One of the latest 'trends' that we've observed in the more & more absurd game of child naming is the merging of two names (because apparently, people can be that indecisive now) to form one ridiculous title, like 'Staniel', or 'Audlissa'.
Yes, apparently, this is now a thing.
If my child ends up going to school with a kid that's unfortunate to have parents this inane, I'm going to make sure they get made fun of. It's not my fault. It's their parents' fault.
But it doesn't have to be this bad, does it? I often get chastised for being boring, for wanting names like Daniel & Ava, but really, is that such a sin, when in a few years' time, he or she will be going to school surrounded by other kids named Atticus and Thelonius? (Well done, hipsters, that's your legacy)
The good folks at www.bubhub.com.au have put together a good system, though. It seems quite logical & balanced, without too much room for making too much of a mess of things. Check it out here:
Right now, though, it's time for me to get out of here. It's Friday night!!
