Lots of good classical Greek names there. Beats the hell out of all the Aiden/Jayden/Brayden/Caydens.

Reading that entire article made me change my mind about being sorry that she miscarried.

Everest: Everett is a great name, but if you want something not so common, Everest makes a great name too. Plus, your kid gets to be named after the highest mountain on the planet - and that's pretty darn cool.

Don't make me come up there, Kilamanjaro! KILAMANJAROOOOOOOO!1!

Good. Fark bible names.

I prefer Chomolungma.

A woman I know named her baby daughter Persephone.

Cool, cool. Reminds me of these kids I went to school with. Twins named Lamonjelo and Oranjalow. Get it? Crazy stuff man, crazy. And this one girl my friend's buddy dated in college? Her name was Chlamydia on account of her mom had seen it on a poster and thought it sounded pretty. HA! There are sure some dumb people out there, man, some dumb people.

If you had twins you could name them after both peaks.
 
2014-03-13 01:54:32 PM  
We're actually naming our son Montezuma so that he won't be bullied in school. Well, he might be bullied once, but not again after people experience his revenge.

Then I'd have to rename my wife's breasts.

"Glory"

Sure, Glory won't get much bullying in high school, no problem.

Make sure her middle name is "Hole"
 
2014-03-13 02:22:58 PM  
Name my kid Everest?  I don't want him to know where he was conceived!

/not really.  I don't have to be at the gym in 26 minutes, either.

Hi there, Purse-a-phone!  Good to see you, Cordless!
 
2014-03-13 02:23:42 PM  
DNRTFA but if you name your kid "oh for farks sake" then you deserve a kick in the crotch.
 
2014-03-13 02:23:43 PM  
Actually.  Done in 2.  Fark strokes my sick sense of humor.
 
2014-03-13 02:24:00 PM  
Naming your daughter Persephone seems a bit... ominous. Better hope she doesn't like pomegranate.
 
2014-03-13 02:26:32 PM  
i can't wait for all the Skylers to come of age ...
 
2014-03-13 02:26:53 PM  
My vote is for Katniss....surprised it isn't on the list.
 
2014-03-13 02:26:57 PM  
Persephone is the only one on that list that I actually like. Who wouldn't want to be named after the goddess of spring? Ok, sure. She spent half the year in Hades. She was just a prototype for modern snowbirds.
 
2014-03-13 02:26:59 PM  

Peresphone?


THEN WHO WAS PERESPHONE??


How about 'Persephone'?

2014-03-13 02:27:34 PM  
Naming your kid Peresphone would sound stupid until you realize that you are one of the coolest people this author knows - literally, always way ahead on the fashion front, and not one bit ordinary.

NobleHam: Naming your daughter Persephone seems a bit... ominous. Better hope she doesn't like pomegranate.


Still better than Ophelia.
 
2014-03-13 02:27:55 PM  
"Peresphone"? Ah yes, the other daughter of Zeus.......the Moist Queen of Ord. Responsible for crappy signal attenuation.

/or something like that
 
2014-03-13 02:28:19 PM  
I could see naming my daughter Phaedra, Persephone, or even Drusilla. They're pretty names. But I once met a woman who named her kid "Leukemia." I was flabbergasted. I said, "How could you name your child that?!" and she said, "Why not? It sounds pretty!" I said, "But don't you know what Leukemia is?" She said, "No, what is it?" and I said "It's a drink like Sangria, you just make it with white wine..."
 
2014-03-13 02:28:39 PM  
Met a dude named "Glory" he was a really skinny guy from England and also a total jackoff!
 
2014-03-13 02:29:24 PM  
My name as a child was Jesus, sometimes Jesus Christ if I was bad.

/stolen from Bill Cosby
 
2014-03-13 02:29:36 PM  
Those names are lame.  They need some real man names like Turbo, Ace, Zone, Hawk, Dalton, Bodhi, Swayze, Bronson, Stallone... badass names.

Ok, now that there's a "thread over" post for any noobs here to study.

Nothing wrong with Ophelia, who always breaks the rules.

I like Persephone.

My advice to parents looking for a name that no one else is giving their kids.  Give it up.

Seriously, I've seen people avoid the "popular" names, go to the middle of the popular list, then wonder why so many kids have the same name as theirs when they "went out of their way" to not pick a popular name.

Yeah, you and 100s of other parents.

So that, or go all the way to the bottom and pick a really unpopular name.

//Almost named my youngest Seamus, but a quick game of "How can that be easily made fun of" changed my mind.

Only if she takes up with that young rapscallion Hades.

Also beware of Perseii.

FTFA: "Theo is actually too popular for our liking now" and "I don't want a future kid to be "one of."

Oh FFS, the hipsters are breeding.
"What are you naming your kid?"
"I'd tell you, but you probably have never heard of it."

I'd stay away from Drusilla.  Especially if you're last name is Penny.

That thread earlier about the 2 year old girl ticketed in the toy car, had the worst name I've ever seen confirmed. Za'Dariyah. I've heard of sillier, like Le-a, but never seen, so they might all be urban myths.

I'm going to name my son Agamemnon. Then you'll see.

Thread solved, only came here for this.
 
2014-03-13 02:31:55 PM  
I like Persephone and Calliope, personally, but I have a 13 letter last name and don't want to punish my children even more
 
2014-03-13 02:32:26 PM  
FFS, this is the best baby picture they found?

Hey!  What's wrong with Persephone?
 
2014-03-13 02:32:33 PM  
Ines?  Isn't it "Inez", as in the R&B singers Charlie & Inez Foxx?  Persephone was a Greek goddess;
also, Canadian TV viewers know Persephone as the name of Bruno Gerussi's boat on the CBC
series  "The Beachcombers".  Glory is Gloria in English.  The only Apollo I knew was our
neighbors' cat.  Everest? What if you believe that the highest mountain is the South American peak
known as Chimborazo?  And why, may I ask, this obsession with names a mile long - at least
my brothers and I have "common" names ("Mike", "Bill", "Bob" - me - and "David").
 
2014-03-13 02:32:44 PM  
The only problem I'd have with naming a kid Persephone is that everyone would be pronouncing it "PER-se-foan" instead of "per-SEF-a-nee".

It wasn't so much speeding in the toy car, she kept yelling with her head out the window,
"SKRIMPS!!"

Pants full of macaroni!!: The only problem I'd have with naming a kid Persephone is that everyone would be pronouncing it "PER-se-foan" instead of "per-SEF-a-nee".


No, she'll be known as Perry.

I was looking for a picture of him on the telephone, but that popped up, and I said "Yeah, that's the one".
