Well, this certainly is an original name, huh?  Nothing like naming your kid after a Civil War era death-weapon! Yay Mom and Dad!

Or should I just say yay Dad, as this has a man’s insistence and a woman’s spelling written all over it.  Dad heard the names Gunnar and Hunter (probably while his buddies were talking about their kids) and wanted to come up with something even more original, but cooler and sounding even more like a true man’s man.  The result — Cannon.  Mom agreed only if she could speel it her way.  You know, to sell it to her Mom’s group.  I bet they think it’s, “Soooo adorable!”

Actually this name is so fucking stupid and not name-like, that I have no idea it’s really a boy’s name — I am just guessing on that one.  I sure hope it is.  As much shit as a boy will get for this name, it’s not survivable by a little girl.

I am betting that Kanin is teased so much throughout his childhood that he lives up to his name and kills dozens of people.  If so, let’s hope he starts with his parents.

It even means “rabbit” in Norwegian. Way to make a kid get a bunch of STDs by the time they’re 12.

come on, this is obviously a boy’s name. if it were for a girl, they’d have spelled it “KANNYNN”.

This means rice in Tagalog… (the main dialect of the Philippines) It’s pronounced “kah-ninn”. It’s a retarded name in any language!
