Births and names 14-OCT-06

By Kerces - 14 October 2006 41

Well there was bumper crop of births in today’s BirthsDeathsMarriages (and yes, I did spot the Little Git in there) which brought a bumper crop of interesting names.

The first isn’t bogan as such, but I think the parents just couldn’t decide what species their precious little flower was: Jessica Rose Lotus Rees.

This one I read three times before realising they hadn’t actually named their child Aryan. Perhaps it is rather an entry for the phonetic spellers out there: Aran Christopher Freemantle Moody.

Another victory for fans of phonetics was this little girl: Jorja Annie Hamilton.

The way this name works out interested me; I think it sounds like two precious stones and one not so precious: Jaida Pearl Cole

But my favourite one for this week has exciting spellings all round: Mikayla Jenifer Loughton.

What’s Your opinion?

Heaps of Muslims are named Mohammed (in it’s myriad of spellings)…I wonder why Westerners shy away from the name ‘Jesus’.

What would the bogan spelling of loki be though?


Dee Bliss 11:50 am 15 Oct 06

Ebola, Anthrax or Syphilis would be spiggin’ bogan names. Or Sphincter.

There’s tonnes of ppl names ‘Jesus’ in South America and hispanics in the U.S. It is pronounced ‘Hey-zeus’ though.

*te he* Die Hard references

Loki is pretty bogan. On that note you don’t see many kids called Jesus. Is the name off limits because some bloke 2000 years ago told some stories.

Mary was the most popular name throughout the 20th Century.

if I ever step up to the society plate and have little life enders and name them after like a norse god (i like the name loki) or something completely gay like that – something interesting from history or mythology. Would that be bogan?

I kind of figure it would be bogan if you had certain prejudices…say for example you hated the japanese so you named your child enola.

I do love that we’re creating living monuments to functional illiteracy.

“Jorja” in particular, which is a shame as i’ve always had a thing for girls galled Georgia.

We had a son in Canberra hospital on the 5th, in the room was a card left over from the previous resident…from x, y and son Kaylen welcoming the arrival of a Tahneesha. WTF are they thinking?

BTW, we named ours Toby.

I met an acquaintance today with her new baby. As you do, I enquired of the infant’s name. The answer: Masen. Spelt like that. Oh, how original, I say through a polite smile.

His sisters are called Denver and Kendall. Yup.

But she called them ‘designer’ names. I assume designer names match the designer brand clothing – Fred Bare, Esprit and whatever expensive gear her kids wear.
