  • Names do have race tied to them. Say Jose for example, you're not going to think Jose or Jesus is tied to a white guy. Or, Laquesha is tied to a white girl. Or Gladys is tied to a hispanic woman

  • There is a cultural element when naming a child. Hirshel and Devorah are seen to be Jewish names, for example. You don't tend to name your child something you've never heard before, or that sounds strange to you.
    I agree that many names are universal or perhaps just American.

  • I think its more cultural instead of racial. Some areas of the world have names that are much more common in that area- Such as Jose and Maria for Mexico or Elizabeth in England, or Muhammed and Ahmed in Iraq. However, in America there is a lot blurrier line to this bc of all of all the wonderful mixes of different cultures here. I think a lot of people confuse this cultural distinction with race instead, although color has very little to do with it.

  • I think the names Tuesday, Winter, and Christmas are just plain goofy for someone of the human race.

    But I have to admit that when I hear certain names I sometimes associate them with certain races and/or cultures. LaNesha, Tanisha and Danesha make me think the girl/woman is black. Mark, Tanner, and Kevin make me think the boy/man is white.

    Chamille, however, doesn't sound black to me it sounds very British.
