- Those are great names mate I too like traditional names far better..
My mom gave us all names that would be “appropriate for the president of the United States” (same reason she made us all learn how to golf). And even with a name like Victoria, I can still go by a nickname, or can use my full name in formal situations. I’m not gonna vote for a Kylee or Angelika or Daveed.
I know what you mean, they come up with the most ridiculous names. I always thought Matthew was nerd's name when I was a kid, but I'm glad I have a name that can be taken seriously. Sometimes a name is someone's first impression of you, and you don't want a potential employer's first impression to be "Why would anyone name their kid that?"
But people voted for Barack anyway, so what do I know.
But who are you to decide what name is or isn't normal? Favourite names change all the time and neither you nor me can really say that it is or isn't normal.
Plus it's a Hebrew version of David
It’s not a discussion about normal and currently popular names. The problem is that millennial parents are just straight up making up names for their kids. Names that literally no other child in America has. My theory is that the parents want to be as unique as possible. Unfortunately, strange or unique names is a cause for bullying in school. Not to mention the bias and discrimination a person with the name Tylee or Kristo will experience when applying for a job.
The juice strikes again.
That's all so dumb. Naming a child something "appropriate" is fine if you like that name, but specifically that it fits some ridiculous political job your child is very likely to never get anywhere near to? And what does a name have to do with anything in terms of what a person is like?
What shallow emptyheaded nonsense. Naming your kid "daveed" is stupid, but being that much of a tradition humping idiot is just as bad.
Don't even get me started on the golf comment, unless that was supposed to be a joke.
Nah you just didn’t at all understand the point, which is fine. Of course my mom didn’t expect any of her kids to become president. She wanted us to have traditional, pronunciable, elegant names that wouldn’t raise an eyebrow on a job application. She made us all learn golf because it’s a common sport played in the business world. Incidentally, I ended up in the military and hate golf.
I don't see what's edgy about that at all. It's the same as if you were to name your child only by overly religious names, just in case your kid ever becomes pope or something. It's ridiculous. Name your kid whatever you want, just don't have such a shallow reason for it, and push the meaning of that name on the kid.
Nowhere did he say that she named them with the
of them becoming president (or politicians, for that matter), he just said appropriate. That's completely reasonable--give your child a name they could be proud of.
As for the golf thing, golf is a pretty valuable social skill once you've made it in life. Probably grew up in a very well-off household, so it's all the more likely to come in handy. Moreso than most other ballsports.
You hit the nail on the head for both my points. I had to explain it to this dude because he totally didn’t understand it. He literally thought my mom expected us all to become president.

I have no reason to argue, you can talk about how you interpreted, doesn't change that he said what he said and what he said was stupid.
Something as important as naming another human being, especially your own child, shouldn't be driven by something like politics, or anything similar. It should be a name that you love or feel proud of or have some specific meaning. Something special. Not just something that you think others will think of in one way or another
I don't know how that could be considered edgy, but I guess unless you're conforming you're an edgy hipster /shrug.
People in positions of power, whether political or otherwise, will often benefit from having a powerful name. It also gives the kid something to be inherently proud of. My name's meaning is typically defined as "courage" or "strong leader" and is the name of a historically prominent conqueror. I am very fond of my name and can say that when I introduce myself firmly with my full name I am already ahead of someone who introduces themselves with a weird or "weak" name. It is all presentation.
That said, a name isn't going to make or break you. Whether you agree with them or not,
Biden, and other such folks all have simple names and are quite successful people.
Then you have parents that practically condemn their child with a name like "Shitania", though. Just get a name change as soon as legally possible. Managing in a professional environment will be more difficult than necessary with a name like that.
