A CU, Where Regs Don't Apply
A good friend is trying to come up with names for her twin boys on the way in a couple months. She's really pushing for Bruce and Wayne, but I don't think that's going to happen.

"Danger" has been thrown out for the middle name for both!

Guy I knew in college had the last name Die, he's a dentist now, Dr. Die.

Grew up with a kid named Anil Joy. None of us thought anything about it until junior high. Then the teasing never ceased. Poor guy.

Really? If SHE is pushing for it, you'd think a husband would go for it. After all, you're not going to be calling him Bruce Wayne, you'll be calling one Bruce and the other Wayne... it's all good smile

as a teller, we had to check the obits everyday just in case - I came across a Margherita Martini.

a "crunchy" friend of mine named her daughter Kairi Rain.

a co-worker's husband is a teacher. He's had a kid named Myson (pronounced My Son) and his younger brother Itsaboy.

when i was in high school i wanted to name my daughter Midnight Pearl. Thankfully when i actually got pregnant, my boyfriend talked me out of it.

crunchy

Adjective. Used to describe persons who have adjusted or altered their lifestyle for environmental reasons. Crunchy persons tend to be politically strongly left-leaning and may be additionally but not exclusively categorized as vegetarians, vegans, eco-tarians, conservationists, environmentalists, neo-hippies, tree huggers, nature enthusiasts, etc.

Also used to describe establishments where alternative foods and products are sold, i.e. natural food stores.

---------------------------------------

I would add that there is nothing wrong with being environmentally aware, or having a healthy lifestyle- IMHO, "crunchy" people take it to the extreme- No dyes, only wooden toys, etc

I have run across a Candy Kane and a Forrest Green over the course of my life.

A guy I knew with the last name "Key" always joked that he was going to name his first daughter Dawn.

I'm aware of a person who changed their middle name to "Kills" and last name to "Enemies".

She's a biker, but not overly intimidating otherwise.

My maiden name was Pitt. LOTS of jokes about that one.

Used to work with a woman who's daughter went to school with a boy named DeCorate - although pronounced differently than decorate.
