    This article inspires me. I'm gonna name my kids HBO and BBC.

    And of course, baby sister NBC.

    Anyone ever think of what you're doing to the kid when naming them after a television station? Any time someone says your name, BAM free advertising, among other things.

    That would be cool if one of those kids grows up to be an ESPN sports anchor.

    I'd name my kid BBC. It wouldent fit very well thougth as I would raise my children to know the value of money, to respect thier country and to accurately tell the truth.

    Would you also make sure they don't repeat things dozens of times?

    I'd try, or at least get them to repeat with some variety instead of just the same half a dozen things over and over.

    This kid is assured a long life of beatings, humiliation, and the frustration of living up to the standards of a sports fanatic father. Good job, parents, you just picked a winner!

    If you name your kid after food, a comic book, sci-fi charachter, tv station or some outlandish name you deserve to be beaten and the kid gets renamed to something normal..

    If I was the kid I would just end up getting it changed to Espen. At least then the name would look like a cool european name.

    Even I wouldn't name my kids somethng stupid like that...

    I knew someone who named their kid Alucard... that was a bit special.

    I was listening to a podcast by the authors Tracy and LAura Hickman, and they were suprised to hear some mother calling out for her child 'Raistlin' when they were at a petting zoo. Laura just had to stop and ask rhetorically "Why? Why would you name your child after one of our characters?"

    Damnit. That's the name I had picked out for my kid!

    I guess I will have to go back to my other choices of: Metroplex Destro and Cobra Unicron

    That's silly. Although I've jokingly stated that if my wife and I ever have a son, he'd be named Walter Disney. My last name also just happens to be Land. So yes, he'd be Walt Disney Land....

    What would be funny is if this kid turned out to be a sports-hating nerd.
