I think I know where the urban legends about black names (Female, Placenta, Nosmo King, ect) come from. They're Mormon names. But most people don't know that, so they get attached to blacks instead.

Truth is stranger than fiction here! (My mormon friends all seem to gravitate to normal baby names thank God!)

I know silly pagan folks who name their kids sort of normal names. My favorite Hippie name is Sunshine. Little brain function and the politics are a bit obvious!

[How would you like to be named after your birth order?]

Just like everyone who's anyone in ancient Rome: Quintus, Sixtus, Septimus, Octavian, Decimus

... Maybe I'll name the next baby Septimus!

I know a couple who named their first baby girl "Celeste Jewel" (celestial, if you say it fast enough).

"Are those your real names?"

LOL!

No for me. I use the names of characters from movies I like for online aliases. (so can you guess where Grig comes from without checking the IMDB?)

I have no Utah ancestry at all and this name thing is one of many reasons I pray I never have to move to Utah (no offense meant Utah Girl).

My wife actually has an ancestor who lead a group away from the church right after Joseph was killed, so she does have relatives that live there, but I don't think any of her ancestors actually grew up there. Her names in her family are normal.

For our kids the first names are very normal, although in some cases the spelling is one of the less common (but not totaly invented by us) form. We use a first names of one of our own parents or siblings for the middle name.

My last name is sometimes a pain. It's Danish, but most people think it's from the French (especial where I am now) and then totaly spell and say it wrong.

Well, I'm Bob, and my siblings are Don, Sue, Christine, and other "normal" names, but we were raised in California.

My wife's brothers' kids are true-born Utahn, though. Tandishea, Shylar Jake, Trista, Joss, Bo, Brock, Tanisha, Tyrell, and several others...

The person I sent it to doesn't like to talk poitics so I only sent the article text.

I'm as amused by this as any of you and often poke fun at 'Utah Mormons' who are a different breed than the rest of us Mormons IMHO.

Well you could always name a girl after one of the numerous wives of Joseph and Brigham..(I know there is some cross over there) ..Catholics always name their children after saints...and if there were ever saints" These women were for putting up with them

Yeah, that's a good idea. You could name your daughters 'Number 1', 'Number 2', ..., 'Number 48'.

UG has a normal name, I find this amusing if you were to read the ward directoty for manhattan various wards you would see normal names for those coming from Utah for school or work! In the past 21 years I have not seen names like these! Who are these folks?

LOL. How would you know whether "16" (for example) was named after one of JS or BY's wives?

Hmmm.

Good point.

Might not be a problem if '16' was one that was married to them both.

Except she might be 16 to one and 3 to the other (for example).

Didn't think about that problem.

Maybe 'Number 16, JS' would work.

How about JS-16/BY-3 or in the case of Eliza Young BY-19x (x for divorced).

Which raises another problem. Are the numbers the number at the time of marriage, the number in light of all of the person's wives or their ranking at the time of the death of either the wife or the husband.

Man, monogamy is looking great!

Do you mean age?

Ideally my thought was the sequential number. So Joe's first wife was 1, etc.

I'll rely on your personal knowledge on monogamy, but I can see where it makes sense.

Does the multiple wives confusion discussion embarass you? I can understand if it would. Actually, I empathize with those women. Being #19 in the harem must have been awful. Being #1 and having hubby say either accept others or be eternally damned by God, would be hard to handle without anger. Emma and Eliza have my empathy and respect.

I hope you find love and than you will think differently for you will not want to be with out your love one!

Unless two people was hateful to one another here on earth I can't see how one would not want to be with one who had made memories with. You have to have faith! As with all the ways of the Lord!
