Strange names

What caught my attention in this morning's newspaper was an article about the fact that some parents do give really strange names to their offspring...

What would you say if you were blessed with the name Constant Roekeloos (= constant careless)? Or you would be called Piet Uyttebroeck (= dick out of the pants)? Or Stella Maris?

It's a fact that nowadays (some) parents have a rather strange choice for their kids' names. And just grow up with such a name...

Of course you can change the name legally afterwards, but it'll cost you. You pay by the letter you change.

Personally, I think it should be forbidden to 'curse' your child with a silly name. In the old days, there used to be lists with names that were okay. It should not be exactly like that, but some measure must be taken.

What do you think?
