    What an awful name. Kids being kids will probably shorten it to Icky. Why don’t some of these parents think before giving a child a name that can be shortened like this?

    What can I do more to protect this woman from this HOMO-SEXUAL, folks?

    She needs to dump that outfit.

  • Jill

    That’s tantamount to child abuse.

    HORRIBLE NAME!
    you don’t name your baby Ickitt. that’s just weird.

    Poor kid.
    Why don’t some parents think twice before naming a child?
    Remember Bronx Maddox (Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson)?
    Another baby with a horribly horrid name.

    Thank God for my name.

  • http://www.blahgirls.com Blah girls

    What happened to the good old fashioned names? Ickett???

  • Kristin M

    @ Stephanie-it’s Bronx Mowgli, not Bronx Maddox(that’s Brangelina’s kid). Maddox is an upgrade from Mowgli.

    Well, I’ve heard better names, I’ve heard worse. It is inevitable that that kid’s nickname is going to be icky. Why is it the celebrities that name their kids weird names.

    Variations in names is alright, but something as odd as Ickitt? I’ve always been mad at my mom for spelling my name Kristin, not Kristen. I actually think I have to thank her now. She could have named me Ickitt!

  • HoT PiNk PrInCeSS

    What an ugly name

  • PALVASHA

    FORGET THE NAME WHAT ISTHIS WOMAN WEARING??? WHY IS SHE MAKING A MOCKERY OF HERLSELF, BEING PREGNANT ISNOT A JOKE. BREGNANT LADIES SUD COVER UP ITS SOOO INAPROPRIATE TO SHOW THAT

  • Bree

    yea that name…im not sure about it ickitt is exactly what it sounds…but it’s whatever. her outfit on the other hand, is disgusting. pregnancy is beautiful, sure, but seriously, you don’t need to show that much..cover up!!

  • ihavenolife

    ick it so no one will eat it? omg imagine the taunts when this child goes to school. “nyah nyah that’s icky little ickitt.” they may think it’s cute now but this kid will grow into an adult and has to introduce himself in the working world as ickitt.

  • dee

    Sounds more like a description of that awful ensemble she is wearing ~:- }

  • smurf

    His nickname’s not going to be Icky, it’s gonna be Lickitt. And pray he never gets Rickets!

  • t

    she posted a blog saying that isn’t the baby’s name since

  • dont care..

    Her name’s Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam, so in reality this name just fits with her’s and i’m sure the rest of her family.
