You mean Karma? Or should we name her Qahrma?
Well, here goes the naming story again. It appears to me that parents are trying to outdo every other set of parents by naming their child the same way God makes snowflakes---no two alike. What the parents forget about is that a name is not a style of clothing. A name is usually in place on a life sentence. A name is an important piece of equipment in a person's life. Perhaps this is a new social paradigm, that one is not supposed to refer to history when naming a child, and so, anything goes. Well, I guess I need to be put out to pasture on the subject, but I like to understand a person's name. It needs to come forth on an historical basis, not from costume jewelry or a random computer generator. It seems this will go on until the idea of familiar names is totally rejected. In the meantime, MY name has been rendered unique by all of this name frenzy.I haven't seen even one baby in recent years who has been given my very, very, VERY common name--or, at least it used to be common,. I have had two people ask me to spell it! Hint: it is the name of one of the Christian Apostles.
I live in western Pennsylvania and when I first got my license back in.. 1994 I was sent to a Thrift Drug store in a small town about 1/2 hour east of Penn State University. I still to this day cannot believe what one customer did to her children. The first childs name was NITTANY and the second was LIONS the name of PSU's football team. No lie the welfare ins cards had it right on there.
I had a 1 year old girl come in with her mother not to long ago named Beloved N. Sheets. Quite disturbing. Hopefully the child will be able to rise above her name (and parents) and legally change ASAP.
I know a kid named Pepsi Cola Fritos **ENTER LAST NAME**I shit you not, it's awesome.
I once knew a young set of twins whose mother named them Ernestasio and Earnestasio. Yup, pronounced the same. Somebody at the hospital should have slapped her.
My husband used to work for a company that sold software to the State of Alabama (Dept of Health). While setting up the system onsite, one of the techs came across 2 siblings, whose names were pronounced La Mon Juh Low and Oh Ron Juh Low... spelling, you ask?LEMONJELLOORANGEJELLOI can't make this stuff up, I swear!
I promise that I will never name a child after a food substance, corporate brand, vehicle, or alcoholic beverage. I prefer to name my kids after dead warlords. Nobody is gonna f*ck with Caesar Genghis Tasty!
I never expected to see so many odd names here in White Bread, WI, but you'd be suprised what ends up in our nursery and NICU. At one point all the NICU kids were names after locations or occupations (ie, Boston, London, Brooklyn, Paris, Ocean, Miller, Fisher, Carpenter). At the moment we have a young gentleman named LayJay. Seriously. LayJay. A co-worker of mine has 4 children named Denim, Blue Jean, Corduroy, and Cashmere. No. 5 is on the way, to be named Cardigan. We actually had a contest in the pharmacy to come up with something other than Cardigan in the fabric family but she was unmoved.
Actually, I do know a couple who named their daughter Karma! I can just envision her acting up in the grocery store and hearing mom yell "Bad Karma!"
My favorites came around back when Dallas, or maybe Falcon Crest was on TV in primetime and one of the characters was named Fallon. Pretty soon, the new babies in the horspiddle where I was the 3rd shift RPh, started getting names sounding like or related to Fallon. The Ph spellings started pretty soon and many folks were flirting with actually being named after Male Anatomy. Nobody actually came up with Phallus, but they were trying.
Big N Tasty, you know Caesar is still a food substance!!"Bad karma!" love it!!!
