    It appears to not be common amongst Finnish-Americans though. Or at least not that I have noticed

    That's it. Thanks! But the difference between Hedwig and Hashtag to a white bread liberal American is nothing. I just assumed it means something and respect that. Thanks. But the movie is a bit 'off' and perverse, which is my kind of movie but not to most people's likings.

    One of my friends has a student in her class with the last name Potter. I'm betting you can guess what his first name is...

    I took my mother to Walmart today and the person at the cash register was named Destony.
    When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

    I watched a NE Patriots game vs the Jets recently and learned that the Jets have a player named D'Brickashaw Ferguson. Please, don't name any more babies D'Brickashaw!

    Remember Destiny Hooker, the seriously fierce volleyball player from the Olympics? Bad name, totally awesome volleyball player.

    Sixty Years from Now....

    "Grandpa Ethan, how come Grandma Hashtag has such a weird first name?"

    "Well, John, once, a very long time ago, there was such a thing as Twitter and...."

    Dear God. My husband's grandmother's(born early 1900's) name was Hedwig. Just off the boat from Germany,less than 5' tall, built like a cannonball, refused to learn English, never became a citizen. Read the movie synopsis and nearly split a gut.

    My husband's aunt, named by her off the boat parents (one from Poland, one from Germany) named her Jadwiga, and her brother Ignatius Stanislaus, my husband's favorite uncle.

    They renamed themselves Mickey and Duke.

    My husband wanted to name our youngest son Ignatius Stanislaus after his uncle. I refused to go along with that one...: Naming our eldest after his father & grandfather Ludwig Simnon was quite enough. I mean there is a reason Mr. Ski goes by Ski & his dad went by Louis, not to mention Mickey & Duke.

    Louis, Mickey & Duke all renamed themselves when they hit elementary school. Which I hope is something that Hashtag, Destony, and some of the other children mentioned in this thread do.

    I worked for a short time for a company that sold contact lenses over the phone and online. I'm not sure why, but everyone used aliases. We had a Stormee, Ayshia, Ram, Mistye, and other names that sounded like porn stars. One kid in my training class named himself Dawson, as he liked Dawson's Creek, which was one of the more humdrum names. When asked for my alias, I went with Jane Peabody, which sounds very competent to me. The trainer seemed to be somewhat put out, and demanded to know what kind of stupid name is that? I always wondered why these folks didn't work in adult phone chat.

    I always liked Germanic names like Helga, Ludwig, and Wolfgang, myself.

    On the Australian series of Kath and Kim (not the rancid American version that just totally didn't work), when Kim was pregnant and they were looking t names they found some "interesting and unique" ones after a day at the hospital. Names such as Papiloma, Enema, Lupus (for a boy)...
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Names You Will NEVER Give Your Children

    Certainly not one of the recent Top 30 girls and boys names in my country, even though I actually like some of them. It should be a unique and beautiful name, probably rare, on the other hand not too eccentric, of course.

    I call my cleaning lady Helga. I get so disappointed when she polishes the floor and doesn't move the tree. Ballistic sometimes.
