Dempsey

I’m not damning this name in every instance, but in this case it’s stupid.  This lady claims she is going to name her child according to what hair color he’s born with.  Excellent idea, ma’am.  Because hair color makes a ton of difference in the world, and we all know hair color never, ever changes.

If her little angel is blonde, he’ll be Sylas (which is an incorrectly spelled Silas, but that’s beside the point right now).  If he’s got brown hair, he’s Draper (I have no idea why either one of these names are associated with hair color to this lady, but I digress).  Now, if he comes out with red hair, he’ll be called Dempsey…because her husband “insists that if he’s a red-head, he needs a bad-ass name.”

Did I miss something?  When did Dempsey become a “bad-ass” name?  Sounds like a pussy name to me.

If she wants a bad-ass name, she can name him ‘Chuck’.

Jack Dempsey – this is who I thing of. Boxing heavyweight champ and one of the most vicious punchers of all time.

Yes – I am very familiar with Jack Dempsey. I am also very familiar that Dempsey was his LAST fucking name. If he had been Dempsey Dempsey, he would’ve gotten his ass kicked.

The kid won’t have red hair unless both parents have red hair or the genes for red hair, and then it won’t have blond hair. Someone missed genetics 101…then again she wants to name her kid Dempsey so I can’t say I’m surprised.

I know a 3 year old Dempsey, named after the boxer. Baby brother called Rylan…

Jack Dempsey, the pro boxer, he has the Dempsey roll named after him. Beside being a pro boxer in the early 20th century he was also a fantastic brawler and bar fighter. So Jack Dempsey was pretty kick ass. Although you would have to train your little Dempsey from birth to get anywhere near his awesomeness. Two words for this family GOLDEN GLOVES.
