So I'm watching Texas play Stanford in women's volleyball. It's cool, there are miles and miles of legs with not much shorts.

So I'm enjoying the scenery and the announcer say's "Hooker with the kill" LOL OK, Hooker, that's rough. So then I looked her up to see WTF the deal was and check out this name. What in the shit were her parents thinking???

DESTINEE HOOKER

Come on dude. Name her Nicole or something. Seriously.

Some parents are very cruel. I do a lot of indexing of hospital records, and I've see some doozies. The ones I hate (especially since I have to pay closer attention when typing) is when they think of all sorts of crazy ways to spell common names. Amy becomes Aimee. Brandon becomes Brandyn (which seems a little feminine looking to me). Michael becomes Mykel. So on....

i supposed it could of been worse, they could of named her "Ima" or "Juawanna"

It could be worse. Your parents could have named you Adolf Hitler (insert last name I can't remember).

There is a man in North Carolina named "Harold Dick" and on his Sam's Club card it said "Harry Dick". I mean that is what he goes by. We used to look it up when I used to work there in college.

It's not quite as obvious, but there was a teacher at our high school named Harry Pusey.

I've never found one (aside from perhaps Adolph Hitler) that was worse than a girl at my high school. Her name was Tender Lee Mount.

(Tender, if you ever find this googling yourself, I'm glad you have a sense of humor about your name!)

I got rear ended a few weeks ago and the guy who hit me wrote down his insurance agents name as Harry Kock. He had put it down wrong, the agents name was Harry Koch.

If anyone out there is Googling a combination of rear end and harry kock and you come across this post, you've got problems.

I delivered a baby that the parents named Dragon. I thought they would pronounce it with a long A or something. No such luck...Dad said, you know, like Dungeons and Dragons. Poor kid.
