Weird names

There is lady I see on local TV from time to time and I just wonder what her parents were thinking when they named her VAJOYA? Is that a common name? I don't think I have ever heard of it before.

I think what happened is: when the baby was born, the dad (a sheltered chap) was watching and said Ohmigod, it's coming out of her vajayjay; and by a series of mad coincidences and equally mad misunderstandings, she ended up with the name Vajoya.

According to a TV show, there is a kid getting about whose name is pronounced Absidee ... but spelled Abcde.

Child abuse, this is.

That's as bad as Female, pronounced f'mall-ay.
My sis had a client named Placenta. And I've run across several LaTrina's..

Probably suited her better than Prudence or Charity.

I deal with a lot of stupid names. The last one that gave me pause was so stupid I had to check the insurance company's website to make sure that there were really TWO apostrophes involved.

Unfortunately the name is sufficiently distinctive that I am not able to reproduce it here. But the pattern was something like ... Shaw'wannaL'yesha. Yes, with a capital letter where it didn't belong, too.

Had to reduce the font size on the chart label to make it fit, and then just barely.

Rivaled only by the kid whose first name was that of a clothing designer, like TommyHilfiger Lefkowitz. Except it was more absurd that that.

I wonder if she is a descendant of LaDiDa?

My ex had a cleaning woman and SHE had a daughter named Linoleum.

I wanted to name our youngest "Qwerty" because it's easy to type.

It's not just a cultural thing. Look at Bob Geldof's kids' names: Fifi Trixibelle , Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof, and Little Pixie. And what's with all the trendy suburban non-name names like Hunter, Shelby, Dakota, Madison, Brooklyn, etc? Ok, so they are actual words, but they're no more a name than Linoleum is.

I hope cooler heads prevailed.

Mr. Geldof demonstrates how disadvantageous a disadvantageous given name can be.

I am waiting for the eventual manifestation of a little urban girl named -- Apostrophe. Even if her daddy goes around saying, "Yep, she was about that big when, etc."

"Homegrown country names," however pleasant the sounds strung together may be, do not suit my sense of the fitness of things. Every given name out there at least at one time actually meant something. Miscellaneous syllables do not.

Except maybe as and for Far Eastern car models. Being inanimate, they can't be hurt by it.
