That's a fascinating article, and I'm glad they didn't succumb to the temptation of simply posting the names in question on the first page. It was important that they establish the basic situation, set the scene, so to speak. See, so many journalists and writers these days just have this desperate urgency about their writing. They just want to  get to the point and  provide information andstuff like that. But, see, Parenting knows you don't want that. Sadly, I could tell upon beginning the third paragraph that this article was of too lofty a prose for my feeble mind, that I was not worthy of the secret gems, the knowledge, that would be revealed to me within. I can only hope, though, that as one progressed further into the rich delta of its later sentences, one discovered that, happily, each name was given its very own page. I will trust that such was so.

I also appreciated the video.  Why take the time to read when I could simply watch?  Also key to the experience was the wide variety of colorful advertisements, particularly the animated ones that pop in off the left of the screen.  I'm easily bored, and seek engagement from the many different sources.  Today's web designers seem hyper-focused on highly targeted and subtle ad delivery.  Kudos Parenting magazine for bucking the trend!

The entire tableau was reminiscent of the heady days of the internet when Myspace reigned supreme.  How I miss them.

Hebalo: StewMcG: We used to take pride in picking unusual names, too.  However, our youngest's name, Amelia, showed up on this stupid list.  GAH!  We always made it a point to pick names that were fairly uncommon.  (Given that Mr. StewMcG and I both have pretty common first names.)  Imagine our shock when our oldest, Julia (which was pretty uncommon 17+ years ago) started kindergarten... with 3 other Julia's.

So... in other words, while you THOUGHT you picked unusual names, you totally didn't. CSB.


Nah, we have 2 more children and both have very ethnic names that aren't all that common the US.  Also, our Amelia is 7 1/2 years old and at the time, all we heard from everyone is that it was an old lady's name.

Who knows, maybe this is just confirming the horrific thought that we're hipsters?  *gah*

Have friends with two little kids with the, IMHO, awesome names "Max" and "Stella", so getting a kick, etc. ...

CSB1:  Mom knew a woman whose name was "Pajama" - pronounced "Pay-ja-MAY"

CSB2:  Was designer for an online game that allowed players to create their own in game names.  Since I'm not congenitally stupid, we only allowed them to select from a list of first and last names (no text entry - therein lies madness).  So, I headed to the Census websight and tracked down their lists of all first and last names registered in the U.S.  There are about 13k last names, and roughly 50k first names (I'm going from memory here, but the numbers are approximately correct - maybe it's 13k first and 50k last).  Again, not being stupid, I forced myself to read through both lists, searching for names to delete from the "official" lists as innapropriate for our game.  I had to delete many, many names. (I don't care if it's a 'legit' name, you're not naming your character "Rape Cockburn")

/always wanted a son to be able to name him "Duncan Idaho" (Duncan's a family name, but the Idaho would confuse the rest of the clan), but, alas, no women want to nurture my seed.

busy chillin': My last name is constantly misspelled and mispronounced so we gave our kids easy old school names.

My daughter's name is Ella. And once I was asked how to spell it. Really?

Ellqah - the q is silent. duh.

just kidding.


Hmmm...I detect a fan of George Carlin and/or Tom Lehrer.

I know a couple who are pretty sure they're not only the most dedicated religious folk, but the most clever and hip dedicated religious folk so they named their first child Genesis. They plan to name the next one Eden.

I bought them a "My First Stock" from brass polish and tassle companies. The stars are just aligning for that future, I believe.

Glad to see you guys aren't slipping with your Mythos jokes, but this one is far more non-Euclidean than Rylynn.

I seriously hope little Ryleigh grows up to be a nerd and a Lovecraft fan, because if she did, that'd be the coolest name ever.

I'm gonna David Cassidy you: "I think I love you...." Thanks for saving me.

/Every time I introduce the kids, I get asked, "What are their REAL names?" and I have to explain that the names I just said ARE the names on their birth certificates. Sigh.

dugitman: Isn't Olive just the nick for Olivia-- which every 4th girl under 10 is named? Also, my 2nd grade daughter has an Olivia, Olyvia, and O'livea in her class. YRLY

Everett, Jasper, and Alice are all Cullens, as in the vampires from Twilight.  Think that could have any influence on their recent surge in popularity?

My maternal grandmother's name was Hazel.  My mother assured me that Grandma would haunt me forever if I named my daughter Hazel.  She hated her name.

Teknowaffle: Fark Name Thread!

La-a. YOU PRONOUNCE THE DASH LADASHA LOL!!

My cousin's uncle's sister's proctologist's wife is a teacher and she had twins Orangejello and Lemonjello

"I gave my kid a traditional Gaelic name that is completely unpronounceable. Fearghas. It means 'breaks terrible wind'"

erveek: I saw the name Silas on the list and was surprised because I always considered Silas to be an awful name. On the other hand,  I'd name a kid Silas before Aiden or anything that rhymes with Aiden.

"Aiden - Meaning: Diagnosis of fashionable mental disorder inevitable, whether present in patient or not."


There's a beagle in my neighborhood named Aiden - perfect for him. A human? Not so much.

A friend of mine named their kid Rafe.

Not as in Raf-ael, or prounced RAF-FI

Prounced rayf.  Like Rape, with a lisp.

Per google, In Hebrew it means "weak, limp"

Just wanted to share that, in case you're looking for suggestions on how to ensure your kid needs counseling.

Props to Pocket Ninja and Babwa Wawa for being awesome.
