Question for parents-to be: Is Titi a good name for a daughter? It should go without saying that if you don’t want your daughter to be subjected to boob jokes, then don’t name her Titi – especially if her surname is Pierce.
A Georgia realtor named Titi Pierce was in the news recently because Ellen DeGeneres made a breast joke about her name on national TV.
Pierce is especially upset given that although her name is spelled T-I-T-I, she pronounces the second "I" in her name as "E", so instead of titty it’s actually TIE-TEE (I think).
In any event, the joke so triggered Pierce that she decided to sue DeGeneres. The judge tossed the lawsuit and told her to “lighten up”, hence what could have been a tempest in a D-cup was averted and became a small victory for freedom of speech instead.
But there’s a bigger issue here. Namely, for all those parents expecting offspring in the months ahead, there’s nothing funny when it comes to the name game.
Researchers tell us that if you get saddled with a poorly chosen first name, get ready to kiss your career, your love life and even your freedom goodbye.
So, as a public service, watch as I provide a Top 10 naming guideline would-be parents must embrace if they don’t want Junior to end up on a shrink’s couch.
