Hmm. I think some people cross the lines though. I've heard some ridiculous names. I knew a chick named Queenmika in highschool and she wanted to name her child Kingmonte. I begged her not to.

it's all fun and games until you live in predominately catholic city. everyone has the name "marie" or "mary".

I hate my first name. It's plain and every damn girl has it. I rather have a ghetto fablous name than my plain jane name.

my name looks a little ghetto i think.. but it doesnt sound ghetto. its more on the unique side.. 

i loves it. id hate to have a normal name that millions of other ppl have. 
but if i had to choose between a normal name and boomeequa.. id probably go with a normal name.

You seem to be one of those people who live by the "us" and "them" policy...  homegirl in the hood couldn't possibly be naming her child whatever the heck she want to name them because she doesn't give a damn about what a white person wants. Her dismissal of the white people's standards is merely accidental. Its simply because she is poor and ignorant and doesn't know any better. Obviously if she were a good black her name choice would make more sense and actually count toward rebellion against the man...

No, no, and no again to all your ridiculous assertions.  Good night.

In practice it is all treated the same. For instance, my name is the word "soul" in a different language. It is a religious name. there are a couple of other people in the US with my name and they are white (i found out through googleLOL). But guess who is accused of having a ghetto name? they see me with a name that does not have english origins and make wild assumptions about it being ghetto & made up, I don't separate my name from those who names ARE in fact made up because we share the same struggle. 
 
Is your name Bou-ghe'tica'laquisha?  Well then I don't lump your name into that category.  If whites do, well, I wouldn't be surprised.  Like you said, your name actually has a meaning in a language.  Some thought was put into it.  Not every black person can say the same.  Same way a lot of people think Condoleeza Rice's name is ghetto, but she was named after a famous Italian musical composition. 

Let's not compare Aisha and Shante to Desire'qua'boom'laqua.  Come on yall!

I hate that too, it's verrrrry rare that it sounds ok. There was a David'eisha in my 4th grade class.

I went to highschool with a Garysha and Curtisha.

And wasn't none of these damn deadbeats even in their daughters lives
 
yep that's usually how it goes
