I think that adds a whole new level to the "How 'Gro Can You Go" scale.

It would have to be Elkhart, too...

mhd: Anias
/son of Merlin. Home birth. Oh my.


 Tbh I could totally see be known as "Anias, son of Merlin" around school would be awesome.

Has a much better ring than "Chuck, son of Leonard".

QueenMamaBee: I've seen a girl named Kittybelle Johnson.

Also got mildly outraged over a "Plumptious Johnson" before finding out that our lab does work for the local animal clinic and Plumptious was a cat.

Nope, not even that fancy. Kitty. Bell. Our white trash isn't too pretentious.

Link's farked. Well done, everyone.

Oh for fark's sake.

She's not even giving him a chance.

Single mother, plus stupid name that will haunt him forever, or until he gets old enough to change it legally, should he actually have enough sense to do so.

InterruptingQuirk: FLMountainMan: InterruptingQuirk: How many racists we have in here today?

Easier to label everyone as opposed to addressing problems, amirite?  Go back to your Law & Order reruns.

First, a question is not a statement. Guilty conscience at work?

This whole article was predicated on the choice of name for a newborn. We don't know anything else about this child or their parents and yet in the first ~10 comments we have an assumption for the need of Children's Protective Services, a picture of a pimp, an assumption that the child has no viable future, an assumption that the parents are stupid, an assumption that this name ensures that the "child is a failure for their entire life and incapable of getting a job", and a slew of name games revolving around cultural stereotypes.


I call Bullshiat.

First - We don't know anything else about this child or their parents parent, where's dad on the announcement?  That's right, he's farking Tamekia's sister at the moment.

Second - first ~10 comments we have an assumption for the need of Children's Protective Services , at least somebody will be looking out for the kid.

Third - a picture of a pimp , his name is La'Soulja Major La'Pimp Burks.

Fourth - an assumption that the child has no viable future http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/01/us/01race.html?_r=2&

Fifth - an assumption that the parents are mom is stupid , his name is La'Soulja Major La'Pimp Burks - Mommy's not in mensa.

Sixth - an assumption that this name ensures that the "child is a failure for their entire life and incapable of getting a job"  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/01/us/01race.html?_r=2&;

Seventh - and a slew of name games revolving around cultural stereotypes, you got a point with this one,but remember that stereotypes are usually based on the most frequent information received about a culture by other cultures.

There should be an article or two about the idiots naming their kids: Apple, Aiden/Caiden/Braiden/Faiden/Maiden, Taco, North, Doorknob, Gesika, etc.

I knew a guy whose real name was "Whiskey Burns"

No, its the information that other cultures choose to pay attention to, not necessarily the most frequent information, but still, I understand your effort to make your racist bullshiat you pulled out of your ass sound all scientific n stuff.
 
2014-01-24 02:29:37 PM  
I guess the strangest name I know of personally is a guy I went to school with.

Ceyork

Pronounced See-Dee-Auck

He was a strange one.

Oxford Stereotype Definition: "a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing", there has to be examples that are common enough in a population to create a widely held perception of the whole population, this mom and how she named her kid is one of many examples.  Your welcome for explaining that, snowflake.

MadMonk: They should have just named him Convict.


That reminded me of a college football joke. "What do you call a Cougar in a suit and tie?" "The defendant."

I fully expect to see a receiver someday named Completrius. Also I'm looking forward to the day when I meet a Lunesta, Boniva, or a Valtrexia

Re: Racism

Black people can be incredibly stupid too. It's okay to point and laugh at stupid black people.

Just don't get your meth sweat stained knickers in a knot when others make fun of you for naming your kids Billy Joe Bob Guthry Ennis the Threeve and yelling about birf certifimacates and "Mexicans" who are actually from the Philippines stealing yer jerb when you can't even be bothered to leave the trailer park long enough to get the 17 year old manager at the local McD's to sign your welfare job search form because "you don't take no guff from them filthy libruls and egghead burr... boor-o... er... bieuooor-o... uh... pencil pooshin' gubmint nancies".

Also... you still aren't allowed to say the "N" word. You just aren't.

abhorrent1: GBB: Can't be racist when we don't know the race.

Um,
Tamekia Datgoodshiat Burks

Not 100% sure but it's probably a good bet that's her



She names the hospital (Elkhart General) where she had the baby in her profile, so it's a good bet that's her!

I hope the kid looks good in orange.
 
2014-01-24 04:37:25 PM  
I always wondered what would happen if some parents named their child a string of the worst swearwords they could come up with... And, not like the old "spelled shiathead but pronounced she-the-add" type thing... But, actually intended to be pronounced as swear words... Would teachers really read out their names during rollcall? Or what if they're ever in court and need to be called to testify? Or what if they do something newsworthy, would papers print their name or TV news channels say it? I'm actually kind of surprised I haven't heard of such a situation already really, given all the other horrible names we hear about... I really want to see someone named Cocksucker Motherfarker Asshole or similar!

La' Soulja, for a boy? I have to question the wisdom of giving a boy such a feminine sounding name.
 
2014-01-24 09:46:46 PM  
How about putting a small twist on naming a kid: Change the spelling of the name by using the next consonant and next vowel in the alphabet for each letter?

For example: "Wehope."

/"Where are you from, kid?"
//"It's right there in my name."

Nope. Urhines Kendall Icy Eight Special K was born in good ol' Topeka, KS.  St. Francis is just a few streets from where I work.

A thai colleague of mine, pornsit, tried to assimilate by shortening his name to Porn when he came to the US.

We convinced him to use PJ instead.

Awesome guy.

Taco actually is a fairly common duych guy name.

Ritalyn for a girl or Adarol for a boy would be cute.

That looks like a woman. I always thought you were a guy. Don't know why, but I did.
