    I like the name Lego, it`s a nice name for a boy I think. Just better hope it`s not popular when he grows up.

    after reading the Wentz-Simpson story about them naming their baby Bronx Mowgli, this one mildy shocked me. Shocked, still, nonetheless.

    Elvis is gender neutral? Like, wtf? Are you f`ing serious? These parents, whose names are rather simple and common (not to mention gender appropriate) are giving their kids a nightmare for a name...what did the child do to deserve this? O.O

    actually, a girl named elvis isn´t a big deal. Lego is pretty nice too.

    And clearly, being named metallica or Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 would be awesome.

    Besides, if you don´t want those names to be your spoken name, you don´t have to.

    I know people with middle names like Viking and such.

    "using your innocent newborns life to stand up against a law... way to go, parents"

    Exactly, exactly.

    But eh, if this is the biggest issue in politics - they`ve no problems with the economy and other social factors, so thanks to human habit of hating their government`s policies, they start nitpicking - this probably is a good thing. In a way.

    I ain`t high biacheeez. Imah chargin` mah lazer.

    I`m drunk. SADLY.
    drank crazy much yesterday and I`m still drunk as a beerkite. no one of you cares, but imah gonna tells you anyways.
    got home at about 06:30. thing is I don`t remember how I got home. I have a big mark on my right leg, and I just realized I tried to jump skate a lying bike, and failed epicly.
    then I think I tried to lay a fat chick but I manned the harpoons. then after that, its all blank. for all I know, I could have been raped, but my anus is intact so I made an educated guess that I didn`t.
    this morning I haven`t done anything productive. i terrorised my ex a little, that was kinda fun, gonna be awkward lather, but who cares.
    im still waiting for my basic motorfuncions to normalize so I can hold something without looking like Michael J Fox.
    so, all in all, pretty nice weekend.


    and I`m swedish. daim right

    Some of the names they are fighting actually arent that bad. And if Elvis hadnt been a famous singer, would there really be questions over a girl being named Elvis. I mean, theres Guys named Lindsey and Girls named Harley. They grow up just fine. So Lego and Elvis really arent that bad.

    However, I`m still confused at how that retarded mash of letters is pronounced Albin......

    Wait, there`s a law saying that if the name is embarrassing you can`t name your baby that? How the f*ck do they determine what "embarrassing" is!? There`s no way to quantify that. It`s completely opinionated.

    That`s a dumbass law.

    Pfft, these swedes are being retarded about naming of children. Lego is a perfectly acceptable name. I mean come on, Norse mythology has a bunch of gods named Odin and Thor and Freida... what makes those names acceptable, but names like Lego, not? or is naming your child after a god also not allowed? Because I really want to name my kid "God"

    As for Elvis for a girl, I like it... I know a girl named Raymond, and she is not at all embarrassed by it.

    I think naming oyur kid "God" is a little blasphemous. It`s apparently okay to name your child "Jesus", however.

    Imagine life as someone named Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116...
    Doctor with the birth certificate: "ARGH! I ran out of room! Again!"
    First day of school: "Is Bur-fix-minpick-ull..." "IT`S PROUNOUNCED `ALBIN`!"
    Applying to take the SAT or a credit card: "Please supply your full given name:" "You have got to be f***ing kidding me..." and the list goes on.

    Lego is just an ugly name-why would you want to call your child that?

    But I have no problem with Elvis for a girl. It`s cute in my opinion.

    I`m undecided on Metallica though. It`s a bit like the name Jessica.

    Stupid Swedes. But I`m just saying that because I`m a Finn. :)

    I think Lego is a cute name, Elvis is okay, even for a girl, but Metallica? I guess it would be okay if they weren`t trying to name the kid after the band. I sort of agree with the law, though, because your child is going to get teased for life, all becuase the parents had a stupid sense of humour.
