"Funny" names should be limited to middle names. Naming the kid John Megatron Smith wouldn't open him up to as much ridicule, as he could only use it if he really likes it. My cousin is a huge Dallas Cowboys and Emmitt Smith fan, so he gave his first son the middle name "Emmitt". Now obviously having that as a first name wouldn't be as bad as something like Megatron (although they're white, not black :lol:), but still, the concept is the same.

I would hate my parents if they gave me a name like Megatron. Not only would I have been the fat kid, but I would be made fun of for being named Megatron.

NOTE: I would make fun of someone if their name was Megatron.

There is some truth to that

My last name is Ness so i always thought it would be funny to name my kid Harry Phillip Ness. Get it Harry P. Ness. :D But i couldn't do that, it would be torture in school.


There was a kid at the camp I went to whose name was Chris Peacock. He always put a few second pause between the first and second names.

If you find something else that starts with H, you could make it H. P. Ness ;)

I find this to be pretty stupid. Aparently this idiot isn't thinking of the amount of ridicule and harassment this kid will get throughout life. Finding jobs or anything professional will be limited just due to a name like that because many companies would look at the app and think someone was just screwing around and then they'd throw it. He needs to drop his personal fantasy or obsession and instead think of his childs future.
