Katie = self righteous kunt.

I named my son Conrad (Brave Counsel) and he's in prison on felony assault.

Also think about how DIFFERENT people can be, despite having the same first name. For instance,
George Patton and George of the Jungle. Oh, no, wait...forget I said that!

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.

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.

Glad we're in agreement about it mattering who your children associate with.

But as far as the rest of it I think you missed the entire point of the discussion or perhaps you and I received different messages from it. I'll address your points in the order you presented them

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

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.

"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

I always judge against pretentious upper middle class names. I don't want my kids running around with a bunch of irresponsible spoiled brats.

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?

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.

I'd love to see her in my local pub, the regulars would shred her alive.

She#'s one of those odious people that go on the The Apprentice and big themselves up about drating ace they are about anything to do with business whilst ignoring the fact if they were as successful as they make out they wouldn't be applying for their next job via a drating gameshow.

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.

I love how polite the others on this clip are. That's English people for you, even when they want to call you a C*nt they manage to still be civil.

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

We're very different politically. I'm 100% behind you, here, though. Beautifully said.

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.

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!

She's disgusting. While she may have money, she has no class.

And, really, one who spends a great deal of time talking about "Class" has perhaps a lack of class in her background.

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.

She may be really irritating, but she is on to something.
