    Is she snobby? Yes.

    Is she accurate? Yes.

    Dumb people tend to name their children with dumb names, and tend to raise their children to be as dumb as them.

    The problem with a stereotype is that there is usually a basis for it.

    Quick quiz: You take a poll of people and aske them to consider the demographic that comes to mind for the following names: `Michael` and `Sha`Nay Nay`.

    One will result in varied demographic options, one will be much more limited (and will have a much higher chance of being accurate).

    I was too busy watching her to listen to that other twat much but it did occur to me that this woman who`s talking about people being `lower class` was a contestant on the Apprentice.... essentially it`s a game show - there`s nothing classy about that.

    MeGrendel but would you stop your children from playing with `Sha`Nay Nay` if they wanted to? That`s what bothers me. She is segregating her children based on stereotypes of names.

    She`s honest.
    You do it. You hear the name "Shanaynay" you make an internal judgement based solely on the name. You might also make one with names like Enrique or Quan, depending on your background.

    You do it, don`t knock her for it.

    Convenience-"MeGrendel but would you stop your children from playing with `Sha`Nay Nay` if they wanted to?"

    No, I wouldn`t and No, I don`t. I was not suggesting that. Just agreeing that you can tell a lot by certain names.

    Smutleybutt-"She is segregating her children based on stereotypes of names."

    She`s allowed to segregate who who her kids play with on any basis: name, body odor, hair color, etc. Either way, she`s a bigot.

    She is going one farther though Gerry, she`s acting on that inner judgement and stopping her children play with other kids based on it.

    tbh I could maybe reel off a couple of names of the kids my kids (step-kids but as good as mine) play with, but I wouldn`t really take that much of an interest in their names just to stop/allow them to socialise with each other based on it.

    I tend to just refer to them by what they look like rather than their names `oi, dribbly one...get off the ginger one and put that stick covered in dog poo down`

    If you want names with real class and character, you`ve got to appropriate your kid`s name from Our Gang/Little Rascals: Spanky, Butch, Darla, Spike, Chubby, Stymie, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, etc.

    Now, them`s names.

    To have assumptions or expectations of someone because of their status - that is, to hold a stereotype - is perfectly normal; an argument can be made for why it is even beneficial for the individual.

    To judge or treat an individual differently based on that stereotype is the mistake.

    The problem with class is that you are either upper class or you are not. The people that are not really don`t understand why they aren`t or why it matters.

    The point is that it does exist, it does matter to those people and that`s all there is. You can bemoan it all you like, however people of a certain standing will always be aware of people who aren`t.

    Okay- names say nothing about the child, merely the parent. Secondly, she is making horrible assumptions that a certain class is better than another. However- some parents saddle their kids with truly silly names which the poor child has to live with.

    This elitist woman has her head so high up in the clouds by making these grand assumptions by judging statuses on a first name basis. It wouldn`t be long before her groundless feeble columns that supports her mindless judgements will have her descending her upper class arse falling down to the ground!

    Upper class or not, she disregards the cardinal rule that you do not **** with the people by revealing upfront that they live in a country ruled by stauses.

    after reading comments.I ad this. She is right that less intelligent people name thier children stupid things. But this does not and should not ever reflect on societies expection or treatment of a child.It`s not their bloody fault they are called mercades or porche or bloody tyler. Plenty of dumbasses also name their kids edward, jack and james and susan. you could name your child 45&&up and it would make no difference to their intellectual capacity. It is how a child is treated by it`s micro and meso systems that will affect his/her cognition and personaility. I`m afraid no amount of fancy name is going to save her kids if their first influence is an insuferable twat like her. And poverty does not equate to intelligence either. Being poor does not make you dumb, there are other factors.

    She is a hypocrite. She named her daughter India. And when this was pointed out she clearly pulled the, "Oh, it is ok if -I- do it."

    I can agree that yes, there is a moment of judgement when you hear someone`s name (Sheniqua, Buck, Bubba, etc) but to act on that judgement and prevent your child (or yourself) from associating with that person is where she is dead WRONG.

    Because Ann Coulter is also disgusting!

    Yes, names can point out a downfall of the parents. They don`t predict the child. Being Jeffrey instead of Germaine doesn`t mean he won`t be Jeffrey Dahmer. I`ve met lovely people with awful names, awful people with normal names. Being named Katie certainly didn`t make her worthwhile!

    Screw that wench. That sort of snobbery is utter crap. And it`s not just kids names, this sort of pretentiousness includes what kind of car you drive, clothes you wear, etc..

    I drive a 25 year old car, it still gets 25mpg and it`s cheaper to insure. Wear clothes that are comfortable, not fashionable. Still have a plain cellphone, because I don`t need to text or surf the internet away from home. And the local library is free too.

    Those that would judge me based on appearances would only be deceiving themselves. As most of you know I can hold my own in any debate here or elsewhere.

    Her kind of snobbery is no different than racism and it needs to end.

    Now that her appearance on the show is a few years ago she`s basically just becoming even more ridiculous to try and keep herself on tv and 15 mins of fame going.

    people love to call her snobby and I agree she is a bit pretentious but she has a great point about names, they say a lot about a person and where they are from.

    The other woman who said it doesn`t matter who your children associate with is dead wrong, you are the sum of your closest friends, always.

    @CrakrJak: I`m sure you do wear comfortable clothes and drive an old car but it`s not because you`re wealthy and choose to do that is it?

    @nickle2: "the regulars at my local pub" I have a feeling she wouldn`t choose to associate with them in the least so they wouldn`t have the opportunity. There`s a reason behind that.

    If you disagree with me it`s fine, but look at where you are in life then look at your friends, point made.

    Its amazing how, after all this time dealing with racism, sexism, and homophobia, that someone would actively look for another arbitrary reason to hate someone.

    Why waste time hating someone because of the color of their skin, or their birth name, when you can take just a few minutes to get to know them, and then hate them for who they really are?

    @Liquidglass,
    "names, they say a lot about a person and where they are from"
    No. SOMETIMES they say something significant about a person. Sometimes they just say that the parents liked a name we don`t. Sometimes it was the name of a beloved relative or a person they admired. Sometimes the kids hate those names because of what it makes snobbish people think of them.
    You`re right that it matters who your kids associate with. It doesn`t matter what their names are. It`s WHO they are that matters.
    I can`t help wondering, if you think she "has a great point about names", on what other features do YOU pre-judge a person - skin color, eye shape, religion?
    CrakrJak is right, this is prejudice. And you completely missed his point which is that the fact that he has an old car and wears comfortable clothes doesn`t, by any means, make him less worthy as a friend or associate.
    Your comment to Nickel2? Again, you`re right. The reason? She`s a snobby, f*ck

    2) I can`t help but wonder how much of a hypocrite you are. I didn`t say I judged a person on their name but it does tell me a small bit about their past. I grew up in the south where people were liked and disliked by the brand of car (ford vs chev) or the team they supported (UNC vs Duke).

    I`m sure you have even made a split second decision based on these facts, it doesn`t mean you wouldn`t associate with the person but you wouldn`t spend the time to become their best friend because you don`t share similar interests. Think before you speak about yourself.

    3) It`s not prejudice it`s preference. Prejudice would assume she is eliminating entire sects of people but instead she`s generally eliminating people based on minute information.

    1) As she stated (even though it was snobby) names do indicate where you`re from aka background. I`m not saying it indicates anything about the specific person that`s like determining their personality through an astrological sign. However, it says something about the parents. Children are raised by their parents (biological or otherwise) so while the name does not determine their speicifc behavior their parents will. Parents choices in things would dictate their personality, thus a choice in a name will dictate something about those parents and the personality traits they passed on to said child.

    think if you will for a moment, of all the people you know with the same name, do they not have similar traits (not 100%) but for the most part? That`s the point. It`s a split second decision based on limited information without spending precious time in the evaluation of the decision. I`m sure it varies on a case to case basis but like any generality it holds true: genera

    People like this kill me. One woman got more than her 15 minutes of fame (notoriety?) years ago when it was being considered whether a rapid transit line should be run down a long disused rail right-of-way in the better part of town, and she found the idea abhorrent:
    "We are the creme de la creme of Vancouver society..." she opined, and promptly became laughing stock and rotten fruit target of the month.

    1) I have 3 friends named Scott. All are very different. They have some traits that are similar. Also similar to Goerge, Marc, Andy and Jerry. Depriving a child a friend on the basis of a name may deprive them of a great friend.
    2) It MAY tell you something about their past. I`ve made split second decisions about people on issues less shallow than names or cars, and then been in positions where I had to deal with them...and found out they were really good, worthwhile people. I`ve learned to try NOT to make decisions like that (doesn`t always work, though).
    3) Presumably (yes, it`s kind of a split second decision) she using the name to gauge their "class". That would be eliminating a "sect" of people. That`s a type of prejudice.
    4) You`re assuming the people in Nickel2`s pub would be of that class. So do I actually. THAT`S what`s hypocritical. She might have a great time, if she could loosen up.
    5) Keep personal information out of public forums.
