Couples Naming Their Babies After "Twilight" Characters

Posted: May 8th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Couples Naming Their Babies After "Twilight" CharactersSubmit Comment
The Social Security Administration released its annual rundown of the most popular names for newborns. Leaping a whopping 300 spots to take 485th place was an ancient name with modern fame: Cullen, the last name of the Edward (Robert Pattinson) from the "Twilight" franchise.

The name had the biggest increase of any boy's name. But the "Twilight" references don't end there; the most popular boy's name ended up being Jacob, the name of Edward's rival and played by Taylor Lautner.

Out of 4.1 million babies, there were about 21,000 new Jacobs and 22,000 Isabellas. But the names have always been popular. Cullen, on the other hand, is a rare name, which is why it was a big surprise that it was the choice of 555 couples.

I predict that as a result, many guys in school who are pressured into admitting how they got the name "Edward" or "Jasper," will promptly get their asses kicked.

(GAY) couples (with no creativity or sense of humor) naming their babies after twilight characters (so they can commit suicide in high school/ or recreate a number of new Columbine shootings in the future) ... god, why can't they just drink the tainted Kool-Aid and die in Jonestown already ?

(Dumbass) Couples naming their (retarded, mutant, siamese) babies after Twatlit (faggotty and sh*tty) characters ... then follows up by bringing the babies to The Human Centipede to teach them how to ass to mouth, while still in child care ...

(Retarded) Couples naming their (stillborn) babies after (abortion) Twatlit characters ... then dumping them in the backlot dumpster, on top of a homeless person sleeping inside and sh*tting on himself.

Barney Ross (Last Name)
Tony Stark (Last Name)
Jack Bauer (Last Name)

In the future those babies will eventually murder their parents when they find out the meaning behind their names.

Cause and Effect.
Freudian_Nightmare writes:

I hate parents who give their children names for their own amusement. And if you must give them these names, why not as a middlename?
I'm not against original names, but taking names from one of the biggest movies ever (ugh, that hurt to write) is very unoriginal and, in this case, proves that you have very poor taste.
encoreyourface writes:
on May 9th, 2010 at 4:39:10 AM

Freudian-how's this for original:

i heard about this years ago, this father named his two kids Ima and IDa ... Pig.

seriously his kids names where Ima and Ida Pig! f*cking hilarious!

I've met a Murray Christmas and heard about a family called: 'Lear' name their daughter 'Chanda'


Some people need a kick in the c*nt.
Freudian_Nightmare writes:
on May 9th, 2010 at 5:27:09 AM

@Encore: Well, that certainly counts for original. How many "Father-of-the-year"-trophies does he have? And he must be extremely good in bed to convince the mother to agree on those names. Or they really like pigs.

Speaking of horrible parents: There's an old actor who's name was d*ck Sargent.

There was a guy in the phone book years ago named: 'd*ck Ball' (I suspect he went by Richard).

Makes my wanting to name a daughter after a song by The Cure seem normal.

d*ck Sargent played Darren on Bewitched, I think.
