Ok I thought that the odd baby name suggestion that cropped up on MN was "out there", but this makes puts it all into perspective...

"Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii" is a sentence (in both senses of the word), NOT a name.

"this puts it all into perspective" (the shock was affecting my typing ability - that is my excuse anyway)

Went to an all girls school and there was a girl named, 'Michael' shock

Seemed cruel to me...

I read this earlier and thought "ooh must start a thread on MN about that" - you beat me to it!

Some of the rejected names were absolutely unbelievable, but worse, some of the allowed names were very, very questionable. "Violence"???

Well, yes... all of the allowed names were very, very questionable. Twins called Benson and Hedges????

Ilovemydog -I wanted to be called Michael when I was younger- its so much better than my actual name, and my parents had been goign to call it me if I'd been a boy... too bad they called my younger brother Michael sad

I am astonished they accepted Violence, but rejected Stallion- at least Stallion isn't offensive.

And they didn't even mention 4real which I thought was a very dodgy NZ name...
