Say What?!

I have never been one to make fun of someone's name. I mean, Alice WAS in the top 10 list of names (for 1910), and Cletus is surely to be on the list for next year, but we try not to be snobby about our names. I draw the line, however, at some of the names that Cletus tells me about from work. They are just asking to be made fun of .... so, here we go!

GMaster (that's right - pronounced G Master - it's legal and everything .. poor kid)

Myreekole (pronounced Miracle)

La-ia (can anyone guess this one? I couldn't! It's pronounced La"dash"ia!)

And then my favorites, the twins:
Orangejello and Lemonjello (put the emphasis on the "range" and the "mon" in the two words and you'll get close to the pronunciation)

And then, there is Female (pronounced fe-mall-ee ... I can only guess the story behind that one - something about the hospital labeling the baby as female, perhaps??)

Well, hope you enjoyed. I'm sure that Myreekole is writing on her blog right now about her dentist with the crazy name - Cletus!

This is Rachel's sister-in-law (we meet once).
I just have to say, this post is hilarious! (only in the south)
I thought the jello names were urban legend, I can't actually believe those are children's names.
Too funny.

Ricky comes home with crazy names as well and I'm continually amazed at the horrible things parents do to their children. The saddest is the twin girls named Katelyn and Kaitelyn. The family is hispanic so they are pronounced differently but COME ONE! Why? Why?

Travis tested a baby's hearing at the hospital named Blueforreal, because he was "blue for real" when he was born. And I thought Kikka was weird...

Ladashia is my favorite! I think I need to put punctuation that is pronounced in my kids names... When my mom had one of my brothers back in the 80s, the woman next to her named her son Remington Steele.
