Tobyjoe’s coworker, Benjamin, has suggested that we name our baby a name he’s been trying to get someone to use for years. And for the life of me I cannot figure out why no one has snatched it up. I like what it says about a person but I do wonder if he or she will get confused when he or she heads to college.
Added to the list of names as of February 16th, 2007:
At least we’re not going to choose something really weird. For example, I read on Overheard in the Office recently that a woman named her daughter Placenta after hearing it at the hospital and announcing to the staff, “Oh my goodness! What a beautiful name!” Urban Myth! Somehow, I thought so. This further feeds my cynicism when it comes to both Overheard in New York and Overheard in the Office.
What are the weirdest names you’ve ever heard of? I once worked with a guy named Masterful.
