Sunday. I woke up smiling. That’s always nice. It’s sunny for now but it should be cloudy in a couple of hours… I managed to read a few posts yesterday and that made me feel good. There is still a lot to catch up and I’ll do my best the coming days while trying to study the driving rules.
I think that watching cartoons with my kids, not having to prepare dinner (I fed them pretzels with cheese and ice-cream), a glass of sweet white wine and a nice chat with a friend, helped me feel better.

One of the posts I read yesterday from Marissa (rockandrollsupermom.wordpress.com) was a poem about having an unfortunate last name. You can read the funny poem here.

I told Marissa that sometimes parents choose really terrible names for their kids and I think that it’s much worse than inheriting an unfortunate last name.

I only searched names in Spanish but I’m sure that you can find these atrocities in every language.

Nombre(s) means Name(s).

Check the names mom and dad chose for me!! (Then add the last name to them (apellido(s)).

These are only a few examples of bad names. Then there is the combo name + last name.
Some countries have laws against naming your kid ridiculous names but some others don’t… And I’m really sorry those kids are born in those countries and have the kind of parents you wish you could hit sometimes.

These are some combination of names (name + last name) that are banned from some countries.

Many years ago, the slogan from a bank in my country was: “Un buen nombre, es lo más importante que uno puede tener”. It means: “A good name, it’s the most important thing one can have”. I bet all these people agree with it.

  5. In some countries that will remain nameless, it is traditional to try to protect your child from demons by giving the child a nickname that is very unappealing. The true names are never spoken except by immediate family so the person is known for life by their nickname. The most popular name in one country is…..wait for it…Pig Shit! Thought you might like to know that 🙂
