Baby names, part III

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know I have an interest in bad baby names. has posted some new lists of names for your consideration. These are all real names registered with the census bureau.

Trouble picking a name? Why don't you try some diseases? Growing a baby is a bit similar to growing a parasite/harboring a disease in that it steals all your food and zaps your energy.

Fever Bender
Leper Priest
Cholera Priest
Rubella Graves
Typhus Black
Hysteria Johnson
Emma Royd
Kathryn E. Coli
Mumps Sykes

Are those not bad enough for your sweet little one? Try naming him/her after a sin.

Lust Garten
Greed Sister Mancini
Sloth Washton
Wrath Gordon
Envy Burger
Pride Saint
Greed McGreaw
Lust T. Castle

Okay, okay. You have higher aspirations for little darling. Maybe growing up you always wanted to be a doctor, but just never got around to it. How about projecting your goals upon your newest addition. It's a guarantee that he/she will be referred to as Dr. later in life.

Cook Cook
Governor Bush
Lawyer Low
Doctor Love
Teacher Blackbear
Judge Savage
Editor Honeycutt
Mayor Bland
Sales O. Justice
Gamble Moore

I found an article on BBC News website related to the bad baby names found in Britain. Here is a sample they provided. . .

Paige Turner
Stan Still
Rose Bush
Pearl Button
Jo King
Barry Cade
Carrie Oakey
Priti Manic
Tim Burr

That's all the time I have for this nonsense tonight.
