I still think Katrina is a beautiful name. Why couldn’t the hurricane have been called, like Olga or something? Maddison (Madison, Madisyn, Maduhsunn, or what have you) is pretty but it’s wayyy overused.
DId anybody else think Heather’s was going to turn into ‘I let Jay pick the names because he only feels it kicking, so he picked Katrina, and I said no, that’s like a hurricane, so he picked Laura, and I told him that’s a whore’s name so he chose Lucy and I just told him to fuck off and named her Maddison’?
I don’t get the anger over ‘OMGZZ a white character from an old movie is black in a remake! That character can’t be black!’
That’s, uh… pretty much racism, to be so annoyed. To think a black person is so different that it’s just wrong to have him play this character.
Anyway I haven’t even seen the Karate Kid so fuck it, maybe the kid in the original WAS black. All I know is that Will Smith’s kid reminds me of the little brat out of Diversity and I hate that kid.
Your friendly neigborhood boring fuck, the Hobo. Signing out.
Or… moving on to the next post. Whatever.
British, you never saw Karate Kid!? Whoa! You’re missing out on some serious Mr. Mayaginess! Come on, I learned the fine art of ‘wax on, wax off’. What’s more awesome than that! (All kidding aside, you should watch it. Classic 1984 flick!)
No offense taken. I’m just tired of the same argument taking place on every race-themed Lamebook post. If the posts or comments are clearly racist, sexist, or homophobic, people need to step the fuck back and quit trying to play devil’s advocate. [/soapbox]
Seriously, though, you should watch Karate Kid. You can avoid the sequels, though – they all sucked.
is “Ashtyn” a boy or a girl’s name? why are americans so fucking retarded when it comes to naming their children? why must they insist on fucking up perfectly good names, like, I don’t know…adding an extra D to Madison for no particular reason other than to saddle the poor girl with a retarded name for however long she is forced to live with those retards.
“why are americans so fucking retarded when it comes to naming their children?”
Hey now, it’s not just Americans. I went to high school with a girl from El Salvador (technically “American”, yes. But I’m going off of what most people who say “American” mean. In other words, “from the U.S.”) named Jessica. Did she spell it that way? No. Jesika is how her parents chose to spell her name.
I’m sorry Maddison, I know you didn’t name yourself and may even LIKE your name (you have every right to). Those two just REALLY bug me for some reason. I don’t have a lot of pet peeves at all, but this has been one of them lately. *Sighs sadly and feels mean*
Am I missing something? Is there a way where one could tell these posts came from the United States? Not GB, Australia or Canada? If not, why in God’s name do you guys assume that every asshole on here is American? It aggravates me to no end.
Katrina isn’t a ghetto name first of all, it’s actually pretty normal between all of the names that I hear every time I see a talk show that usually Involves a paternity test. On the flip side I am tired of how every new baby boy I’ve seen or heard of in the past 2 years (usually white) is named Aidan, Brayden, Caden, Jaden, or Hayden. Not only do they all rhyme but I can’t even begin to guess how many different ways they are being spelled. How dumb.
Katey, my surname ends in “son” (does that count in your generalisation, I wonder), and although I’m female, I like the idea of adding “of a bitch” to the end of it.
I’ve never thought of it before (a bit like saying Jesus backwards sounds like sausage), so I’m going to introduce myself to people in the future that way, so thanks.
So sick of these people naming their daughters: Madison (do you want her to be a Bratz doll?), Makenzie, Olivia, Abby, Emily, Haley… Hot damn, get a little creative so there aren’t six in each kindergarten class. And don’t give her a stripper name like Destiny or Raven, either.
Maddison Lynn? or Tyler?! Those are some lame names, especially when the parents are selfish and spell it just a bit different thinking it will make their shit kid special. Katrina is a great name, every girl I met named Katrina is smokin hot! The man didn’t really get to name the baby, just suggest names until her fat ass agreed. Why add another name to it? Lynn at the end? that’s some bullshit.
John Smith<–Normal name!
John Carter Clarence Sundance-Smith<–Stupid name! Fuckin parents to day are fuckin dumb!
I don’t have a general problem with people giving their children unusual names. Most of the so-called “ghetto” names grew out of a desire not to give black children anglo-saxon slave names. Sadly rather than use actual African names the parents seem to throw a scrabble set in the air and see what comes out.
I also like the interchangeability of boy and girl names. There were the actresses Sean Young and Michael Learned, and I also dated an American woman called Shawn. It’s not uncommon in England either, the name Hilary being one that springs to mind.
However, it’s laziness and ignorance on the part of parents that irritates me. Two examples; Firstly, the African-American woman who called her daughter le-ah and got angry when no-one pronounced it correctly (see if you can get it right) And, secondly, the English couple a few years back who had obviously heard the girls name Siobhan and liked it but didn’t bother to find out how to spell it so called their daughter SheVaughan
Gotta love Heather. This is how I imagine it all unfolded:
Heather: “Seeing how I feel the baby so much and you only feel the kicks, I’ll let you choose the baby’s name. It’s 100% your choice, this is my gift to you”
Jay: “Oh babe, thanks so much! Well if it’s a girl I think we should name her Katrina Lynn and if…”
H: “Hell no! That would remind me of a black hurricane hooker! Try again”
J: “Oh. Well I don’t know, I always wanted to have a baby named Katrina, after my Mum, who I loved so much but died when I was only 12…”
H: “Aw babe, I’m sorry, but no. Black hurricane hooker won’t do for my daughter. Pick another name”
J: “Well I don’t know, you always said you liked the name Maddison but I…”
H: “OMG OMG OMG!! That would be soooooooo cute!! I love that name!!”
J: “And if it’s a…”
H: “If it’s a boy we should definitely name him Tyler! Aw babe I love these names! Thank you so much!”
I grew up in the south around a lot of white and black people, and yet I know no black people with the name Katrina. I have a white friend named Katrina who is a gorgeous cheerleader for a pro football team…she is definitely not hanging around a street corner, lol.
