I named my first son MySpace. He get beaten-up everyday on the playground.

I wanted to nickname our firstborn after one of my vendors at work. My wife, Sears, didn't like the idea.

Notice how "Bing" hasn't made the list yet.

ControlAltDelete is another popular name.

What's wrong with that?

I named my first son IBM. He was impossible to toilet-train.

I'm of a hope that our next g-kid might be blesses with the moniker of "Escape" ...

Vista flunked kindergarten. "That kid's just slow", said head teacher.

I think a lot of these articles were prompted by the (possibly apocryphal) story of the woman who supposedly named her kid "Hashtag" last week.

But when you're upset at your phone, don't you just want to say,"Siri, go to your room!"?

I don't see what the big deal is. Nobody hassles me over my name.

I named my last kid "Quits".

I suppose those are better than "Aquanet" (yes, the cheap hairspray), which I saw twice in birth announcements at the newspaper I used to work for.

I think this could be filed under "Is our children learning?"


I told the nurse we were calling our son rm -rf *, and when she typed it, the whole hospital shut down.

A Chinese computer company called " Hei Yu " would start out with great name recognition.

XKCD is on the case.

A co-worker's husband wanted to call their first daughter Polly Esther. Their last name was Codell.

What ever happened to good old names like Dopey, Sneezy and Grumpy?

Wait till they grow up and find out they cant use their own names on twitter.

I think I'm carbon-dating myself here, but it occurs to me that you should actually name your second child rm -rf * and the first born should be called su root.
