Hyjamon: 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.


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.

*checks profile*

Oh.

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

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

TuteTibiImperes: flucto: LOL @ Vanellope

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.

THe only famous Teagan I know had a ridiculously spoiled nephew who allowed a demon to come into the world...

/surely NOT obscure

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.
