Now I know my... daughter?

The mother of Abcde 's got some 'splainin' to do.

The good news is, I suppose, that the girl will know how to spell her name as soon as she knows her ABCs - it'll take most of the kids featured on this blog a lot longer than that.

that is freakin dumb. How would you even pronounce it?

Just wanted your opinion on a few names. Mostly because I love to hear you rant.

In a magazine or something, I found the name "Chelsea" spelled "Chellsie." I like it. What do you think?

There was a book a long time ago called "Ella Menow Pea." What do you think of that as a name? I would never do it. Just wanna know what you think.

I kinda like the name Danyell. Since as long as I can remember I've wanted a daughter names Lexis. I didnt even want a full name. But It's only fair to her, so I'm thinking about Alexis Danyell. What do you think?

Absidy, perhaps?

I think Chellsie would probably get her name spelled Chelsea a lot.

I loved the book Ella Minnow Pea, though it's obviously nothing you should name a child. Mostly because "Minnow" and "Pea" are rather odd names - wouldn't you agree?

I think Alexis is far nicer than Lexis, since Lexis is rather like Lexus (the car) and Lexis-Nexis (the document search engine). Danyell looks far nicer as Danielle, if you ask me, but as it would be in the middle spot, I suppose I can't complain.

oh course chellsie would be mistaked for the more popular, and I do think that is something to consider, but I still think it looks nice. like my mom, her name is Lynda. so of course she is always correcting people, but I think it looks better. Alexis would still be called lexis. ive liked that name long before i knew what a car was. i dont know why. and yes, danielle looks better. however, I dont like how unbelievably common it is...
a few years ago, I wanted twins, a boy and a girl so I could name them Kristofer and Khourtini. so I'm certainly one of those that you usually scold on this blog. ive over thought the khourtini thing and although I really really like it, i dont think a kid should get such an extravagant name when they have no say in the matter. and I do still plan on naming my son Kristoffer. but with two F's. go ahead, tell me how muh you hate it. lol. but you have got to admit "Kristoffer Edward Snider" sounds like a beautiful name.

Honestly, I am having trouble taking you seriously. There's a big difference between being Linda with a Y and having to correct that, and being a Kristoffer or Khourtini in an English-speaking society. Can you imagine having to spell your name every. single. time. you give it to someone? Khourtini doesn't even spell "Courtney" - English phonics dictate that it sounds like "coor-TEEN-ee," like a martini made of Coors.

Danielle and Danyell are exactly the same name, spelled differently. A Danyell wouldn't be any different from a Danielle, except that she would have to spell her name for people all the time. I would never do it to my kids, honestly.

Christopher Edward Snider would be lovely.

Abcde's mom is a jackass. She didn't even try to give her child a real name. Why do some people even have kids, they obviously aren't that into them.

well as I said. I'm over the khourtini thing. I was like 13. but i still like the kristoffer. maybe by the time i actually have a son, that will change. But for now...I like it. and yes..I can imagine spelling my name everytime. My name is Jacquelyn Yvonne Bustilloz. so i always have to say its lyn not line. and yvonne ppl usually have to ask..and dont even get me on the last name.

as for Danyell, it will be a middle name if I use it. so i am not worried too much.
