Cruel names for the cruel world delightfully mad Slut, Sweden 146 posts

Everyone knows Dick Cox is a cruel, cruel thing to name your baby. But the 21st century provides so many more inventive ways to give your kid the shaft and teach them about the unfairness of life before s/he's even born by having fun with names!



Amusing updates in cruelty include...



Twins (not just the realm of Essie and Bessie any more!):
Sirius and Hilarius
Similarly, Hilarius and Pius (both pope names)
Hope and Despair
Eel-Nevaeh and Heaven-Lee, to take this puke-inducing trend one step further




Fun with Puns:
- Calla with any profession-related surname. Calla Ho would be my favorite, but I've also known RL people with surnames like Housekeeper (she was a maid, no joke, look her up, her name is Marla and she used to live and work as a maid in the eastside area of WA), Butcher, Barber, Knight, Nurse.
- Similarly, vintage names are in so the real-life inspiration Ima Hogg could lend her first name to any number of profession or noun surnames for an interesting pun.
- Outa Time/Thyme/Tyme is the more cynical younger sibling (or, by now, daughter) of our old pal Justin.
- Cameron "Cam" Elot



Just plain crazy:
See "Celebrity Baby Announcements" section in your weekly newsstand rag for inspiration in baby names so insane, they're cruel.




Help me think of more cruel names!

Virginia sounds like the kind of state you'd pick up a suspicious rash in, too.
