We've discussed this on the radio before, but I recently ran into a REALLY bad name. Some parents have no mercy on their kids... but some have no choice.
My Bride and I were looking at getting a puppy, and doing some name research. On the list of baby names given to kids in 2007 (only had time to look at boy names) we found that some parents (in Alberta!) named their kids the following:
B.J. (that's it!)
Kees (Nuts, I can't find my Kees)
Kneaven (is this Kevin?)
Paul-Martins (political anyone?)
Rainbow (um.. it's a BOY!)
Teancum (come on!)
Tru (be best if his brother's name was Dat)
Well, some people just have no choice. Including a guy that I've been dealing with in an insurance claim, who's last name is "Sherstabetoff". Say it out loud... Yes, it is pronounced as you might think. PRON "Sure'stabeatoff". Poor Bastard.
