Is there a problem with that name? The question is based on comments Ive read linking names to education, neighborhood, etc.


** Ive heard all type of names living in America? Why? Because its a melting pot. How do you react when you meet people from Africa, Asia, South America and you are given a name outside of the "normal" standard? But then again I what is the norm?

Ive read alot of comments that the name is ghetto but no has actually said how do we determine that a name is ghetto. So what is the legitimate foundation for the conslusion? And I dont mean something like someone told you, its usually in the media, etc.

After reading some of these comments Im wondering do we use these judging techniques when we rent a unit, serve someone at a restuarant, receive job applications, selling an item, etc.

My name isnt Laquana but I have friends with names whose are stereotypes the same way. I also have friends: Diane, Annie Mae, Charlene.

And they all are not "ghetto" and they all are not black.

I don't care what someone's name is. It's how they act and carry themselves.

If your name is "Amanda" and you act like a box of rocks has more common sense than you do......well....you know, lol.

As long as you don't spell it Lakwanah or L'Aquannah, I think it's a perfectly fine name.

It's pretty much just a name.
