The only problem with this is that it never cuts both ways. I think many white southern names are kind of ghetto. What about Jim Bob, Donnie Wayne, and Spooner? I am also tired of western names like Cody, Wade, and Shane. All cultures do this sort of thing not just black folk living in the ghetto.

You're right, it doesn't cut both ways. I bet if we called those names trailer park white trash names folks would be all up in arms.


Whaaaat? I see people making fun of "trailer trash" and "rednecks" all the damn time!

I'll admit I was a little uncomfortable with some of these, especially the "Watermelonisha" or whatever, and the fact that at least one of the boys appeared to be non-black.

But it also made me laugh because I have grown up with Velveeta, Satan (pronounced sah-tahn), Margarita, Alize, LaTasha, LaTisha, Veroniqua, Shampelle, and fifteen different spellings of Nakia, including Nekqui'aa. Also, I have never known a white Courtney. falloff

It'd be funnier if it weren't so sad. What do stupidly-named children do when they grow up? Who's going to hire Toprameneesha for a professional position? Those doing the hiring will have a good laugh at the name on her resumé - before it ends up in the circular file.
I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

I've seen plenty of unusually-named people in professional positions. Like others have said, Shaterica (medical assistant at my doctor's office) is really no stupider than Dottie Jo (co-owner of a local gym).

Gotta tell yah, 'Courtney' is becoming quite popular over here in the UK (God knows why - whenever I hear that name I always think of that fucked up, crackwhore Ms. Love rolleyes ) my 4 year old goes to nursery with 2 Courtney's, both little white girls shrug

As someone who's worked in HR for 10 years, as has my mother for 25 years, we've both witnessed hiring managers throw the resumes of those with "ghetto" names in the trash. It happens all the time.

Some things aren't funny to me regardless of whether a black or white comedian says it. People's personal experiences definitely "color" what they find amusing and not. That's why we all have different tastes. I just don't think it's all that funny. No biggie. shrug

And if JimBob's real name is James Robert I'm sure he ain't got to worry about ending up in the trash heap for his name.

I view those names as country not "white trash" OR "trailer park" cuz I know tons of black folks from the country with names like that. On the flip, there ain't a lot of white folks named these "ghetto" names. shrug

On the flipside of this, it really irks me when parents have absolutely no imagination when naming their kids. My name is Kerry and I went to school with no less than 7 other Kerry's... 5 of them were in my Maths class disbelief I swore up and down that I would NEVER name my kids with a 'beige' name, one that a stack of other kids would have, so that they could stand out on their own... now don't get me wrong, I didn't go mad, my girls are Faye and Elsa, which are slightly unusual without sounding made up, but at least they're distiguishable from the sea of Lilly's, Emma's, Evie's, Olivia's... etc

I hear ya cuz here in Texas in da 'burbs the plethora of "vanilla" names, among blacks AND whites, include Madison (2 among my family/friends), Grace (3 among my family/friends), Parker, Preston, Elijah (2 among my family/friends), Jordan/Jordin, Jett, Payton/Peyton and the list goes on to infinity. No imagination. There must be a balance, damn.

Every community has its' share of odd or questionable naming practices. A lot of Native folks are prone to giving their kids either "western" names like Shane and Dallas, or the kids get saddled with old-fashioned names. I happen to know personally a 15 year old named Edith. You try being a high school student in 2009 named Edith and see if you don't get made fun of for it. lol

The unfortunate thing is, parents don't realize when they name their children obviously "ethnic" sounding names, it sets them up for adult life. Countless studies have been done that reveal that when HR and possible employers see resumes with names such as these, they are passed up for interviews twice as much as people with names like Meliss or Jason or something.

I may catch hell, BUT with the exception of the standard deviation, it happens. Boyfriend and I are in agreement now. He has already said I'm not setting my child up. Race is such an issue in America and I'm not going to make it harder or even make their race stand out on paper too.

I can't handle names like this. Such a violent name to call a little baby. It's even worse when it's on girls.... neutral
