The parents really went off the child-naming deep end after the first kid.

RIP, but those are some dumbass names.

What value did this post provide? There's plenty of other threads here to be a petty dickhead in - this ain't one.

ex-brother-in-law named his son Justin Indiana (after Indiana Jones). Technically, I did something similar naming our oldest Elise Makenna after Elise McKenna played by Jane Seymore in Somewhere In Time, but no one would know that if I didn't point it out. I certainly didn't name my kiddo Luke Skywalker. Geesh.

You pretty new here?

All threads are fair game. I'm not bashing dead kids; I'm bashing their dumb ass parents that:
a) gave their kids stupid names based on movies that came out around the time each kid was born, and
b) probably left their Harry Potter incense warmer turned on too long, which overheated and caught their Avengers costumes on fire.

Nah, I'm good here!

Maybe you quit white-knighting for Odin, Drako, and Phenix and their idiot parents. Unless you somehow know or are related to their parents or something, what you're really doing is basically message board "thoughts and prayers" - faux concern doesn't matter!

No, you're a miserable ass who garners some odd self worth from insulting victims on a random forum.

And you're a self-righteous horse's rear that feels a need to insert yourself into things that don't require your insertion*.

*Unlike OP's mom who always requires insertion.

Seriously man, if you're not here for enjoyment and finding the lighter side of pretty much anything, then you may want to go find some more reputable quilting circle. And you should really figure there's a difference between making fun of stupid names and the stupider parents who gave them the names, and making fun of dead kids, otherwise you're never going to get it. In that case you're probably a huge Jim Gaffigan fan, whereas I'm more of an Anthony Jeselnik fan.
