This text is now purple: sirbissel: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Met a girl this week with three small kids. Names were Nirvana, Teegan, and Bronx. No, I'm not kidding.My kid's name is Tegan..So what's it like being a stripper?
MemeSlave: sirbissel: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: sirbissel: eas81: Tegan PreslayThat's Teagan-- and by the time that'd make any difference, she'll probably be out of the business anyway. (And really, if you stopped naming kids after porn stars, we'd have to drop Rachel, Kelly, Naomi, Ava, Megan, Angelina, Nina, Sarah, Jenny, Katie, Nicole, Amy, Kimberly, April, etc...)Teagan is a really horrible, trendy name to name your kid. It's not going to age well.It's better than Jovanka ;) And it's Tegan. And I'm not really seeing how it's particularly trendy: The internet says it broke into the top 1,000 names in 1999, and as of 2007 there were a good 400 more popular names, and it's not especially new since there've been "Tegan"s since at least the 1850s.Tegan is a trailer trash name. It's trying to be cool and original and failing. Christ, what's wrong with Sally or Mary or Jane ?
Babbs: Does anyone else think it's weird that Walt's wife name is Skyler? I mean, she's in her 40's. Nobody in their 40's is named "Skyler". It just doesn't suit the character. It just has bugged me from day one. Oh, and I really need a life.
ZeroCorpse: If I meet one more little kid named "Conner" or "Logan", I'll scream.After farking Highlander and X-Men came out in theaters, I swear you could ONLY find boys with those names. I suppose I should be glad Ororo didn't catch on.DO NOT name kids after comic book, scifi, fantasy, movie, anime, or video game characters. Avoid oddball celebrity names, too. I don't want my future stepson to come home with a girl named Sookie, Khloe, or Samus, dammit.
Astra: I remember there was an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in the early 1990s where Data was using the assumed name of Jaden. I thought it sounded rather nice for a made up name. The first real use of it I know of was Will Smith's kid. Now they're everywhere.
zepher: The little woman wanted to name our daughter Sofia but I vetoed that so we settled on Rebecca.So glad I didn't give in with Sofia.The kid likes her name and there aren't 2 or 3 other girls in her class with the same name every year.
never trust a bunny: I know 2 kids named maverick. They agree from completely incorrect families, one is a boy and the other a girl. I thought I was being unique naming my daughter Aria. guess I was wrong.
