    Poor people seem to love adorning their spawn with 'J' names, frequently with bizarre spellings. I can remember the teen mommiez of my middle and high schools fawning over the prospect of Jordynns to be.

    Note that my non-kayfabed name begins with a 'J.'

    steve (steven is okay. i don't like 'stephen'.) it's alright so long as it isn't pronounced Steffan
    franklin (frank is okay.) -- old skool names are awesome
    joshua
    kyle
    seth -- eww
    frederick, federico
    leonard, leonardo
    lionel
    guillermo (spanish for 'william')
    bill (william os okay.)
    henry, hank
    barry -- ewww
    raphael, rafael
    hugo



    So many different names and it is hard to comment on anything but English names, however, I don't like the way most asian names sound.

    Off the top of my head, the name Carl has never been easy for me to say.

    If I have boys I will give them old skool names like Xavier, Montgomery, Frederick. Though for girls I think it would be a bit cruel to give them a name like Gwenovere.

    Tyler is pretty contemptible. Still don't feel bad about knocking you out in the machine pitch dugout you little fuck.

    I LOVE these names. Alistair is one of my faves. I'll have to have you name my kid by picking the one you hate most.

    Yes Tyler or Taylor I don't like. I don't like beachy sounding names like Dylan or Brett either.

    i had a business meeting a few months ago in which every guy in the room, except for yours truly, had a one syllable name. everyone was either a mike, a steve, a todd, a brad, a bob, etc... i'm usually good at remembering people's names, but in this case i was lost.

    i don't dislike frederick for being old skool,. i just dislike the sound.

    xavier is a great name, but i don't recommend it for your son. it is basque, and unless your son speaks basque, french, or spanish, he will live his life mispronouncing his own name. "zay-vee-er" sounds ugly.

    It would be pronounced however I say it would be, which would be Ex-zay-vyoor, only problem with the name is what the hell would be a nickname? I'd have to choose one that looks distinguished on a resume but can have a few nicknames to choose from. Or maybe I could afrofy it by going ExAHYvyahTAYshawn.
