Judging a child by their name

http://www.collegehumor.com/embed/6901139/terrible-woman-judges-kids-by-their-names

I find this ridiculous, and to be honestly quite offensive and sweepingly discriminatory on a child, just because of a name. 

Let me hear your opinion!

Re: Judging a child by their name

  • What the! I can't believe a woman would do that! That is just ridiculous and horrible.

    I know, it's crazy someone actually thinks like that. Sorry I wasn't sophisticated enough to name my children Maximillion, Poppy and India. Ha.

    And you. You are hilarious. I was lurking on 1st tri, because I'm cool like that, and I literally woke my child I laughed so hard at some of the things you said to the weed smoker.

  • Yes, North West. Poor kid! This woman is wacko and her kid might have a wonderful upper class name but I bet they turn out to be totally wacko bc their mom is so judgmental!

  • I liked how she said she didn't like names named after places and her kid's name is India.

  • Why is she picking on Tylers? I had several Tylers in my classes and they were always good kids. Now Evans and Justins on the other hand.....j/k ;) This woman is a piece of work!

    Definitely!

    Word. I feel as though it's our responsibility to name our children non-ridiculous names. Blu? Jet? Apple? North? Yeah. Ridiculousness. 

    I can sort of see where this woman is coming from. Yes, she takes it to a mega extreme that isn't fair to the poor kids, but I mean, if you are a parent calling out to your child named LaFawnduh, you can sort of guess what kind of rearing the child has had and how they're going to behave. I do not advocate limiting your child's friends based on their assumed social status and assumed behavior though. You have to go on actual experience. I think this biitch be cray cray.

    I loved the part when she gets called an insufferable snob.  I don't understand how a person can be so narrow-minded and judgmental.  She's stupid to say that she hates geographical names and named her daughter India.  What a damn idiot.  I got halfway through the video and had to stop watching.

    Off to visit 1st tri...

    DS has a girl in his class named Just.ys. I tried not to judge, but when I met the mom, I knew I was right. She was wearing leopard print leggings, an off the shoulder purple and black shirt, and a Victoria's Secret bra. She was also about 5ft3in and a size 16. I'm a size 16 and would never ever ever. DS says the little girl is nice, but he doesn't play with her.

  • I could see certain situations where it could be much harder for someone with a less traditional name.  Take for example, someone was on trial for a crime and was hiring a defense attorney.  Would you prefer to have Michael Smith representing you or North/Apple/Just.ys/Keke/etc. Smith? 

    Honestly, I feel bad for the kids that are given unusual names, and just hope that they have a middle name that they could use if they choose and uber conservative/professional career, and wanted to.

    Agree. I ran into a couple just this past weekend who named their children some interesting names and I just shook my head.

    Do I judge kids with goofy names? No. Do I judge their parents for naming them so? Yes. I had a kid in my program whose name was Sir Tyler...not just Tyler...Sir Tyler. We couldn't even shorten it either! Mom always called him Sir Tyler. Give your kid a chance!

    My goofy little love. I love you Alexandra Marie.
