I think we can agree the darn jello names are bogus!

Why, you ask? Because my married name is "Peters" - hmm, what do you think he would be called? I was really big when I carried my boys and each time I was pregnant, my husband would tell people that I was having twin boys and we were naming them "Richard" and "Rodney" (Dick and Rod) - I could have killed him when I found out he was doing that - he never did it in my hearing............
We stopped at two kids and he told people that's because he told me if I got pregnant again and had a daughter, we had to name her "Sofonda" or "Sharon" and I pitched a fit and refused to get pregnant again..........(so not true..)
He's actually an awesome husband and dad (the kids prefer him to me - I was just the pod that let them grow so they could come to life and worship their father) but he sure was a pistol when I was pregnant...........:uhoh21: :uhoh21:

Dec 3, '05Occupation: Student/Stay at home mom Joined: Dec '05; Posts: 28; Likes: 1My sister in-law named her daughter Jade Jewel not so strange but sounds stripperish. When I was little my older brother had a kid on his soccer team named CRITTER They would cheer for him from the side line and the other parent's would be giving each other the, is that his name look and sure enough it was. But the best was when I was having my daughter 2 yrs ago. My husband, my mom, and friend went to the nursery to look at the baby's and there he was this bundle of joy KING TEDDY BEAR.... Now why on earth would you name your child that ??? I still wonder how KING TEDDY BEAR is doing....
Dec 3, '05Occupation: Student/Stay at home mom Joined: Dec '05; Posts: 28; Likes: 1Just remembered a couple more my daughter was in daycare with girl named Amica mouse (mickey mouse) I went to school with a girl named Nonyalum ( we called her no yay). My mother had a still born sister named Nora not to wierd but I knew twin girls named Nevah and Norah. And my fathers name is James, my mothers name is Julie, my brothers name is James (not a Jr. though he goes by Jimmy), my other brothers name is Jeffrey (goes by Jeff), I guess they ran out of J's when it came to me I am Audrey. I have never really liked my name but it has a story behind it. I was named after my fathers sister Audrey who was also born on November 8th and had red hair just like me, but she died of cancer before I was born. Shouldn't that be concidered bad luck or something???

Dec 12, '05Joined: Dec '05; Posts: 25Let's see ... one of my mother's cousins is named Starr Bright (her married name).
I once met a white, blonde-as-a-barbie woman named Carlos. Seriously.
And, I admit it, I've always loved the name Fairlight. It's from a book I once read (Christy), and I've always thought it sounds very delicate and feminine.
