    if you name a kid beef, you are basically daring god to make him five-six and like 110 lbs

    i did not think about that

    but that would not prevent him from working out and being bulky as shit

    and if the kid is scrawny you can just make another, name that one Beef, change the other ones name to something, and repeat until you get a successful Beef child

    I remember reading EGM one time during my teenage years and there was a letter talking about how a nerd and his nerd-wife named their daughter Rinoa after the Final Fantasy VIII character. I shared this story years later with the girlfriend and she loved the name and I had to explain to her that, no, it was not a good name because of the horrible implications it would put on us.
    She has not played nor seen Final Fantasy so I guess I understand how she wouldn't realize what she was saying.


    women.

    I'm not getting how she ended up saying that she thought it was a good name. Did you ask her if she thought it was good? Because she shouldn't have been talking unless you asked her a direct question.

    Dorky, definitely. Borderline abusive? I dunno about that, duder.

    You know, like, psychological abuse. Naming a boy "Darthmaul" because you are a pathetic dork basically invites him to have no friends. It's far worse than an ordinary name like Reginald ("Reggie" is OK) or Julian (people will just assume he's gay, but at least "Jules" seems less gay).

    what about the name Beef

    it is not nerdy

    the kid would grow up being the most manly and popular of all the school kids

    My nickname is Beef.


    I like it as a nick name, but if I were actually named that, I'd probably be kind of upset.

    I like my nickname.


    I'm saying that I wouldn't like it if it was my real name.


    So, after further analysis, yes, you're right, having a nickname that I don't like would definitely be worse than having a nickname I do like.

    Or were you suggesting being nicknamed Lowtax would be worse than being actually named Beef?

    My mom wanted to name my brother Dominic. My dad put his foot down and he became Nicholas. I can't imagine having to call him 'Dom'. WTF mom?

    Then she goes and names my little sister after BOTH my grandmothers. You've seen my last name, it's 12 letters long with 4 syllables (5 with the original Italian pronunciation), so this woman gives my sis a 9-letter, 3-syllable first name that cannot be easily shortened. Thank god she restrained herself and gave her 'Rose' as a middle name.
    All in all her name totals: 25letters, 8syllables.

    People, don't do this to your children. They still have to go through kindergarten/first-grade.

    Contrary to popular belief, getting your toys broken and your face spit on by a bunch of bigger kids does not magically transform you into some sort of gigantic unstoppable fighting force.

    It turns you into one of those kids who wears trenchcoats and tells bullshit stories about how you totally survived a knife fight with seven mexicans at the mall and all you got was this tiny wound on your neck that you are covering with a tiny band-aid that looks a lot like a popped zit.

    You know, kinda like Commie.

    All im sayin is that trying to name your kid after Sphiroth on the sly is a good way to doom him to a lifetime of snickers from the other dads that get the joke and the rest of the people around him calling him Seth or something.
