We had to pick a name popular 80 years ago to avoid all coworkers and kids from school we used to know.
@Hotchkiz, you named your child adolf?
Guys haircut telling me it’s either going to be Dustin, Kai, Chad, or Braxton
@Your Darkest Secret, you for got Mason, Madison, and Thomas if it’s a girl.
Imagine being a teacher, all the annoying kids you've dealt with every year
@Shelbshock, yep. My second son came after I was teaching four years. Every biblical name is OUT for boys. Archangels? HELL NO. Everyone in the room knows who they are (big loud presence - you know... LIKE AN ARCHANGEL). Obscure ass name only mentioned once? SUPER HOLY HELL ON WHEELS. Isiah, Ezekiel, Jacob, Malachi, Jedidiah, Etc. The more biblical the name... the WORSE THE KID IN A SCHOOL SETTING.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, what about the standard biblical names like Peter or Robert?
What about Cain and Abel?
@SchroedingerPussPuss, how about Jesus?
@SchroedingerPussPuss, what about God?
@PippyPie, Peter is surprisingly not too bad. Robert’s act up and everyone is annoyed by them (including students). They say stupid shjt like “I’m GETTING GED AT 16 AND JOINING THE ARMY”... not with that lazy eye you aren’t ROBERT. Abel’s have always been my top pot heads. Not bad, just too high to recognize their own hands some days. Jesús is never a bad kid because he’s always SKIPPING. Can’t be a pain in my ass if you’re NEVER THERE. No God’s or Yahweh’s yet. Abraham’s are super apathetic. Don’t ever want to work. Never had a Moses, but a coworker did. Disruptive, doesn’t know how to use a pencil.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, what about:
@Chula Charlie, Matthew’s extremely bright but LAZY AF. Will go above and beyond to not do work, and will ghost both teachers and parents. Mark’s are COCKY AF and usually short. Michael’s invented ADHD. Micah’s love the phrase “my daddy is a lawyer”. Michaiah - haven’t experienced. Mason- sarcastic, well read, will say whatever they can to try and personally hurt a teacher (doesn’t work well because we are all dead inside). Malachi thinks he’s funny and a badazz but usually just a follower who acts up for attention of his friends. The absolute worst because they are so capable but act like a clown shoe to have friends. Matthias haven’t had. Moses - disruptive and doesn’t know how to use a pencil. Sleeps through all exams. Usually special education but only because they don’t do ANY work so it’s assumed they have a learning disability
@SchroedingerPussPuss, not all biblical names, but what about Corey, Cade, Caleb, Christian, Cyrus, Corinth
@Killing instincts , So I actually have a lot of these because my last district would give me 160 kids for each school year... anyway, Corey’s know enough to get by but are almost always fat cats and super lazy. Haven’t had a Cade, Caleb’s are good people but super lazy and bargain to get out of work. I’ve literally taught 3-4 Christian’s and for some reason all have been autistic (weird coincidence). Very hard to get motivated to work. So not horrible kids, just extremely hard to work with 70% of the time. Cyrus likes to graffiti EVERYTHING and has that CUHHHHHH haircut. Even though it’s a guy, always has that elongated ghetto girl muyahhhhhhhh thing with their tongue.... Corinth is a city in North Dallas. Filled with Karen c*nts
@SchroedingerPussPuss, my name is a pretty obscure Bible name. My teacher’s all loved me.
@wtninja, I’m glad there are exceptions to the rule. Unfortunately it proves more true than false 😅
@SchroedingerPussPuss, that’s fair. I have pretty bad experience with people who have “virtue” names like Patience or Chastity. Also Nicholas.
@wtninja, why tf would anyone think REVERSING “Heaven” would be a good thing? What’s the REVERSE of heaven? HELL. It’s HELL. And I’ve never known a “chaste” Chastity. Always lost their virginity before sophomore year.
I've named three people and it was weird every time. Pro tip: If you like one plug it into behindthename.com and you can see popularity rankings and sometimes people with that name will talk about it, including nicknames or teasings they've gotten from it.
Dude out kicked his coverage.
@CHEisme, must be a musician
Is she looking for the person that stole her shirt?
This is probably why people give their kids stupid names these days
@FaceGhost, Nah. They just want to feel super duper special. Then poor kid has to live down that choice.
@Darkbear, like the lady who named her son Vagina
@FaceGhost, or my high school friend who named her child Bartholomyw. Yes, with a “Y.”
That lady looks protein deficient. I am blood type O so I volunteer to donate.
