Rosetta Stone - Why is it bad?
So I have written a few threads about Rosetta lately. Its dainty, but mysterious. It reminds me of folk music, flowing skirts and roses. I know what the Rosetta Stone is, the program etc. but I don't really understand why its a negative association. Maybe its my ignorance, but would you please explain it to me?
Thanks Berries!Still hoping to change my username Sweet Amara... Fingers crossed!
I loved Elsa before it she was cool I saw her as this mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own kind of girl. She'd also honour my grandmother and great-grandmother from Deutschland.
Ronan will be my future son's name for the sake of spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous. And in memory of Ronan Sean Thompson.

Because it opens the door to teasing. Would you name a child after a store or a theater or a restaurant? Probably not.

I don't understand why it would be negative either. Rosetta Stone is a language program, and the Rosetta Stone itself was an ancient slab that helped people understand the meaning of Egyptian hieroglyphs... I think there is some controversy over where the Rosetta Stone is kept? But I can't imagine that ruining the name.

I think it's sort of because that's ALL people think of. Along the same vein, I lovelovelove Linus, but every person I see in real life that knows I love Linus gives me a crazy look--because it's so connected to Peanuts. I guess people just don't like to have a name with such a strong connection to just one thing in pop culture. I know a Rosetta, actually. She wears it well. I always just saw it as any other Rose name until after I didn't see her so much and everyone keeps talking about the language programme. It's sweet, and Rosie and Etta are adorable.Lise
