Also...twins Lindon and Landon. Kemariastorie, Jenayanalies (anyone notice the word anal in the middle of this one?? kindergarten is going to be a nightmare and their names will never fit on those applications with the blocks where you fill in letters)

Also, I love the name Micah but I cant help but think of the acronym for Mentally Ill Chemical Abusers.

Here are a few names of children they have had in class. Shithead, twins Syphyllis and Gonorrhea. Another friends daughter's college roommate was Raspberry and her sister's name was Snowflake.

We've had lots of Nevaehs and Paytons and Kaydens, but the weirdest name I can think of is actually one my well-meaning friends were going to give their daughter. They were looking for 'different' names for a long time, and had settled on Candida!
I only had the heart to tell them it was a kind of yeast, I couldn't tell them what candida is best known for... yikes!

The baby's last name is Tupper. Maybe he will grow up to invent a new piece of Tupperware--the map keeper. That way his older brother can find his way Homer.
Stop me before I hurt myself.
