What's in a name?

Read this article
Would you ever consider naming your children JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell or Adolf Hitler Campbell?  In case you decide to do that you will probably not be able to get their name on a cake at Rite Aid!  (Just an FYI for all of you who were going to consider it with your next born!!)
I'm in awe!  I just can't even fathom this.  What do you think the family and friends said when the parents gave their name ideas when they were pregnant?  Do you think they got a lot of "ahh, that's so cute!"  or "that's my favorite name!"  or even "that's what I was going to name Syphalus Gon Area Kla Midea Clap if she was a boy - you are totally taking my boy name!"  Why in the world would you want to put your child on a fast track to name calling and being made fun of?

Don't forget about the lady who named her baby "Meconium".

You need to talk to Becky Hesterman. She can tell you all the weird names people have used for their babies where she works. She siad there was a couple that named their daughter "Beer Can". How sick is that? Yes, it's true. The nurses refused to write the name on anything.
