That is completely stupid. Although you're entitled to your opinion, parents are also to their opinion and their right. If you across the sea and land in India or China, they will think you're name is weird, and hell, it might mean something gross in their language. So what if their parents name their kid Lovettekida, they have the right to do that because it is their kid, not yours. How would you like it if someone came up to you and said you cannot name your kid Alicia or some simple overused American name and said its illegal to not end your child's name with -qua or -ria or -ez? I'm pretty sure you'd be pissed as ****. I'm pretty sure parents consider their child's future when they're naming them, they're not stupid.
I would like to name my girls with Arabic and/or Indian names, like Ishtar, Aishvari, Slaimah, Dalal, Anchaal, or Kala. In India and in the Middle East, these names have a lot of meaning. My name is Yissell and I used to hate it, but I've learned to appreciate its backround and uniqueness.
To illegalize naming the child you gave birth to, is illegal and inconstitutional within itself.
Um. I know tone gets lost on the internet, but this thread wasn't serious. I thought the note at the bottom saying it was for fun and humour would've tipped everyone off, buuuut...
I'm not rallying the troops to quite literally ban idiotic name choices (and yes, many names ARE idiotic). It was meant to generate a chuckle or two and maybe just maybe inspire some real, genuine thought to what so-called names some children are being given.
I also don't believe I referred to names that are merely in other languages.
But you'd be wrong in that little blanket statement talking about how parents aren't stupid. That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. It's not exactly rocket science to breed, you know.
