Subject: Do you have a black name or a white name?
Date Posted: Nov 14 2012 at 7:33pm
I looked up my name on fb and only black girls have it. It's not a common name at all though. I've never met anyone with it (same spelling) but it's not a made up name though. I saw a movie with an Asian girl with my name once, but that's about it.

You?

ETA: My bad or Arabic or African or Spanish or whatever the case may be...


ETA: I mean your first name.

You asking about stereotypical black names I guess.

I mean historically it is a white name. It did not originate in Africa but somewhere it Italy or something like that. And it's not a black American name because it's not made up. It's a white name by root. Ashley is technically a white name too, with all the ghetto girls back in the day named Ashley. That's the original ghetto name but it's still a white name.

My first name is the short version of an African name. Most people mispronounce it unless they're familiar with the person I'm named after.

I used to wanna be a Keisha, Latoya, or Shaneka in elementary school cuz that's what I was surrounded by. I know better now. I love my name.

What exactly counts as a slave name? Washington? Freeman? Many Black people freed from slavery that had no last name simply picked a last name they liked or respected.

OT: This thread has soooooo much potential.

That would be a slave name. I was/am talking about first names though.

A slave ass first name would be Cassie, Bonnie, etc. A simple ass name that's really a nickname that don't even sound right for a black woman.

ETA: not Freeman

You?

ETA: My bad or Arabic or African or Spanish or whatever the case may be...


ETA: I mean your first name.

Whenever people say my name "Martine" they go "Oh, tu parle Francis?" And then they start speaking to me in French.

I speak French but its kind of annoying. lol
