What's in a name

So with our child due to be born quite soon we've obviously started to think about names. You have to be very careful as it is so easy to create a combination that doesn't quite mean what you hoped. My sister almost called her first Jenny Taylor for example. But how did this couple not spot this howler?! (Click for bigger)


The playground is going to be a lonely place for this poor little lad

friend of mine was going to call his kid "Luke". "Luke Wright"..

Wife stopped him.


I do recall walking to the registry office to register my daughter's name (during a poll tax demo in Edinburgh, no less!) and almost changed her name.. Oh, the feeling of power..

Reminds me of my first network admin job when someone decided on first 4 characters of surname & first character of first name as network ID's for everyone, so I was RICEM and my idiot colleague called Paul Drew was aptly given DREWP

Well... we survived being called flower (by Dad) and chicken (by mum for a decent while (Along with a number of more telling names, I'm sure)

JUST REMEMBER sprouts are sprouts not flowers, fruit or jewelery.

Herby wibbles will do just fine :0)

I can't believe they won't change the name!! I mean how cruel can you be simply for the sake of not being bothered with changing some documents!! Mind you, my nephew's initials are HRT, so I guess these things happen!!
