We love imagining what we would name our future children.

But sometimes that name...isn't the best thing we could have given them.

And they have to live with those consequences...not us.

Thanks Terry

"The Carter parents were a quiet and respectable Lancre family who got into a bit of a mix-up when it came to naming their children. First, they had four daughters, who were christened Hope, Chastity, Prudence, and Charity, because naming girls after virtues is an ancient and unremarkable tradition. Then their first son was born and out of some misplaced idea about how this naming business was done he was called Anger Carter, followed later by Jealousy Carter, and Covetousness Carter. Life being what it is, Hope turned out to be a depressive, Chastity was enjoying life as a lady of negotiable affection in Ankh-Morpork, Prudence had thirteen children, and Charity expected to get a dollar's change out of seventy-five pence–whereas the boys had grown into amiable, well-tempered men. -Terry Pratchett

One Letter To Disaster

One of my coworkers read the most chosen child names in 2019 for my country out loud the other day and one of the most popular girl names was ‚Dilda'. Wild guess why that's a bad idea.

"Kitty".

My friend teaches a child who's probably below 10 years old and her name is "Kitty". Like damn why didn't they just name her "nice southern lady with a thick cigarette voice who is a bit of a hard a** but a damn good waitress at the 24-hour diner".

Loser

Do not name your kid loser even if Loser Lane was successful

Poor Desi

Yes, there should be a lot to think about when choosing a name for your baby coz it's not just the name itself, it's also the meaning of the name. Thus, a terrible name for a baby girl is, for instance,

Desdemona

And not coz the Shakespearean character with the same name was murdered by her husband, Otello, but coz this Greek name means 'of the devil', 'ill-fated one' and 'misery'.

Looking Kinda Dumb With Her Finder And Her Thumb

Any name where the parent thinks they're being clever or original with initials. One of my college profs named his kid to have all L's as their initials like everyone else in the family and I was just thinking "Wow, most of the time people just kinda trust that they're children will gain a personality rather than just making them the 'kid with all Ls like the rest of the family'".

One of my students has all A's as his initials and he kinda hates it.

The amount of frivolous personal complaints seems to have hit new levels.

Whether it's complaints from co-workers or customers, nonsense is nonsense. The things I've heard people complain about in the workplace boggles my mind.

"Your smile isn't bright enough."

"I didn't feel appreciated."

"The color of your shirt is too loud."

"Your name is offensive."

Redditor InfiniteCalendar1 wanted to hear about some of the drama that's been thrown people's way, so they asked:

"What is the most ridiculous thing someone has filed a complaint against you or someone you know about?"

Death is coming for all of us.

I hate that fact about life, so I do my best to ignore it. But I know it's there. So every once in a while I can't help but wonder about it.

My biggest hope is the end is quick and painless, but some warning would be nice, so I have time to do a few things.

I often ponder what that list of "things" would entail if I was given a warning.

And what if that ending was coming fast? How do you sufficiently spend a few hours wrapping up a life?

Redditor Valleygawd wanted to hear about how we would spend those final, precious moments by asking:

"You have 24 hours left alive, what do you do for your last day on earth?"
