Sad and funny at the same time

OK, I came across this obituary from Richmond, Virginia, about a 25 year old woman who died of cancer. That is sad and horrible, and I in no way mean to cheapen the grief of anyone involved or who knew her. But, check out the names of this family! The deceased was named 'Happyanne All The Saints,' and is survived by her brothers, one named 'Chances R Good Brother,' and the other named 'Keegan of Laughter and the Maximum Jazz.' Her sisters are named less like showdogs and more like racehorses; 'Amazing Grace,' and 'Ocean's Miracle.' Wow!
Ya think their parents are hippies?
Anyway, I apologize if anyone knows them and is hurt by this. If you do know them, give them my condolences and PLEASE try and take a picture of a driver's license that says the name is Keegan of Laughter and the Maximum Jazz Kuhn.

I got sources.
So you don't think I am evil for finding amusement in their names?

uh... no.
people who name their children names like that set them up for ridicule, and that might be sad for the children. but if the children had any sense, they'd have changed their names at 18.
by not changing their names, the children have implicitly accepted that they are subjects of ridicule, allowing us to laugh heartily at their expense.

These people are all beautiful, life-affirming, talented, artistic, kind, and generous humans who have all gone on to be successful and who always embraced their unique names. You would be blessed to know even one of them. They all have gone out of their way to make this world a better place.
