From Niamh:

Dorcus (female), I think we can see all the names the kids at school (and everywhere else) might call her....


Wow -- I wonder where the name Dorcus came from and if it was popular at another time in history.

Anyway, Dorcus is definitely one of the worst names someone could call their girl today.

From Lynne Chapman:
Quote:
A teacher friend of mine said she had a student named Female - pronunced fa-mall-ly. The parents thought that the hospital named the baby --- female. <img src="/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />


<img src="/images/graemlins/ooo.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> That would be an terrible name to grow up with.

From Janet Boyer:
Quote:

Gosh, there's quite a few names that I don't like. Hazel, for one (which is what Julia Roberts named one of her twins.)

... She named her child "Urine" (thinking it was pronounced yourEEN).


What an awful thing to happen! That poor child. I'd probably change it when I got older.

But we won't put "Hazel" in the poll, because there are people who like it (including me). <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Quote:

Aran'-zhaa-lo and Lamon'-zhaa-lo - Spelled, they were "Orange Jello" and "Lemon Jello.


I heard this story a while ago, but I wasn't sure if it was true or not. "Yahoo" turned out to be UNTRUE -- it was reported that a Romanian couple had named their baby boy "Yahoo" because they'd met on the internet. But it turned out that a jouralist was just trying to get things stirred up around the office!

I guess Aran'-zhaa-lo (Orange Jello) could be shortened to Aran -- but then it would still be spelled "Orange". Sheesh!

And Lemon Jello could be called "Lamon" (but it'd be spelled Lemon".) Yikes! I'm glad my parents named me, even if my name has never been fashionable!!

Hi Victoria!

Quote:

Worst celebrity baby name - Jermajesty (Michael Jackson's nephew)

Name I can't name my son because everyone is using it now... Roman (and that's his dad's name)


Jermajesty isn't too nice a name, is it?

I'm so sorry about "Roman" -- but even though it's going way up in popularity right now -- you can still use it. Perhaps it is pronounced and spelled slightly different in a different language -- like Matthew and Mateo.
------------------------------------------------------------------

OK -- I have these names: A' Risin' Starr, 2la, Oym'unique, Rainbeau Jane, Heavenly Angel, Schlok, Jermajesty, Dorcus (female), Urine (Your-EEN), Female (fah-mall-ly), Orange Jello, and Lemon Jello.

Phinnaeous (the name Julia gave to her son) sounds more greek, but I could be wrong.


I just looked the name up, and it is a Hebrew name (spelled "Phineas")... lol and babynames.com says that it means 'loudmouth' lol... <img src="/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Just for fun I looked up Hazel (knowing very well that it means 'Hazel Tree') and its origins are Celtic and does indeed mean Hazel Tree <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />.

It wasnt listed at babynames.com (did a search for it there), but it would be interesting to see the origin of that name. I remember it because I saw it in a baby names book a few years ago, and the name just always stood out in my mind... its just such a horrible name lol.

Hello, I could not resist seeing what I could find about the name Dorcas. This info is from an internet site:

Dorcas The Greek form, Dorkas, means "wild she-goat," or "gazelle." The Aramaic form is Tabitha.

Thanks for looking information up Nancy and Niamh!

Dorcas (dor'kus) or Tabitha [Gr. Dorcas and Aramaic Tabitha=gazelle], in the Acts of the Apostles, Christian woman of Joppa whom St. Peter raised from the dead. She made clothes for the poor.

Dorcas was in the top 1000 popular names in the United States for these dates:

1930-1939 836
1920-1929 656
1910-1919 730
1900-1909 764

Also, Dorcas was one of the characters in the play, The Winter's Tale, by William Shakespeare.

If you look up "dork" in any dictionary in North America it's meaning is different. Dork must not be a short form of Dorcas, but when I hear the name, I think of a "dork":

dork (d�rk) pronunciation
n.

1. Slang. A stupid, inept, or foolish person: �the stupid antics of America's favorite teen-age cartoon dorks� (Joshua Mooney).
2. Vulgar Slang. The [censored].

[Perhaps from dork, variant of DIRK.]
dork'i�ness n.
dork'y adj.

from The American Heritage� Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition at www.answers.com

Sooooooo -- it's probably not a good thing to call your daughter in this part of the world!

But I love the name Tabitha! <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/music.gif" alt="" />

Tiflynn, Raine is English and it means Wise Ruler. (so says babynames.com)

I guess "Quin" could be a nickname for Quintin, but Quin sounds more like a girls name. Well I just looked it up and it is a unisex name (Quin). So both males and females can use the name Quin. I've only seen it used for girls, but I guess it can be for both. Quin means Quintuplet or Fifth, and Quintin means the same thing.

My dad's first name is Norbert...his parents called him Norby. He HATES it and doesn't use it at all. He goes by his middle name...Thomas.

I love the name siobann(pronounced shevon) it's Irish. I also so love my daughters names...Brandy Lorraine and Jazmine Danielle. My son is named after Jim Morrison - James Douglas - I would have never agreed to it but James Douglas is a good strong Irish name and actually runs in my family tree. Besides, I think he looks like a Jimmy...

Can't tell I like my kids alittle huh...:)

My great-grandmother's first name was Cleofa and her middle name was Zeldora. Both names, IMO, are HORRIBLE..and I think my great-grandmother agreed, because unless someone called her CeCe, she wouldn't respond to a single soul!!
