Here is an article I've found on the internet today. I'm just curious what you think about it.
To me it's just ridiculous to call a child Talula Does The Hula or twins Fish and Chips. Some dogs have better names.



"WELLINGTON (AFP) - A New Zealand judge has ordered a name change for an embarrassed nine-year-old girl called Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii, a local newspaper reported Thursday.

The girl was so embarrassed that she had not revealed the name given by her parents to friends, who simply knew her as K, the Taranaki Daily News said.

Family court judge Rob Murfitt said in a judgement made in February -- but not released until Thursday -- that oddball monikers created social hurdles as children grew up.

"She fears being mocked and teased and in that she has a greater level of insight than either of her parents," he said of the girl.

The judge discovered New Zealand parents had given their children some other unusual names including Number 16 Bus Shelter and Midnight Chardonnay, both of which may relate to the conception of the child.

One child was named Violence and two pairs of twins were called Benson and Hedges and Fish and Chips. The children from one family were all named after six-cylinder Ford cars."

I must admit that those are definitely some names I find to be a bit strange, but I think its kinda cool in my opinion. But then again its not my place to say that they are cool. If I had a name like "Taula does the Hula" or be part of a set of twins called either "Fish" or "Chips" I'd probably be mortified. I see that more as a nickname than a real name -_-

On a side note...

...Still to this day, I find the coolest name to be Cheapham, which happens to be the name of my college classmate XD

A lot of adults/parents find these names cute or beautiful but the ones that suffer the most because of it are the kids. If I had a name like that you can guarantee I'd be at city hall changing my name the moment I hit the legal age.
