I call these 'gourmet names'. it seems the parents want to really signal their kid is special. lame as shit. one of my top pet peeves
Drank my money on a red roulette, that's a ride I can't refuse

Many years ago I played softball with young men -- late teens, early 20s -- whose children-of-the-60s parents named them after mythological gods.
Can't remember all of them, but one was named Zeus.
Seems like quite a load to put on a kid.

I want to hear about someone naming their kid "Lleh." (It's pronounced Leah!)
Location: Mumbai, India
Oh good golly. Too much. I dont know what people are thinking when they do that.
I tried to convince my wife to name our kids so that the initials spelled something. My fav, William Alexander H(my last name) W.A.H. That would have been awesome.
My cousin Gary Olivier D(his last name) G.O.D. Freaking awesome.
But tMrs would have nothing to do with that.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
My first born will be named Mark Dan Tony Oh Allen. copyright
Old people gonna be old. There is nothing wrong with change people. A little variety okay by me from the traditional John, James, Mary etc.
My nephews names are Tristan, Quentin, and Kaedyn FWIW
A man's gotta eat!
Luckily my kids names were pretty much already picked out. Wife has a family tradition of naming the first born son James, so that was done. My wife had a girls name picked out when she was like 7 and held onto it for 20 years so there was nothing I could do about it. Luckily it was Caroline and not Placenta(actually had that name at the staffing agency I worked at). Last one was partially named after my late father-in-law(middle name). It was a little strange giving a girl the middle name of Timothy and people do look at us weird but her initials spell out ATM so it's all good.
Just remembered a good one. A couple here in town that I know (Lexington, KY) named their son Delk after former UK basketball player, Tony Delk.
Yep. Delk. White boy too.
Steven must be a weirdo

I would call the kid 2.6k
Like Atari 2600
Isn't Nevaeh typically a black name?

Doesn't Huge (sportstalk in GR) have two kids named Legend and Ace?
I always tought those wer epretty stupid names and a lot or pressure to put on your kids. Your name is Legend and every school and neighborhood bully is looking to kick your ass.
Just remembered another one: my son played on a Little League team with a kid whose last name is Yards. Wanna guess what his genius parents named him? That's right--Camden.
He's like seven and he's a little bitch. The other two are toddlers, but im sure they'll be fine, upstanding members of society.
I'd have gone by Penny too.
He had a great mini-feud with Free Beer and Hot Wings over this.
They're going to kick his ass because of the kid's dad--period.

Years ago, we had in our school a girl named Tommye (she was cute, nice, and normal), and sisters (different ages) named Faith, Hope, and Charity--and their mom was Joy. All of them fun to be around.
This isn't a new thing, folks.
Ive got a :
All are classic proven names. Goes with my history background

Which one are you??
One of my friends (who is white) was going to name her daughter Akasha, after the first female vampire in Anne Rice's vampire books, or something like that. She changed her mind and went with Violetta instead.
And that, my friends, is why you don't have sex with juggalos.

Before you ask, yes, I am a girl.
You think Maxwell is weird? The name Max has been around for a very long time, and this is what it derives from (or Maximilian, but I think it is safe to say that Maxwell is the more normal of those two).
But I am with you on the derivatives of Aiden. The worst part about it is that I believe that Aiden, Kayden, and Jayden were all in the top 10 baby names for last year.
