Awful Names for Children

http://teachersparadise.blogspot.com/2006/06/stupid-kid-names.html

The above website has a list of bizarre names of students that teachers have had in their classrooms. My teacher friend Ann once had a student named "Deceased"! The idiot mother heard the word used in the hospital and thought it "sounded pretty".

Who is going to take seriously anyone with these contrived names? When they become adults, a job candidate named Sarah is certainly going to be considered more highly than a candidate named Deceased, that's for sure. What on earth are their parents thinking when they name their kids Day'quandray and Cincere? Names like these will be misspelled and mispronounced their entire lives.

(At least we can spell and pronounce Moon Unit!)
