What do you think?

do you think what name a parent gives their child determines if they'll be made fun of/bullied or not?

  • Kids will tease kids no matter what. I named my kids what I wanted to name them. My moms friend had the nerve to tell me not to name my first Wesley because there was no doubt he'd be made fun of. He's nearly 8....hasn't been laughed at yet!

  • I' like to say that it wont, but kids can be mean and will tease and make fun of names that are different. (personal experience)

  • Sometimes. I knew a guy in high school who was named Chase Dicks. I cannot begin to tell you the crap he got for it, sadly.

  • Sometimes, yes, sometimes, no. I have known a Matt, a John, and an Andrew that were terribly tortured and made fun of. I have known a Cleulio that was superhot and sought after by friends and women.

    It is the person who gets made fun of . . . the name is just the bullet.

    Kids are really mean.

  • I'm sure Marijuana Pepsi (real lady up in Wisconsin) got made fun of a lot. And I know a guy named Dick Nailor who gets teased for having a porn name. But I don't think Vincent would be teased for his name, and who really ever knows anyone's middle names anyway? I think it's more the really kre8yve names that get kids teased.
