Post # 76 The New Name Game

My wonderful friend, Rachel, was over to visit on Monday. We were talking about her pregnancy and baby names. I have successfully obliterated any hope of having any opportunity of naming her child. We agreed not to laugh at each other's childrens names until their fifth birthday. Who knew it was so easy to make fun of people's names with the last name Fehr. Not before you go and get all offended I would change the sound of the name to fur or fair as appropriate to accomplish the name mocking. Do I post the names and hope that no has named their child this?...hmmm... I think so. In honour of menno tradition the first is Fay Fehr = pfeffeureneuse. #2 Trade Fehr= trade fair or Fair Trade(Go MCC!) #3 Job Fehr, #4 Spruce Fehr = Spruce Fir #5 Doing Fehr - Conversation:
" Hi Who are you?"
" Doing Fehr."
" No I said who are you not how are you?"
" Doing Fehr."
"Look buddy I want to know your name, than I will ask how you are!?"
" Yes, Doing Fehr"
"You little..."

You get the idea.

We than moved on to the ever so spiritual point and read. We may have used a Bible, but we definitely used a cook book and my Med-Surg text. Very funny! we had Boiling Fehr, Stirring Fehr. I wish I had written them down. So if you are bored just grab a random book and match a name to your last name or just think of how to make fun of first names. If you would like to ensure that your child's name is mock proof. Just drop me a line and I can have a looksy for a small, financially challenged student fee!

Well I hope you enjoyed this as much as me. Ciao! Sorry if anyone was offended or now does not like their name. Just know that my name can be scary, hairy, fairy, airy, berry or just add bobbins. There is also a song that can be brutalized with my name in it so don't feel to sorry for yourself:)

What's really funny is that I was msn-ing with Kevin and reminding him to avoid names that can make bad nicknames. With James and I, we'll have to be careful with their initials. Ots...

Of course, if we name a kid Robert, his name would be Rob Ots. Which can look like Robots! If we named another kid Margaret, it can be shortened to Mag, and Mag Ots isn't good.

Palmer, I'm sure you can come up with more! But luckily we're not planning on starting a family just yet, so you've got some time to think up more things to avoid.

Oh, and just straight initials are to be avoided as well. P.O.O. is not good! :D

You are hilarious. I am not posting it for people on the internet...what do you think I am? Some sort of sicko? Haha...it was actually for a profile picture link for my other blog. I just had to keep it there for the link to work...not sure why I wrote what I did. Hahahaha....like that you freaked out though. That's awesome. I'm coming home in 4 weeks...did you know that? Plans changed tremendously and I plan to come visit some time between April 15th and the 22nd..I'll be in S'toon. And yes...I would still love my house coat. Haha...thanks!
