I had an experience that I had to share, and it works so well for this thread.

Last week i was visiting a friend, her husband, her husband's parents and her parents. My dear friend is utterly, obscenely pregnant. (seriously, the fact that she walks amazes even her. This has little to do with the story, except it give you a more accurate picture.) She and her husband have decided to name the child Rodrick Ari. Which i think is kinda nice. But her parents want the baby named "Arnold Micheal" and his want it named "Charles Dyke"

But she and her husband are agreed on the name. And so, among the arguements (LOUD arguements.) she suddenly stood up, picking up her husband's cane and waved it at all assembled, announcing. "If you don't all give this up, so help me, I'll name the baby Baelfire!"

Now her husband really does want to name the baby Baelfire.

I like Rodrick Baelfire.

Unfortunatly, so does her husband.  >:D

I say unfortunately, but she is actually coming around to the idea. Once he assured her he was not going to push for the middle name "Rumplestiltskin"

The name Sean bugs me on Sean Bean. Either you are Seen Bean or you are Shawn Bawn. You can't have it both ways sir.

I went to the Dr on monday, and the girl sitting across the way from me in the waiting room was named... Latrine.

You miss...are named after a toilet.

I guess John is too.  We won't talk about D!ck, Willy or Harry.

A former coworker told me that her hs principal's name was Richard Head.   Coworker was in her late 50's early 60's at the time (2008) so I'm hoping that Richard Head's parents were either naive or that nickname for Richard didn't exist yet.

Fraid not.  That nickname (if you're thinking about the one that the filter translates as 'wingadingdingy') goes back several hundred years.

My late Dad was born in 1923 and had that nickname (remember 'wingadingdingy' Tracey was popular as well as the actor 'wingadingdingy' Van Dyke).
I suspect the connection to a part of the male anatomy may have happened later.

In Jane Austen's Persuasion, Richard Musgrove was referred to as having lived up to his nickname. I'm pretty sure it's had negative connotations for awhile.

Before they married DS2 made DIL promise that their daughter would be named Roma. Not bad, it actually goes with the last name.

If they had twin sons...yes, you guessed it, Romulus and Remus.  Fortunately twins don't run in the family.

I actually have a cousin named Roma Rose.
To tell on myself, when I first met her, I thought her name was really funny. The reason? I just thought  "Aroma Rose." (I was a teenager and she was an adult. I was on a family trip, meeting relatives for the first time.)

I met a very nice lady named Jocasta today. I refrained from asking if she had a son.

Or was she married to a younger man.

As her second husband......

Southern Maryland birth announcements for today:

Nothing too radical except for this:

Baby Gianna has sisters named:

Jzabrielle
Jzayla

A 20-something(?) barista at Starbucks had a nametag that said "Maximillion".  I asked if that was his real name and he said yes, he goes by Max, but a coworker had made his nametag.  I told him I liked it and he said he had never met another Maximillion, but usually Maxwell.
Next time you run into him, you can let him know there's at least one other; a guy I attended school with, with whom I shared my first boy-girl dance. He'd be about 30 now. Maximillion is a very nice name, in cursive with little doodle hearts on pale colored note paper. Though I had a hard time with the "x".

Recent baby announcements in my area had a new baby with a normal name, but her mother's name was Spring Dae. I like it; might give Sunny Day (Scrubs fans?) a run for her money if I ever have another daughter.  >:D

At the hospital where I used to work, we had a doctor named 'Wendy Day,' and when she was paged, it sounded an awful lot like 'Windy Day.'
