absolute worst possible names - Page 7

post #91 of 334
People I've actually known:
Zephyr
Adelgunde (named after her German great-grandmother or something)
Summa Raine (spelled just like that, child of filthy hippies whose 'names' I've forgotten)

My gf's friend's husband, who is an idiot, wanted to name their son either Neo, after the guy in the Matrix, or Nike, after the shoes he likes to run in, but pronounced to rhyme with Mike.

A lot of Spanish names are just odd to me when I translate them into English: Dolores (Pains), Pilar (Pillar), and combos like Maria Jose (Mary Joseph). I'm sure some English names sound weird when translated, too.

Obligatory urban legend: I heard about a woman who gave birth and overheard the nurses saying a word which was so beautiful that she insisted on giving the child the name: Placentia.

Of course, Nike being the Greek goddess of victory, right? Goddess. Not god.

Except that I pointed that out to him, and he wasn't even aware that it ever referred to a goddess.

The scene in A Fish Called Wanda is good when the hot chick says her brother Otto was confused when he heard about a posh girl named Portia. "Why would her parents ever name someone after a car?"

I dated a girl for a while that was a NNICU nurse. She said a little girl's mother saw "female" written on the side of those little tub things they keep the premature babies in and decided to call the girl "Female," pronounced Fuh-mahl-ee. I couldn't make this up.

Also, I went to HS with a kid named Bud Wiser. Poor bastard.

Working in the area of public benefits fraud, I see some really great ones -
Tae Kwon Da
Dacquiritie's
Zheikilivious
Taqueavious

Also, a kid at my law school was named Titan Steele, and I have two friends that are both named Jim Beam. One goes by James though.

Also recall two brothers in the armed forces around WWII named Segregation and States Rights.

When I lived in North Dakota, my first day on the job I was puzzled why everyone called this younger guy "The Colonel". Found out later his last name was Decker. You had to watch The A-Team to get it.

How about Nascar driver Dick Trickle?

The first name that popped into my head when I read the title was Adolf.

Coincidentally, my sister living in Germany is looking for name suggestions for her son. Hmm. . .

Amanda Lynn. Say it fast and if you're a musician, you'll get it.

When I was in 5th grade we had fun with this, mostly in good names for authors.

So, there was Fifty-Three Steps to the Bathroom by Justin Time, The Circumcision by Dick Hertz, etc.

When I was in the Marines, there was a kid last named Schmuck. He had to serve out his hitch with the word Schmuck on his name tapes.
