@As_You_Wish:  There’s a Jayson at the daycare I work at.  It makes my eye twitch everytime I read it.  I don’t understand the desire to spell names so funky.

Oh, I also read that “Lyrica” is a popular girls name. Uhhhh…that’s a drug. A controlled drug. For pain.

Why not just name your kid Lipitor or Augmentin…jeeze.

I certainly don’t prefer “yoonique” names but you have to remember that ALL names are “made up”. Jaden is a normal name now but I remember when Will Smith named his son that it was seen as very strange– normal names like Wendy and Samantha were once seen as waaaay out there (not to mention names that were once 100% male only like Ashley, Allison, Courtney, etc that are now mostly female).

 

I feel like its just breeding ground for making judgements about the parents (that they are poor and uneducated) having a name like Oliver doesn’t mean you are in a higher class than someone named Latisha.

People who put double x’s in their kids’ names make me rage. That’s not even how English works, guys. 

My mom named us slightly unusual things, but nothing that would make someone wonder if she even knew how to spell. I went to school with a girl named Kayla, but it was spelled “Kylia.” No. Just stop. You didn’t spell Kayla in an interesting way. You named your kid Kylia.

My young cousin named his daughter “Madolyne”. What’s wrong with the traditional spelling?!

I just have to say as a teacher how big of a thing this is to most teachers. Most teachers I know HATE weird spellings of names. I’m not talking about how for some names there are a few accepted or common ways to spell it, I’m talking about that list of names and parents throwing in random letters just for the hell of it. It is so irritating as a teacher to constantly have to check the spelling when marking things or sending notes home, or to try and teach that poor child to write their own name. 

Also on another note, I have a pretty normal name with common spelling that is not as common in Australia and growing up my name NEVER was on any name products like the drink bottles, badges etc and I hated this, I would check every time and get upset when it wasnt there. And now I think I still resent my name

@MrsPadlock2B:  As a teacher, I don’t hate kids’ names that aren’t spelled normally.  Instead, I make it part of my job to remember how to spell and pronounce their names.  Unfortunately, students are CONSTANTLY expressing their amazement at my ability to remember/pronounce their names.  This makes me think that no one else bothers.  Perhaps you could help your colleagues change their attitudes?  The kids didn’t choose those names…it was their parents.
