Of course you should learn the country's language, it should be one of the requirements to become an ordinary citizen. Not that you should speak it fluently, but knowing basic grammar and stuff like that.
The names... I don't give a shit.

BladeSLicer

In EVERY case?

People of English/Irish/French/Italian/German descent generally stick with their ancestral names. There's just a load of em and we therefore hear those names often and have grown accustomed to them. Names like the one you mentioned are rarely used, as the populace which uses them is rather small in America, and we therefore get all pissy about it.

Personally, I don't mind it at all. Gives me plenty of names to giggle quietly to myself about.

I could understand the other people wanting your child named john or bob or whatever if the name you are going to pick can not even be pronouced. I think mostly because when they grow up and are in school. If his name is ackerjaueornmasdows. Then he/she will be mad fun of all day long till he brings a knife/gun/bomb/potatoe cannon to school and goes postal. BUT when it all boils down to it, its your child, name it whatever you want.

But please don't name it after a car make or model. My mom is an art teacher and she has 3 girl students who are all sisters and they are named, Porsche, Infinity, Lexus. I'm dead fucking serious.

Allowed: Violence; Number 16 Bus Shelter; Midnight Chardonnay; Benson and Hedges (twins)


Blocked: Yeah Detroit; Stallion; Twisty Poi; Keenan Got Lucy; Sex Fruit; Fat Boy; Cinderella Beauty Blossom; Fish and Chips (twins)


I mean come on, naming your twins Benson& Hedges??? LOL ( a Brand of smokes for those who dont know)

I did used to work with a guy called Levi Budwieser though, although he obviously had way to much acid one time and he changed it to that himself.

These folks are ridiculous. You can name your child what ever you want.

My family takes names very seriously we feel that they should be unique and should mean something. Hell if I were to name my kid "bob" or "Jack" I'd get the evil eye constantly from my folks.

I'm just going to say that me and my siblings all have unique names not typical western names and I think that is important. I am not knockin western names by the way.

I'm a Yankee and black/mixed and if I had children with a black or mixed woman I see know problem giving my child an Irish, Italian or some sort of Indian name. What ever catches me and doesn’t sound utterly ridicules to me or my family.

Giving your children traditional names usually doesn't help them out with life in the USA.

I would say name them a traditional name, but give them an American nick name. That is probably what I would do. Like I knew a kid name "Neal", but his real name as "Aneillo". And my one friend "Jasphinder", liked to be called "Jaz".

So you were asking in Islam, why it is blasphemous to speak badly about Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, while it isn't so to do so about Jesus, someone with the most tenuous relation to Islam? Pardon me, but that seems like a dumb question with a really obvious answer.

It has nothing to do with being 'more okay'.
There just aren't any buildings being torched over a stuffed animal being called Jesus. If we assume with 'more okay' you mean 'less/no protests or rage' then it's 'more okay' to call a stuffed animal Jesus because people are less offended by it and don't feel a need to protest about it.

I guess people don't consider a stuffed animal called Jesus as being worth becoming furious about.

I made a topic about the US educational system being quite flawed. In my first post I already stated that I did not intend to insult all Americans, I was just criticizing a failing eductional system. It soon got turned into a US vs Europe war and I said some anti-American things cause I was pissed at the Americans on this forum that kept attacking Europe while my intent was never to start a US vs Europe flame war.

Later I made a topic about thanskgiving and it was considered anti-American as well. If you see me as an anti-American extremist then everything I write is likely to appear anti-American to you. There are plenty of things the US government does that I disagree with but that counts for many governments. If Americans feel offended(while that's not even my intent) because I don't agree with the war in Iraq then that's their problem.

Call me eurofag and I'll call you yank. Say you want to hunt some redskins and flower the crops with their blood but don't blame me for insulting the country that breeds people that make such statements in response to them insulting my race.

What if a parent wanted to legally name their kid Christ Fucker? Your kid would have to hear it in school all the time. Would that be ok?

You are a fucking toolbag.

Not even close. Not even in the top 10.

Daniel Tosh would probably be my favorite, but there are several close seconds.

Because you are trying to use outlandish hypothetical examples to justify your being an intolerant borderline racist?

WTF are you talking about, I'm in favor of naming people whatever you want. I brought it up because I read an article, linked later on, about New Zealand limiting legal names. And fuck you for calling me a racist!

Sorry i guess i misinterpreted the intent with which you made that comment, but i didn't say you were a racist i just said you were intolerant and borderline racist :D.

I just assumed that you were one of the MANY ridiculous people in the world who try to use bullshit tactics to justify their intolerance/ignorance.

My bad.

Some guys who work at my place feel that this african co-worker is being racist for naming his new child with a Nigerian name.
Apparently, (they say) if he wants to live in the western world, he should act like a westerner and that starts with speaking the language, and includes naming your kids with western names.

Somebody should run those guys over with a semi. He should be able to name his kid Satan if he wanted =\

...you name your kids with non-regional names from 'back home' and refuse to consider traditional names from the country you've moved to?

ill name my kid "pol pot" "saddam" "pinochet" "adolf" but because im a neonazi nationalist ill name him/her "benito mussolini" all as a name then the surname.

If your kid is gonna grow up in the western world, its best to give him a western name.

Traditions and cultures blow.

Im naming my kid something that doesnt give away religion or nationality.

But you can name it whatever the fuck you want, its your sperm.

Well having non normal names has become alot more accepted in recent years. With the mixture of cultures etc. I view it as a good thing. Kinda annoying to know 15 different people with the same name;)

You barely hear that name around these parts. Mostly old people are named 'Olav', 'Uno', 'Göte', 'Sten', 'Ulf' and names like that.
These days most kids/teenagers are named 'Alexander', 'David', 'Daniel', 'Kim', 'Simon', 'Andreas' Et cetera .

Edit: But I'm going to name my son Tyr or Tor (Swedish for Thor). :)

Never heard Uno or Göte, but we've got Bjørn, Stein, Ragnar, Ulf, Sigurd etc. And Alexander isn't a very Christian name; got Alexander the Great, who definitely wasn't a Christian.

Here in Denmark Aske, Ask, Asger has started reappearing along with other of the old names like Thorild, Ragnar, Balder etc seems like they went away for a while and are now starting to come again
