why would you do this to your children?

my brother and sister-in-law are expecting their first child in august. this means that we have been throwing names around, trying to find the perfect fit for the next addition to the williams clan. in the midst of this search we've come across some fascinating names. my response is: really? is this necessary? why would you do this to your children? . . .
jackie sparrow
harry barber
sandy beach
kimberly wimberly
larry burg (think professional basketball)
michael jordan (short white guy who can't jump)
pleasant duck (yes . . . he's a man)
honestly, these names amuse me. some of them are not bad names, but given social context-they do fit in the unfortunate category.
