I hate the usage of that term especially when many don't understand its definition. By definition a name can not be ghetto. Ghetto refers to a low economic growth area. A name does not suggest economic status. Its called culture. Everyone is not named Jill or Amber. My daughter will be born in January. I told my friend my husband picked out her name. He always wanted a little girl. He researched every name he liked. He loves the name ALAYLAH. My friend said," please don't give her a ghetto name. She will need a job one day." The name means power and its middle eastern originated. My husband loves the definition of the name.
