My Name is Ade, What's Yours?
I have heard some names that made me ask, "What the hell was the parent thinking?" It felt like they want the child to be mocked as long as she/he lived by giving a name easy to make fun of. I'm not referring to names that the pronunciation had an alternate meaning in another language, but names that were stupid in every language.
So, my name is Ade, what's yours? A man had always wanted a male child, despite 5 girls, he wanted a boy. The guy that would be just like him. His wife finally delivered a baby with a dick and you bet the naming ceremony was the shit. Everyone ate, drank, and probably went home to make babies BUT as if the MC wasn't humorous enough, the father decided to drop the punchline which would be the boy's name. He begun with a speech of how he had always wanted a boy blah blah blah and named him...are you ready, Sixtus (even my system underlined the name with red as if it was an error). I know we've had Popes with such name but...I mean, Sixtus. I can't imagine the guy being called by his future girlfriend, "My boyfriend's name is Sixtus". I thought his middle name would redeem him, the family added Chikwado. Chikwado Sixtus or Sixtus Chikwado, damn.
There were more outrageous name I've heard. There was a babe whose name was Amicable. Another was Golden. Let's not forget the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday...Sunday names. Then names like Thank God, Amen...
Anyway, I bet we couldn't beat the west when it comes to fucked up names especially celebrities. They give names like Ivy Blue (Jay-Z/Beyonce), Destry (Spielberg), Buddy Bear (Jamie Oliver)....and these other names I saw online.
