I just saw this lady's name: Lillian Mae Swallow. Anyone else think this is not the name to give a child? It was her married name.

Oh my. Not that it is a bad name in itself but it does bring naughty thoughts to the mind.

Exactly. I really like the name Lillian but all those names together in that order . . .

Reverse it, it's even worse I did it just to see if she could go by her middle name.

I think she should have dropped the middle name and kept her maiden name in place of it. It is a bad name.

I know LIsa, I am horrible. But it made me laugh during a really bad point at work today.

What can I say, bad name, good chuckle?

My friend called me from work the other morning. She works at the Accounting department of the business school at IU. She HAD to tell me about this name a student had--first name, mind you, stuck with it.

That's right. That's the poor boys name. Do you think the mother was a little prophetic here?

Uh, don't think I would be telling too many people my middle name if I was her!

That's funny Anna! I bet that he was a foreign student because when I went to NCSU and later worked there, I came across some really funny looking names of foreign students. To them they were normal, everyday names, but for us they really looked and sounded odd!
