What's in a Name?

Been seeing a lot about names in blog land lately. Name my baby, you named her what!?!?,maybe you should keep your maiden name- Jenny Denny (real person true name, I know her) Doesn't quite do it for me etc.

So today Lean and I plan on meeting her friend Danish (fake name, real boy) and his mom Cutie(fake name, real mom) at the spray park. We are going to meet his new baby brother. We get there, help them out of their car, I ask Danish what his brother's name is. He says "Marty McFly Julian Danish". I ask Cutie, "what did Danish say?"
answer 'Marty McFly Julian Danish". Okay.
I smile and look at Cutie. She smiles back and we go on. Normally I wouldn't give this a thought but this is Cutie and she was an art major- creative and such. That could really be his name.

I say to baby, "Hey Marty Mcfly" he gurgles and drools. No help there. We start eating lunch and I say, "What are you going to call him?" Cutie, "Well his grandpa calls him Marty McFly Julian, his daddy calls him Marty McFly, but I just like Marty"...UH-HUH... We chew on. Cutie and Danish are a bit eccentric so this isn't as surprising as you might think.

Keep chewing. "Did you really name him Marty McFly Julian Danish?" See here's where she could really have driven the nail in my Dork-o- meter. But she didn't, she's sweet like that (I would have had her going for quiite awhile I tell you).
Cutie, "It's just Julian".

But they really do call him Marty McFly. Do you think he'll grow up warped?

That is too funny. I'm so gulable I'd probably have believed them myself. People do strange things now a days.

Hi Jean, thanks for stopping by my blog and for your far-too-kind compliment!
I laughed when I read this and immediately thought of "Back to the Future" where the character is Marty McFly. And when I was at school it was a running joke when someone did something a little dumb one of the girls would say to the other 'McFLY! McFLY!' like they do in the film. So lol, I was hoping the whole time I read your post that they were kidding! Thank goodness!

How could you look at your sweet new baby boy and say, "I know - how about Marty McFly for a nickname???" and have that seem like a good idea?

I'm kind of shocked, really. What kind of people do you hang out with?

Will he grow up warped?

Did you really just ask a predict-the-future question about a kid named Marty McFly?

What's In A Name, you ask? Well, lately a whole lotta made-up, ooh-look-at-what-a-cre8tive-mommeigh-I-am, nonsensical, nonphonetical, unpronounceable without a guide, unspellable without a guide, ridiculous, abhorrent, stripperish, weird.....CRAP!

I try to keep quiet when I hear baby naming horrors and only snark online because I'm a coward and hide behind the guise of anonymity.

The sales manager where I bought my truck? Dick Woodworth. That made me smile.

Well it works for me. I'd like to share ours but I don't think I'd survive the condemnation!
Cheers

I sorta like the whole McFly thing. Imagine when you're looking for him at the store. You could call out, "McFlyy! McFlyyyy!" Good times.

I predict he will grow up to be a dork, that meets his future son, who sets him up with his wife, that changes his future, to become a famous sci-fi writer.

I love those movies, so I can't give an unbiased opinion. =P

Jean Knee said...
