Some more examples of how selfish parents inflict their personal interests on children when naming them.

Parents Name Their Newborn Daughter 'Hashtag'

Parents Name Their Son ESPN

the “curse” of individualism

maybe there is some hostility toward traditional American values by some groups that feel oppressed by them.

Thanks to ‘exotic’ names a certain race uses, we can identify the perps even though the police report refuses to name them due to PC.

This has gone on throughout history. The insecure and dull-witted all feel the need to stand out and be different; and consequently, end up copying, or even worse, trying to one-up each other.

I first consciously observed this in college back in the days of the proto-goth, when (primarily female) liberal arts majors would don black clothing and paint their fingernails black in order to "be different." Eventually many of them all tried to be different and ended up looking alike. As a corrolary to this, I noted that the most truly unique and interesting people tended to dress and appear rather normal by comparison.

I suspect a similar thing goes on when dullard parents name their children.

The Bible has some real doosies for names so giving the child a Bible name can result in just as much of a oddity as any "trendy" name can.

Try having Kerenhappauch as a name and you can quickly see the problem.

Best to give the child one "exotic" name if that is your bent and one "common" name that they can use if they wish.

This is nothing but hatred of the children. When a child cannot be legally killed, the parent give him a name ugly enough to kill his spirit.

Why do the priests agree to baptize under such names?

My sister used to work at a “downtown” hospital. One mother said her daughter’s name was “Pay-jah-may”.

“How do you spell that?” my sister asked.

“P-A-J-A-M-A”.

If they hate it so much, how come all the names in the NFL and in your own sphere of life have stupid names?

Actually this isn’t just a black problem. Everyone is being pretentious. Blacks do it by coming up with ridiculous made-up names. Whites do it by re-spelling normal names abnormally and using previously totally obscure Irish names.

They are all obnoxiously pretentious. My boy is just George.

rule of thumb, the sillier the name,(white OR black) the more they will cost the welfare system...

I think creative naming is a part of southern culture to a degree, adopted and imported by the AA community. The problem with it as I see it is that there is no one to identify with, no sense of belonging, no continuity. When you are named after a father or uncle, mother or auntie whom you know, love and and respect, it matters.

To illustrate, adolescent psychiatrist offices are filled with rootless white Jasons and Jareds and Justins, none of whom have any known relative with those names.

My all time favorite has to be Aquanetta. I have seen this name twice. Once as a Marine when my SgtMaj sent out an e-mail to all the unit’s SNCOs congratulating SSgt Jones for the birth of his daughter Aquanetta. The second time I saw it was on one of those house flipping shows. One of the prospective buyers was named Aquanetta.

Everyone here who hates anything other than standard names realizes that there are many countries that have actual laws about baby naming? I know people who were given a list of names at the birth of their child and required to pick one.

I suppose this is one freedom you would all like to see go away? Quite frankly for a bunch of freedom lovers some of you don’t seem to embrace it like you claim.

I remember hearing from a black comic, can’t remember his name, he commented that he doesn’t understand why black mothers gives their kids such awful names, he cited, “Advil”, Excedrin and some other nonsensical names. He got a good laugh at the expense of his fellow blacks but I guess he was truly puzzled by their choices.

Funny, when you go to the article at the link, the first name on the right-hand column of other writers is “TA-NEHISI COATES.” It’s a male. Or, someone who looks masculine. You never can tell these days.
