I totally have a thing for baby names. Sometimes this fixation leads me to laugh at others. Not the nicest, especially when my daughters name is considered strange to some. However, at least my daughters name is an actual word, not a word contrived by throwing your cat at your keyboard or smoking crack and playing Boggle. Her name is different, but it is spelled just like it sounds, saving her from going through life spelling her name out for all and sundry cause her mommeigh thought it would be kewt and klevehr to name her PighPur.
Yeah, I have issues. Which brings us to…
Every year, the local paper in my area does a feature of babies born in the last year whose parents want to show their pics. Check it out…
The not bad, but so overplayed:
Ava-9 of them.
Gracie/Gracey/Gracie/Gracee and Graycie
Olivia/Alivia-6 of them.
The good names, kree8tyvely spelled for yewneekness!
Jaiymee (damn, not only did they get the double “e” in there but also a “y”. Well played, Jaiymee’s parents, well played.)
Now on to the WTF category:
Paisley and Paizlee
Oaklee and Oaklie
Kamree, KamBree, Cambree, Kamrey
Kaydense (evil evil spelling)
Londyn, London and another London
Breklynn and Breklyn (This to me sounds like the noise my cat makes just before he pukes on the carpet)
Katilane Marhea (Marie?) Idk.
Saylor x 2
Kadence (yeah, he is def. a boy)
Carver (Nip/Tuck fan anyone?)
Ryker x 4
Jack-Danial (oh how cute and funny. except not.)
People scare me.
