Odd Names in the fore this week.

Last night at the pub a lady mentioned that a family in Derbyshire had named their little girl 'Chlamydia' deadly serious joke. perhaps she has a brother called Syphilis  .... poor little girl.  They apparently liked the name but obviously didnt know the meaning. 

My mothers cousin's offspring has named their new boy 'Montague Odysseus'   that is cruel.. what a flipping mouthful.

We were discussing the name Judas on the way home from leicester today,, do people name a child Judas?   Definately Jude (we have one in the family) which is a variant of the name Judas.  According to thinkbaby names, Judas is not a popular first name for men and an equally uncommon surname or last name for all people ... hmmmmm... I remember a boy in my class at school called 'Adolf'  and even at 11 years of age thinking his name was a tad strange.

Perhaps the goverment should police names instead of lunchboxes? definately in the case of Chlamydia!
