Utah Baby Namer Has a Pet Equivalent

It’s said that Utahn’s have a thing for giving their kids weird names. And, perhaps, that is true. The Mormon influence here has some sway on that I suppose.

I remember going to high school with a kid name Moroni. Working with another named Nephi. Having a college professor named Von Del. Confessing to a bishop named DeVerl. Hearing rumors about a gentleman named Moriancumer (though I haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting him).

Well, if you’re expecting and you just absolutely gotta give your kid some weird and crazy name that will emotionally scar them for life, check out the Utah Baby Namer. No joke. You’ll find some seriously sweet stuff on there.

But for those of you who keeps pets in lieu of kids or (so as to not offend anyone who views their pets as their precious children) as their kids, check out the list of crazy pet names.

Sparklemonkey? Now why didn’t I ever think of that?!

How about you? Know of any crazily named people (or pets) — Utahn or otherwise?

A Cat’s Christmas

You may recall that we picked up a couple cats from the local Humane Society back in March. Well, this was out first Christmas with these guys.

Turns out that our siamese, Snake, wasn’t too keen on the human holiday. But Dax, our tortoise shell (and extra-toed mutant), enjoyed her gift of catnip on the fingers and Air Hog RC helicopter.

Sorry about the crappy quality. The camera is just an el-cheapo.
