The New York Times has just concluded its Worst Bad Name Contest.
Nominations this year included Chastity Beltz, Tiny Bimbo, Justin Credible and a girl whose father was a car mechanic but somehow didn’t realise he was effectively giving her the name of a tyre: Michele Lynn.
There were girls named Chaos and Tutu, and boys named Clever, Cowboy, Crash, Felony, Furious and Zero. There was Unnamed Jones (pronounced you-NAH-med) and then there was Brook Traut and his daughter, Rainbow.
But the winner was a woman from Cleveland, Ihio with the name Iona Knipl.
Have you come across an unfortunate name? If so please share and I’ll post a blog piece highlighting the best of them next weekend, after consulting the Silly Names Committee at MSN Towers of course.
