    Cousin baby stole that name. It's been a tense year for them moms. At least that's how I want the story to spin.

    That’s a really old racist joke, though.

    I didn’t know that. This actually happened to R this week and he had to leave a note for the person who called back on how to pronounce it.

    From the above Snopes:

    What we have found through searching online Social Security databases (which are not complete repositories of information and thus aren’t the final say in the matter) showed that while there were more than 4,000 “Lea”s, there weren’t any “Le-a”s. For what it’s worth, references in various news stories document that “Ledasha” (fully spelled out, not in a “Le-a” form) has indeed been used as a girl’s name.

    Evoleht.

    I assume because it’s “the love” backwards.

    Zaiden... or Zeyden, I'm not sure, but I heard a mom at the zoo say it to her kid.

    Which is extra fun, since I’m reading this as “Evil-ette,” or, Tiny Evil.

    Brayan. No idea of biological sex since, to me, it could be Bray-Ann or Bryan.

    Yeah exactly. To be fair they were Australian so maybe it's not a car thing there?

    At first I read it as Macao, which would still be fucking stupid but not nearly as bad.
     
  20. Comet

    Comet Chicken

    Did you see it written & spelled like that, or was it possibly Mako (like the shark)? Still bad, but not a brand name at least?
     
  21. hellohelloagain

    hellohelloagain Chicken

    That's a possibility. It was on a documentary series I was watching so I didn't see it written out, just heard it said

    This is not new, but I wanted to register my surprise and disappointment that people are still naming babies Nevaeh.

    The best is when they shoot for Nevaeh but spell it wrong.

    I actually know of twins, one is Heaven and the other is Nevaeh.
