Your made up, "unique" names are nauseating

Baelynn, Brayleigh, Avilannah, Dayleigh, Trinlee, Brienzi... *puke*

The boy names are even worse! Braedyn, Larken, Brysin, Rhylee...

Not that this needs saying, but you can't just make up a name and think your child will be the lovely, independent, unique person YOU want. There a person who someday is going to have a professional job. They aren't a pet.

And then there's taking a name (like Emily)... and complicating the FUCK out of it: Emmaleigh.

Wtf is wrong with Emily?!?! Why do you need to make it stupid??

Or you have Braden (as before mentioned) and spelling it stupidly: Braedyn (or that I've seen: Brajdyn)


I'm sorry, but the good chunk of little kids now with ugly ass "unique" names are named (and raised) by idiots. The future of us adults are in the hands of little Braeleigh's and Rhylee's. And it makes me scared. I'm desperatly afraid for my future and for my daughter because these are her peers and I don't want their influence on her. I almost want to go live with the Amish so she's not exposed to the dumbasses of the age.

Little Brienzi is going to be a doctor someday.. and I'm sorry, but  I'm not comfortable being cut open by a Brienzi. Totally comfortable being operated on by an Emily or a Hannah, though!


So for all you people out there who agree that a lot of kids these names have stupidly, nauseating names... Sleep tight! And just remember that when you're old, a Jakayla is gonna be giving you a sponge bath and administering your meds while you read the paper on the latest antics of President Braejdyn Smith.


Disclaimer: If your pissed off by this post, your child probably has a dumbass name. So thank you for being a part of the problem in the modern age. I don't care if I pissed you off. PLEASE NOTE: This is supposed to be a bit of a satire. But my opinion still stands. Yes, I know there could be a bright, sweet, rocket scientist named Brianalillymae Jones... but who's gonna take that seriously??

I don't understand why people butcher perfectly respectable names just to make them 'different'. It makes you look 'illiterate'.

I find this post to be extremely ironic, being as how it was written by someone named "Kristy".

What does the way their name is spelled have a anything to do with what type of person they grow up to be? Your post is extremely immature I hope you don't raise your children to thnk that way. How judgmental can you be?
ETA my kids have "normal" names but I don't agree with you at all. Mine are Ciara Michael and Noah.

Exactly! A little girl down the street is named Madison... except it's not. It's Maedisynn. 

....WHY?!

I agree, I thought about their future when I named my girls, I gave them names a possible employer would not skip when looking at resumes because they can't pronounce it, or because it's just hideous.

hmmm, my kids have "normal" names like Alexander and Olivia. However, my doctors first name has nothing to do with how comfortable I'd feel about them operating on me. What's the difference between my doctor being an American with a funny sounding name or my doctor being Indian, Chinese, ECT and having a funny sounding (to an American) name? Not to mention, I'm not on first name basis with any of my doctors so I wouldn't know if Dr. Smith had the first name of Brienzi. Smh. You my dear, sound anal retentive and I'd avoid the Amish community if had someone as phony snobbish as you.

Depending on where you live, Karlen isn't really that unusual. It's actually on my list of possible future boy names. I also have a Kloe, Karina, and a Riley. I think some spellings are ridiculous, but not most names. If it's pronounceable, then do what you want.

Eta: Karlen should have been Larken. :)
