Someone asked me this question a while back and I thought to ask it to you then somehow thought it didn't make much sense but then again there's nothing wrong with having a little bit of fun so
(The above is the longest sentence I've written in a while without punctuation marks. LOL. Moving on..). So he asked me what name will you never name your child? This morning someone called in on a radio show and said she was making a shout out to her husband; Solution. SOLUTION! But why would you name your child Solution? I've also heard Military. And I used to know a family in who named their children (no jokes) George Bush, Bill Clinton and Condoleeza Rice. LOL.
And while we're at it, do YOU like YOUR name? I know some people who don't. I know someone whose name is Endurance but he tells everyone his name is Eddy, short for Edward (if you ask him). If you want to threaten him just tell him that you will tell everybody that is name is Endurance. Hehe. Also my very posh friend would pay me loads not to tell anyone that her name is Peace, she just says she has no English name.
I absolutely love ALL my names; Nwando Thelma Chidinma Valerie. A couple of years back most people called me Valerie, I don't know how we transitioned to Thelma. In fact just last night I was talking to my Ex whom I'd promised we would hang after the wedding and when he called I said I wasn't game anymore. He said "Val please nau". For a second I didn't know he was talking to me, why nigger alternates between Nwando, Thelma and Valerie is a mystery to me. Stick to one already! LOL.
I would never give my kids "ghetto" names that have absolutely no meaning; Shaniqua, Laquisha, La'Kisha, Bon'Quisha, Sha'Nay Nay, La'Quishraniqua et al. I wouldn't give my kids names like (no offense to those bearing these names); God is Good, God is Great, God is Able etc BUT I can (and may) give them these names in Igbo or any other Nigerian language.
Et tu? What would you absolutely never name your kids? Do you like your name(s)? What are some of the whackiest names you've heard?
