I like Shaliqua and all the unique names some give their kids, spelling it awful in the process.

Ha, my wife’s last name is fisher, her nephew is named hunter, but unfortunately her sister married a guy with the last name of Gordon.

Technically Hunter Fisher Gordon, even he was a hyphen baby.

uh no! Boadicea


Beat me to it. She was no joke. But shit people literally make up and scatter apostrophes in is considered normal.

"Feeakonomics" is a pretty interesting study/book/documentary.
There's a chapter dedicated to just "names". It pretty much sums up what we're all thinking.

Chances are- if you have a "normal" name, you'll do pretty good in life. This is not to say that there aren't "Mikes, Joes, Toms" in prison or the unemployment line. And yes, the more "U-niq" your name is, chances are they're going to be behind the power curve. Again, this is not to say that there isn't some CEO of a Fortune 500 with a "La-Fumunda", but that's usually the outlier.

There's also a small blurb in there about people on the lower rungs of society thinking that having/giving a more "Eu'nique" name will somehow make one stand out for the better and "hopefully" climb up that ladder, but often times not.

For those of you that TL/DR- "U'Nki" often times results in "Eunuch".

My wife works for a non profit in the Greater Dallas area, the names people give their kids are more ridiculous than I could even try to make up. We named our son Hayes, and have been asked, more times than I can count, H-A-Z-E??

I had to get a police officer to accompany me to La'Qwanda's house to retrieve one of our carpet cleaners, that had been rented from an Ace Hardware Store for one day, and had not been returned after a week and a half.

It was pretty clear, from the way that they interacted, that this was not, by any means, the first time that the cop had responded to that address to handle a problem.

I was all for naming my first daughter “Siobhan” - got talked out of it by family that pointed out nobody could pronounce it, and if they could pronounce it, they wouldn’t be able to spell it.

Would have been all trendy now.

Second daughter is Wen Xiao - but we call her Wendy. As she is from Hunan, it should be obvious when somebody looks at her...

That's an interesting name to me... I had not seen/heard it until recently.
At the risk of drifting the thread, can you tell me a bit more about the name? Irish?




God bless America.

Irish origin. Pronounced “shi-vawn”. Diminutive is Sinead (I’m missing the accents the go on both “a”s). Male form is “Sean”. I have Irish ancestors, and liked the name.

How about Bill Lear inventor of the LearJet. He reportedly named a daughter, Shanda. During my training as an OB-GYN, we worked in the clinic and delivered many babies there. Every week or so, one of the nurses would plop a stack of birth certificates in front of you and say, "Here. Sign these." I always regretted not keeping a list of some of the names I signed off on.

Thank you. There was recently a local news person with that first name, so your mention of it got my attention.
