PEOPLE ARE INSANE

Oh, those wacky Romanians. First Dracula, then gymnasts, now naming their son Yahoo after meeting online.

At least it's his middle name. His first name is Lucian, and his last name is Dragoman, which I anticipate will become "Lucifer Dragon-Man" before recess on the first day of Transylvanian kindergarten.

I make a solemn vow to you, devoted readers:

I am not naming my kid JDate, no matter what.

Lucifer Dragon-man!

Kids can be so cruel.

I point you to Sheppard v. Speir, out of Arkansas. A trial court had granted custody of a child to his biological father, and granted the request that the child's name be changed to Samuel Charles [Last Name].

The child's mother had originally named her baby...

Wait for it...

Weather'By Dot Com Chanel Fourcast Sheppard

No. Not a joke.

Apparently, (1) She'd heard of Weatherbee as a last name, so she thought it'd be a good first name; (2) she worked on the teleprompter computer at a local tv station, so that's the Dot Com; (3) She'd heard of other people being named Chanel (soft ch sound, there); (4) This was her FOURth child, so that's why fourcast; and the last name was hers, because she's a traditionalist, you know.

God, I wish I was kidding.
