Malaise (Dongle Mailbag)

I SAW A LADY NAMED MALAISE ON FAMILY FEUD, HONEST TO GOD

1. Malaise
Malaise is a feeling of general discomfort or uneasiness, of being “out of sorts”, often the first indication of an infection or other disease. The word has existed in the French language since at least the 12th century.

“Top 10 answers are on the board – what is the shittiest thing you could name a child?”

Ding!  “Malaise”

“Show me….Malaise!”  DING DING DING!  “Number 1 answer!”

I’m watching this episode now and my husband and I are absolutely incredulous!! Right away I said, doesn’t malaise mean illness in French?! Of course, just to make sure, I Googled the definition and I’m shaking my head in disbelief that this lady’s mom would not change her name once she realized what the name meant…I mean,..she realizes now what the name means doesn’t she?…?! Wow! Indeed, like you and my husband said, worst name EVER!!!
