I think some of the names celebrities are saddling their kids with these days should count as a form of child abuse TBH.

Pilot Inspektor
Kal-El
Bear Blu
Sparrow James Midnight
Morrocan Scott
Zuma Nesta Rock
Bronx Mowgli
Harper Seven
All of Jamie Oliver's kids.

And so on...

My heart goes out to all of you, and your bad parents should be ashamed of themselves :hug:.

Well any parent who would name their kid something like that (especially if the child would go to public schools) is purposefully inviting teasing and bullying (which is basically no different to them doing it themselves) and abusing their child. To be honest they should be forced to name their child something more appropriate or have the child taken from them and given a more appropriate name anyway.

I don't know, once we got over the initial hilarity when we found out her name for the first time it just became normal. Still, glad it wasn't me right enough! :lol:

Well clearly you're not a bully or potential employer. I highly doubt any remotely respectable place would allow an employee to have 'Squirrel' on a nametag.

I saw an interview with Peaches Geldof where she felt bad for celeb kids because people used to always take the piss out of her name. In comparison to some her's isn't even that bad.

There's a lot of kids with "ethnic" names given to them by immigrant parents these days. Do you think those names count as child abuse if the kids get teased for them?

Ohmygod :lol: I was just thinking of Moon Unit, she plays Ted's cousin in HIMYM.

Also Dweezil is not the guys real name, "Dweezil's registered birth name was Ian Donald Calvin Euclid Zappa. The hospital at which he was born refused to register him under the name Dweezil, so Frank listed the names of several musician friends." :lol:

Also Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa. This takes the cake :spit:

Waiting for someone to name their child 'The'. That name already exists. It's a common Vietnamese name. Next time you attempt a joke, do a bit of research about ethnicity so you don't look like an ignorant fool.

Celebrities who name their kids like ass wipes are simply selfish. They don't think about how these poor kids will deal with the consequences in school and peers making fun of them. These celebs just want to be special and stand out by turning their children into a tool to boost their own relavence.

I don't mean like that at all... I don't think Brangelina named Zahara anyways?

Growing up I knew someone called Mabanana which means a girl or something to that effect, which is a fine name in their country I'm sure, but of course she was teased and I'm just wondering whether you think people coming from other countries should make sure to give their kids neutral English names instead of names like that?

Moroccan? Moroccan is not a name. It's a demonym.

And Zuma isn't a nice name either. It's the last name of an idiot who presides over South Africa..

I doubt Jacob Zuma is the only person in South Africa with that name though:lol:.

Have the Stefanis ever said why they named him that ?

It's a name that brings on negative connotations in my opinion. Could've been worse, she could have called her kid Hitler or Bin Laden or something.

I think they did make a statement, but it's still a bizarre name to choose.

What ever happened to simple names like Jonathan and Harry? It's like the parents opened the dictionary, said a random page number and then just chose one from that page.

Please tell me how Zuma is even close to Hitler and Bin Laden? :confused:

Anyway, according to this (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/08/22/zuma-nesta-rock-gwen-stef_n_120658.html) they they named him after Zuma Beach in Malibu.

No offense to anyone, but I wouldn't want a basic name like Jonathan or Harry. I like having a unique name even though everyone misspells it.:help:

Couldn't find it online...could you point to a source? :confused: Vietnamese names are supposed to be based on Chinese characters, so perhaps you could enlighten me on which Chinese character it refers to?

Furthermore, as far as I know, the Vietnamese naming system is structured in such a way that there are several sections that TOGETHER form your name. Even if I accepted that 'The' is a Vietnamese CHARACTER, it being part of a name doesn't make it the name itself.

I'm Vietnamese and have several friends with that name :). "The" can be by itself or it can be combined with another name like you've mentioned the part about several sections. For example, there's a famous Vietnamese singer name The Son (this is only his first name)...unfortunately it sounds awful in English :tape:

from Arthur Ashe's wiki page:

Ashe served in the US Army from 1966–68, reaching the rank of first lieutenant. On February 20, 1977, Ashe married Jeanne Moutoussamy, a photographer he had met four months earlier. Andrew Young, the US ambassador to the UN, performed the ceremony at the UN chapel in New York City. Arthur and Jeanne adopted one child together, a daughter, who was born on December 21, 1986. She was named Camera after her mother's profession. Camera was only six years old when her father died.

I don't understand all the angst over what people chose to name their children. For one there are way more original, ethnic and unusual names these days so the kids won't be alone in school. But two, maybe people shouldn't be angry at the parents for partaking in their god-given right to name their children and place it on society/parents who don't teach their children how wrong it is to tease other children about something they have no control over? Anyway, it's much better to me to have an unusual name as it makes you memorable in the end and not just one of many. :shrug:
