Honestly, I wish my country had a list of approved names for children. People have been giving their kids stupid names for years, with no repercussions. The latest retarded name that I have seen in the news is "Hashtag". I really can't understand how that is not considered child abuse.

Just a name, they are making a bigger deal out of it than is necessary, I mean I know spacer isn't your real name nor does it change anything that I may or may not know or assume about you, it's just a name you go by

I really hate these parents when they are out in public, just have to repeatedly yell their kid's stupid name, as if it is soooo special and want everyone to know it's Jasmine. :rolleyes:

numbers and letters are the same, only your interpretation separates them, a letter or a number is only a combination of collection of directional lines and curves in which you are taught to identify with. To a person who has never seen them, they are infact still just swooshes of pen comparable to your eyes if you seen hieroglyphics.

Numbers allow for unique identifiers while regular names won't accommodate it

I don't see why there's a big deal over a name.

Well, that's theoretically true, however humans are more than dumb machines and have emotions, so a different name might have a big meaning to you and others.

I could go into detail, but I guess if you don't see that yourself there's not much to discuss, but more to disagree about.

I definitely do see how numbers could be thought to be humiliating or degrading in a way.

Numbers don't have "personality" like names do.

I don't see why there's a big deal over a name.

I do, however not with this name.

It's not embarassing, so just let it pass.

I guess cause it's just a name and doesnt matter

Pretty wrong. It matters to many people. Speak for yourself, but I don't want to be a victim of an irresponsible parent who thinks a stupid name is okay to go with and blow a child's life.

Names also work on subconscious levels, so a good name might give you better job, love, etc opportunities.

Damn right.. The name my parents saddled me with caused me an ENTIRE CHILDHOOD of being bullied by other kids. :( Even my teachers did it...

At least that country has guts. They fired their whole government and jailed the criminal bankers.

some of my US freinds think my daughters name is odd for a white girl... Destiny. I never thought anything bad of it but i guess its the 2nd most hated name on a couple lists I seen.

see a name shouldn't be country or race chained.... if I want to name a white girl Moesha then who really cares? but in the USA we think that is a "black girls name"....
