Births and names 25-NOV-06

By Kerces - 25 November 2006 25

Just a few exciting names in today’s births column.

First up is Jayden Neil Skellern: one for the exciting spellings book.

Also, Brayden Douglas Freund: his parents also followers of the highly popular -ayden pattern.

Next up is Rok Richard van Dalen: I’m wondering how old he’ll be before rebelling and using his middle name.

There was a set of triplets in today’s column: Monterra, Tane and Liam Rowe: how come Liam got a regular name?

And finally was Macey Jade (Nudie) Nash: this is how it appeared in the announcement. I’m not sure if nudie is some kind of unfortunate nickname, a tradition, a description or something else altogether.

What’s Your opinion?

Well, no-one is forcing anybody else to read it. ‘No likee, no clickee’ as they say.

I have to agree with some of the above posters. This was funny the first time round, now it just smacks of arrogance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m the first one to nudge the partner in the ribs and point out a ‘orrible bogan. It just seems to be a bit of an easy target to pick on happy parents who’ve done nothing more than follow a fashion trend.

it depends what your view on normal is. I agree that some of the names people come up with do sound terribly bogan, butno more than a whole bunch of christian names.

Johnboy they may be stupid and yes I have enough opinions to fill a book.. but as a rule they are generally right as well 🙂

i think, in the end… if the name has some kind of meaning to you, then it’s ok… but if you’re just making it up, spelling it weird, or wanting to be different.. then it just comes out bogan.

Bogan – the term people use when their superiority complex is raised.

Rok? Hope its a traditional family name.
Maybe their other kids are Paypa and Zizzas

There could be a point there. If you are a Christian then you would want your kids to have a Christian name – these are limited in number being linked to a saint (if there’s no saint who shares your name then you simply have a first name, rather than a Christian name). With an increasingly secular society, perhaps people are deliberately avoiding Christian names in favour of ones with less baggage attached. I doubt it though – in reality their probably simply ignorant bogans.

the stupid things that AD thinks could fill a large book.

That means we’re all bogans. Normal names for normal people

Absent Diane 10:54 am 26 Nov 06

I think people that apply normal christian names are equally as bogan, and for the most braindead. Word.

Was good for a few weeks – now its shit

There’s nothing finer than naming your child after luxury housing near Montery, California. That’s pure gold.

no doubt tane is pronound tar-nay which the bogan parent will be explaining to every single person young tane encounters for the next 50 years.

It’s not pointless at all. Its very funny to see mind-bogglingly stupid names assigned to unfortunate recipients each and every Saturday.

If no-one read it, it wouldn’t be accompanied by posts every Saturday arvo

Frequently one of our most popular segments.

Does anyone actually read this regular post? It’s kinda pointless …
