    Baby names always seem to get people up in arms….either its too trendy, too different, too boring, or reminds you of someone with that name that you don’t like.

    This is why I plan not to reveal my future childrens’ names until the ink is dry on the birth certificate.

    @globalmargaret:  Haha yep, silent K just so that his name starts with the same letter as his older sibling. I just don’t get the point.

    Maybe we ought to require children to have ‘traditional’ last names, too, lest anyone become confused. If your last name isn’t Johnson, Jones, Smith, Thomas, or Anderson, please change it, otherwise I might have trouble spelling it someday, and I can’t imagine a bigger travesty than needing clarification at some point.

    Seriously, people…

    Just as a point of interest, here (in Sweden) the tax office approves all baby names, so if parents try to name their child something ridiculously stupid, it is usually rejected.

    @koveline:  Ok I get some of them are ridiculous to complain about and some people can be very judgmental but can you really blame someone for judging the name I-a (Idasha)?  And what happens when the names get super weird and these poor kids get made fun of because of their name?

    @koveline:  Agreed.

    By the time this generation grows up, all of the trendy names will be just as common as the Sarah, Adam, and Jennifer’s of our generation.  Who cares if they are unusual? If you don’t like trendy or misspelled names, then don’t name your child a trendy or misspelled name.

    Problem solved!

    @alyssaC:  If someone is making fun of a kid, why not chastise the person teasing, instead of chastising the parents who gave a lovely name? Kids will make fun of any name if they want to; being untraditional certainly will not make a kid a bigger target in today’s world.

    Not to mention… I refuse to believe any variation of the la-dash-a story. I really, really do. Let me guess; you also have a friend of a friend who went to school with a girl named Mary-juana and twins named Oranjello and Lemonjello.

    I work in a business where random files come across my desk and I am responsible to contact them. One day ‘La-A’ came up as someone’s first name… I called the number on file and asked for ‘La  A’ (which didn’t sound right to me anyways)

    the women corrected me…

    her name is prounounced La DASH A  

    it happened and is apparently more common than we think…

    Apparently there is actually a woman named “Marijuana Pepsi” — you can google it, there’s a bunch of reputable news sources.

    @alyssaC:     in 20+ years of working with kids, I can promise you on my kidneys, kids don’t give a shit about this stuff.  Adults are WAAAAAAAAAAAAY more nasty/judgemental/gossipy about NAMES than kids are*.

    * with the important exception of anything that sounds like or rhymes with genitalia or bodily functions
