Jacklin

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on September 24, 2009

Not too bad, right?  I’ve met many Jacklyns and Jacquelines in my day.  Minor misspelling, but not too awful.  Wait, what’s that?  Jacklin is a fucking boy?!?!

Start taking karate now, Jacklin — I promise you it will come in handy.

I’m guessing they had Jaqueline in mind, but then uh-oh, it’s a boy, so they tried to masculinize it by spelling and pronouncing it “Jacklin”, not realizing that

1. That girl’s name already exists
2. It ends with “Lyn”, thus remaining feminine even by bad-baby-names rules.

Uh-oh, I just realized something. Kids are going to call him “Jackin'”, as in the slang term for masturbation. Expect to see kids sneaking over to the chalkboard during break and erasing the L in his name.
Granted, it probably won’t occur with the same frequency as erasing the ‘ob’ from Moby Dick like my HS classmates loved to do whenever the teacher wasn’t looking.
Oh, that brings up another excellent point– I seriously hope that nobody names their child “Moby Dick”, but someone probably will.
