's bid to officially name their new son "4real," saying numerals are not allowed.

Pat and Sheena Wheaton said they decided to name their new baby "4real" shortly after having an ultrasound and being struck by the reality of his impending arrival.

"For most of us, when we try to figure out what our names mean, we have to look it up in a babies book and ... there's no direct link between the meaning and the name," Pat Wheaton told TV One on Wednesday. "With this name, everyone knows what it means."

But when the parents filed the name with New Zealand's Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, they were told names beginning with a number were against the rules.

The government office has opened negotiations with the parents about the name under a policy that says all unusual names must be given case-by-case consideration.

"The name has not at this stage been rejected," Registrar-General Brian Clarke said in a statement Thursday. "We are currently in discussions with the parents ... to clarify the situation."

Clarke said the rules are designed to prevent names that are "likely to cause offense to a reasonable person." Satan and Adolf Hitler were proposed names that have been declined, he said.

If no compromise has been reached by July 9, the baby will be registered as "real," officials say.

New Zealand law requires all children born in the South Pacific nation to be registered with the Births, Deaths and Marriages registry within two months of birth

Why must parents torture their kids so?

They could've stuck with Fo-real. Stubborn parents. I still stand by Lance Uppercut. If I ever accidentally have children, that name is at the top of my list!
