Bizarre Children’s Names: Marijuana Pepsi Meet Krisis Mundial And Circumcision

by | 10th, March 2009

PROUD parents in Monterrey, Mexico, have named their new baby daughter Krisis Mundial. That means “world crisis” in Spanish, or “krisis”. Do we grow into our names, as Dickens suggested?

Names can say so much, just ask Marijuana Pepsi Jackson, of Wisconsin.

Marijuana and Pepsi are her legal first and middle names.

Marijuana Pepsi is a schoolteacher with a master’s degree in higher education administration. Soon, she’ll start work on her doctorate.

Police years ago pulled over a young woman who rushed through an amber traffic light. “I’m about to arrest this person right now,” the irritated officer radioed to a dispatcher. “She’s telling me her name is Marijuana Pepsi Jackson.”

Her name has changed:

These days she goes by Marijuana Sawyer, the surname of her ex-husband from Georgia, where she spent 10 years before returning to Beloit in 2008 to fulfill a promise to make a difference in her hometown. She has a 6-year-old son named, mercifully, Isaac.

Says she:

“She said that she knew when I was born that you could take this name and go around the world with it. At the time as a child, I’m thinking yeah, right. You named my older sister Kimberly. You named my younger sister Robin.

Says an aunt:

“I thought it was crazy, but they were such fun-loving people that it suited them.”

Carlton Jenkins was a teacher at Beloit Memorial High School when Sawyer attended there, and he’s the principal now.

“They could make a movie about her,” he said. “I could almost write a book on Marijuana myself in terms of a young student who’s been so resilient and taken even her name and made it into a positive. We’re so very proud of her. She’s exactly what any kid in America needs to know about someone who can truly make it if they put their mind to it.”

So if you really care, give your child a name to build character, like Adolf Hitler, Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii or Smack Head.

In Chone, Ecuador a judge who was born during World War II was named Adolfo Hitler Flores de Valgas.
Chone features people called Burger King, Alí Baba and Vick Vaporup.

The Office of Vital Records in Mexico reveals some other gems:

Alka Seltzer
Selva Alegre (Happy Jungle)
Sostenes (Brassiere)
Poderoso Melchor (Powerful Melchor)
Semiencanto (Semi charming)
Circuncisión (Circumcision)
Perfecta Heroína (Perfect Heroine)
Usmail (as in USA Mail)
Usnavy (as in USA Navy).
