Sorry, again

I've been neglecting this bad boy for a while now, sorry!

I've been noticing lately that people seem to forget that they are indeed naming PEOPLE, not babies. I wonder if people realize that these babies grow up and eventually become adults and most likely won't appreciate some of the stupid, misspelled shenanigans that their parents have come up with. When these babies become adults, they will most likely want a job - guess what? I can not look a resume in the face and be serious with something like McKaiden staring back at me, it's just not possible. These children DO have to lead productive lives one day.

Remember this when naming your child.

It's not something to be taken lightly.


  1. I agree! That's why we're going with Gabriel. Don't want him having to spell something his entire life or getting laughed at. :)

  2. Yup. I just saw a little girl named Mycalyn. I kept thinking 'She's going to be a 60-year-old woman someday, and that name is going to seem even more ridiculous then than it does now.'
