Moroccan Scott and Monroe Cannon.
Brazil has a law where judges can overturn stupid names, Superman and Rambo have been vetoed in recent years.
France apparently has a list of correct spelling for names so idiot parents who can't spell are not able to give their offspring "quirky" spellings for life while labelling them the children of fucktards.
We should combine the two.
I disagree, mangle. When presented with a new class list, I need only to peruse it for a short time to know who will be nice, who will be loud, who will be thick and who will be the spawn of old nick (or Nnyk, as some would spell it). I am rarely wrong.
cyolba, condemning kids before I've met them
Am I the only one who actually quite likes Monroe as a first name? Admittedly, it might be better off as a middle name, but I don't think it's too awful. Apparently, Mariah Carey owns Marilyn Monroe's piano and is a lifelong fan. I don't think it's too bad a choice/reason.
Moroccan, on the other hand....
Perhaps they'll call him Rocky for short. That's almost normal.
So, is Monroe a girl or a boy?
Come to think of it, is Moroccan a girl or a boy?
The thing is, will they be little brats at school as most wierdo named kids are?
Careful MSB - I'd patent that before some celeb uses it.
Stupid names. I think anyone who calls their kids such bizarre things (for effect - 'look how original I am'?) is short of a few brain cells.
I really like unusual names, but cranky and whacky combinations like MC's make her look rather desperate to be original. They don't sound pleasant, have no historical or mythical value and don't roll off the tongue easily either.
Her prerogative though. Poor kids.
In the school in Spain where I work as a volunteer there is a girl called LadyDi. All one word. Pronounced lad dee dee . And another called Nemesis.
I just hope there is some form of divine retribution against those parents.

If they are anything like their mother allegedly is, I think she could have called them the most normal names on the planet and they'd be little brats.
I nearly got called a weird name... Dad wanted to call me either Austin Princess (please note: I am a girl!) or Boudicca. I am so glad my mum is very sensible! Saying that, my name is unusual in that it's not a common name, so I didn't get away too lightly!
Moroccan is a boy, Monroe is a girl. I can kind of understand 'Morocco' as a name, but Moroccan? He's called Moroccan because the top floor of her NYC apartment is decorated with a Moroccan theme! Reference!
