Spelling a name different does not make the name unique.

What happened to congrats as reply to someone who welcomes a new child?

the way you dos.

The president’s name is Barack. The head of the RNC is Named Reince. A former Presidential candidate is named Rand and other Mitt with another VP candidate with a kid named Tagg & grandkids Track and Tripp. How about Senator Saxby Chambliss? Ghetto too?

Why don’t we ridicule people from Montana who name their kids Jenji, Declyn and Braelyn?

I thought by now we knew to stop labeling people’s children’s name as “ghetto” and other racist things!? I guess not.

I guess this is one way to TRY and get him to marry her after the first engagement was broken.

“name is pronounced “Drew,” naturally. ” There is nothing natural about that. Poor child. What is wrong with his parents? Just name the kid “Drew” if that is the name you want.

Like “Hi – My name is ‘Xiyäniyah’ it’s is pronounced ‘Anna’ NATURALLY”
