What is in a Name?

Ok, I'm a bit tired of hearing of all these interesting , cutsie, artsy-fartsy names that celebrities are coming up with for their kids. Right off the top of my head I can think if Apple, Suri, Knox ( this poor kid I picture in a Harvard suit with a pipe in his mouth , sitting in a library), and his sister Vivienne. Come on , those two don't even belong to French parents, they are part of the whole Brangelina troop. UGH.

Chris and I thought that when we named Nicole that she had a very unique name. Her legal first name is Honor, after a great , great, great aunt or whatever on Chris' side of the family.

NOW, Jessica Alba has named her new baby girl Honor Marie. She said she wanted a solid ,unique, old-fashioned name for her baby. /sigh

In truth when people hear Nicoles true first name they are like huh? Honor? and I'm like yup, as in Honor thy father and thy mother... ( no that is not why we named her that but it is the best example I can think of when people question that her first name really is Honor)

Where we used to live their was a little girl named Faith, on the same block, and what was weirder was that her middle name too was Nicole. We had Honor and Faith Nicole a couple houses apart, it was kind of funny.

But the names some poeple come up with , even if they aren't celebrities baffles me. Do these people truthfully think that name sounds good?

I remember when my mom and I used to work for the same company, and she was working payroll. She came across this name, and did a double take. ( You know when a name is too long to fit on those tiny form lines, sometimes it will cut part of the name off?) Well when she did the double take her eyes had not deceived her, this kids name on the form from an employee read SHIT. We were like huh? Some moron mom named her kid SHIT? When my mom, desperately trying to keep a straight face questioned the mom, she said "oh no, his name is SHITE ( pronounced shitay)!!! OH. MY. GOD.

On that note I will leave you with this video, and pleae rmember to turn off y playlist in order to hear it!

The first James Bond movie with Sean Connery was Goldfinger. One of the bond girls real name was Honor Blackman. I won't tell you what her movie name was.

I like the name Honor, and the video of the fellow writing tickets is a hoot.

I think the name Honor is beautiful. I remember, when I worked in retail-credit, a woman named Treasure Island. Yeah, thiry years later and I remember that ;) She became infamous around here for killing her mother...I always wondered if the name had something to do with it. Sad really, prople should have more sense.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, beats the twins in my husband's former school district Lemonjello and Orangejello (pronounced leh-MOHN-ghehll-oh and or-AHN-ghehll-oh).

OMG Michelle, lemonjello and orangejello? r u serious? /sorry can't stop laughing.
That's almost as bad as the girl my mom graduated high school with - her parents owned the local candy shop/soda fountain and the girls name was Candy Dish...
