Becky is not a good name .. Lol at all. Please made a song to the name & It's Not a good Name. I advise people not to name their children that. At least at this time of Year.
Seriously? The Plies song is about white women and fellatio and I doubt that most people will make the connection. The only reason I know about it is because of a facebook meme where you look up your name on the online "urban dictionary" to see what it means. The inappropriate song isn't exactly getting radio play and is unlikely to make it into any nursery schools.
Please, at least learn how to spell before making untrue comments about perfectly good names.
I do not like the name Becky. It sounds stupid.
