A name is just a name or is it?

" It's simple. Some parents are just plain crazy. But few are as crazy as many soon-to- be parents, who, wrapped up in the fear and anticipation, the social status and expectations, go just plain mad."
As I logged on to the internet a headline caught my eye, it read something like this "Parents denied a bid to name their newborn son 4real". I just had to point and click. I thought to myself are they serious? What kind of parents would do that to their child? The name came about during their first ultrasound when they realized the baby was "4real". When they went to register the baby's name the New Zealand government rejected it because the name had to be a series of characters. I just think they were hoping to give this kid a chance at a normal life but the parents would have none of it. With the news came their decision to go ahead and use Superman as the boys legal name and 4 real as his nickname. I am not kidding here! Poor, poor boy, he is in for a rough life! In the spirit of this post I decided to do some research and find some of the most despicable names that have been given to people over the years here are just a few......(sorry if I offend anyone)
1. Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf Lee
2. Harold Bahls
3. Luke Skye Warner
4. Mercedes Binns
5. Vashara Rashea
6. Sharmonica
7. Nancy Ann Seancey
8. Twins Daryl and LaDaryl
9. Captain Bonar
10. Sloe Harlotte
Just a sidenote.....All the above mentioned names have been confirmed! Yes, there are really parents who are this crazy!

I don't doubt it, freakin' morons! And let us not forget the crazies Michael Jackson used:

Prince Michael the 1st
Prince Michael the 2nd
Paris Michael
(nicknamed "Blankie")

It actually hurts, doesn't it?

My sister-in-law taught a Liberty Ann Justice. Jay met Another Johnson, who had a brother Yet Another Johnson. He also knew a girl named Female, her parents told her when they first saw her in the hospital the hospital had already put a name on the crib and they kept it.

Are you kidding me? Female? I have to the conclusion that I don't understand people at all. I do remember when Dallan and I were first married and talking about names we liked. I then told him I really liked the name Parker. He just looked at me like I was crazy and said Mandee his name would be Parker Lott do you really want our son to be called Parking Lott his entire life? I guess not.

Yikes. I don't even understand why people spell normal names all crazy? Are they trying to give their kid a life-long headache? I mean, offense Superman.
