That was one of the more normal sounding ones on the list.

Who are the brony couples naming their kids Rarity?   Also, Kyndle, really?  Some kids are being set up for a life of crime (Tuf, Vice) or a life on the pole (Envie, Kinzington).

I'm not sure WTF is up with the Subarus, and how do you pronounce Jceion?

I liked the Mom character on the show "The Millers" said that kids names today  are as if parents were trying to make do with a bunch of Scrabble tiles.
Was reading an article in my hometown news of public housing. The accompanying pics had kids with nothing that to me resemble a "normal" sounding name, like "Steve". Time to cue the Onion chart of names, like "Propecia".

as someone who recently sat thru a graduation ceremony of 2000 kids, this trend has been out of hand for a while (seeing how the graduates are all 20+).  The readers had no trouble with foreign names (one reader teaches Chinese and the other is English as a second language teacher)...the ones they struggled with pronouncing the most and had to ask the person how to pronounce it were the names of African-American students.  I can only imagine how ridiculous it will be in another decade or two.

They don't display the names, so I can only guess how some were spelled...one that I remember was Unique Rose middle-name last-name, and since the speaker struggled with "Unique" I can only imagine how it was spelled.

Naming girls Madison was the turning point. I blame Daryl Hannah.

We're getting closer now to full circle, back to "naming" children by grunting out a set of quasi-random syllables which the parents are unable to put into intelligible writing.

Someday we'll come back around to a limited set of socially-acceptable traditional names - but they'll be names like MackEnzzee-Boo and Brahvalisho, and naming a kid Madison will seem hopelessly pretentious.

Me: Ok ma'am.  What's your name?
Customer: Amy (for example)
Me: Ok... A-M-Y?
Customer: No (disgusted tone in her voice like I'm a moron) It's Emie (with a grunt on the other end like I'm the one that responsible for her stupidity).

There are a lot of excellent stripper names in that list.

Parents should always apply the stripper test. Have a male friend with a "radio voice" yell out "AND NOW, PLEASE WELCOME [PROSPECTIVE NAME] TO THE MAIN STAGE!" If it works, pick a different name. If you've never been to a strip club, find someone who has to perform the test.

I was in a seminar class in graduate school with ten other people. We ranged in age from 24 to 50-ish, including the professor. Supposedly we were all highly-educated and intelligent, but when we got around to Puritan culture--especially the names--the whole room broke out laughing our asses off. It took a good ten minutes just for all of us to exhaust our imagined, potential names for Puritans. Of course, the remaining hour of the class had nothing to do with what we were supposed to be talking about, but it was good fun.

I'm not sure WTF is up with the Subarus...


Subaru is a common girls name in Japan, which is what I thought at first when I read your comment. Subaru is the Japanese name for the Pleiades constellation, which is the inspiration for the car company's name and logo.

Given that TFA lists it among the boy's names (along with "Charger"), I'm guessing it's because someone allowed some WRX driving, Monster-swilling, flatbill-wearing brotatoes to breed.

Hyjamon: as someone who recently sat thru a graduation ceremony of 2000 kids, this trend has been out of hand for a while (seeing how the graduates are all 20+).  The readers had no trouble with foreign names (one reader teaches Chinese and the other is English as a second language teacher)...the ones they struggled with pronouncing the most and had to ask the person how to pronounce it were the names of African-American students.  I can only imagine how ridiculous it will be in another decade or two.

They don't display the names, so I can only guess how some were spelled...one that I remember was Unique Rose middle-name last-name, and since the speaker struggled with "Unique" I can only imagine how it was spelled.


LOL black people. God forbid teachers in a school building know the names of the students.

There are certainly days where I'm grateful for a relatively normal-sounding name, albeit one with the most ridiculously ironic set of translations you could possibly stick on a kid who grew up to be a nontheist lesbian.

not sure where you meant to go with that...unless you really expect every teacher to know all 20,000 names of every kid at the school?

reminds me of students who don't know their professors name when they come to complain about them, yet they expect the professor to know their names.

that is close, we thought about rebel after kicking around reagan and noticing the initials would be REB, so it can still work as a knickname.  other names on the short list were Ashley and Oakley, with James as a middle name, but we found the one we liked eventually.

was thinking Rebel might run counter to what becomes of virtuous names - chasity - stripper, charity - stripper, hope- trainwreck.. Angel - fat drug addict... was thinking Rebel may lead to an angelic child, for irony.

gauge is a very talented actress.  I think she is one of the ones who tried to quit pron and go legit but couldn't keep a job (due to harassment, not skills), and came back to the fold.  she is very flexible.

So you're joining the "giving female offspring a surname as proper name" boat then.  Were Ashley and Oakley if the fetus was male? Or is this again "Surname as proper name" thing with Oakley?

You're family is "one of them" when it comes to naming kids odd names. Females tend to get the short stick of it because males are perceived as needing "stronger" names.

Hey, Charlemagne is at least actually a name. Of a famous historical person, at that. It's like naming a kid Venus (after the goddess, or maybe now the tennis star); it might be a little silly, but at least there's some logic there besides "I want to be different, and don't care if I'm cursing my child to a life of never having anyone spell or pronounce their name right".


But Charlemagne was--wait for it--a dude. Not a lady. A dude. Insert obligatory "It's a man, baby!" jpg or gif or whatever here.

My first kid (adopted, because I don't have a lot of other options...or any...) will be named Gregory. Just Gregory. Gregory William [maram500]. And his nickname--for my use only--will be Gig.

I like Gregory as a name. It's not weird, not just made-up or with a weird spelling. "William," meanwhile, is my maternal grandfather's name, which is good on two levels: (1) my eldest brother gave his two kids middle names which were their grandmothers' given names, and (2) using family names is awesome, but like hell I'm using my paternal grandfather's name simply because my deadbeat, loser, now-dead father was a Jr. (Sorry Grandpappy...)

I guess it depends on ones definition of 'odd' names.  Ashley is not an odd name for a first name, far as I know, and it is gender neutral.  and I don't see Oakley as strictly a surname either.  And James is a very popular first name in both our families. If the baby was male, I was liking Atlas, but didn't sound right with the last name, and to use parts of our fathers names were just comical...Johnny Jerome and James Leroy, and James Leroy Jr was just flatly denied by the wife.

for example of odd names being relative, I have always found males named Kelly as odd, but I knew two of them, and a girl named Kelly too.

Um, yeah. I've read them all. I mention MWofW because of the famous quote. And I guess because I once played another of Falstaff's men in a production long ago, that of Bardolph (the drunk). All of Sir John's men were idiots. That's why it was hilarious. The historical plays - not so hilarious.

Sheesh.

A movie comes out and suddenly there's a bunch of kids named after one of the characters. How incredibly wacky and outrageous!

/one daughter on the way...we flirted with Rebel as a first name, but are going with Reagan


Silly name for a girl. Not much better than those black people you mentioned.  Your probably kidding though.

true, but most people could pronounce it or spell it if we went with it.

/pronounced ree-ay-gaan

Hyjamon: Lets name her Rebel!
Hyjamon's wife: I have been looking at baby name books for months and we agreed on Reagan! Plus that fat chick is named Rebel.
Hyjamon: Right. Reagan it is.

that is close, we thought about rebel after kicking around reagan and noticing the initials would be REB, so it can still work as a knickname.  other names on the short list were Ashley and Oakley, with James as a middle name, but we found the one we liked eventually.

was thinking Rebel might run counter to what becomes of virtuous names - chasity - stripper, charity - stripper, hope- trainwreck.. Angel - fat drug addict... was thinking Rebel may lead to an angelic child, for irony.

but back to the point of the article...have cousins who's kid is named Gauge (as in shotgun, not wires)

considering the likely amount of vomit you'll be dealing with, reagan isn't necessarily a bad name... XD



There's 300-year-old Shakespearean precedent for female Regan, so the Reagan variant isn't all that bad.  I knew a girl named Regan 30 years ago and it didn't seem to raise any eyebrows even then. (Of course, that was before Reagan was sainted, so it didn't look like child-as-political-billboard either.)

//Hope, Faith, and Grace are virtue names which have held up well IMO

Wait, you were being serious about that name? When I read that I couldn't help but think that it's what some backwater, "Southern Pride, not racism!" redneck would name their kid. That name would only pass in the deep south.

Oh.

Um... Not sure if apologize for possibly offending or possibly being right...

That was one of the more normal sounding ones on the list.

Who are the brony couples naming their kids Rarity?   Also, Kyndle, really?  Some kids are being set up for a life of crime (Tuf, Vice) or a life on the pole (Envie, Kinzington).

I'm not sure WTF is up with the Subarus, and how do you pronounce Jceion?


It goes to show that people who can't even spell are allowed to spawn.

Nah, not offended, but you may want to check your racism meter.   Reagan isn't quite associated with southern pride,,,, republican sainthood, yea, but not quite redneck recognition....names like general, bush or nascar might be closer to what you are looking for.     We liked Reagan since it was one of the R names we liked that helps match her brother, Riker.

As far as my cousins, they are on wife's side , other names there are River and Hunter....but they are rednecks.

As someone who had three to four other kids in my class with the same name, that got annoying really fast, hence we looked for not super common names, yet could be spelled or spoken by others.   Can't wait to see how many Jacobs, Isabella's, and Aidens are in my kids classes.

No, I meant the name Rebel. Reagan is easier to understand as a name. Reagan made me think of Republican saint, extraordinaire. I've heard of Tegan as a name, but not Reagan. Rebel makes me think of stars and bars.

Gotcha.  Well rebel is still a possible nickname from the ititials, and if she becomes a holy terror on a soccer or lacrosse team, I might start using it at games.

We also liked Teagan/Tegan, but I believe that is a current porn star name and fox personality

I was unaware of that. The only famous Tegan that I know about is half of Tegan and Sara.

When I was born, 52 years ago today, the name Gunga-din was in the hat. My older sister said it was picked but vetoed by her and my dad. It was my mothers favorite movie other than Gone with the Wind. I guess I would rather have ended up as Rhett.

I'm not sure WTF is up with the Subarus...

Subaru is a common girls name in Japan, which is what I thought at first when I read your comment. Subaru is the Japanese name for the Pleiades constellation, which is the inspiration for the car company's name and logo.

Given that TFA lists it among the boy's names (along with "Charger"), I'm guessing it's because someone allowed some WRX driving, Monster-swilling, flatbill-wearing brotatoes to breed.

Is it just me, or is it entirely idiotic to have a slammed (rally) car with a ski rack?

Have you ever driven in snow?  Did you plan to plow the road for everyone else?  Let me guess, it has 4 inch air bags on the suspension?

What was this guy/girl/moron thinking?

Just keep in mind, when naming your kids, that their name is usually the first thing most people will learn about them.  They will be judged on the name.
If it's dumb, they will be judged dumb, If it's spelled in a "unique" manner, they will be thought stupid.
The best case scenario is one where they realize the parents are to blame, not the actual person. But even in that case the kid will be assumed to come from the lowest class of IQ, so again, no benefit.

If you must have a "unique" name for some reason, there are plenty of actual names that are quite odd.  Zebulon for example, is both real and weird.
Choose the name properly.

Your mistake is thinking that ANY of that was done for function. It's all done for the style of it. The car has been "stanced". Stancing is horrible for the actual performance of the vehicle but some people like the way that it looks.

Properly lowering a car with a stiffer suspension can help. Lowering it to the extreme and adding that much camber on stretched wheels ruins the car's handling.

When I named my daughter Destiny 25+ years ago I thought I had found an original name that among other things would be easy to spell correctly. Enter stage left Destanee, Destany, Destinee, Destiney etc. It's a word people, spell it right.

I'll be waiting for the condemnation from the various farkers who will get their feelings hurt over this....

I thought it was real.



no joke and it seems to be not far from the truth anyway except the hicks they often name their children something rediculous.  I have seen a lady named propecia, I work in an ER so naturally I see everything...............


.

Strix occidentalis: There are certainly days where I'm grateful for a relatively normal-sounding name, albeit one with the most ridiculously ironic set of translations you could possibly stick on a kid who grew up to be a nontheist lesbian.


I am glad my parents decided on a name thats not thoroughly embarrasing, though theres a medical procedure a weapon and a arthurian character that I often hear about.

My son's mother and I thought about naming a potential baby girl Ave Maria.  I mean, it's beautiful.  But you have to do the "hand over" test.  Pretend your handing over your baby to someone. "Here's Ave Maria"

It does work.

Personally I always liked Sorais as a female name.  But then again, she was a jealous biatch and led an army to kill her sister and imprisoned a man mentally.

/yes I'm dating again.
 
2014-05-16 11:03:08 PM
I mean, it DOESN'T work.  I don't think Ave Maria is a good girls name these days.  But at least it's real.

If I had ovaries they'd be getting all riled up.
