Wait. Wouldn't Pistol be a boys name? Shouldn't her name be Stamen?

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.

"We named the dog Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho."

That is nearly the exact picture I had in my head when I browsed the list and thought to myself "I actually like the name Charlemagne".

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.


Charles the Great.  You know, Charles a dude king. Basically people were being stupid.

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.

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.

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.

The thing that chaps my hide is when people have odd spellings of normal names, then when you misspell it, they get all kinds of offended and act like YOUR the retard.

I worked over 12 years in technical support (over the phone for an ISP) and several times ran in to:

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).

I just wanted to find their parents and slap the holy shiate out of them.

Seriously, who farking cares? As long as the teachers can pronounce it, I don't see why people get their knickers in a twist over it.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I understand why websites put together these lists. It's so stupid people will give them clicks.

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?


I'd guess "Jason"
