    My son is 16 but he is of mixed race and we gave him two Hindu names and he found their meanings and loves them. I chose the second one because the names go together quite well!

    black and white. mixed race has a lot to do with the naming. some names that go good on a black baby wouldnt go good on a white one. some names that go good on a white baby wont go good on a black one. thats why. an indian name wouldnt go good on a white baby. spanish names wouldnt go good on black babies. thats like naming a white baby kung li chie... it doesnt go good. it doesnt make sense. do you understand now?

    I picked the first one because my son is Derrick Jr. and we call him DJ for short.

    I agree with Brenna, what does the race have to do with what you name him? What do you mean names would go good with a black baby and not a white one? Name him what you want.
