What's in a name?

I have read that judging by names you can tell where someone lives. Their "class" and something about their lifestyle. I don't know if I buy it. I'll tell you our names and you guess where we live and our race and all that fun stuff.

Happy Halloween!

Dad: Myles
Mom: Sarah
Daughter: Ansleigh
Son: Brighton
Future child: Sydney or Ryder

  • I think those people are referring to names like Jethro or LaQuisha. It's likely that Jethro is from the backwoods of Arkansas( with I live in) and that LaQuisha is a black woman. More common names don't stand out it your heard, but some do.

  • No, not from London. My son's name is a town in England but also has roots in HI, and my daughter's name is found all over.

    aunti- I have no idea! Maybe from the West?

    But I would also like to know what names scream my mom had me when she was 15. Example please.
