    I judge the parents, but not the kids.

    I don’t care if the kid is named Doodysquat, it’s not going to change whether my future kid can play with them. You can come from any background, including abusive, and be a great person. I will judge each person on their own merits, not their parents’. And teach my children to do the same.

    But I would side-eye Doodysquat’s parents for sure.

    No, not the kids themselves, but maybe the parents. 

    I met a “Niveah” (sic), and mom proudly announced it was “Heaven spelled backwards!!”.  Definitely some judgement one someone who doesn’t even spell check their kid’s name before committing.

    I judge the name and maybe the parents, but not the kid. The kid had nothing to do with what name they were given.

    I know someone who changed their name as a teen to make his full name sound like a certain brand.  I judged him for it.

    only if it ‘s one of those strange made up names like waquandra or ampherny…I much more appreciate traditional names, be they foreign or domestic. I can aprecieate Pablo, Li, Natasha, or Mary…maybe I’m just and old fuddy duddy.

    I only judge if the name is like oh I don’t know like North West… Roll the eyes.

    I’ll admit that I judge the crap out of the parents… I mean most names are fine, but someone I know called her daughter Tequila after her favourite tipple, and I was horrified on behalf of the poor kid.

    @Chrysoberyl:  I’d be heading to the courthouse to legally change that sucker!

    @Chrysoberyl: “If you and I had the same qualifications.. which one of us is more likely to be picked for a job interview?”

    this reasoning is simply not true.

    i know plenty of people with unusual names (incuding myself) and it has never prevented us from anything

    I’ll judge parents who give their kids weird or new-agey names just to be different.  North West’s a good example.


    I’ve noticed personality trends in people with certain names, and if I meet someone with that name I’ll take that with a grain of salt.  For example, A LOT of Davids I know are troublemakers, I’ve found most Marks to be likeable, and I’ve known a lot of slutty Katies.

    That woman is a fucking nut job hose beast. 

    The part where they say ‘but your daughters name is India’ is awesome, I wish they pushed that point much further than they did. Either way, there are very few names I would judge, the only example I can think of is Chardonnay. That is just tackalicious.
