Bad baby names

My SO found this site a couple of days ago, and since then has spent many hours wincing at the atrocious baby names while laughing at the witty commentary poking fun at them. The intro to the site sums up its content:
The following is a catalog of naming questions and suggestions posted on several different baby naming bulletin boards going back as far as early 2001. All entries are left unedited except for length.

As you will see, some parents-to-be have gone so far into the realm of baby-obsession they have lost track of the real, adult world. Their view is so skewed their only concerns are a) making their child "unique" and b) trying to keep the kid from being teased, often with terrible results.

Steel yourself, take a few deep breaths, and read.
