What ever happened to names like Mary or Jane...?

NZ judge backs girl over 'embarrassing' name

This poor little 9 year-old's moron parents named her "Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii".

I am seriously having a hard time getting my head around this. Whatever happened to names like Mary, or Ann, or Jane? Seriously, folks, WHAT THE FUCK is wrong with people? If you're going to give your kid a goofy name you may as well just name them "Kick my ass and take my lunch money and while you're at it can you please give me an atomic wedgie everyday for the remainder of my life".

My mother-in-law and sister-in-law are both nurses that work in pediatrics and you should hear the shit that people are naming their kids these days.

Examples...

Single mother whose last name is Man. Had twin girls and named them Idonwanna and Idonneeda...

Parents from South East Asia with the last name of Dong insisted on naming their new baby boy Harry... even after having it explained to them what his name would mean to other children and that he would likely get picked on everyday.

A mother, late in her pregnancy went to go to the bathroom and when her baby, in her words "fell out", she exclaimed, "IT A MIRACLE!"... She named her new baby girl Amiracle.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I'm all for giving your child an exotic name, but COME ON! These people are just making shit up!

It's totally different if it's a real name, fits with your last name and/or reflects your heritage. For example I have two girls, Sophia and Molly. One reflects our Mediterranean lineage and the other represents our Irish lineage. My wife and I have decided that if we have another girl we'll likely be naming her something French in origin. Not that the names we ultimately chose were terribly odd, but I can tell you that we went through some strange ones getting to our final choices. I did have one rule when picking out names... If I could find a way to make fun of it within 5 minutes then we ruled it out. If it takes me 5 minutes, it will probably take some mean little brat about 30 seconds.
