Calling You Child baby Is Inapprooriate" Sep. 16, 2009:
"Sorry if I offend anyone here. This is one of the weirdest names I've ever heard...I mean, "Baby"? You can name a pet, or a tree, or a bag of chips Baby, and you can use it as a nickname, but not a full name for a child.
"What's your name?"
"Baby John Smith."
"Dude, that's whack."" Sep. 21, 2007:
"Why is this name listed? The parents just didn't have a name ready! This CANNOT be a legal name!" Dec. 29, 2006:
"Is this the real name, or did the parents merely neglect to fill out the forms in the hospital?" Mar. 22, 2006:

"If somebody named John was to have been nicknamed 'Baby John' (like one of the Jets in the 1961 film adaptation of West Side Story), it's probably because his father would be John, alias 'Daddy John' or 'Papa John'. Baby John may also be nicknamed 'Sonny John' (not to be confused with 'Sonny Jim' - a nickname for any male youngster by someone much older)." Jun. 25, 2008:
"When parents cannot think of a baby name in the hospital while they are filling the paperwork to get birth records, social security cards, etc. for their baby, the government goes ahead and fills the first name as "baby" and the parents change it later. All in all it looks like the indecisiveness of having to find the "perfect" name has gone down." Apr. 26, 2008:
