Parents, Drug Use, and Wacky Names

After reading these items (New Study: Bad Baby Names Ruin Lives and Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop) and hearing about Beyonce’s baby’s name (Blue Ivy), I was inspired to make a post about names. Specifically, the weird, funny, or my-parents-must-have-been-high-when-they-named-me names.

I’m trying to understand the thought process behind choosing a name for your child(ren). And I’ve come to the conclusion that people who choose wacky names must be under the influence of some sort of substance. That’s because no one in their right mind would name their children anything weird. If they had any sense at all, they would realize that a ridiculous name would set the child up to be teased and not be taken seriously. Who wants that for their children?

Well, apparently some celebrities do. I guess celebrity children never really get to live a normal life, so might as well have a non-normal name to go with it. In the image below are real names of some celebrity children (taken from here).
