Name Quotes for the Weekend

From Melani of the blog 1 Year of Online Dating at 50:

I curse my mother for thinking it was avante garde to forgo the “E” on the end of my name. The current situation was only one baby example of why parents shouldn’t get creative when spelling their kid’s name. I’ve spent most of my life hearing my name pronounced, “May-lawn-ee” and then the following question, “Are you Hawaiian?”

Jesus, do I look like it?

From an LDS Living article on Mormon names:

Jennifer Mansfield, a current graduate student in the Folklore Program at Utah State University, identified six different types of Mormon names: religious (Moroni, Nephi, Brigham), combination (Taylee, Mandylyn), invented (Kaislen), creatively spelled (Kady, Taeler), ancestral (Freestone, Jenkin), and themed (Monson, Hinckley, Kimball).

From a New Zealander named India:

Having an unusual name is like being a celebrity – people assume you’re interesting, even if you’re not. Sometimes when I’m introduced to someone for the first time they actually say “I’ve been wanting to meet you; you have such a cool name”. That’s gotta be good, right?

From a Tipping Points post about baby names and cultural change:

Likewise, in the spread of baby names, Bentley and Ormerod think that social learning is what allowed for the increase in naming diversity, although immigration and the spread of multiple media may also have allowed individuals to copy each other in the first place.

From a Telegraph article about longevity:

The projections said that a third of babies born in 2012 would live to be 100, with nearly 40 per cent of baby girls compared to just under a third of baby boys reaching the milestone.

All the more reason to think way beyond the word “baby” when you look for “baby names.”
