Rock the fuck on!
Oh my frickin' Lord! How did I miss this?
An absolute scream, dog!
yeah, i never wanted to take a husbands name before, but now i look forward to it I need a clean start anyways
Some of my nieces and nephews are: Shawntelle Lee (said Shawn-telly), D'Shaun (said Day Shaun), Tavaris & Zakaryiah. My mother has yet to master spelling on any of them. Hell, she can't even get my brother Michael's name correct- MICHEAL every time. (She's dyslexic, seriously.)
My favorite college professor is dyslexic and she spells things wrong constantly, but sometimes it's so bad we don't even know what the word is suppose to be. My teacher has a great sense of humor though, so we all laugh about it and she teases herself, too.
My one niece is Gianna. (Gee-A-Nuh) My father says it, "Gee Anna". Drives me crazy.
Part of me says why do people say some names are acceptable and others are not since they are all nothing but a sound that had no meaning until one was assigned. The other part of me does agree that some people will be held back in life because they were given names that fall out of the "norm" and make people uncomfortable.
When I was pregnant with my daughter I put a lot of thought into what we would name her. We got it down to Sydney, Alexandra and Jordan. My husband ruled out Jordan because the last name is very Jewish and he said it would sound like she was an old bald Jewish accounant. He didn't like Sydney because of the Mayflower madaam. We went with Alexandra since she would have more choices. We call her Lexie now. Then as an adult she can choose to be Alex or Alexandra if she wants to switch and sound more business like.

My BIL has twin nephews named O'tay and Re'tay.
My husband's step cousin named her kids Lucky (boy) and Dixie Lou (girl).
How white trash does that sound? And she's way into the 40's pinup look/lifestyle, so her kids dress trashy as well.
It's sad, they are going to be made fun of so much when they go to school and they are the ones who will have to have these names forever. But the mother doesn't care because she thinks it's cool....
Lucky? Sounds like a dog's name.
Dixie Lou sounds like a hillbilly.
