• Because there are males and females. You can name your kid big fat idiot if you want! I don't care! I do find it curious, however that Santa is a female name in the Spanish. What's up with THAT?!

      Is "Fernando" a rnale or fernale name? LOL Just joking with you. Seriously, though, do you have a PO Box or something where I can send you a new keyboard? I can't irnagine going without the letter m for that long.

      Maybe if you aren't comfortable with any of that, I can just give you a bunch of m's that you can copy and paste as you see fit: M M M M M M M M m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m Let me know if you run out and I'll send you more.

      ROFL! I don't think she knows how to cut and paste. But good idea!
  • Because for many thousands of years, there were only male and female children born who needed names. 9/22/23
  • Maybe even more shocking is that a huge proportion of popular girls' names started out as boy names. I grew up in the 1980's while a lot of this was actively changing. Here were some boy names in the early 80's that were girl names by the late 80's: Addison, Arden, Aubrey, Bailey, Blair, Blakely, Charley, Dana, Daryl, Delaney, Harley, Harlow, Harper, Haven, Kelly, Kendall, Kennedy, Kim, Kinley, Leighton, Lesley, Lindsay, Madison, Mckenzie, Mckinley, Monroe, Morgan, Paris, Payton, Presley, Quinn, Reagan, Reese, Remi, Riley, Robin, Sandy, Shannon, Skylar, Stacy, Stevie, Sydney, Taylor. It's even worse if you have slavic roots- for some reason, Americans tend to think typical slavic macho names sound feminine. Alexis, Alexey, Nikola, Nikita, Jasmin... and pretty much any diminuative form of a masculine name: Sasha, Kesha, Pasha, Misha, Dima, .... Would you name a little girl Ivan or Grigory? I guess it wouldn't even surprise me at this point. Anyway, girl names, for some dumb reason, tend to go out of fashion periodically, and what do parents do when this happens? Evidently, they start naming their little baby girls after famous presidents, athletes, or Russians? IDK, it makes no sense to me. But, I've got a kid in Kindergarten now and it seems like all of the girls in his class are named things like Madison, Kennedy, Nixon, McKinley, Tyler, Taylor, Reagan, Washington, Quincy-Adams, etc. IDK, can you name a girl Obama or Bush? Sure why not? Garfield? I guess - probably lots of people associate the name with a comic book cat. Trump?! Yeah, go ahead and name your daughter after a slang term for passing gas, just because it was a president's last name. What's in a name anyway? Bostjan - WTF is that? It's probably some country bumpkin misunderstanding the name Sebastian a couple hundred years ago and naming their kid that, then someone else thought it sounded cool, so it caught on enough that it was a thing. Might as well name your kid "Begpardonididntquitehearthat."
