Josh, Anna and the Ms 14: Another arrow for the quiver

Recommended Posts


I have friends who became parents 2 weeks ago and him being French and her being German (but she grew up in Belgium and Scottland) they had a hard time finding a name that is internationally known (in the Western world), can be pronounced in each of their languages, is classy and timeless. They ended up with Emilie, which is a nice name, trendy right now in Middle and Western Europe but not tacky (yet?).

ETA: I find this thoroughly fascinating. That was the name du jour of my upper middle class elementary school in the 1980s. There were 5 Katies in my 1st grade class. 

 It was Tracey in my day........

Soooo many Traceys. 

By the time MiniCoveredInBees started school It was Millie.

Millies everywhere........ Something to do with being born in the year 2000 ;)

Of course everyone here in NC is freaking out because of Irma and clearing the grocery store shelves of water. (*eyeroll*) We ran in to get something for dinner last night and this very, very elderly gentleman stopped me to ask what I thought about all the hullaballoo (yes he used that word! and yes, I am sort of a weirdo-magnet. strangers just talk to me...). He was so genteel and articulate. We spoke for a bit and he suddenly said "you know, I knew many Irmas in my younger days. They were all bitches." then he was done talking and strolled off. I tried so hard not to laugh. 

Andddd! I love Astrid, personally. But:

In Ireland, Kevin is a very conservative normal (even slightly boring) name. 


When I was at school, the tacky names with negative connotations were Jacinta, Jocelyn, Tracy and Sharon (the fat slags :my_biggrin:), Cheryl, Anita etc... I think v similar to U.K. Nowadays those are out of use, and it's more like Beyoncé, Rihanna etc although I've never met a real life child with those names. I find 90% of kids in my kids' school have very uninteresting names. Lots of repetition also. A huge amount of Daniel, Hannah, Lucy, Rian, James, Katie etc

I think they will announce the birth of M5 right after Joe's wedding and around Joy's gender reveal. Then there will be less focus on them. Probably with another pregnancy announcement of Jessa or Jinger.

You know you're old when names like Kevin and Jennifer are considered "old-fashioned." Those are my kids' peers' names. They were born in 1987 and 1990.

MY GD is 3, and her name is Claire. In the 80s and 90's, Claire or Mary  would have been considered old-fashioned. It's all a big cycle.

Hmmm. I see I'm going to have to go back to the last thread and find out why all the hate for Astrid. Its not very common here (Canadian West Coast) but not unknown. If course it always makes me think of Pippi Longstocking, so I have only good feelings about it. 

I don't think there is any "hate" towards the name Astrid. We were just discussing how different names are perceived differently in different areas. I don't dislike the name itself. I DO dislike TRYNDY names and maybe judge people more harshly than I should when they use them. But I am working on that :my_angel:

Astrid is #613 in popularity  on babycenter while Astryd was #12,244 hehe

If people's names reflect who they are, then I don't think I'd want my kids to play with Spurgeon or Israel. Spurgeon's name sounds like he would be pompous, bossy, and smug. While Israel isn't a terrible name, it would lead me to believe that the parents have some kind of a saviour complex (which isn't inaccurate).

My great grandfather was named Israel. Then again, we're Jewish. I never met him, but he was a good man. He worked hard to protect his family.

I just started tutoring some kids who are refugees from Afghanistan. I'm having a terrible time remembering their names. I put them on an index card, and carry it around, muttering the names to myself. 

In my long ago youth i studied Latin, German, French and Spanish, but these names have me stumped. I have learned to say thank you.

The family has been helped by the churches and temples in the community. It was a wonderful team effort.

I believe they live around Interlachen, east of Gainesville, in north central Florida. They aren't on the coast. They probably haven't evacuated. However, they do live in a manufactured home, which is not ideal in a hurricane. [also unlikely to have a cellar to shelter in]

They live probably about 80 miles north of John & Alyssa Bates Webster, who are near Orlando (also in the interior).

Florida has about 20 million people; there is no way everyone can evacuate north & away from the coasts.

I think this is probably the worst name I remember.


 In 1966, a Liverpool supporter called his newborn after every player in the 1965 FA Cup-winning team – including the manager and two assistants. Pity the poor teachers who had to take the register for Paula St John Lawrence Lawler Byrne Strong Yeats Stevenson Callaghan Hunt Milne Smith Thompson Shankly Bennett Paisley O’Sullivan. Even worse, her mother only discovered her daughter’s unusual name when she came out of hospital – and said she was “disgusted” at her husband’s choice. Mainly because, although her husband was football mad, she had never watched a match in her life.

I wonder how long the marriage lasted....and imagine the hell that child had filling in forms the rest of her life! If she could even remember her name in the right order.... :mindblowing:

In Thailand, EVERYONE has a nickname that is generally used. I know small, little, fat, frog, mouse, crab, dog, pouty-lips, and painting. I was introduced to a friend's new baby on Wednesday - warm water (Napoon)!

There's a cookbook written by a Thai called Cooking with Poo. Poo means crab.....

My family had an exchange student from Thailand when I was younger, and he went by Sat, since he was born on Saturday.

As for the book, well, this also exists:

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
