Me and my Dh were talkign about awful baby names, and i thought I'd share.

I used to work in a passport office - and we had an application for a brother and sister....

She was called Florence-Jolly (yes, with the hyphen) and he was called Lionheart! LIONHEART! grin

Still makes me laugh... poor love!

Who's heard of worse?

My friend taught a Nike-Town - really sad

I was reading a newspaper a few years ago and came across an article about "Mums Who Like To Dress Sexy and Embarrass Their Children". I realised that I used to go to school with one of said mothers who has blessed two of her kids with the names DKNY (no idea how you pronounce this, as the letter or "Dick-Nye" perhaps?). The other was called Joop. shock

Oh! Just remembered another friend taught a Siderella, NOT Cinderella, SIDERELLA - just don't understand!

Ethel & Maud, just why would you lumber a child with that.

knew a couple of girls in the early 90s who named their daughters tyrion and daryon, not that strange compared to some but must be made up surely for girls.

Years ago I met a hardcore Guns and Roses super fan mum at a tots group who had a little boy called Axl and a little girl called Rose, she had Axl and Rose car stickers on her back windscreen above their seats too.

I know of a kid called Hendrix and I know a really really lovely family who have a son called Sherlock.

How gutted would you be if you were named after a famous person that you couldn't stand? My ds would have to change his name by deed pole if we'd named him Hendrix, he reckons that on a technicality Hendrix is overrated on his guitar playing technique and played quite sloppily. His favourite guitarist ever is Jimmy Page and spookily enough we named ds James.

Loving Danger is my middle name grin

I've just spotted the Orson Kart one - are you in North Yorks I wonder smile

I can verify that one is genuine as I used to have a friend who worked for the NY house of records & he was one of her favourite listings - along with Shittibul Hussein - though that one can probably be forgiven as being ESL

I know of a Lordy-Ann [girl] and a Sharky [boy]-they must be late teens now and went to the same school.

Did anyone see that episode of the chase where Bradley Walsh couldn't contain himself when one of the questions had the athletes name - fanny schmeller- in. So funny.

Ancient and distant relations Boy and Baby and if that wasn't bad enough surname was Fokker.

Dsis's old tutor was called Phillip McKraken nn Phil.

Bootsy, My DH is a crazy Guns 'n' Roses fan but DS1 got off quite lightly, being named after Slash (real name Saul Hudson)

bootsycollins Sat 09-Mar-13 18:22:51

Love Slash, he's a cool guy and doing well musically still, Axl is still a skinny whining little angry man.

I have a very lovely friend whose son is Serge after Kasabians guitarist/lyricist/full time love god Serge Pizzorno.

Mercedes and Innocent are catholic saints names popular in spain and Mexico. Jesus is also popular in these countries.

When we lived in Seattle I knew a guy called Cash and for a while considered calling Dd Seattle. I still quite like it.

I also have heard of sisters called Whitney and Britney.

There were twins born somewhere around Glasgow named Dolce and Gabanna.

From a celebrity standpoint Sharlene Spiteri has a daughter named Misty Heath. Wonder how many boys will comment about wanting to climb on her 'misty Heath'. Dear god!!

I think I've won this.


Pronounced La Dash Ha

Firstly it's a terrible made up name.

Secondly, it's a HYPHEN!

Everytime I heard it I want to say La Hyphen Ha

Urban myth. This article highlights the fascist undertones of this urban myth.

Zombie thread.

LovelyBranches Fri 20-Mar-15 11:56:46

Thanks burga for your comment but it is actually true and I'm not making it up. As for fascist undertones I have no idea how you've come to that conclusion but you are very insulting to say such things.

American kid. Disastrous name.

burgatroyd Fri 20-Mar-15 16:24:21

I actually meant racist! Auto correct!

MaudeLebowski Sat 21-Mar-15 14:00:12

Eurgh, as if you revived a zombie thread to be racist - with an urban myth that was already told in the earlier pages in 2010 confused

Bit embarrassed for you really.
