After watching a Movie called Predators and then the End Credit comes up with Director: Nimrod Antel i thought, why would Any Parent want to Name their Kid Nimrod. :confused::confused::confused:

The same with Dick http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/icons/icon4.gif

What Other Names are there and dont the Parents know if you name them that, People or Bullies will just look for an Excuse to mock you. :pi:

Different people like different names, it's all a matter of taste. Personally, I would never look at a baby and decide to name it Margaret, but people evidently did, and they do.

I like the name Lyra - I think it's very pretty, and if I had a baby girl I would probably want to name her that. Others would disagree.

I dont see anything wrong with Margaret or Lyra, so how would that be affective in Bullying. :confused:

Mercedesa.. from Mercedes - seriously? Gypsies use it really commonly.

Guess every country/ language has their funny name.. or weird :p

I'm not saying it would, I'm emphasising the fact that different people have different taste in names, weird or otherwise.

I know that Gaylord can be a last name, but isn't it used as a first name sometimes as well?

@Sandygrimm:
Mercedes is actually a īnormalī name, itīs just that it might seem weird now that a certain car manufacturer uses it too. :)

These on the other hand...

I always thought your name was awesome. It just has a badass ring to it. Like a jaded cop's name from CSI or something.

What about Richard Head? Richard sometimes being shortened to Dick. Hence, Dick Head.

Mercedesa.. from Mercedes - seriously? Gypsies use it really commonly.

Mercedes was a female name long before the car company.


Anyway, my friend stole my baby name (so SATC, right. The whole circus, we shared our baby names and now she took it for her kid). It's Mia and I still love it, but I can't believe she stole it.

The baby names I love are:

for girls: Diora, Vesper, Eden, Avery, Arden, Sunday, Ever, Ava, Heidi, November, June and Serenity.

for boys: Maximilian Arthur, Luke Joseph Alexander and William Brighten Logan.

they just sound like old people names to me :/ You arent giving birth to a 90year old, so dont name your baby that :p

I can imagine a gentleman tap-dancing into view, wearing a tuxedo and top hat. He'd shake my hand and say...

"Greetings, sir. I'm Hugh Jarse."

And my reaction would be something like...

"PFFFFFFFFFFFFFT!"

nimrod is a name in hebrew, which origins in the jewish bible, its one of the varations for the word "stupid", obviously, it's laughable by people who don't know that.

imo it is a pretty name. ;)
