This is not a new rant—I posted back in 2006 (Are they serious?) about the same thing.
So this new list of names are mostly from the birthday lists at Owen’s daycare/preschool (the entire county-wide system, not just his location or his class) over the past few weeks.
Mai Anh (turns out this is a common Asian name)
And these are almost (ALMOST) worse to me:
Now, while some of those may be perfectly legit ethnic names, others (I’m looking at you, Jariandelyz!) are just people being silly. I know to each their own and I shouldn’t care but I kinda do. I guess I’m just not that kind of person (hence Owen and Katie).
