Oh pish-tosh. It bugs me that EVERY young kid and most younger people have these “unique” names, and basically NO traditional names. Society is throwing out its roots. Wouldn’t be so bad if only a few boys were named Aiden and Jayden rather than every one in the neighborhood and on TV.
I can despise trends if I want. Doesn’t mean I’m interested in regulations.
BTW, I’m Kristin, named after a Nobel-winning novel, no family names at all involved.
Uh, there is no Nobel Prize for novels.
OMG...I LOL’d through those!
Yeah, all the normal names are oriental.
I’m not crazy about Sinutab, but I’d be OK with Dristan.
I’m sick of Madison (who thought it’s best as girl name?), and every other “last name” first as well. That is another trend I am tired of!
There’s always ‘Chlorine’.
All names were strange once.
Named after where conceived?
Louise and Patrick are in the Bible?
What no ‘Trayler’?
I went to junior high with an Aquanetta.
Some popular redneck names around here . . Dakota, Cheyenne or Shyann, or Shian, Shawn, or Sean, or Shawna, or Seana, Amber, Crystal, or Krystal . . these are okay names, but have been driven into the ground with lots of repeats.
So, here’s something on this topic from 2006:
A few years ago at the Minnesota state girls high school basketball tourney, someone counted 14 variant spellings of ‘Caitlin’.
Then those groups should feel free to leave, and go live in other countries, where they would find out what "oppression" is. They have it better here than anywhere else in the world.
The names thing is really one facet of the huge numbers of soulless, atheist, feral people in the world.
And they come in all races.
The sheer ignorance of all standard concepts of civilization.
The complete lack of curiosity about history.
The complete obtuseness and luxuriating in stupidity and fecklessness.
The moronic tattoos, the speech and thought devoid of any meaning or significance.
Their minds are sewage, pure and simple.
Naming their kids is one way they show their grasp of the meaning and significance of an individual human life vis a vis the Creator, and the eternal and infinite universe.
A woman (race will not be mentioned) at the Food Bank I founded had twins. She told me she found the most beeyouteeful names for her new daughters at the hospital where they were born. Then she showed me pictures of her identical girls Gonorrhea and Syphilis. . . I am not kidding.
Fox 25 Boston used to have a news anchor named Anqunette Jamison. They called her Q for short.
“I suppose this is one freedom you would all like to see go away?”
Good question to ask little “Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii”? Remember her?
My own legal name is a nickname for a more formal name. My Mom thought the formal name was too long and they would call me the nickname anyway, so why bother naming me the formal name. The nickname would do. Thanks mom, not. I can tell her why she should have named me the formal name and called me by the nickname. The answer is simple R-E-S-P-E-C-T. That’s why.
