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


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.

My google and yahoo-fu are weak...weak I tell you. Found a lot of links but all were dead.

archive.org has it.

offacue: Charmin Mao Tse-Bung: I can't wait for this stupid "unique/clever" naming trend to finally be over.

/my twins, Holley and Edelbrock agree with me
//in the future, strippers will have stage names like Angela and Lisa
///baby Stromburg is due next month

Your twins have some sort of manifold destiny ahead of them.  Watch Stromburg's diet, he's going to have high carbs and his sides will be drafty.  Oh, and it's Stromberg


I wanted it to be Stromberg, but the wife just had to have a unique spelling...

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.

dv-ous: 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.

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.

God. Damn. It.

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.

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.)

/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!
