I'm looking at baby pages and birth anouncements and I'm having trouble imagining what some of these parents were thinking when they named their babies.
First up, we have a little girl named 'Royale'. The first thing that comes to my mind is the Belgian cheeseburger a la Pulp Fiction....
Next, 'Elighcia'. I understand that it's probably pronounced 'Ell-ee-sha', but that's going to be incredibly difficult for a child (or anyone else) to spell when they get older.
'Xhandria' is an unusual name. I wonder if it's pronounced 'Zan-dree-ah' or 'Ex-an-dree-ah'?
'Kai'viaun' is next on the list. I have no idea how it's pronounced, and I wish that people would stop putting random letters and apostrophes together and saying that they're a name. They're not.
Some parents actually named their little boy 'Lucifer'. Really. What happens if he grows up and decided that fundamental christianity is the right path for him?
I have no idea where this idea for a name came from and I really don't care to know: 'Riggens', and it's a girl. What the heck!?
Last but by no means least, 'Iwoblue', and again it's a little girl. How is it pronounced, I wonder? What does it mean - if it means anything at all?
I'm thinking that my almost naming my daughter 'Nirvana' wasn't so silly afterall....
