Given the popularity of my last post about baby names, I thought I’d do another one.
If you spend enough time in a newborn nursery, you’ll get to see some real doozies when parents name their kids. I’ve seen kids named after sports networks, for example. But one name will always stand out in my memory.
Sadly, HIPAA prevents me from just blurting it out. Forgive me for unavoidable obliqueness. The parents of this child were big fans of classic rock, and wanted to reflect that love in the name of their child. They therefore chose as her name the name of one of rock’s greatest groups, a legendary band of undeniable talent.
Unfortunately, the name they selected for their newborn little girl is also a synonym for “blimp.” As I reflected at the time, let us pray that the gods are kind, and she ends up being a naturally thin child.
It was easily the worst name I have personally witnessed for a child. And so, gentle readers, I give you this week’s Stupid Tuesday Question — what is the absolute worst rock band name to pick for a child?
