Today Confessions of a Working Mom and the (Un)Experienced Mom host their weekly Top 3 Thursday. The theme today is your Top 3 Favorite Names. I thought about it when I read it earlier, but decieded I didn't really have anything interesting to add to this one. But I have been influenced. And I'm invoking creative liberty and twisting their theme a bit (don't hate me...its funny)
Top 3 Names I Would NOT Name My Child (that are real names)3. Bryant : Shudder. **When it is used as Bear Bryant** Honestly this just seems like a dog's name to me, but waaaaay to many kids are stuck with this name after the late great Coach Bear Bryant gag Even my sweet nephew has been saddled with this name, but at least its his middle name (and it's b/c of his dad...my sister-in-law's ex)
2. Tyde: Seriously? Its the name of detergent people, just changing a letter doesn't make it any better, and it does not show support for your team.
1. Crimson: Oh no. This poor child is doomed. And my co-worker told me she knew a little girl named Crimson. How far will people take their love of a football team?
This post was inspired by this story. The absolute worst name: Crimson Tide Redd. Have I mentioned I grew up in Alabama? Go read this short little story...it will make you laugh, and you will understand a bit more of some of the people I grew up with!
Disclaimer: No, I would not name my child War, Eagle, Aubie, Go, Tigers, Shug, Dye, Jordan ... ok I would name a child Jordan, but it would not be pronounced Jurdan
p.s. Perhaps you have to be a true bleed orange and blue Auburn fan to find this funny, but let me tell you...it has made my day. And I know it will at least make Allyson smile!
