    I do get a tad angry when I see some of the made-up stupidness I've seen floating around recently. Briley, Brinley, MaKaylyn - stuff like that. Your child will grow up and have to be an adult with that name, it's selfish and cruel to make your child sound like a 5 year old for the rest of their life and when it comes to their future career, you are not helping them in the least.

    Yes, it DOES make me a bit angry. I went to college for HR, I'm the one whose going to have to be dealing with this silliness when your children grow up and need a job.

    Also, the boys names on girls thing angers me. Yes, actually angers me - mostly because it ONLY goes from masculine to feminine, it's completely frowned upon for it to go from feminine to masculine. The double standards and the social implications are just...wrong.

    There was one at my husband's school before he became a teacher there. Several colleagues have confirmed it.

    He also heard about a girl named Abcde -- pronounced AB-sid-ay. Urban legend or not, that's pretty terrible.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Madison or Addison. Those names drive me INSANE! (Except if Addison is on a boy, because it's a boys name...) Also, most -ley (Bentley, Kinley, Brinley, etc.) names sound pretentious and made-up to me.
