Painfully stupid kid names aren’t just for celebrities anymore. In an attempt to prove that ordinary people can be just as cool as Hollywood stars, Tracie Redford pulled out all the stops when coming up with her daughter’s name.

Determined to make sure her newborn would join the ranks of Blue Ivy, Memphis Eve, Satchel, Heavenly Hiranni, Tiger Lily, and Bronx Mowgli, Redford racked her brains and came up with…..ABCDE (pronounced Ab-City).


To be fair, it’s possible that she was getting an eye test when her water broke and letters were all she could think of. Or maybe she was just eating some alphabet soup.

Not everyone saw the creative genius behind the name, however. While waiting to board their flight on Southwest (not to be confused with North West, Kim Kardashian’s daughter), one gate agent saw ABCDE’s name on the list and started laughing, as any rational human should.


To this, Redford was deeply offended and clapped back at the agent saying, “Hey, if I can hear you, my daughter can hear you, so I’d appreciate if you’d just stop.”

The real victim here is obviously this woman’s daughter, ABCDE who now must wait 13 whole years before she inevitably changes her name.


Imagine being this kid in pre-school when you learn the alphabet.

See, Tracie if you had just given your daughter a normal name none of this would have happened. You could have named her Lexi and just spelled it ‘Leksy’ if you wanted to be edgy. But no, you treated naming your daughter like coming up with a password for your Finstagram account and got rightly dragged for it.
