« on: December 13, 2012, 05:29:14 AM »

The data comes from more than 500,000 parents of new babies who shared their names with the site, which releases the gruesome list annually.

The Baby Centre claims that each of the names was given to at least two children this year "so it's not a fluke".

A name for a girl, "Thinn". Yeah, no complexes for that child.

I've ran into a "Rage" (actually a rather nice young fellow; though the rumor mill says mom should've changed her name to that) and Rooster (who pretty much lived down to his name).  Also Tequila (in honor of the night when she was accidently concieved; and yes her parents told her that).  However, what really drives me crazy are the made up spellings that bear no relationship to pronunciation rules.  Try pronouncing Krjstny.

Urban legend, so far cannot be confirmed nor denied.

La-a.

"It's pronounced Ladasha! The dash don't be silent!"

 :huh:

Some claim that this is based in racism, since the most common location given for this child is in a largely white parish in Louisiana, the story usually (wonder why?) expresses shock that anyone could be so stupid, and of course the phrasing of "The dash don't be silent" as opposed to "The dash isn't silent." However, Louisiana cajuns are considered "white", and anyone who has heard a thick cajun accent, hearing the above, would only be surprised that it was "The dash don't be silent" instead of "De dash, she doan be silent."

Except for the bad grammar, this has essentially happened in California. Yes, I 'speak' from first hand experience. So you now may say that La—a (let's spell it correctly!) does exist out there, on the authority that someone you know on the internet says so.
I'm sorry, but I fumbled my "think of clever signature" roll.

The basic point is that we all have an accent according to everyone else...

Absolutely. There's no such thing as "no accent."

I guess it shows how plastic language is, and that it changes quickly. For the better? Who can say.

Look how different Shakesperian English is for contemperary English.

I count myself lucky, in that when I was in college and taking theatre courses, my prof was careful to tell us to learn Middle English as if it was a foreign language. A lot of what trips people up with Shakespeare is that a lot of words are the same, but sometimes the meaning and often the usage has changed.

And accents? Don't get me started, I did Shakespeare in the Deep South of the US.

"Whut laht thue yawnder winder brakes."  :huh:

It's like listening to Shakespeare done by Larry the Cable Guy.

I remember a phrase from one of the Shakespeare's plays: "My nuncle", and the professor explained that it might be "Mine uncle".

That's a nice analysis of how the word "nuncle" originated. Are you a literature student?
