wotthefark: Arthur Jumbles: lohphat: NewportBarGuy: A kid in my kid's kindergarten class is Asian and named Lily?

I have to bite my tongue when the Asian "asian" parents show up. Plus the kids name is Xiao or some shiat but they chose an "Engrish" name and went with "Riry".



/You sound Southern.

I think a lot of Asian immigrants give their kids common American names because, for some strange reason, they care about the welfare and future of their children, and want them to successfully integrate into the culture they're going to be a living in.


Yeah, one of my buddies is from Ghana and he has a traditional Ghanan name, which almost sounds like one of the stereotypical African American names. It would be completely appropriate for him to name his son Kwamenza or Twumaso, but he chose Franklin.

Mitt Romneys Tax Return: mcwehrle: Mitt Romneys Tax Return:

/ Named daughter Alana

Alana is an awesome name. My calculus teacher in HS was an Alana, we ended up being great friends for years, shot league pool together after I graduated. She rode a motorcycle. I used to borrow books from her and would find pot seeds down in the page bindings. heh.

A few years after I graduated she confided in me that the thermos of hot tea she brought to work every day and drank in the classroom was liberally laced with whiskey. She said it was "the only way she could stand the stupid ones".

Tragically, she died of pancreatic cancer when I was 25. I still miss her. That woman forgot more about science and math than I'll ever know.

RIP Ms. Alana. you were great.

Thank you. I shared your story with my daughter (who likes her name).


My middle name is a version of Alana/Elena/Elaina/Illana etc. I honestly wish it was my first name simply because it translates so, so easily into so many other languages. My first name was the most popular name the year I was born, on top of being known as [first name] [last initial] growing up, it simply doesn't have an easy analogue in many other languages, especially ones that use feminine/masculine word designations. Somehow the closest my Polish teacher could get was still technically masculine. Whatever.

It's always prudent to name your child based on how much of a punchline it is.


By that logic, the name "Rectum" would be best of all.

stiletto_the_wise: AverageAmericanGuy: The thing with Asians is that they have "English names" assigned to them in school. So Ching Chong Lee becomes Amy Lee and Ling Long Kwan becomes Lisa Kwan.

They aren't given those names at birth, much of the time.

I work for a company that's mostly Chinese. Everyone gets to choose an "English name" supposedly to make it easier to interact with their American counterparts. They usually just Anglicize their given names, so Jian becomes John and Xiao becomes Joe, etc. Some of them just pick nonsense words that sound "American". It's pretty fun. One of them chose "Microwave" for her English name, and when asked why, she said, "Well, you laughed, right?"

Usually we just call them by their Chinese names anyway, they're not that hard to pronounce. You just have to remember that last name goes first and first name goes last.


So, they're Bajorans.

FTFA: one well-known 2003 study from the National Bureau of Economic Research finding that resumes with "white" names were more likely to receive callbacks than identical resumes with "black" names.

That is pretty racist. They're not "black" names, they're "ghetto" names.

Similarly, the following names, while typically given to white people, aren't likely to inspire the impression of intellectual brilliance and professionalism either:

Alexis, Krystal, Britney, Destiny, Tiffany, Misty, Tammy, Tonya, Rhonda, Starlene, Shyla, Skyler, Neveah, Faith, Chastity, Brandi, Bambi, Fawn, Dakota, Cheyenne, Wayne, Harley, Ralph, Darryl, Merle, Earl, Ennis, Luke, Ty, Travis, Chase, Chuck, Buck, Ronny, Duke...

My paternal grandmother's name was Gertrude. We always pronounced it in the standard English way (with two syllables). She was born in Poland, though, so it may have been anglicized.

I always assumed that was one name which was never coming back.

My father was born in Denmark, and my mother came from a long line of Anglo-Irish nutters. My mother decided as a teenager that she wanted to name her son Kelly (something about Irishness and blah blah blah).
Turns out when my brother was born, Kelly had become a girls name as opposed to a boys name, and she thanked God everyday she married into my father's very very Danish family and she could pass off Kell as an English version of my grandfather Kjeld's name.
My other brother was named Kai, which is a name used in Denmark, but is also Hawaiian (apparently) and is now hyper trendy. He had only met one other Kai in his life growing up. Turned out that kid not only had the same first name, but the same last name ( with a slightly different spelling).
My own name is common enough, but has so many variants that no one spells or pronounces it right. It was the least popular variation of a very popular name. I hate all Christines, Christinas, Christys, Kristys, Kristins, Kristens, Christas, Kristas, Kristines, Kristinas... This week I was buying a cell phone for my 15 year old's birthday present and I had to spell my first name well over a dozen times while the guy had my I.D. right in front of his face.

I worked with a Kai in 1981 (first job @ McD's) to, I think, Danish parents. As a danophile, I think Carsten (or Karsten) and Torsten are cool too.

My best friend is Kirsty (rhymes with thirsty) and named her daughter Mirabel.

I keep waiting for one of my cousins to snap up Kjeld, but we keep having girls, so we have variations of my grandmother's name, nickname, and middle name being passed about. It just happens her name is Henny Kirstina. My cousin just used Henny as a middle name for her daughter, and Kirstina is the middle name for another of my cousins daughters.
Tradition in my family is for the boys to be given the middle name Arvid. I think the universe is trying to tell us something with all these girls.

I didn't think that many people would immediately think X Men (yeah, I was a fan...his dad wanted Bosephus, which was close, but I liked Logan better). By the time he hit kindergarten, there were always 3 Logans...the movies were in full swing and I was afraid I had the next Brayden-type name.

At least the kid seems to like his name...I just asked him and he shrugged and said "It works for me".


No worries. When I was a little under that age, every single boy wished his name was either Logan or Bart, and would have settled for Splinter or any of the turtles' names. The cartoons were really in full swing then.

I can see the challenge with Arvid. But I still wouldn't mind it as a male middle name. My maternal grandfather was a Marion, and that is my oldest brother's name. He's not a fan, he goes by his middle name, our father's first name, Edward. My second ex had his grandfather's surname for his middle name, Aylward. That threw many a registrar for a loop. It's Welsh in origin. My friend Kristin doesn't at all mind the Kirstens, but like you, she abhors when it goes into Christine or such. Christine is my middle name, so I don't see the problem. :) I keed. It sucks when people can't be bothered to at least TRY to get your name right, barring the outlier examples from this thread.

My maternal grandmother was Lila Opal. I'd have been ok with that as my name. I got something completely different.

Not to break up the circlejerk, but I gave my daughter a "non-traditional" name.

It's a real word, has deep personal meaning for me, is beautful sounding, isn't especially difficult to spell or pronounce phonetically, and is readily shortened to a "normal" sounding (but still uncomon) name.

My point is that stunt naming can be pulled off, but it requires a little more thought than many people seem to be able to muster.

It's a real word, has deep personal meaning for me, is beautful sounding, isn't especially difficult to spell or pronounce phonetically, and is readily shortened to a "normal" sounding (but still uncomon) name.

Eikasia (Εικασία: archaic Greek for "imagination"). Kasey for short.

My point is that stunt naming can be pulled off, but it requires a little more thought than many people seem to be able to muster.


See, that's NOT a made up name. Or a stupid one. It's lovely, and I wouldn't class it as a stunt name at all. But Tam'ikyanishequa.....not so much.
