Mormon Madness

One of my favorite sites for bad baby names is the Utah Baby Namer. Check it out, it's a lot of fun!

Now I don't know too much about the Mormons or the LDS (Latter Day Saints) Church, but aside from the fact that they have a lot of children and occasionally practice polygamy--apparently they are very fond of prefix names (taking any halfway normal common name and adding an unnecessary prefix such as -La, -Sha, -Le etc.) and what I call "smush" names (taking any combination of two names--usually the parents-- and trying to force them together into some abomination of random madness).

Speaking of...here's a sample of said random madness from UBN's 'best of' list:

Violin
Sonica
Grik
Tchae

Xko
Iron Rod
Treasure Cocaine
Rifle
Gatobon
Mormon Miracles
Junola
Wavie
Hummingbird
Trystal
Young'n
Vindalu
Sterile
Taffilyn
Evol (love spelled backwards)

Just so you know, Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (often called "Mormons") do not practice polygamy, which they banned in 1890. The Western groups that do practice polygamy are members of much smaller offshoot groups...
