Once again proving the utter stupidity of some parents, and why bad child naming should be considered a form of child abuse: this story from New Zealand.
Kids get teased for even relatively "normal" names. I myself had to endure a childhood of torture with "Huff and Puff" and "H.R. HUFF-n-stuf", and even "Lisa-Pizza" (the boy who came up with that one wasn't exactly in the gifted and talented program).
Imagine if you named your kid "*". What would the other kids call him?
And if you named your kid "Messiah", he'd spend his life doing a Monty Python's Life of Brian impression:
"I'm NOT the bloody Messiah!"
And what kind of sicko would name their kid "Anal"? Are these parents on drugs or something?
I still think Gwyneth Paltrow had to have been half in the bag when she named her daughter "Apple". And Frank Zappa named his kids Dweezel and Moon Unity -- and we know all about Frank, right?
I'm just saying.
