    The worst name I ever saw was Hheennrryy - yes, Henry with every letter doubled. The parents who were responsible for this atrocity were so proud of it they had it printed on T-shirts which the kid was forced to wear. Can only hope karma comes back to bite them when the kid one day presents them with the bill for his therapy. The selection of children's names is far too important to be left to parents, who will always try to satisfy their own ego without any consideration for the child's future.

    If you can't think up your own name, you should never have had a baby.
