    I thought it was funny... I think it had more to do with their delivery.. like when that guy smacked his lips lol... than the actual names. Although some of them were pretty hilarious. (Clitorisandra)

I also had friends who parents had influences from Islam. I went to school with a lot of Keisha's, Monique's, and later in life met a LaQuanna, and Mar' Quitta with Doctorats... their names should not get them classed as ghetto, since you don't know how they behave, act, or live their lives. However, I didn't grow up in the ghetto or the hood, neither did the people with those names..that's why it's not funny.
    True, kids don't have any control over what they get named, but those names in bold are ghetto names. It's not about the people being ghetto, but about the names being ghetto. My mother originally wanted to name me 'DayShaun,' but thankfully my father put the smackdown on that idea.

    My mother thought she was being Afrocentric, just like some of those other parents, but those names aren't Afrocentric. I remember some book came out in the 70's or 80's where somebody made up a bunch of allegedly Afrocentric names and people believed they were.

    the best one I ever heard in person was Polo...a little boy...hilarious


    and there's that comedian that does a bit about meeting a girl on the internet, and her ad said she was Latina, but when he picks her up at her house she's black and he's surprised ....turns out, it's not Latina, it's La'tina

    True, the names are tacky, but they're also ghetto. If you're named Anfernee, LaQuisha, Latrice, etc, before anybody meets you the name brings up an image of 'ghetto.'

    It's just like if somebody is named 'Muffy,' 'Buffy,' 'Chet,' or 'Biff' it makes people think wealthy/snotty. It doesn't mean they are, but the name conjures up that image.

    understood. just like I get tired of people being "stupid" just because they are from the south. on some level, by someone out there (mostly Grim) we all get made fun of by some jackass!

    bubba, billy bob, mabel, gertie, bertie, myrtle... ok - some of those are just old people names but still...

    And heres the pictures:
    LaQuisha, et al has fake nails about 2 inches long, hair that is 3 different colors and some tight ass pants and high heels.
    Muff, et al are wearing sweater sets, pleated skirts, pearls, pink lipstick, and loafers while playing croquet.... and they all have that same "I'm better than you" or "I just stepped in dog shit" look on their faces!
    Chet and Biff are naked peeping into the men's room at the country club...

    Kill her.

    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    Do people actually name their kids Buffy or Muffy, or is that just a nickname? I cannot believe anyone would actually name their kids something so horrendous. And I'm sorry, but many of these names ARE ghetto. Thats not a reflection on them as much as it is a reflection on their parents. I feel terrible for kids who have these names, as much as people don't realize it, it does limit them later in life. I bet you anything someone who picks up a resume and the name is D'Nile, Laquisha, etc., is not going to get as fair a shake as a Rebecca, Jennifer, etc. I can't believe parents don't think about these sort of things. I think when you name a child, you should concern yourself with how the name will follow them into adulthood as well. I have a problem with these trendy little girl names as well that these kids will be embarrassed by when they are older.

    King, don't feel bad. My mom originally wanted to name me "Lacy" but paired with my maiden last name, it sounded like a stripper name. My father put his foot down (thank God) because he didn't want me to grow up hugging the pole My mom was just naive.
