(re)views as a parent...

Because life as a father is funny; and weird.

It is just a name, right?

So my earlier post talked about respecting your kids, and their future, by not giving them really weird names. It was not meant to say don’t name you kid something unique, but think about how it may impact their future. While most people were in agreement, even those that weren’t knew someone that had a really strange name. 

Here are a few of the names that were shared:

  • Pink (for a boy)
  • Rusty Nail
  • Shamu Love
  • Blaze Cane Fisher
  • Imunique
  • and of course Blade and Tiara

So my point really is naming your kid ‘Rusty Nail’ or ‘Shamu Love’ may present a few unnecessary barriers for them. Unless they change their name.

This also got me curious for more weird names. What were some of the weird names of people you knew, or knew of?
