    Hey! Think about it...when she`s a bad-ass doctor/detective/soldier/PTA president or ballet dancer she can go by Q.B LaWanda. That`s a kinda cool handle. She`s a cutie, no matter what name she`s got.

    The people at the Hong Kong registry of births and deaths are real Nazis. So many Chinese people make up bizarre names like Cat Chow, Ludwig Von Ho, Bonky Yu, Adonis Lee, Milk Powder Chiu (a teen, not a gangster), Wanky, etc. so I wanted to name my own kid. I made up a squiggle and said it was a new Chinese character pronounced `Bob`, but they wouldn`t accept non-standard Chinese characters. I tried the Chinese for I`m Loving` It. Again, no good. Finally I got them to compromise with a name that combined Cantonese, Mandarin and English.

    There is a little girl in my 5-year-old`s kindergarten class named Tasia. Blonde as can be. When I met her, I remember saying to myself, "please oh please don`t be short for Fantasia, oh please no" - turns out she is named for an old dead relative named Anastasia.

    I worked with a chick who had two sons, D`Qualin and Mendor. I think that`s how you spell them. She used to tell people she met kid #2`s dad outside the mens restroom at a bar, hence, men door = Mendor. Yeah...

    What the hell is wrong with these people? If I was looking thru job applications, anyone with a name like "Quarntasia" would go to the bottom of pile. How can you NOT expect ghetto trash to walk in the door if you say yes to an interview?

    @Adcro

    You own your name, but everyone else has to use it. If your name is difficult to pronounce by the majority of people in the culture in which you live, you`re going to run into difficulties.

    I can empathise with, if not excuse, carmium`s view on this; if you`re an employer, you`re going to imagine fewer hassles with you, your colleagues, and your customers communicating to and about a guy named Bob than a guy named Digmblwafasdfnfurfonwada.

    @Musuko and carmium and the rest of you who are so fast to judge:
    There is a big difference between Quarntasia and the random letters Musuko hit on his keyboard. I personally think it`s disgusting that people think that countries should assimilate to just a handful of cultural standards. You wouldn`t judge a person from another country for having a "funny name". The problem is you want to picture America as having only a few cultures, and people who identify otherwise (particularly people that identify with Appalachian or inner-city life) often automatically get viewed as ignorant, of a particular political or social structure, or are simply ignored. Get off your high horse.

    Bleat all you want, but face facts -- going through life with a name like that is an unnecessary hardship. Especially if the kid grows up with the rest of the trappings of inner-city culture -- speaking in ghetto argot, reading and writing at inferior levels, dressing like a radioactive pimp-ho, etc.

    Adcro-"Judging a book by its cover there..."

    Stereotypes exist because there is usually more than a little truth to back them up.

    If the book`s cover looks like this:


    ...then I`m not going to pick this book expecting to read something along the lines of `Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?`.

    I hope that his darling little girl can overcome the albatross her mom just hung around her neck.

    White people are the absolute worst. You`d sooner hire a mass murdering white man in a suit just because his name is Jack. White Noise was right. All you people like to see is reflections of yourselves.

    afrodite420-"You`d sooner hire a mass murdering white man in a suit just because his name is Jack."

    That is incorrect.

    They would RATHER hire the most qualified for the job, no matter what their name/race/sexual preference etc. is.

    The LAW, on the other hand, would rather they hire someone `somewhat` qualified with preference given to those that are not white, are not male, or a combination of not both. (example: On the local police force, you can only promote one white male to Sgt. when you promote one black male to Sgt. There are quite a few white males who qualify for Sgt., but must wait for a black male to qualify so both can be promoted.)

    EXPERIENCE, on the other hand, demonstrates that the majority of people named `Quarntasia` are not the most qualified for the job. That hurts the `Quarntasia`s who are.

    "You`d judge someone for the name they were given by their parents?"

    No, you judge someone based on who they are. That is largely the result of genes and upbringing, both of which came from people who thought naming their daughter this was a good idea.

    @HOBYandy

    But your name isn`t a function of your own culture: it`s a device that everyone else uses to identify you.

    My name is Ben. I visited Chile and learned that because B and V sound very similar in Spanish, to their ears the name "Ben" sounded extremely similar to "ven", which means "come here".

    Would you have had me demand the entire country change the way they pronounce their language to accomodate me, or should I have done what I ultimately did do; alter my name to make it more palatable to the people around me: for the duration of my stay, I went by Benja, which they could say with ease and without confusion.

    Hey, guys, I`m not saying that judging a person by their name is excusable, and in reality, my better instincts would probably keep me from doing that. But I am saying that it would be very hard not to make presumptions about the Shawandas and Tyreesas and whatnot. Why? Because it seems that every loudmouth, low-class, nearly incomprehensible woman we see shouting and carrying on about her messed up McD`s order has a silly name like this.
    Some parents seem to think it`s part of their culture, but it`s really just a phoney trend that cannot do your child any favors in life because of the inevitable connotations.

    Seems to me just from that small photo that a stereotype gave birth to a brand new stereotype.

    Giant, painted, claw-like fingernails on the hand holding a baby with a gold chain and sunglasses. The name just ties it all together perfectly.

    names, and how you were given them, do tend to shape your life. for instance, my name is amanda and i was named after a bassett hound. yeah, really.

    i loathe my name but i adore dogs.

    so one has to wonder what kind of life a kid`s going to have when their name looks and sounds like somebody threw a handful of scrabble tiles at the wall.


    just as an aside, i worked with a temp once whose niece had just had a child. this lady`s name was barbara and she happened to be black. anyway, i asked her what her niece had named the baby and she replied, "oh, just some damn (n-word) name! i can`t even pronounce it!"

    what was a young white girl to say to THAT?
