    Many of those names seem perfectly reasonable to me (Fifi-Trixibelle is a little different, though....)

    Peaches Honeyblossom and Little Pixie are kind of awful. And as much as I am a Bono fan, saddling a kid with Elijah Bob Patricus Guggi Q seems a bit much.

    The crazy names, to me, just speak volumes about the ego of the parents. Yes, you do get to name the child. But that child has to grow up and live with that name.

    Moxie Crimefighter ?
    Pilot Inspektor?
    Moon Unit?

    I have to show these to my husband! He thinks I am a little "out there" with my choice of names!

    Oh yeah, those and CGE's example are pretty out there. But Rowan Francis or Elijah Blue or Lourdes Maria don't seem so bad.

    Zowie Bowie? That poor kid.

    Also, when I think of "Satchel," I think of the dog in the "Get Fuzzy" comic strip.

    For some reason, Jason Lee gets really offended in interviews when he discusses reactions to Pilot Inspektor's name. Yes, it's not nice to make fun of the kid's name, but really, what did you expect?

    And Diva Muffin? Moon Unit? Does Frank Zappa hate children or something?

    heehee

    my favorite is zephyr! What will that kid's nickname be? Zeph? Er? Zephy?

    Hey, you want to give your baby an ultra uhriguhnull name, be prepared. If HE thinks HE'S getting crap, wait till the poor kid starts school.

    "Diva Muffin" and "Moon Unit"? Then again, this was Zappa...

    thanks for the list, it was both enlightening and entertaining! :D
    3B Corkscrew... I'm back on the boards now! Just got The Big Chop on Monday, pics coming soon.

    I agree with Amneris ( :shock: :wink: ). SOme of the names are crazy, but some are reasonable. Seems like anything *gasp* foreign-sounding made the list. Cause everyone should be named Timmy and Sally.

    I wonder if Rachel Griffiiths' kid Banjo is named after Banjo Paterson, the Australian poet.
    Also, I bet Sting's daughter Fuschia was named after a character from the Gormenghast books, I read somewhere that Sting once owned the rights to the books.

    So yeah, some of those names are "look at me I'm an attention whore" but I am sure lots of them are references that are meaningful to the parents but that we might not get.
    To Trenell, MizKerri and geeky:
    I pray none of you ever has to live in a communist state.

    Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.

    I agree that some of the names aren't bad at all. I personally liked: Lyric, Phoenix, Sage, Ryder, Hazel, Willow, and Scout. I think those are cute!
