I hope they spelled it Leonidas or else they just called their kid “little girl lions” in Spanish.
Not sure how they spelled it. I may have misspelled it myself and it was Leonidas. I assume they just call him Leo.
My friend and his wife are having their first kid. I said "it better not be another Kaeden" as a joke
He said "it's close"
I felt like an asshole
Is it pronounced like Reagan?
See, I'm starting to think these people just don't know how to spell
Was Dipshiton taken?
Dude that works the front desk of my gym...Dolan...of course I only think of
please tell me this isn't pronounced like Kayla
My first name is very old and relatively uncommon, so I feel for these kids. They are just brutal to each other about shit like that
Like I had a coworker named Tielar ("Tyler")
Why would you do this to your child?
I’ll never understand parents that don’t consider the ways a name could potentially be made fun of by other kids. Even the dumb kids can come up with rhyming insults.
I work with someone whose legal first name is Random, after Prince Random from some sci-fi series of books that his parents were really into at the time
He goes by John but his email is still Random.lastname
This is what I don't get
None if these parents experienced childhood where kids are mean to each other over petty shit?
It's not like it ruined my life, and at the risk of being corny, it helped me develop a sense of empathy for people dealing with shit that they didn't choose
On the other hand, I still vividly remember a football coach saying "what kind of parents name their son [my name]?" in front of like 100 other kids and it sucked
I've also worked with a Merlin
Is Herbert making a comeback?
Is your mom making a comeback
When my wife was pregnant we were discussing potential boys names before we found out we were having a daughter. My wife's first choice was Bexley and told her no way. She wanted to know why and I said that, in some cases, names hold destinies and Bexley is just fated to be a douche. She didn't think it was funny.
Bexley seems more like a girl's name, iyam.
Looking it up, it has been among the 1000 most popular girl's names in the United States since 2016.
I've never heard of the name, though.
sounds like a Targaryen
fully realizing and acknowledging that all names are “made up” Bexley just seems like a total made up name after letters were just randomly thrown together. The gods looked down and saw that was the name you intended to give a boy thus blessed you with a daughter.
It's not about the kids. It's about the Facebook reception and people telling the parents they're clever.
Bexley sounds like a porn name tbh
Skyler is a stipper name
Ya mama asked me sup, aleister as well
Saoirse, pronounced Ser-shuh, is playing PreK soccer with my son
That’s a popular Irish name.
Always loved that name
Name isn't weird. Name is excellent. And between Saoirse Ronan and Saoirse-Monica Jackson (of Derry Girls and The Flash) probably getting a lot more popular state-side. That said, Celtic names are impossible to spell or pronounce.
Saoirse Ronan definitely has multiple Oscar nominations. Great actress.
She did two pretty huge films over a decade ago so wouldn't stun me if people ran with the name even if not due to the Irish attachment.
If they're in Pre-K, so 4 years old, mighta been off Ladybird, Brooklyn, or Little Women.
As an aside, she was amazing in See How They Run, if you haven't seen it.
Also very likely a family name.
This comes up every few pages, but ethnic names don’t belong ITT.
Our son has a Celtic name and it gets mispronounced/spelled wrong all the time. Which is odd considering there are 2 other boys in his daycare with the same name.
Ethnic names are the WORST!
That might be the winner.
I remember my first time on the internet
Banjo and that’s not even the worst one
Looks like someone mixed up their baby boy names with their male puppy names.
There's a joke in the UK that you can tell the really posh people because their dogs have kid names and their kids have dog names.
If I ever had a twin boy and girl combo they’d be Loop and Lil after Townes Van Zandt’s parakeets he kept in his blazer.
Do I qualify?
Murder really should be legal iyam
You should just give them real people names and those nicknames.
Like banjo and mandolin?
My daughter La-a found that tweet hilarious.
My cousin has a dog named Charlie and a kid named Lucky.
Naming your son Brixton is just downright evil
