ok, my kids are named yawningly boring names and I like it that way. But i spent HOURS on this website laughing my ass off,and you might too:

churlita

There was a kid named Resin at my daughters' school. Because you really want to name your kid after the worst part of the weed...

Jennifer

Maybe you should name the babe, Liberal Fascist.

TLB

Well, I know some family members who would consider that appropriate.

Maybe we'll name it Googlebomb!

Jennifer

Googlebomb is da bomb!

Jane

Seven.

I was amazed it never actually caught on as a result of Seinfeld.


Snag

My three children are named Hellspawn, Demonseed, and Trenchfoot. Feel free to steal any of them. The names or the kids.

TLB

Can we take Demonseed, Snag? The kid AND the name?

Those names say more about you than the kids.

Amie

Considering the recent musings on here, I think you should go with Brando. Well, that or Ziploc Taco. Also an excellent, character-giving name.

fish

Ridley?

I named my kids Shut Up
and
Get Me a Beer. I love it when they get together.

Kelly

Brian recommends "Dikfer" and "Abcde" (pronounced "AB-sid-a"). We just want your cat.

Snag

Don't forget, I followed the American Indian tradition of not naming them until their personalities were established.

Noelle

Perhaps you should make the child go through a series of trials to earn his or her name.

Barring that, just chose something that's easy to spell. Jill is good that way. Hard to mess up that one!

Motel Manager

I agree with Jane: I always liked Seven and Soda from that Seinfeld episode.

B. and I always wondered whether there were certain names you would not be allowed to name your child - e.g., Unwanted, Mistake, Bastard, Motherfucker, etc.

Brando

I like Bastard Motherfucker.

I would also love to name the child Dr. Pepper and then encourage s/he to become an actual doctor: "Dr. Dr. Pepper I presume?"

Pinko Punko

Bedazzler, Wearer of Chunderoos

TLB

Awesome suggestions, everyone. Now I have things that will potentially turn my mother-in-law's hair white!

Susan

My dad named my sister and I with "S" names to honor my mother whose name is Sun. He also gave us the same initials SRP and the same amount of syllables which was (apparently) a coincidence. I think he thought about it overmuch.

Adorable Girlfriend

Snag or Billy Pilgrim.

Let me think about this:

The Pocket Rocket

or

The Hulk (if it's a boy)

Seriously:

Avery for a girl
Joshua for a boy

Chuckles

AG's serious suggestions are terrible. Every other effing kid out there is named Joshua and Avery is a dude's name.

Chundermuffin has a classic ring to it.

Loafnozzle works.

Branmuffin has a paternal edge.

Glennbecky is a bit more maternally inclined.

Pinko Punko

A vote for Glennbecky, and that AG's suggestions are terrible.

Shannon

Go with the famous photographer theme:

Dorothea for a girl
Ansel for a boy

Though I do kinda like Demonseed, and Glennbecky is awful catchy.

Grendel

Tickles
The Black Pope
Munch
Ratface
Burrito
Waldorf von Himmel
Knobby

I always liked Bill Cosby's choices: Jesus Christ and Dammit
