    which would be Ex-zay-vyoor

    A linguistic abomination introduced by Americans incapable of pronouncing foreign words. Please don't saddle your kid with this; there are better ways to make him miserable.

    Like locking them in a room full of nothing but black/white/grey objects, like some sort of late '90s Express floor set or something, and never exposing them to color until their late teens. Every child is a new experiment.

    In Hartford there seems to be a lot of Puerto Ricans named Jesus (Hey-soos), I've always thought it sounded silly.

    call them 'chewy'. by mentioning the puerto ricans you've reminded me of the name 'hector'. i hate that one.

    'ashton' sounds like you are middle class and your mother gave you a name she thought sounded upper-class. perhaps she heard it in a soap opera.

    I dislike the name Michael. The awkward ae in the name always bugs me.
    I'm not real fond of Jack, John, George, or Robert.

    I'm also not real fond of the names Mary, Amy, Ann, Erin, or Joan.

    I actually like Jack quite a bit. I have only ever known one.

    Bismark. Roy (Roy Rogers excluded). Jackqueline or any other "cute" ways of spelling perfectly normal names. Dorothy.

    That's it for now.

    I second on liking "Jack."

    'Madison' is in the same boat.

    I had a friend named Blaise, I always thought it was a nickname spelled "Blaze" and thought it was retarded. Coincidentally, I also have a friend named Pascal.

    The Irish spelling of Michael (Micheál, pronounced mee-hawl) is better in my opinion. My middle name is Jack.

    I hate the name Tanner, and most Russian girl names.
