Do you think my son's name is ghetto?

My friend told me my son has a gangster/ghetto name and I must watch out when he gets older. I don't think its ghetto. It's Antonio Isaac. Opinions please.

BTW...Be honest. I won't be offended.

  • Speaking as a 45 yr old white woman :) I think the name is perfectly fine. I would ignore your friend, she sounds immature. Do you think she may be jealous that you have a baby? People seem to say things like that when they are actually envious of what the are insulting. I have a sister in law like that :(

  • No way is that ghetto. Sounds like to me that your friend has issues of her own. It's your child and you are the mommy so name him whatever you please as you did. That name is no GHETTO AT ALL......

  • LOL @ the 3rd answer.

    No - not ghetto at all. I would not consider that person a friend.... but a racist.

  • I agree with the second anon--I thought you were going to say some very "urban trendy" name.

    Antonio Isaac is a very nice name. Is your son latino? That's probably why she said that, since Antonio is a latin name. She sounds like a real piece of work. You will need to watch out when he gets older? Watch out for what? She sounds like an idiot.
