Oh, Baby!

I’ve decided to share one of my favorite past-times with you.  As you know, I’ve been trapped in East Tennessee, and the things that I love have been overshadowed by things that drive me crazy.  One of my rip-roaring activities here is reading the birth announcements.  Yes, I know…such is the exciting life of this girl…

So, I decided to start making a list of the WORST baby names.  Mainly because it’s amusing, but also because it’s a warning to Kindergarten teachers:  Five years from now, you are going to have a hard time explaining why these names don’t follow phonetic rules.

  • Yawn–because your child is such a bore.  Or maybe this was the first thing he did when you saw him.  Let’s be glad that he didn’t poop or cry.  That would definitely make this list too!
  • Ma’Blessan–No joke.  I am assuming this is a form of “My Blessing”
  • Nevaeh–Every single week someone names their child this.  EVERY week.  We know it is heaven spelled backwards.  Still…
  • De’Refla-Mae–My friend pointed out that the first part of this name is “Alfred” spelled backwards.  d-i-p-u-t-s.  This one really takes the prize.

Tune in next week for another exciting edition of The Worst Baby Names!
