Wait, someone called their kid Vagina?

I like to see that kid in school

Damn, that’s borderline child abuse.

On the other hand, Akuma sounds good to me.

If I have a son, he will be named Akuma Armstrong MacUSA.

My brother’s name is King Kong Ding Dong, but we just call him King so it’s not weird.

I need to see a birth certificate to believe that.

Matti is no good in Germany because it is considered gender-neutral. First names in Germany must identify the kid as male or female. In addition to Legolas, Nemo is an approved name for a boy.

When I worked at the bank, I processed a credit card application for Shithead. (It’s pronounced “Shuh-theed”.)

I actually had a colleague called Morgan Stanley. His email address was Morgan.Stanley@anotherbigbank.com

Why is Mona Lisa banned in Portugal???

Vagina = Virginia?
