Today, we found out that my unborn sibling is a girl, and my parents quickly named her. In a few years' time, "Candida" is going to catch all kinds of shit at school, just like I do for being named Dorothy. My "friends" have already started calling me "lil' yeast infection's sis". FML

I think the worst part is that we live in the information age. I just google image'd 'candida' and got about 30 pages worth of infected scrotums. DON'T DO THIS TO YOUR CHILD

Is her middle name to be "albicans"?

I was tempted to google it but figured I'd check the comments first since someone else probably already googled it and might've said something... Thanks for the warning. Now to see if I can get my boyfriend to look it up instead! :D lol Also, HOLY CRAP, I'm 69! 8D

I get how candida is bad, but what's wrong with Dorothy? It's a perfectly normal name and it doesn't even sound that old.

Now I don't want to be rude or anything, but these parents are just asking to be hit. There hasn't been a baby name this bad since the time Mr. West named his kid North, or when the Egyptian called his kid Facebook. Next thing you know, you'll have a whole generation of kids with punny names relating to sex, Internet and weird fungus'.

People give their children the weirdest names. There's a girl in my class named Lukenia pronounced like leukemia but with an "n" instead of a "m"

The n instead of an m on a name reminds me of from family feud, the contestant named Punkin

78 it's because of the wizard of oz, probably

I actually like some of the celebrity baby names people consider stupid. I don't understand why they would catch over a name like North or Ace... then again I'm a very weird person.

How exactly is Dorothy a ridiculous baby name? It's a perfectly normal name that's been around for centuries...

49- She probably meant the Wizard of Oz jokes.

I see nothing wrong with Dorothy except the aforementioned Wizard of Oz bullshit (seriously, OP if you're reading this I'm curious to know if you constantly have every idiot you meet say "we're not in Kansas anymore" and guffaw like they're the first ones to think of it). Candida, though? That's like an urban legend come to life. I'd honestly rather be called Jermajesty.

Speaking of shitty names.....kanye west and his baby North West

She could always go by Candi.

You never know. Maybe "Candida" will become the trend name by then. Oh, who am I kidding... she's gonna catch shit. :/

Let's just hope she doesn't catch a yeast infection also

58, already starting and she's not even born yet! F her L

People are assholes, just hope she gets a more 'normal' middle name she can go by, or at least give her a more bearable nick name :)

like Candy :)

I was also thinking Candy. I know it's a stretch, but I would even prefer Cindy or something like that. Hell, even something like Dia. ANYTHING! OP, show your parents how the FML community has responded, maybe then they could at least begin to see the error in their way of thinking.

I'm glad you looked it up, so I didn't have to see the horror.

She could also make it unique by spelling it Candi.

Dida, that was a common shortening for ones I knew.

You don't need friends!! *forever alone*

That's right girl, people suck. Lol :)

Stop telling people that your mom is pregnant, and start telling them she has a yeast infection. Right in front of her...

at least they didn't name her apple or siri!

I'm sorry but Apple and Siri are definitely preferable to being named for a yeast infection

"Candida" is actually a genus of yeasts, not specifically a yeast infection.

It's still fungus, #36...

#45 - While that is true, #36 also has something true, as one with Candida Syndrome is prone to easily developing a yeast infection, though they may not have an infection at the time.

Siri is a real name..I know two people named Siri and they're not named after the iPhone Siri because they are both in their 20s

Also #45 yeast is not a fungus. It's more closely related to humans than fungi

#93 Even so, it's a terrible name to stick a child with.

I know a girl named La-a (pronounced luh-dash-uh). She truly hates it. Why do parents name their children stuff like that? I mean my name's Addison but it's not that crazy.

they say bulling is the bullys fault...

It sorta is..... Why would it be the name of the child fault?

I think he was blaming the parents not OP's name.

It shouldn't be the parents falut either. Its not the name or the parents thats the problem it's the bullies own maturity that is the problem.

You have a point however OPs parents should he somewhat to blame when thet named her after a fungus. You just dont do that.

Although you can't blame only one person alone, clearly some of the responsibility is on the parents. Quite a big problem is the parents maturity.

I want to seriously know how this happens. Like in all seriousness, how do you pick a name for a child and know nothing about it?

sounds like her mom is pretty healthly & has never had any reason to know anything about the subject, until recently I didn't even know what a yeast infection was until my curiousity from commercials wore me down, however I do see your point, if I was naming my child, I'd most definitely do my research

10 - My friend's mom is a doctor. She told us a story once about how a woman came into her practice with her two children, whose names were Chlamydia and Gonnorhea (or however you spell that one nasty std). My friend's mom asked the woman if she had any idea what those names meant, and the woman replied, "No, I just thought they were pretty." Moral of the story? People can be really stupid sometimes.

So.... you found out your unborn sister was a girl? what gave it away?

You're an idiot
