Your made up, "unique" names are nauseating

Posted by   + Show Post

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??

Quoting Cyn_:

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.

That's good. As much as we all want to live in a judgement-free society where everyone is accepted regarless of name, race, hair style, whatever... it will never be that way. It's human nature to judge. And you have two choices: Name your kid something ridiculous and say "Good luck! Hope you make it!" or give them something that they could present and not be taken like a joke.

Think about it for a second: As an employer, you have two candidates with similar qualities and qualifications.. One is named Aquaneesha. The other is Bethany.

Honestly and truly, which one sounds more professional? Which name do you want representing your business?

Some of the girl's names aer not nauseating.  However, it is within the right of the parents to name their kids whatever they please.  I'm gonna go wake up Quesadilla now and have her get ready for school.  (BTW, that is my DDs name)

Well considering I looked at all  3 names and could immediately read them and didn't have to think about how to prounounce it, then yeah lol.
