Don't give your kid the wrong name

This is an article on another one of those "studies." I think it's hilarious that money is being wasted to pay these supposed intelligent people to perform these. If they can't think of anything better to do with their $, throw it my way.

Re: Don't give your kid the wrong name

On a slight side note, me and my bf have often joked that if we had a baby boy we could call him Tom Thom (Tom Tom ^^).
Could never be that cruel though!

LOL , I love the article's comments:

"More complete BS....."

"What a load of crap!"

"how much was spent coming up with this worthless info?"

Re: Don't give your kid the wrong name

Working in a elementary school, there are some names that I hope my children avoid using for their kids.

Mom of
Skin kids - Jason, Kevin, Allison
Canine kids - Bennett & Bailey (always in our hearts), Riley, Banker, Rogue and Boz
Feline kids - Zoey, Talley and Abra

That's interesting, what are some examples? Are those kids treated differently by the other children?

Oh but there are worse cities to name one's children after. Bristol's quite the cosmopolitan location.

Re: Don't give your kid the wrong name

There actually are males named Sue. And they're not Sarah Palin's children.
Do they grow up to be lawyers?

I wonder, is Arianwen a 'good' name?

That being said, I think most cats don't have behavioral issues.... But it makes me wonder....
