Thank goodness normal baby names are still popular

IMAGINE if your name was Abcde. Pronounced Ab-seh-dee.

A poor child born in a Queensland hospital was actually christened just that.

I know this because a dear friend is a paediatric nurse.

It looks like there may be a return to more "normal" names. Thank God.

Jack is back as the most popular boy's name in the state. Ruby's the favourite for girls.

I rang my mate yesterday to get more corkers.

She's met an A-a. Can you guess how that's meant to be said? Like this: Adasha.
Yep, really. Poor kid.

She's also looked after an Eeyore. And a Kevin Ice-T.

Another nurse friend of hers came across a baby simply known as ,. No letters needed. Just a comma. No word of a lie.

And if you ever hear a mother cry "Cuntley" don't be so sure she's abusing her kid.

According to my friend, there's at least one. Little Cuntley, that is.
