    I have an illegitimate son that I named Daewoo Matiz, but nowadays everyone calls him Chevy.
    Paul
     
  4. That's better than Richard Crainium, I guess.

    My name isn't the most pleasant name in the world, I got 3 last names. But at least I'm not named after a car part. I could just imagine if the old man had named me Air Horn and everyone would have said," hey Air Horn your name really blows." :eek:
     
  5. My son's middle name is Franklin....only because my dad, brother and grandfather had that same middle name. My wife said, "You just HAD to put a car name in there!"
     
  6. I had a dog thats regestered name was Sparkplug Axel , I call him Sparky for short, but my kids got regular names (Summer, Brook, Moon, etc).

    Blower might be one to avoid. Might also stay away from Injector....

    I used to hang around with a guy whose father named him and his two brothers after insects....thankfully it was their middle names only..

    Skeeter, Chigger, Bugs.

    They grew up to be pretty tough....as I recall not too many people joked about insects around them:eek:

  11. I've always thought it was fitting that the owner of a local tire shop named his son Schrader.

    worked with a guy once his name was Desoto Grilbent lol ...no shit
     
  17. We named our son Cooper

  18. Some cars are actually named after people, like Dodge, Mercedes, Chevrolet, Ford, etc. Even edsell was henry's son's name.

    But there is a large abiss between the family name of a car manufacturer and a car part, like fender or back seat or ???
     
  19. My oldest son is Henry James, HenryJ

    And my youngest is Hudson Rowdy

    and if we have a third boy his first name would be Holden

    When my Wife and I were first married,.. we had a little Mutt who we named Poncho,.. But his nickname actually stuck,.... Early on I started calling him "Flathead",... as a joke,.. But that's what he became affectionately known as.

    If my daughter had been a boy, his (her) name would have been Ardun. Wife didn't agree with that. My second choice was Stewart for a first name and Warner for the middle.

    The wife is glad she turned out to be a girl.
     
  25. But the question becomes what will he be holden. :p

    I guess its no different in someone in the trailer park naming there kid dallas because they rode a bus through there once. Or some hippy chick naming her kid rainbow, because she thought she may have seen on once while doing orange sunshine.

    I tired to actually choose a name for my kid that was not too off the wall, but we didn't give her a middle name and people are forever trying to seperate her name into two names so she can have a middle name. So even though we tried real hard she still ended up with a nightmare name.

    There was a family that I knew in Oregon when I was in high school whose last name was George. They named there son real so that his name was Real George. That was a local saying at the time for something being really screwed up. he got sent to the office a bunch in his lifetime for being a smart ass because when a teacher would ask his name he would say, "Its Real George."

    There is a special place in hell for people that give there kids screwed up names.

    Before we had our first child, I suggested Holley for a girl or Carter for a boy. The wife thought they were great names. I told her they were carbs. We didnt use either. When she was born she looked like an Emily. Good thing cause I had kicked it up a notch and the wife wouldnt go for thermoquad.
