They shoulda called the kid "Poke"! 'Cause, the hubby, you know... had to "poke" his wife... and Facebook has a "poke" button... get it..?

Okay, I really got nothing here. I'll just let myself out.

They'll be too busy getting their asses kicked by Todd, Kyle and Tucker to think.

You know, regulating what parents can and can not name their children seems horribly totalitarian, but then again it is something they're inflicting on another person, not themselves.

Apeiron's 10 Commandments of Child Naming

1) Thou shalt not give thy child a first name that is a last name (Kennedy, McKenzie) or the name of a place (Dakota, Madison).
Exception - If the place was named after a person (Virginia, Georgia).

2) Thou shalt not make up a name. Pick an established non-stupid name. If want to give your child an "ethnic" name, PICK A NAME FROM THAT ETHNICITY. Don't make up something! You might think you're ever so clever or that you're "keepin' it real", but you're ensuring that your child will never be taken seriously (Orangello, DaShawn).

3) Thou shalt not give thy child a name containing any punctuation (N'Fume, Billy-Joe).

4) Thou shalt not give girls a boy name, even if you give it a cute spelling. When a boy's name is used for a girl, it is no longer usable for boys: Dana, Ashleigh, Tracy and Stacy were all male names, forever made a gay joke by parents trying to be cute.

5) Thou shalt not come up with a cute spelling of an established name (Brandi, Lacee), nor shall you add a syllable to an established name (LaSandra).

6) Boys names shall be one or two syllables, unless the name is usually shortened. Alexanders are usually called Alex. Girls names may be longer because they can handle learning more than one syllable at a time. If you name your child Alexis or Alexandra, don't call her Alex! Cute, yes, but traumatic for boys named Alex!

7) Thou shalt give thought to what names your child might be called based on their name, and also to what their initials will be. If you are naming a daughter, her last a initial might change.

8) Thou shalt do a search to see how popular a name is with other parents and then refrain from giving your child any of the names in the top ten. Unless you have a very cool last name.

9) Thou shalt not refer to thy child by their initials, no matter how cute you think it would be.

10) Thou shalt research names that strippers use as stage names and refrain from naming thy daughter such lest she become a stripper herself.

Addenda

1.2) Nor shall you name your child after booze or a brand name product - The Hoopy Frood Addendum of 11 Mar 09
Exception - Unless that name was a name long before the product

Bwahaha that is epically stupid.


also, apeiron242, im a dude named alex, i dont find it traumatic that a girl might have the same name. wtf?
 
2011-05-16 08:47:36 PM

apeiron242: 2) Thou shalt not make up a name. Pick an established non-stupid name. If want to give your child an "ethnic" name, PICK A NAME FROM THAT ETHNICITY. Don't make up something! You might think you're ever so clever or that you're "keepin' it real", but you're ensuring that your child will never be taken seriously (Orangello, DaShawn).


Whenever you hear names like "Shaniqua", "Shaprie", "Lewanda", etc., just say, "That's African for princess, isn't it?"

They'll be impressed, despite the fact that every father who gave his daughter a name like that said the same thing.

/Besides, if they're too stupid to realize that "African" isn't a language (rather, it's a category of about 1500 different languages)...

You can name your kid whatever you want. Why does it have to be some name that someone else came up with 2000 years ago?

apeiron242: Apeiron's 10 Commandments of Child Naming

Long assed list of don'ts that still won't keep your child from being mercilessly teased.


Seriously, the kids who get teased are those who act weird/shy/vulnerable, not the ones who are named something odd. The ones who are named odd generally love their names. At least that's been my experience.

The girl named Girlie? Popular. The boy named Pare? Popular. Paki? Popular. No one said a peep about their names. They were all confident. The boy named Adrian -- teased mercilessly about his name.

Though I have to agree on one point, dressing up a boringly common name with a bizarre spelling doesn't generally earn the kid as many cool points as having a easily spelled unusual name.

you_idiot: You can name your kid whatever you want. Why does it have to be some name that someone else came up with 2000 years ago?



"You want"?

Might be okay.

For a girl.

Come on, that one's impossible to anticipate. That's the sort of thing the adult daughter needs to think of before marrying the shmuck. especially if her name's Brenda and his surname is Munroe. How is that my fault?

I don't know if it would be better or worse for her middle name to be 'Ulrike'.

And on the wedding day: "I love you Like."
"You love me like what?"
"No no, I love YOU. Like."
"LIKE WHAT?"

And then they honeymoon ends.
