¿Se quieren reir?

Mi amigo Peter me mandó una página con un fabuloso compendio de discusiones sobre nombres de bebés. Está en inglés. Se trata de una enorme fuente de entretenimiento, siempre y cuando uno no se ponga a pensar en los procesos mentales que orillan a tantos padres a cometer semejantes crímenes contra sus retoños. Les dejo la liga a mis post previos que trataron el mismo tema, para que quede claro que soy muy morbosa con el tema. Apenas llevo leidas las dos primeras partes y he llorado de la risa un par de veces.

Encima de todo, el título me recordó la maravillosa canción de Chris Isaak que se llama parecido. Hoy añadí la canción a mi iTunes.


Actualización: he seguido leyendo más de esa página y aqui les copio ejemplos muy simpáticos

Andreana Calida [last name]
Damita Nicole [last name]
Adoncia Noella [last name]
Kamaria May [last name]
Elliot Ness [last name]

In order: An earthquake fault, a cheesy snack chip, a giant snake, a fried octopus appetizer and an untouchable are not things to name your child after.

I've suggested to my sister that she name her little girl to be - Manchester. She's not sure about it but she's considering. What do you think?

Clever. Like being named Pittsburg or Schenectady. Kid'll grow up to be beaten to death by Liverpool fans.

I have 2 girls...Ashlyn Marie and Carrington Alisa. I chose to give my daughters unusual names...but not unusual enough to be made fun of.

Not unless the younger one runs into a vicious gang of Lytton Strachey readers.

I will name baby#3 Killian(girl) or Tristan(boy).

Hope he sings in German and dates a girl named Isolde. And that the girl's middle name is Irish and her last name is Red! That's rock! Wooo!

We have a 4 year old girl named Luna & I'm 8 months pregnant now from a boy.

(I should think so!)

We were thinking about : Lucca (He lives on the second floor.)
Could someone suggest us some other special names for a boy please...

Sure! Triste! Firenze! Roma! Venezia! Vespa! Con Carne! Bicicletta! Amontillado! Vente-uno! Coloseo! Proscutto! Cavalleria Rusticana! Parmagiana! Ponte Veccio! Stronzo! Espresso! Dean Martin!

Not pregnant yet but working on it!! Carlos Arturo to make Jr. Although I don't like Arturo(North American tongue can't prononuce)

Yeah, stupid Mexico, sitting there in North America not being able to pronounce Arturo.


I really like Ireland as a mn. It sounds sooo cute. I like McCarthy for a boy too.

It's always a good idea to name a kid after a fascist drunk. How 'bout Franco or Mussolini? Ivan Terribyl?

You know, I'm really starting to think these folks think words are just a series of sounds bereft of meaning

I've seen that website before but revisiting has me literally laughing out loud again. Oh my goodness, the extraneous Ns and Ys... If you are interested in the sociological trends in names, this woman's blog is really interesting and she has some very cool data visualization on her site.
