@Amaryllis: That’s why I change the spelling before posting ๐Ÿ˜‰ Get’s the point of the name across without privacy violations.

I want to high school with a girl named Gavina, pronounced Ja-vee-nah.  It just looks so awful.  Switch the G and the V, and it’s a totally different thing.

@Kym080412: I dont think someone would choose a career that their name “fit” into necessarily. but they do lend themselves nicely to certain career choices…..im sorry if that sounds bad but its true ๐Ÿ™

my reason for not liking those though is more just from the people i know personally that have used those names. ALL of them are a certain type and so now those names just automatically are associated those particular people and bring a negative feeling to mind. I dont mean to offend anyone either and based my dislike of those particular names

Oh yeah, Clatonnah.  I thought it either sounded like a female body part or an STD and I don’t mean save the date.

@Kym080412: It really is funny what comes out of the woodwork, so to say, when naming a child is involved! When I was pregnant there were so many names I loved but couldn’t use because of family associations. Also, my cousin’s name is Kim and our great grandmother always called her Cam because she just didn’t like the name Kim! lol

The racism comes from the stories that say “Oh, the parents are stupid so they put a dash in the name.” The article Aure posted even says that there are people with really odd names from urban legend, but they weren’t from stupidity- the parents probably knew it. My former roommate knew twins named Orangejello and Lemonjello… of course, nobody believes me because it’s supposedly an urban myth, but she showed me pictures and stuff from her HS. Does that mean their mom was stupid? No. She probably knew what it was spelled like. But that doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

I was flipping through channels the other night and I swear that one of the little kids on Toddler and Tiaras was named Sparkle.  (Anyone watch that show who can confirm??)  The mom said it was between Diamond and Sparkle, and that the baby batted her eyelashes and that was what sealed the deal.  Poor kid.  She’s named Sparkle and participates in beauty pageants.  Destined to need therapy later in life!

@MightySapphire: I think I saw one with a girl named Queen. I thought that was bizarre too.
