Mostly Cajun posts on a weekly or biweekly basis a list of the, er, creative names he sees in the birth announcements of his local paper. Here are some baseline examples from that source:
Shane P. & Kendra S. screw up TWO names with their daughter, little Madisyn CheyanneI can beat that. A while back, my sister the school teacher told me about one student in her school that had everyone shaking their heads. Her name is spelled "Le-A."
Miss Dellanisha (!) R. has a new son, little Camelo D’Sean.
And last we have a few people who saw past the end of the alphabet as limiting to their creativity so they kept on going into punctuation:Justin K. & Christina B bring their son, Ja’Marrick Travon.
Murphy b. & Megan M. present a little girl, Mikira Ja’Nee.
Byron & Venus D. also present a daughter, Breyah D’Nae.
How do you pronounce that? Lee-ah?
Her mother was furious that her name was such a struggle. "It's pronounced LEDASHA! The DASH AIN'T SILENT!"
But that's not the
His name is pronounced "Sh-THed."
It is spelled, of course, "S-H-I-T-H-E-A-D."
I think I'd be willing to hand him the 2lb. ball-peen hammer myself.
I'm going to bed.
