Future names

As Juliet once said of Romeo:

What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;

But some names are sweeter than others… And these people might well agree with me!

Urhines Kendall Icy Eight Special K. (That’s pronounced Your Highness.) Wait a minute – I though I was Your Highness! OK – I’ll make do with Your Majesty…

GoldenPalaceDotCom Silverman. The Internet casino GoldenPalace.com paid $15,000 to the parents for naming their child this as part of the casino’s publicity stunt.

Batman Bin Suparman. Already blessed with the surname of a superhero, this young Javanese man also has a superhero’s first name. (I actually think it’s kind of cool… but I’m weird that way.)

I like unusual names – just ask my kids! In fact, I have three names and a double-barrelled surname so that my signature can’t fit onto one line…

In the future, though, I think we may well see a whole spate of new names.

  1. This could well extend into the names of pop and rock groups in the future too. Imagine these: Obamarama, The Barack Street Boys, Barack Sabbath – the list is endless!! 😉


  2. try living in DK where if you have a baby, the name has to be on the APPROVED REGISTRY before you can give it to the baby……
    All those fancy names that moms on some really strong drugs give their new babies in America would never fly here! LOL


  3. Kinda hard to know what to write here, my right wing side wants to shout, what idiot gives their beloved child a weird name like Batman or a dessert like Apple Pie or the mulitple other names we could come up with…the list is endless..on the other hand I appreciate uniqueness…..to a degree…

    We tried to pick names for our kids that sounded good and similar in Norwegian and English…my only regret is never being able to have a son named Jack. I just LOVE that name but was NEVER going to have a son people would call YACK (here in Norway)- just wasn’t going to happen…


  4. I like a good unusual name too- hey there’s a song on Youtube called “there’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama”-apparently his maternal great-grandfather (or something) was from Ireland. So I guess it should be O’Bama(!)


  5. Hi Lady Fi, in answer to your question on my blog, if you feel the latest entry is something for your blog carnival, by all means use it with my permission….do I have to do something??


  6. That’s the second Obama joke I have seen today!! And i was wondering how soon until they started popping up.
    I must admit I’m not into fancy names for children, it must make their school years tough and how annoying when it’s mis-spelt. But then again, kids can tease you about anything anyway. I think mother of the cousins is glad her middle name was changed from ,I think it was going to be Prudence!!
