Thread: Naming laws - what do you think?
April 3rd, 2014 08:08 PM #86
Ick. I didn't expect while reading through this that this would become a tea party tirade. That was a bit jolting to endure.
Anyway, I am not opposed to naming laws, especially in countries like Poland and Iceland where gender and grammer are such huge issues when considering a name. Most Latin based languages have the same issue, though I don't know if those countries have naming laws. I think even some rudimentary laws (no naming them anything obscene) would be beneficial. We may have "rights" here in the USA (ok the whole civilized world), but our children are not our property and we shouldn't be naming something that will harm their self esteem (like naming them Shithead or something to the effect). Beyond offensive names, though, I don't think laws like this would work in English speaking countries as English is a mutt-language and the USA in particular is a mutt-culture. I may not personally like Renesmee [cringe] or Nevaeh or Jaxxson, but that doesn't mean other people who do like those names shouldn't be able to use them if they choose - and I am not saying that is what other countries are doing. A PP stated there is a child named Awesome in Denmark, so it is not like the laws are super restrictive.Mommy of Juniper Teagan & Pyrus Nikolai
