i've got a top 10 baby name from my birth year. common spelling.

i still have to spell my name for people on a regular basis. it's 4 letters long. it's mind-boggling how dumb people are.

People can't spell "Mark"?

I’ve taught several Sydnee’s- that’s a fairly normal name now 

That’s real common. I have maybe 50 kids in my school with the random capital but it’s usually because there is an apostrophe in there (N’Keal Harry).

Is it nuh-keal or en-keal?

Nuh-Keal...or atleast that is how I hear it pronounced. He's not a student of mine, but one of the top WRs in the draf this year. I just thought it was an example people might be familiar with.

It's the greatest sporting event in March, and it just started: The 2019 Name of the Year bracket

Texas beauty pageant contestant Jizyah Shorts is probably the chalk pick. But my eye is on the first round matchup between 8 seed Dijonnaise Norman and 9 seed Eriberto Pop Can. 

Manchester United MacGyver is a solid #3 seed.

Not really feeling the Sithole region, where maybe Princehoward Barebecue Yee might emerge from a mostly middling group (mostly because of that extra E in barEbecue). The Chrotchtange bracket has more interest, with Chastity Gooch-Fant potentially positioned for a good run. And I think whoever emerges from the 3/14 pairing of Rev. Pix Butt vs Kermit Sprinkles could go deep as well.

 

The 2019 Name of the Year Championship Matchup is Jizyah Shorts vs. Pope Thrower

Went to the doctor last week for annual checkup.  Signed my name onto the clipboard up front, and noticed two names of patients that had signed in earlier. 

Dick Hertz and Chanda Lear 🤣

my goodness, Thrower out of nowhere. Deicide Huxtable looked like a lock out of that region to me.

that's why they play the games.

Anyone else see a problem with the above?

Kim and Kanye named their child "Psalm".  WTF?

It's their way of saying "Pray for this child, they are going to need it..."

My son is in 9th grade and one of his friends (female) has the 1st name Heaven.When he first started talking about her my wife and I looked at each other and asked him "What did you say her name was?" Heaven's Mother and my wife have become Facebook friends. We have found out her children's names are Heaven Lee and November Rain.

None of these are unique to this thread, just thought it was funny.  My nephew played in their 9U baseball state tournament this past weekend.  One team they played decided to put first names on the back of their jerseys instead of last names.  Their starting lineup:  Caden, Hayden, Brayden, Jaiden, along with a Grayson, a Carson, and twins Kamdyn and Kamryn.   And their shortstop, Joe :)

Novembralina Wreign

What's the thought on Blakely for a girl, but spelled Blakley?

This is why following spelling and pronunciation rules is important, kids.

Dymin, Leilani, and Broden on the class lists this year.  There are a couple of odd spellings of common names, but overall pretty low key year for names.  Maybe parents are turning the corner...
