Isn't Mogwi what Gizmo from Gremlins was?? What kind of name is that for a baby ???

I came across a old school mate that is expecting and the babies name will be Mogwi I thought they were joking and I made a comment back then realized they were SERIOUS . They are white so they aren't a different race.

  • I guess it sounds like a non american name and that's what she meant even though ALOT of white people have odd names that aren't concidered "white".

  • i guess i am a little partial i have two mixed kids and when people throw race into things for no reason it annoys me. i mean its the name she is referring to not the race right.

  • Ignorant much? Who the hell cares? It isn't your kid. Get over yourself. And nice racist way to frame a question.

  • Oh come on?...are you ladies THAT sensitive? She wasn't trying to offend. She was commenting on the name and she knew that someone would ask if they were from another country and it might be an appropriate name there but odd for an American, so she was just saying that they were white (meaning not from another country) and it was odd. Give her a break, she wasn't being mean. So freakin insecure!

  • The Gremlins are Mogwai. Perhaps the name means something else since the spelling is not the same?
