    Had a Korean friend with the last name Onn. He said if he had a son, he was gonna name him Turner. So far no children.

    A UFC fan would have chosen 'Gettit'.

    Yup - I always have to clarify my name. My kid has a one syllable familiar name, not some shit no one has heard of before.

    I like unique names, but there's a difference between not common and off the f'n wall

    For example, my entire family has relatively odd names, mine is Hunter (which for a guy in his 30s is not common at all like it is for young kids), my brother is Garrett, my dad is Tyrone, and my son is Deacon. I tried to name him Ronan but that was a bit too crazy for the wife

    not that I'm implying anything is wrong w/ John, or Sam, or James etc.... just I always liked uncommon names.

    But I knew a kid in college named Solmar, that had brothers named Paragrynn and Blueray (before the actual movie format came out, seriously wtf). That's over the top IMO

    I went to elementary school w/ two girls named 'Sparkle' and 'Dazzle'

    I thought those were pretty badass names tbh

    Every name was new at some point. The real distinction here is cool creative names vs. dumb shit.

    They're still better than some Native American names. I knew a lady whose last name was Prettyontop and that's not even that embarrassing as far as Native American names goes...

    This is how I feel about it. I think everyone should name their kids something with some meaning behind it. If you name your kid Lexus because you like that brand of car that's just.... well, I'll not be mean. Or what would be worse, but hilariously awesome, would be if you named your kid Lexus because that was the kind of car they were conceived in. My point is, put some thought into your Childrens names. They'll have them for the rest of their lives. "Mommy, why did you and daddy name me John". "I don't know. Just seemed like a good 'normal' name".

    My kids are named Nagual, Ohkwari, and Soyala, and each one has special meaning to me and the Wife.

    "....an ordinary name like Caroline can lead people to have ordinary expectations about a person."

    They're better than you, that's why. Their childrens' names should and do reflect that. These people know how to stand in front of a camera and act like someone else while reciting dialogue they read. These are the kinds of people the world values.
