TheBabyWebsite.com has released what are considered to be Britain’s most unfortunate baby names. Seymour Butts and Ivana Tinkle aren’t on the list, but some of the names include Mary Christmas, Paige Turner, and Doug Hole. Isn’t this a form of child abuse? Anyway, this got the Frisky girls and I talking about what we’d do if a we were interested in or were dating had an unusual or horrible name.

When I was a lot, lot younger, I used to think I would make my husband take my name; My dad would say, “Good luck finding a guy who’s willing to give up his last name!” I don’t feel that way anymore, but I don’t think there’s a good solution.

Dogs are becoming such a big part of people’s lives that once-popular names for pets (Spot, for example) have been abandoned in favor of more human names, at least when it comes to female dog names.

The top 10 male dog names, on the other hand, includes names that I wouldn’t consider naming a son, i.e., Buddy, Rocky, and Buster. My dog’s name is Guinness (that’s him in the photo), which is certainly not a human name. With the female dog names, I kind of wonder whether women are naming their pets what they had once intended to name their own offspring. [USA Today] Keep reading »
