Meanwhile, in the New World, they stick to good old Biblical names like Ezekiel, and William-Robert.

I swear I've heard that name before on Regular Ordinary Swedish Mealtime. Seems okay to me.

Brfxxccxxmnpcccc lllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 is only acceptable in Wales, subby.

I wonder about some parents, I really do.

Has someone done a study to see if there's correlation between intelligence or education levels and the tendency to name your offspring ridiculous things?

A boy named Sue, I can kinda see the logic behind as given in the song, but consonant diarrhea?  I can only assume the cat walked across the keyboard while they were trying to fill in an online form.

The weirder part of this story is somebody has Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116.com
I'm hoping it's the parents.

If you're willing to name your kid after something you saw the last time you vomited up alphabet soup, you probably shouldn't be procreating.

It's weird that they banned names like MJ and other two letter names. My grandfather's name would have been banned in New Zealand.

His name was O.C. That wasn't an abbreviation for anything, and it wasn't initials. That was literally his name. O.C.

Seven is indeed acceptable. One of my Swedish ancestors was given the old norse word for seven as a first name.

There are a number of cultures where numbers-as-names such as "Oldest" or "Third child" are fairly common names.  Frankly, these people lack imagination.  But then there are cultures where 90% of the males are named "Mohammed" or "Bahadur."  Which is just as bad.  Mix it up a little, people!

It's been a while since I read it, but I remember a chapter in Freakanomics talking about it. If I remember right it compares hiring rates between people with "normal" names and "weird" names, and found that "normal" names are way more likely to get jobs than "weird" names.

It also found that, yeah, most of the "weird" names were children of parents with low income and less education, so a person's name probably isn't the factor leading to them not getting work.

Well, at least that one is a pretty safe choice.  Just be sure to teach him to pronounce it correctly.

My ignorant redneck brother and his biatch wife were going to name my nephew Butch and they didn't want input from anyone, because it was their kid, yada, yada.

I stopped them by explaining what Butch means in the gay community.

They named him Michael instead.

The Romans would sometimes cheat a little and name their first son Quintus, second on Sextus, etc, to make it look like pater's loins were more fruitful.

At least the sons got actual names.  The daughters were all named after the gens.

There's something to be said for sticking to tradition I guess.
Everyone in my family is named after older relatives, and they're named after their older relatives, and so on.
I guess it's better than having one of the terrible cliche ones, but it's just so bland.
At least I have a last name that few can pronounce correctly on the first try.

Everyone in my generation has been named something that's never been in the family tree before, just for variety.

I was looking into Grandma's ancestry and noticed a lot of names coming up repeatedly.  I thought my ancestors were just uncreative until I realised they were the same people.

/no, I'm not from West Virginia

I don't understand the Butch thing. If you're not into guys, why do you want your girlfriend to look just like one?

Because (A) What a lesbian finds attractive in another lesbian isn't necessarily what a heterosexual guy finds attractive in a heterosexual woman, (B) different lesbians find different things attractive, and (C) "looking like a guy" is often what happens when a woman doesn't go out of her way to "look like a woman" (i.e., fit your preconceived notion of what a woman should look like).  It's also (D) a much less time-consuming and work-intensive look to pull off.

One of the best parts about being a lesbian is not having to give a crap what men (or heterosexual women) think we should look or act like.
