What's going on here?
Nameberry is not like other name forums. Nameberry has class, style, intelligence, and maturity. During the past few days, this site has been overtaken by appallingly rude and confontational posts, and disgusting name games which glorify teen pregnancy (with one teen getting knocked up at a party) and teen marriage.
In additon to this, newer members have been playing games without first reading the extremely easy to comprehend rules. Not only is this lazy, but it ruins the games for other people.
Such posts may be commonplace on other name sites, but they are not appropriate for nameberry.
Nameberry is the brainchild of Pamela Redmond Satran and Linda Rosenkrantz, two gifted authors and internationally recognized name experts who have written books dedicated to guiding people away from trendy, overused names, and towards stylish ones. They have created an intelligent and sophistacted site, and such immature posts are in direct contrast to everything for which Nameberry stands.
Whereas many name sites and books simply provide you with meanings and origins of names, Pam and Linda's books and site are unique, in that they advocate honesty when it comes to style. (One of their books is titled, "Beyond Jennifer and Jason, Madison and Montana." You need to pick the name that's right for you, but it's always a good idea to look around and notice a site's prevailing style before posting.
Nameberry has always been an intelligent, classy, and tranquil site, and these new posts and behaviors are disgusting. Grow up.
