Worst Names Ever
You know the ones. They're the names that make you look up the number for child services. The names bestowed by parents so stupid or cruel that no loving god could have knowingly given them an infant.

I expect that there are worse ones out there but for my first-out-of-the-gate candidate for the worst name in history I give you Agrippa Postumus (just Postumus for short). Imagine how our history books would read if he'd become Ceasar!

Flesh and blood of a dead star, slain in the apocalypse of supernova, resurrected by four billion years of continuous autocatalytic reaction and crowned with the emergent property of sentience in the dream that the universe might one day understand itself.

And then there is Sohail Mahboob.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Some parents are just mean.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Re: Worst Names Ever
A buddy bought me an account on Something Awful. There's a huge thread with names like this. I'll have to wade through and share some gems.

RE: Worst Names Ever
Growing up we had a neighbor girl whose name was Penny Nickels. There was an undertaker in one of the many towns we lived in whose name was Bledsoe (pronounced "Bleedso" )

I was living in an apartment in which a murder took place and the killers name was Deatherage although it was pronounced "deathrige"...still, kinda weird.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

An old friend of the family: King Arthur.

A dude I knew in college: Chris Mas Cheer (He was also an albino and one of the angriest people I've ever met. Can't imagine why.)

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

In man's struggle against the world, bet on the man.
