    met a baby boy named "General Lee" - that is, first name "general" last name "lee". not as in the heroic historical figure, as in the red car with a stripe.

    gotta wonder about people......

    That's a weird name. Out of curiosity, how did you know it was after the car instead of the general? Either way, it's still a bit odd.

    At least it is a no-brainer what the kid names his penis.

    When I was a little kid, I knew a girl named "Precious." There's some pretty sadistic parents out there.

    because the mother didn't even know that there was a historical person. talk about a moron. basically, a kid whose cousin goes to my sons school, so the kid and his mother came to a fund raiser on the weekend. and the aunt thinks that the parents are morons, too, and told my wife the whole story.

    the book Freakonomics talks about children's names and how they can affect behavior. Kinds with names like "Winner" and "Loser" - siblings that turned out completely opposite to their names.

    Then there's the young girl named "Temptress", who was a bad case of miscommunication between new mom and hospital staff.

    It seems that people with a certain name often act similar. I know it seems that way with my name.

    I once knew a girl named "Naughty", spelled way differently though pronounced too similar for anyone to tell the difference.

    There was a Nicholas Cage SNL skit where he was trying to think of a good name for his baby with his expectant wife. His name was pronounced "Os-wee-pay" Spelled Asswipe.

    I knew a kid in high school named Brick. Not so bad, but his last name was Wall. WTF were his parents thinking?

    I sometimes think it should be illegal to name your kid anything outside a certain range of non-detrimental names... but I guess it's just more natural selection. I wonder if a study has been done to say whether people with non-"normal" (for their society/culture) names generally do worse in life. I would have to guess, on average, a kid named John will do better than a kid named something that begs to be ripped on.

    From what I understand, the Jons of the world have it pretty bad.

    I've found the douchebaggery to be individual-specific, not to the entire spectrum of people named Jon.
