What's In A Name?

It's not just the big things, like the inability to manage budgets and deficits, that drive me crazy when it comes to government. it's the little things too. Like this one:
A 15-year-old is suing the Icelandic state for the right to legally use the name given to her by her mother. The problem? Blaer, which means "light breeze" in Icelandic, is not on a list approved by the government.

Like a handful of other countries, including Germany and Denmark, Iceland has official rules about what a baby can be named.
Lord have mercy - I thought our government was bad. But at least we have the freedom to name our kids whatever we please.

On second thought, that may not be such a good idea, as these examples from Mostly Cajun show.
Garrett G. & Tavyn(!) V. do a son with classic cars in mind and we see little Hudson Conner.

Joseph A. & Tommeka(!) W. apostrophicate a daughter, little Jayvona Ja’vayah.  Note that they are not proponents of the “capialize the first letter after the goofy-a**ed apostrophe’ rule.

Christopher & Tiffany G. give their son a stripper name, Blaise Alexander.  Oh, yeah, YOU think they named him after a French mathematician?  yeah, right!  They wouldn’t know ‘french mathematician’ if one snuck up and bit ‘em in the ass.

Terrance & Rachelle J. name their daughter after a notorious slut, so we see little Paris Tiana.  Okay, they could’ve named her after a favorite vacation spot for the German Army.

Miss Jerica L. just pops up and tags her son with Wasey James.

Christian & Angela G. name their son after candy, showing us little Neko James. Oh, that’s Necco?  Okay, that makes the name okay, then…

Coby(!) & Lisa C. go the ‘random last name’ route with their daughter,little Harper Anne.

Jamie P. & Kristi(!) L. do a son, Jalyn Lamar.  “I cain’t go ta Wal-marts wit’ ya today.  Dey be jailin’ Lamar.”

Reggie & Buffi(Seriously?!?  Buffi?!?) H. like that “i” at the end of a name, so their daughter is Jayci Lynn.

D’Shawn(!) D. & Alyssa B. dredge up a stripper name for their daughter, little Stormii Kimberlynn.

David & Heidi S. grab a consonant and a handful of vowels from s Scarbble game and come with a name for their daughter, Kaia Evangeline.

Andrew ‘n’ Amber B. give their daughter a career path, tagging her with Cooper Kaylynn.

Miss Morgan M. gives her daughter a boost in life by means of an elegant handle, Auriane Flora’kah.  Baby daddy?  Nope!  Takes a village, and a chunk of my paycheck.

Miss Christina J. triples up on her daughter, little Adyleigh Sue Elyse.  ‘Nother baby daddy flew de coop.

Michael T. & Lauielle(!) R. do a daughter, little A’Moree.

Terrance & Katherine R. apostrophicate their daughter, little Ka’Terra Marie.

Jack & Brittney W. melodically name their daughter Skylar Rayne.

Elton F. & Shila(!) R. start their son at the top, naming him King Brayden.

Cool Song (I normally don’t post full surnames, but ‘Cool Song’ is just too good to leave alone!) & Kelvisha(!) B. do a son, Kayson Rahim.

Elwar(!) D. & Tremayne(!) C. perpetuate the travesty by naming their son Elwar Jancin.

Aarik(!) Y. & Ashlee F. perpetuate their own travesty by taggin their baby boy with Aarik Rochon.

Dakotah(!) F. & Taylor R. name their daughter after a collarless shirt and a green rock, giving us little Henley Jade.

Andrew S. & Alexis P. apostrophicate their baby boy, little Ne’Valyn Terreal.  Who wants to bet they can’t spell that the same way twice in a row?

Seth & Danielle Y. celebrate their Hebraic roots by naming their son Cohen Ray.  One can’t help but wonder if the next son is going to be Levi Bubba?

And the last apostrophe of 2012 comes from William T. & Jennifer S, with their daughter, A’Myri Cruzette.
Pity the poor clerk who has to fill out those birth certificates...

Along those lines, and for your entertainment pleasure...

Anon - those are hard to beat. But some of the ones in Bear's video might just do it.

Bear - too funny. It took me almost a minute to figure out that it was a parody.
