And while I'm at it...


Is Opie short for something or did Andy Griffith just hate children?

Opie's parents were just way ahead of their time. I'm sure there are probably a dozen Opie-named kids in kindergarten classes.

I went to school with an Obia who we called Obie. I'm not sure where his parents got that name?

Good question. God, that's like the worst name ever.

I was curious so I googled "Opie" and got the following link...I had NO idea!!!

Opiates. Duh!

rak said...

yes, i bet pistols is correct... it would indeed be Opiates :) and that is what you'd have to be on to name your child that.

There's a kid in my daughter's class named Resin and another named Cyben because his parents were tripping on shrooms when he was conceived. Damn hippies.

Not sure if it's short for anything, but I do know it's better than Opoo.

Suze - I went to a Junior Rodeo once where all the competetors were 9 to 10 and MDH and I were stunned because literally (we counted) every other kid on the roster competing was named Tyler or Taylor. Boys and girls. Opie would have been a nice break I guess.

Step - I hope she is OK now.

BSUWG - I've heard worse. Jermain Jackson's son for example - Jermajesty

Superstar - Nice. Don't you just love the Urban Dictionary?

Heidi - ooh - good guess.

Pistols - he's just a little boy!

Rak - shame on you for agreeing with Pistols.

Churlita - that would explain a lot. Resin? That's a shame.

Catherinette - you are correct, as always.

Maybe Andy had a secret opium addiction??
