White name.  I've only met 2 other black girls with my name and an actress' daughter has my name, but she's damn near white, so i don't know.

Correct! I love my name!
 
When I was a kid there was the whole 'Black Power' movement so people started naming their children African names. That was nice actually.Clap
 
But ... umm then I think they ran out of such names or whatever because then they started making up names for their children. Just pulled them out of the air and that's how it got to the point that it is today. Confused Alll these peculiar names ... that are immediately recognized as 'Black names'. DUH!Shocked
 
I think people can name their kids anything they want. Didn't that movie star name her kid 'Apple'?
Wink And even some non Black people are named - 'Black names'.
 
However, when you name someone a typical Black name in America (with alll the racial problems) they have to carry that name ... the rest of their lives and that's not so nice. Shocked  
 
Everytime he sends in his Resume or applies for a Mortgage .. you name it .. people will guess that he is Black so if they want to discriminate against him etc .. well, now they can do so without anyone knowing.
 
I hate to state the obvious .. but this can sc*** you IMO.
 
I'd rather the child be name a typical American name or an ambiguous name like Tyra or Cher or even Apple but Keisha? Nooo. Not meaning to offend but these kind of names .. kindof 'precede' a person their whole lives. Ouch

I'm trying to figure out why making up names and words is such a bad thing.....that's how language is created.
All they have to do is give the names meaning and it's all good with me.

My name is common with Asians and a few white girls. So many girls in high school had my name. I never met a black girl with my name, but I meet black girls with a different version of my name. I get called a lot by the different version of my name so often that it has become a nickname for me by my mom since she thinks it's funny that people can't get my name right even though it is so easy.

I like my middle name. It's Nigerian.
