Her momma's name generated

Her momma's name generated the same comment! They seem as if they might sound pretty, but hard to tell. The young lady above is so pretty i'm sure the name doesn't detract from her. i'm sure they had some compelling reason to complicate their lives with such unusual names. i saw another one the other day, some guy named after a back muscle, Latissimus. That is kind of iffy. At least that is better than naming a child after a banana brand, Chiquita, (if it weren't for that unfortunate association, the name would be fine for a youngster's nickname, but hardly fitting for a grown woman). But the names that made me really ill was the ignorant choice of names for female twins, Gonorrhea and Syphilis. Why in the world didn't someone stop them? i don't recall if a name change was in the works when i heard about it, and the names were spelled differently, but still sounded like the words above. Shame, shame. Pansy Potts at least married into her name, her parents didn't saddle her with it. I would say a few other very unusual names, but they live around here still and they've taken enough heat from others about their names for a lifetime.
