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!
