You know my feelings on people who name their kids dumb or pretentious names. The dumb names remain dumb throughout their lives. And the pretentious fancy-sounding names ultimately become common names for strippers and call girls. Equally dumb. Ditto for naming your kid after something you like to run on (you know who did that).
So, I was looking at the list of those running for various seats in the Michigan Legislature, as our primary is August 3rd. And in Detroit, a guy who is running for the Michigan House of Representatives is named . . .
Yes, that’s right. It’s a guy’s name. It would be bad enough if it was a girl’s name, since it sounds like a stripper name. But a guy? Oy vey. It’s even worse. And I can’t say, “What was his mother thinking?” (as I did with a certain moron who named her son, “Track,” because she likes to run and “refudiate”). That’s because he’s not only Liscious Williams, he’s Liscious Williams III. Yup, three generations of mothers gave their kids this name.
I don’t fault the guy. He didn’t pick the name. But you gotta wonder how someone chooses a name like that for their kid. It’s a form of child abuse.
Please no e-mails or comments alleging racism. The person who named her kid, “Track,” is White, and so are plenty of other people whose kids’ names I’ve critiqued.
What are some of the worst first names you’ve heard of?
