My son's middle name is Liev for unrelated reasons, but I couldn't help but think that everyone would think it was after Liev Schreiber. Actually after a great-uncle's name.

This might give way too much away for some folks.....but my Mom wanted to name me after my Dad's Brother who had just died a few years before and his widow, looking down at me in the crib, and I was born cross eyed and had not had the repair yet, told my Mom, You are not going to name that "xxeadase" baby after him, the doctor...so my Mom, not wanting to cause too much family strife, named me after one of her favorite uncles.

Aunt XXX and I had a great laugh about this when I got out of Medical School, the pie squarely on her face....

You might go by your nickname too, if your full name, Armand Hammer, was associated with your famous same-named oil tycoon/philanthropist great-grandfather.

And who got so tired of people asking him if he was associated with Arm&Hammer Baking Soda that he simply bought the company that makes it.

No, NBC, you stupid twat. "Emma" is not a normal name.

Dear parents, your kids will hold it against you and/or go out of their way not to use the name.

I have a name that while isn't as stupid as these, it's dumb enough and difficult enough for people to pronounce (despite being one syllable) that I go by my last name so much that people who don't know me well think it's my first. I would have greatly preferred a common name like Michael.
 
2013-01-19 10:11:28 AM
I admit, we named our son because we liked the name of the guy that used to host "The Mole" on ABC. I wonder whatever happened to that guy.
 
2013-01-19 10:22:21 AM
Yeah - this is so much more stupid than naming kids after people in a mystical book
 
2013-01-19 10:41:44 AM
Sometimes, movies ruin a family name. 
My Grandfather was named Forrest. Thanks to the movie, that name is not a viable name anymore, as everyone would think the boy was named for the movie and not the great man who took on 6 kids and raised them as his own.

So, we went with his last name for a daughter, instead. Rose.

/The boy who would be Forrest, runs. He runs cross country, track and plays soccer. 
//We'd be yelling "Run, Forrest!"

I knew two Misty Dawns in grade school. My mom always said they were going to grow up to be strippers. She said that about all the Destinys born in the 90s too.

My kid has a Greco-Roman goddess name and a family surname as a middle name, but if I ever have another kid I am so naming it Benedict Cumberbatch, even if it is a girl. Especially if it is a girl.
 
2013-01-19 10:56:06 AM
This is old news.

I was born in 1971, and nearly half the young girls I went to school with were named Jennifer.

(thanks to 'Love Story').


Now I think of all the kids named Edward, Jacob and Bella and I feel sorry for them.

I understand where you are coming from, but I am not going to let assholes from H.R. determine what I name my kid. They control too much already.

I knew a guy in college named "River." With a name like that, the poor guy knew he'd never get past HR, and he had to go into acting.

I wonder what happened to him.

It'll be good again in two generations. Think Ilsa Lund. You probably don't know what character that was (at least most wouldn't) She was Ingrid Bergman's character in Casablanca. If someone named their kid Ilsa these days nobody would think that she was named after Ilsa Lund, even though it was probably the most famous role, in one of the most famous movies of all time, of one of the greatest female actresses to ever live.

Hell, Rick Blaine was Humphrey Bogart's character in that movie, and you could probably say the same thing about both him and that particular role.

The point of the story is that these will be the common names for their generation.

Interestingly, I go by my last name because I have one of the very common names for my generation.

Well, you can't name them before ancestors....

We unabashedly named our son after a movie star: Bruce. No, not Bruce Willis. No, not Bruce Lee. No, the excellent, incomparable bearer of the most incredible chin EVER, Bruce Campbell. The topic of a name came up while we were watching Burn Notice, and the Boytoy said "How about Bruce?" I said "I LOVE BRUCE!!!... I mean, I love the name. Obviously. It's not like I have monthly sex-dreams about Bruce Campbell... hahahaa..."

The best thing is that the name is at a natural ebb - names tend to go on 50 or 100 year cycles, and right now all Bruces are 40 or 70.... so our kid is probably going to be the only Bruce of his own age he meets for a while. Since my husband's name was (and remains) so popular that he's been known by a nickname or his last name his entire life to distinguish him form the 3-7 others in his class, scouts, etc., that was important. We've had people try to correct it to "Bryce", but EVERYONE says "Bruce? That's not a name you hear anymore! What a great name!"

Nem Wan: Does naming kids after ancestors not occur to people anymore?


When my son was still a fetus, my wife and I agonized about the name for months. We finally decided on a name that was not an ancestor or any historical figure. That way, he would be just himself. As it turns out, he shares the name of the singer from Jethro Tull. It works.
