Can your child's name have an impact on his education?

Kids Named Adolf or Blue Ivy Destined for Life of Misery

February 23, 2012

Inrandom education news, a new study by the journal Social Pschological and Personality Science reports that the name you gave your child could lead to a life of misery! Specifically a poor education, low self-esteem, and condemnation to loneliness. And, they might become smokers. 

 

Which means, if you named your kid after your favorite liquor or or dog, start saving for therapy now. You've ruined the child's life.

 

‘‘I have a horrible, horrible name . .  .

 

this name has been holding me back my entire life.

 

It’s probably why kids picked on me in school

 

and why I never do well with women.’’ – Chandler Bing, Friends

 

The German media calls the practice of name-stereotyping “Kevinism.” (Guess they don't like Kevins much?) 

 

So, because I love you, and want to help, I’ve taken it upon myself to make a list of the ten worst baby names. If you see your child’s name here, and you don’t want to screw her up for life, go immediately to the courthouse and change her name. 

 

The Ten Worst Kid Names Ever 

Girls

Barbie

Jezebel

Regina

Placenta

Raia Sunshine

 

Boys

Adolf

Elvis

Google

Huckleberry

Lucifer

 

Any other names to add to the list?

Whats wrong with Regina?  Seems failry normal to me. 

I get that giving your kid a strange name is going to make things harder on them.  I hope Googles parents give him the attitude to go with the name!

*shrugs*


Names are generational, cultural and regional. The problem is that the generation TEACHING and EMPLOYING these children are from prior generations and other cultural backgrounds and look upon the names as problematic, strange, unusual, unacceptable, etc.


As much as I'd rather my child not be the TOTAL outcast, I'd also rather that she NOT be part of the status quo.

I feel the initial for the name BJ is a bad one too. Once the kid is older they will be made fun of.

Also add Lester to that list. For teasing reasons of course. My brother was tormented with that name. He prefers his middle name.

We had a student last year named Diva. She lived up to her name big time! We had a few laughs at lunch over it.
