  • Who Names Their Child 'Blanket'?

    Was perusing Fox News and this caught my eye:

    It's a nickname. Odd, but I've heard worse. And as for real names, how about Dweezel, Moon Unit and Motor Head, for starters?

      My daughter went to school with twins. They were named Orangejello and Lemonjello.
      They were pronounced Orangalo and Lemahngalo. If that makes sense.

      I think Blanket may be better than being named for a jiggly fruit dish.

        From the article it was Michael Jackson's son...so it figures.
        and Michael Jackson's son, Blanket was an intended target.

        What's disturbing is that a 13 yr old can buy a stun gun.

          "Pajamas" (pronounced PAJ-uh-mus) is my favorite unique name.

          I thought "Racecar" would be a cool middle name for my son, but my wife objected.

            I hope "Shooters" wasn't their last name.

            As in, "I'd like to introduce you to the Shooters, Orangejello and Lemonjello."

              My mom was in high school with twins, the Hogg sisters, named Ima and Ura... (I didn't believe it, either, so she hauled out the yearbook, and sure enough... )

                I used to work with a guy whose wife was an OB/GYN nurse at a very rural hospital. She was in the room of a new mother whose baby was recently born at the hospital and asked what she named her baby. The woman told her that she named her baby "Vagina" (yes, the female reproductive part). She asked her if she knew what that name meant and why she named her baby that. The woman simply replied that she did not know what it meant, but always thought it "sounded pretty".

                  I recall reading somewhere that the inventor William Lear, who invented the 8-track tape and the Lear Jet, named his daughter "Shanda".

                  I also heard that she was a bright kid

                    Grace Slick from the Jefferson Airplane, named her kid God, originally the name was going to be "Dog Dish".

                      I would love to see that yearbook. According to Snopes Ima Hogg (1882-1975) was real, the daughter of Texas Governor James Steven Hogg. Ura is the added-on part of the legend. I looked it up because the Hogg 'sisters' are a part of Texas folklore. Doesn't mean there aren't others out there.

                      BTW, as funny as the name seems now, it may have been common in the late 1800's. My dad was born in 1904 and was christened Pleas. His older sisters were Althea and Ida.

                      Several years ago there was a birth announcement in Leatherneck magazine of a daughter born to a pair of Marines give the name of Marina Cora.

                          I may have it someplace. Some of her old books survived, some did not, but I'll check...

                            The former wife of a 2nd cousin had the last name of Pigg. She was from Texas also. No real catchy first name though

                              My neighbor, Linda, works at our general hospital. A new mom became enamored of the word "Meconium" and it is now her new daughter's name.
