Man Names Daughter After Car

by in Crazy Parents, Mercedes SLK

A Romanian luxury car enthusiast has named his daughter SLK after the Mercedes model.

The man, from Chisinau Cris in Arad county, reportedly surprised staff at the register’s office with the name.

Ica Mladin, the head of the local register’s office, said: “This man walked into the office and said he wanted a birth certificate on the name SLK Caldarar.

“We found that very odd and tried to make him change his mind.”

But the father insisted, saying he loves cars and if the baby had been a boy he would have been named BMW.

Mr Caldarar said: “The SLK is one of the most famous models of the Mercedes class; it’s expensive and beautiful.

“It I had had a boy, I would have named him BMW because this car’s hot and runs very fast.”

This man obviously has an issue with status. Why doesn’t he just tattoo his annual income on her arm?

You have children so that you can teach them all the great things about the world, not so that they can extend your ego.

Kids have enough things to deal with in life. Giving them a crappy name just makes things worse right from the get go.
