Name Tags on a Field Trip
I get to see a lot of names of elementary school kids in my work at a museum when we do field trips. Today, I saw some doozies on eight-year-olds from a district where the majority of the kids were Hispanic. I'm not trying to be discriminatory, I think there were some pretty and interesting names there, but there were also some that I didn't know how to pronounce.
Nixy (I was so happy to see this in real life on a lovely little girl!)
There are some I can't even remember how to spell that were like:
Jansel (pronounced "JAN-suhl" -- I called him "Hansel"!)
Tyni (pronounce "tuh-NYE")
pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
(if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )
IF YOU LOVE IT, USE IT!
