notd (name of the day)

Re: notd (name of the day)

  • @JJMNO1616 that is like my daughter - her name is Emilia James, after her daddy. It definitely suits her.

    @jbn999 that is literally priceless.

    Went to school with a woman named Candy, not so bad you think, except that her last  name was Cane... 
    This reminds me of this girl my husband knows named Brighton Early.

  • A girl I know named her daughter Isis.. poor child 
    A mom in another group I'm in loved the name Isis and asked us all how long we thought the "stigma" would stick around.

    Two names I came across on a baby name listicle recently: "Blessence" and "Melanin" -- particularly good for darker skinned babies  :#

    I can chime in on this one - my name is Lindsye, which has the usual pronunciation but variant spelling. When I asked my mom for the reason behind my name growing up, I *swear* she told me it was a family name. When I asked again when I was older (probably college-aged) and she was distracted, she said "your dad really liked it. Honestly I think it's because he had a thing at the time for Lindsay Wagner." She went on to say the variant spelling was just because she wanted it to be "different."

    Ok awesome, so I'm named after someone my dad used to masturbate to and in order to get Siri to recognize my name based on the spelling, I have to call myself Lind-SIGH. Sigh indeed.

    Weirdest name I've seen is "Chosen." His parents: not to give you a Christ complex or anything, but....
    I always wondered about the spelling of your name. I'm a Lindsey.

  • I don't want to offend anyone. I just hate anything that sounds made up and/or inappropriately used. Paisley, that's a pattern. Henley (eigh), that's a shirt. Brentley, Oakleigh. I know children with all of these names. They all make me cringe. Then again my son has a very English "last name" as his first and I know some people hate those trends.

    And for the love of everything holy- PLEASE DO NOT INSERT A  "Y" unnecessarily.

    Or an X.  God, replacing S's with an X makes me shudder.

    I went to a super ghetto high school so we always had crazy names:
    Urethra (dead serious, her mom thought it sounded pretty we think she was trying for Eureka)
    ABCDE (pronounced Ab-C-D)
    Yo'majesty and Yo'highness (twins)

    and lastly girl a year behind me her first name was Ida, not bad but her last name was Best so her name was Ida Best. 

    That term always makes me cringe :#
    I didn't recognize this word as being cringy until I was in grad school because I used it myself and was called out on it. I grew up in a lower socioeconomic area and this word was used very regularly among my friends and the people I went to school with. Most people familiar with the town I'm from would probably identify it as "Ghetto". My H actually straight out said to me the other day that my friends and I where super ghetto growing up. I know now, as a educated social worker, that I certainly have a lot more privilege then I ever knew I had (I'm white, my parents had cars and I had a beat up clunker as a teenager to drive, we lived in a house, we never needed food stamps, ect) and I certainly recognize why the term is derogatory. It has taken me awhile to remove it from my vocabulary though because it was such a common term that I admittedly used to describe my own experiences.

    my parents were quite close to using the spelling Eryne (i don't think i've ever met anyone with this spelling) instead of Erin for no real reason.  Thankfully they used the traditional spelling.  They also almost named me Erin Elizabeth but didn't want my initials on my backpack to read EEK <----really looking out haha
    Ha! On that note, my first name and my maiden name both start with K. I cannot even tell you how many people have asked me "OMG! Is your middle name Karen/Kathy/Katrina?" 

    No, you asshat. My parents did not give me the initials KKK :|
    Yes! This happened to me too! My first name starts with a K and my madien name stated with a K. People always asked if my middle names was Kay, Kate, or Katherine. Come on, people!

  • @mountainsmama ; I saw that same article...I actually commented on it, lol.  I said...what next, little are going to name their kids epidermis and dermis.   The boys name list had Axon.   Like...a nerve cell in the brain or whatever that is, haha.  So bad.

    Literally my sisters name and our last name had a k. So we told her that my parents said “EEK” when she came out and that is where her name came from. My older sister and I were such jerks. 

    Edit: spelling

  • Best thread! Oh the names I have encountered as a teacher. Some have so many vowels! Jaiyce (pronounced Jace) or Eliyeasia (but pronounced E-lease-a).... name I will nevwr forget Shithead (pronounced Sha-heed) really.......
  • Dymind (my brother’s student in an urban school) 
    The next one I didn’t believe until I met the girl,  pronounced “fuh-Molly”. Mom was not a native English learner, and said “the nurses named her”.  
    The spelling:  Female

    No way! This one wins today. I'm literally crying. 
  • Mine was my first day of student teaching roll call. The supervising teacher REALLY could have given me a heads up. His name? 

    Sh*thead. 

    No I'm not kidding. 

    It was an Indian name pronounced Shih-tayd, but nope. It was spelled Sh*thead.

  • I saw a Jazzmyn on the news (not good news either)... my husband is the king of horrible names and I get exhausted trying to talk to him about it. Messed up unique spelling? Awesome! Boy name for a girl? Even more awesome! Random word?! Awesomer! He would LOVE "No Fear" and has suggested Mitch for a girl, and wanted Jaxson for a boy... thank god an acquaintance named their kid Jackson! There are a few normal names he's said he liked so I'm clinging to those lol

  • At place I used to work back in the day, there was a little girl whose name was LaDynasty (not knocking that name at all), but our electronic medical records capitalized all letters and didn't allow spaces so on our tracking board she was "LADYNASTY". I literally stared at it for five minutes the first time then asked the nurse what her name really was. 
    Omg I'm dying :D :D :D. The capital letters make a world of difference ehh??

  • Some of these just sound so made up it's hard to believe that someone seriously named their kid that! 

    @ngolimento That's where I am torn.  I LOVE Scottish names, but I feel like if I gave my kid some of the more unique Scottish names people would think I was just trying to be different or special and not get that it's from a different culture.
  • one from this week..Tedan...dads name is Dante

  • @sparklingdiamond that's exactly the problem.  There is a difference between seeing a name that is foreign to you and just accepting that it is just not from your culture, and going on the boards and laughing about how dumb it is.

    For example, staying with Scottish names, I would never say "Oh man, Balmoral?  What dumb POS names their kids THAT?!".  Hundreds of thousands of Scottish people, that's who. They aren't dumb for using a name that is steeped in thousands of years of tradition.

  • Exactly!  I think a lot of names I thought were weird before (maybe because of spelling) might actually have been spelled differently because it's cultural spelled differently.  It's hard to tell between those and then people who just want to be different.  
  • @ngolimento I definitely get that. I hope my post didn't offend anyone. 

    It was more about how my supervising teacher teacher should have warned me about the name before roll call (luckily I refused to say it out loud).

    the kids weren't so nice, though. Sixth graders can be jerks.... 
  • We have a little girl in our program that is a Junior. Her name is Emily, and obviously so is her mother. Emily Lastname Jr. I’ve never seen another girl that is a Jr.
