My friend is due with a little girl. The baby's ethnicity is English/Irish/Dutch and African American. A lot of people are commenting on how she should name her baby a "biracial" name. What girl names do you think work for multi racial people? Does it matter? She's not interested in stereotypical names.
She mentioned that she likes the names
Any other suggestions?

I can understand where people would be coming from. They are concerned if the name is too "white" she might not be accepted into the black community. Is it right? Of course not! It sounds dumb! But the thoughts are there, and the people who are saying these things might not even realize how racist they sound!
That being said, my niece is due in late May and will be biracial. Her name is going to be Ella Pearl. Honestly, she can name her whatever she wants and I don't think she should worry so much about a name being biracial. I have had students who are biracial named Samantha and Charles, and others name Dante and Kanisha. It should really just be her preference and whatever she feels fits her lifestyle and her daughter.Maeby Alana ❤ Saela Eliza
