we had twins a few years ago. Orangejello,(orangello) and Yellowjello(ya-longello) of course it spelled orange and yellow jello..
And maybe we shouldn't be using peoples last names without their consent?

I myself have a unique name and I didn't meet anyone with the same first name until I was 30. Children will be teased about something during their lifetime whether it be their name, their hair, their clothes, the shape of their eyes (this happened to me), etc.I haven't read anywhere close to this whole thread yet, but something worries me about it: I wonder what it would be like to have the child whose name is posted here as a joke (or, the parents who named that child) see that message? Certainly the parents could have avoided the teasing by choosing another name, but what about the child?
I realize a name itself isn't confidential (hey, they were born, right? no secrets violated there) but I'd hate to have them see the mocking in print this way. Just my humble opinion.
I thoroughly enjoy reading these posts, so keep them coming.
Oh and in case your wondering no I don't have the jello kids!

I know a family who named their son Tom. Not bad, but their last name is Sawyer!
There was a baby in the daycare I used to work in whose name was Jerome...only they pronounced it like "Jeremy". "Jer-o-me". I guess phonetically it makes sense but boy... that poor kid probably had/has to explain what his name 'really' is all the time!
Also, my friends niece is April Rayne.
To each his/her own I guess!

Her first daughter was named Regina (rah-gee-na)
Well when she wrote out the name for her new baby girl... yup...
So the birth certificate lady said, "Oh, how do you pronounce that?"...
I hope she gets a nick-name.

Thank goodness my mom talked him out of that.
I went to school with a girl whose name was Minka...not to bad, but strange.
Also, a friend of mine named her son Ethan Allen (like the furniture).
