These are all frickin hysterical!
All these posts make me so thankful my husband has never been into any weird or unique names! We basically agreed on our choices right away and decided to go with family names (girl’s name will be my deceased grandmother’s first and middle name; boy’s name will be his deceased grandfather’s first name with his deceased dad’s name as the middle name).

ive seen a lot of people from all different ethnicities name their girls nevaeh (heaven backwards) like someone mentioned earlier. Ive read that its been a fairly popular name with african american girls, starting back in like 2010.
i just dont want to give my future kids names that people might butcher trying to pronounce for 20+ years….

My husband would like to name our future daughter Schneade. I don’t think that’s how it’s actually spelled, but that’s how it’s pronounced. Luckily we’ve agreed on letting me name our child if it’s a girl and that will be Ripley (yes after Alien).
If it’s a boy he gets to name him Ezekiel, which makes me think he’ll belong in Children of the Corn. He really likes biblical names despite being atheist, he even named one of my pets after a biblical character – Lilith.
I should add that my sister had a friend who got pregnant very young and almost named her daughter Placenta because she heard the doctor say it and she thought it was pretty. She had no idea what a placenta was and when she was told what it was she luckily changed that name to like Josephine or something. I’m really hoping the story wasn’t true though, but you never know with some people.

Darling Husband wanted to name Dear Daughter Perpugilliam. NOPE NOPE NOPE.

nerk : the correct Irish spelling of that name is ‘Sinead’ and it’s a very common name in Ireland. However I can understand it would be mispronounced a lot elsewhere. I love the name Dearbhile (Derv-il-a) if we had a girl but Darling Husband has vetoed it for the same reason – it would be butchered outside of Ireland!

My Darling Husband suggested Skelletor for a girl, Kelly for short. I’m almost 100% sure he was joking though..

c3lloninja : Luckily my Fiance and I agree on most of the names we’ve picked. The worst ones I absolutely hate is this trend of using surnames as first names. The stuff that people come up with is ridiculous and make me want to puke. Harper, Griffin, Brady, Emerson, McKinley/Kinsey/Kinsley, Jackson… I cannot stand them. Then the made up ones are completely off the wall, as well. I’ve heard Everleigh, Addison (basically Madison without the M), Ryker, Cabel (Caleb and Abel), Daxton, Brooklyn, Braleigh, Baylor. I’m gonna stop here.. you get the point lol

shalomx7 : I like the name Griffin, but all those combined names are terrible!

I teach, so I see the worst of the worst. I knew a boy named Patrick Patrick, my mum taught a boy named Sputnik and a girl named Placenta. There are so many dreadful, made-up, ridiculously spelled names. My DS is friends with a boy named Quentin… except there is no U in the name and there is some random combination of vowels, including at least one Y. Ugh. Quentin has a perfectly good spelling already! Why saddle your child with something no one will be able to spell, ever, just because you want to be “yooneek”?

An acquaintance of ours recently named their baby boy Salex. Just like Alex but with an “S” in front. I just don’t get it. You had a perfectly good name and went and f-ed it up!

My parents almost named my brother: Waldo Oliver Perry, for the sole purpose that his initials would spell “WOP”, and they could always yell, “Where’s Waldo?!” 🙄

We’re currently brainstorming baby names- my husband keeps suggesting funny names on purpose. We’ve still yet to pick one. That being said, in campaigning hard for Augustus so I have no room to talk, LOL.

shalomx7 : my sister and her Darling Husband who just had a baby recently used a surname as a middle name and Jackson as the first name. Im not a big fan of surnames either, but i do like the name Jackson.
Darling Husband and I are pretty traditional we already have a boys name picked out, but the girls name will be the hardest, cause there are quite a few unique or trendy names that i just love for girls.
the one thing im really not a fan of that i see more often, is using the same initials for everyone. My Darling Husband, his parents and his two siblings all have the same J.L.D initails. When we first discussed having kids he was really big on starting our own unique initial thing, but i was like NO.

No strange names, but my husband hates all boy names. He can’t even come up with one he’d consider. When I was pregnant with our first, we agreed on a girl first and middle name within 10 seconds. We eventually found one boy name we agreed on and had a son. Pregnant now with #2 and praying we don’t have another boy solely bc he has ZERO name options!
