It's stuff like this that annoys me when it comes to how others perceive us. BBW, L & HH, hell even Shawty Lo and his basketball team of baby mamas are solely for entertainment but this type of shit is serious! These are the types of things that should have us as a people up in arms signing petitions. This is the exploitation of our race at its finest! Other races do some crazy shit to their children's names, like Hashtag Johansson and it's "ooh they really like twitter, how unique is that?" news on yahoo. And in 20 years she'll be someone's CEO, but I promise you little Hashtag Jenkins would've had MF's screaming about "that's why mamas in the hood shouldn't be able to name their children!" We've got to stop this madness! This is a case of unique gone wrong!

Seriously, break out of the stereotype! If you take what I'm about to say wrong, so be it. Two tears in a bucket; but I'm seriously about to give you a lesson.

You are a walking, talking (typing) stereotype of what "America" says is a young black woman. Not even 21, and already have two babies, from the way you type you sound like you're just this side of being illiterate which makes me question whether or not you graduated high school (or if you did a Jethro Bodine), you've never stated what you intend to do after you give birth on the 30th, so that probably means you have no goals, and now you want to saddle your child with a Le-a (ledasha) type name. BREAK OUT OF THE FUCKING STEREOTYPE!

First of all, it's your child; she's not your cousin's baby, not your mama's baby she doesn't have to be cousin's baby's name twin! Second, if you're going to name her something off the wall then at least when someone says "Shemekia, what the hell do all those letters and misguided apostrophes mean" be able to say they have a meaning other than "I took the letters from scrabble tossed them in a bag, shook them up.....and BAM! That's what I got!" Long after you're gone, she's going to have that name and unfortunately, since republicans and tea party members are birthing babies daily when she is grown when a perspective boss sees her name they're going to gladly skip over that mess! As a matter of fact we don't even have to project that far when she hits school her name is going to have her labeled because there are quite a few of my colleagues who believe ghetto names are indicative of a child's behavior and the behavior of their parents.....to be honest, some days I believe the hype.

Giving your child that name already classifies her and sits her in a box to already be next in line for the stereotype. Go find a baby name book and if you find a traditional name and want to give it a personal touch, go for it. But this, this is a mess.

See, you were nice and explained it....I didn't bother, I figured she knows or knew exactly what she's doing- basic birds do crap like that, and you can't get more basic than the hot mess of a name she posted.

Buns, I think I'm in love with you girrrlllllll

mess around and flunk kindergarten because she can't spell her name.. :/

Quoting Mama-Lovejoy:

I would ponder on some other names if you ever expect your child to be taken seriously. She's going to have to learn to spell that name...write it and (here comes the scary part) PRONOUNCE IT!!! If your set on those names...at least reconsider the spelling! Good Luck...

I'm sorry, I had to increase the font size to make sure I was reading those names correctly-since you asked, honestly, all three choices are fucked up. Aeiouandsometimesyeisha is better than what's going on here. The only thing I like about that name is "CLARK."
