    Frank Zappa named his daughter "Moon Unit 2". She goes by "Moon" Zappa. I thought that was weird. This tops it.

    Saw this on the Philip Defranco show. Agent shouldn't have mocked the kid, especially if right in front of her, but mom shouldn't be surprised something like this might occur when you name your child such an obscure name.

    People should be allowed to be mocked and laughed at for doing stupid things.

    I'm tired of this politically correct speech. If someone wants to name their kid "batshi* crazy", then that's fine, but I'm also allowed to laugh my as* off at their expense.

    Anyone telling me that I shouldn't laugh will be met with harsh words indicating I have the same right to laugh as their stupidity as they have the right to name their kid a stupid name, as an example.

    Yeah but you shouldn't ever laugh at the kid. Until the kid turns 18, the kid has no say in what his/her name is. So laugh at the parent, not the kid. Now once the kid turns 18, he/she is responsible for keeping the name, although at this point, it's generally a pain in the ass to change it because all legal documents like driver licenses, university transcripts, etc., must be updated to reflect the new name.

    True story:

    My mother was a school teacher and once had a second grader named La-a.

    Her mother pronounced it: La(dash)a

    She also had an Automne once. My mom was convinced the parent was illiterate and couldn't spell Autumn correctly for the birth certificate.

    A pregnant woman gets into a car accident and goes into a coma.

    After nearly six months, she wakes up to find that she is no longer pregnant.

    Frantically, she asks the doctor about her baby.

    The doctor replies, "Ma'am, you had twins! A boy and a girl. The babies are fine. Your brother came in and named them, if you don't mind me saying he does seem a bit of a redneck!"

    The woman thinks to herself, "Oh no, not my brother!" Expecting the worst, she asks the doctor, "Well, what's the girl's name?"

    "Denise," the doctor says.

    The new mother thinks, "Wow, that's not such a bad name! I like Denise!"

    Then she asks the doctor, "What's the boy's name?"

    The doctor replies, "DeNephew."

    My kid went to school with a “Sky”. Brothers/ sisters are named Stormy, Summer, Shade. The mom’s name is Sunshine.

    I’m convinced you should have to take an IQ test to have kids.
