Baby Names You Should Never Use

Baby Names You Should Never Use. Ever!
Some things are just too cruel to inflict on anyone, especially when that someone is a sweet new baby. An archive assistant at Cornwall County Record Office in England may have done us all a great favor by revealing the odd, real-life names she have found in census, birth, death and marriage records dating back to the 16th century, reports The Associated Press.

Helpfully, the Cornwall County Record Office has published the list--1,000 in all. "My all-time favorites are Abraham Thunderwolff and Freke Dorothy Fluck Lane," the aforementioned archivist, Rene Jackaman, told AP. Others include the following from the Hornblower family: Horatio, Azubia, Constantia, Jecoliah, Jedidah, Jerusha and Erastus.

Here are more. Remember, they're all real names:

Boadicea Basher
Philadelphia Bunnyface
Faithful thingy
Susan Booze
Elizabeth Disco
Edward Evil
Fozzitt Bonds
Truth Bullock
Charity Chilly
Gentle Fudge
Obedience Ginger
Offspring Gurney
Levi Jeans

Imagine receiving an invitation to these weddings:

Nicholas Bone and Priscilla Skin were joined in wedlock in 1636.
Charles Swine and Jane Ham wed in 1711.
John Mutton and Ann Veale married in 1791.
Richard Dinner and Mary Cook said "I do" in 1802.

Other funny names:

I have a friend whose married name is now
Holly Wood

(Holly is short for the English name Holliday)


I also met a teacher who told me she had a student named
Cash Money

(Pronounced - Cajz (like the word "Cas"ual) Moe-Nay)
She could not believe the kid's mom named her that!

Another friend who is an obstetrics nurse told me about a mom thought the word "
Vagina
" sounded like a good name for her new baby.
Luckily the nurses talked the mom out of it.

If you say it right, it sounds quite a lot like "Virginia".  I think the proper pronunciation of that girl's name would be "Vuh-GINN-uh".  I can see the Blax-ploitation movie trailer now......"Vagina Jones"   Wink

Her brother's name is probably thingy (pronounced "Pennis").
