"If you don’t want to give your child an Anglo name, then don’t. There are literally thousands of cultures to look at for inspiration. There is NO excuse for branding your child with illiterate gibberish. It’s not cute, it’s not creative, it’s a disgrace. No other people in the entire WORLD do this like black people do. Just because the names sound foreign to our ears doesn’t mean they’re on the same level with Da’quavious, so don’t even try it. You sound ignorant as hell." - truth hurts in the comment section of this article.
And the really weird thing is, it's a "black" publication saying people have gone too far, that getting too weird means your kid has a "ghetto" name. One of the commenters even said that parents should NOT be allowed to name their children anything so outrageous as the names featured.
What I hear from people overseas (and especially under governments run under Islamic principles) is that you can NOT just name your kid any old thing you feel like there. You have to have it approved or it has to be a usual sort of name everyone uses like Bronwyn or Jane (Ok, not in the Islamic countries. They have a different name list there.)
I'll be honest here: I've judged people based on their names. I mean, some names just make you go "oh my gosh, no way." Be real with me and you know you've done this, too. I would like to think most people are going to try to be fair when they get around to actually meeting the person. I guess I don't see why there is so much emotion about what someone wants to call their child.
Can you just imagine anyone telling parents what they can name their children?
