    RESPECT NAMES!!! I dont know maybe people might be thinking the name you gave your KID is stupid. DO you want that being the talk on the web? If not, then stop insulting these wonderful parents. YOu have no right to do this and you should be given respect. Just to give you a little heads up, you can get fired for insulting a name given to a parents baby. So, it's not going to be funny if you get fired. SO STOP IT!!

    This is almost that same thing you posted a few days ago, so here is the same answer you got back then. We are not insulting people. We are not telling parents the name they gave their child is stupid. No one is saying anything to the parents or the children. So this threat that we could be fired is pointless.

    If you find this thread upsetting, please, stop reading it.

    She did inform some of the inqusitive folk - "The dash ain't silent!"

    Too bad she wasn't - silent, that is........

    "...wonderful parents..." ????????? That's the most puzzling part of your statement, actually......time to cash yourself a "reality check."

    When I was in nursing school, I was working in an OB dept. My patient who was pregnant said that she was naming her baby "Kflitawna".... I think that's the most unusual name I've heard!
