    Adult women named AHN-drea. Sure, a 20-year old theater major can call herself AHN-drea, but by the time you get a real job it's time to get over yourself and pronounce your name like everyone else.

    There's a young child in my universe named "Canyon". I was thinking, "your sister isn't named 'Gulch', is she?"

    I had a thing with a girl who had the same name as my grandmother, which made it weird. Not weird enough not to have a thing with her, but still weird.

    I work for a school district so I get to hear a lot of goofy names:

    Destinee
    Jaython
    Feather
    Envy
    Aaaand-
    Intellegence
    Yup, Intellegence Guererro

    These people shouldn't be allowed to have kids.
    But I also recently heard of these:

    L-a (Ladasha)
    Sssst (Forest)
    Jkmn (almost alphabetical except no L, thus Noel)

    Ashley, Tiffany, Brittany, Chad, Trevor, Chase, Bradley, etc. Typical '80s yuppy-child names.

    I also think first-last name combinations that consist of what would normally be two first names sound retarded. "Matt Damon," for instance...or the double whammy with this and the above: "Trevor Noah."

    The other day, I came across an idiotic sounding name that consisted of two normally-last-names, but unfortunately, I forgot what it was.

    Which reminds me-I was helping a pregnant lady into a wheelchair and out of nowhere she starts yelling at the top of her lungs words like "Can't!...Won't!...Shouldn't!...Couldn't!..."

    Puzzled, I look at the Doctor.

    "They're only contractions" he said.

    In school we submitted our written exams with assumed names, supposedly to reduce favoritism by exam graders.

    Every time I used Carl or Kurt, I got an A or A+. So, no complaints from me.

    The names don't bother me, the attitude you get when you mispronounce some of these names that you have never seen/heard before is what annoys me.

    I was once at a food market (on Granville Island in Vancouver) where I overheard a woman talking to her child in a stroller: "Look, Ruskin, they have grain bowls! Would you like a grain bowl?" Something tells me Ruskin only gets to eat grain bowls, and that name is seared into my memory.

    Chad.

    I've never met a Chad that I could stand.

    What are you waiting for? Don't disappoint us all :eek:)

    I went to high school with a girl whose parents had the bad sense to give her the name Dorkus. It's a biblical name, but why not Ruth or Sarah or Mary, or even Jezebel? She's the only person I've ever known for whom I've felt sorry just on the basis of their name.
