What's up with dropping vowels???

I have come across several baby names (IRL) where the family has dropped a vowel--is this a special new trend??

Re: What's up with dropping vowels???

  • I've never seen anyone do that, but that's absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. Yet another trend to look forward to, I guess. :(

  • I am guessing this looks "cool" thanks to texting. Even English teachers are noticing more students handing in papers with missing vowels now because they are so used to txting shorthand. Why not apply it to names? (Yeah, puke haha).
  • That is terrible! I've never seen this IRL and hopefully I never do.

  • I saw this too in one family that goes to the elementary school I work at. At first I was thinking "huh, maybe they are not american"... then I met them and they were.

    Evndar (took me until I heard someone else pronounce it to figure out they dropped the a between v and n)

    and then there is a Zaydn too.

    Unfortunate. I really hope it doesn't catch on.

  • a new trend??  no.  this is poor parenting from day 1.  do your children a favor and spell their names correctly.

  • At the library today, there was a sign saying that the winner of the jellybean guessing contest was

    "Braeylnn" 

    I at first thought it was a typo at the end and that it was supposed to be

    "Braelynn" (pretty much just as bad!) ...but now I'm not so sure Sad

  • Just inappropriate.  These kids have to live with these names and grow into professionals some day.

  • I know someone I work with and her name is Skylr Dawne.

    I asked her mom (she works there too) why she left out a vowel...and she said..."I just didn't want her to have it, I liked it better without." So she stuck the E on the end of Dawne (MN). Just beautiful. Confused
