iApprove: Bad Baby Names.

April 1, 2009

Not bad baby names — I’m referring to Bad Baby Names, the blog.

Naming your baby is a tenacious task.  You don’t want to saddle him or her with a name that’s too common, but you don’t want to lay on something that’s going to get him/her teased relentlessly in school.  You want to give him/her a name you really love, but you don’t want it to sound like you made it up for a D&D character that you created on marijuana.

Because, seriously, there are names like that.

For those fringe names – the ones that send you reeling in shock, or cause you to fear the baby’s safety – a few brave souls have stepped up to the plate.  They venture out into the deep, dark, Internets, collect these names, and then bring them back and present them to us so that we can mock them relentlessly.  Cie’erra.  Avon.  Whiteangel Victoria.

If you’re anything like me, and get huge kicks (or squicks) from reading about the horrors that some parents have inflicted on their unwitting children, pop over to http://badbabynames.blogspot.com/
