I have already lost all hope for future generations so this doesn't surprise me at all. I think that is what is really the sad thing. Idiocy here we come.

21: I actually kinda like those names! Nice work.

25: The world is not going to hell in a handbasket. The next generation is not any stupider than the last one. The sky is not falling. Take a deep breath.

Thats not always true though. Yes the wife and I created our two together, but we both agreed that if it was a girl, she would name them, if it was a boy, I would name them. Some couples do that. Of course I never named them anything weird sounding though

My husband always threatens to name our future son (if we have one) Optimus Prime.

In comparison, "Raindropp" wouldn't be a bad alternative.

I wanted to name our son Remy, after gambit. Or Ryder. Or even Robbie. My boyfriend picked Aiden...of all the names in the world. It's not too late tho!!! There's time to change it up until the birth certificate is signed. Don't give in!

And now I picture A girl with the name Raindropp dancing in those sundrop commercials. Your child has a bright future in the soda industry ahead of him/her

193: Schoolyard nicknames for a kid called "Raindrop-Pee":

Pee Drop
Droop Drip
The Drizzler
Angel Piss
Piss Pants
Pee Pants
Terry the Incontinent

Anybody else? Step right up and take a crack at a rude name for the OP's future child!

I don't see what's so terrible with both parents choosing the name together.
My ex and I named our daughter Jaida-Lee together. I personally like it, but I'm biased.
And it means neither of us have to look at her and think 'why the fuck did I let him/her name her?

#75, it wasn't misspelled, there was just an extra letter added. There's a difference between misspelling a word and just adding an extra letter (the same letter the word ended with) to the end

  doctorhook86  |  24

293: Sure, it's a deliberate misspelling to make the name more unique. Mostly though it's just a way to ensure that the kid will someday spend a lot of his or her time on the phone with banks, governments, and utility companies trying to sort out the misspellings on his account.

PSA: Don't make your kid's life a hassle; give them an easy-to-spell name.

  doctorhook86  |  24

#265 is a good example: his name is Talon, which is kind of unique, but it's spelled exactly how you'd expect it to be spelled. "Talonn" would have been much worse name.

Incidentally, I have absolutely no idea wtf #265's profile blurb means...

This generation of kids are stupid. Kids go around spelling words incorrectly and use grammar totally wrong, then when someone corrects them because even though he/she may have had a point he/she now appears to be uneducated and stupid the that person is a grammar nazi..

"Salt 'n' Pepa" would be a better name. Then when the OP is in the delivery room, the husband can coach her by saying:

"Ah, push it - now p-push it real good"

It's okay 4, I thumbed up your comment. It's not fair that someone with almost the exact same comment got 100+ likes just because they posted a few seconds before you

People can't name their kids for shit nowadays. I pray that he'll see the light and at the very least put Raindropp- which isn't even SPELLED correctly- in the middle, where it becomes a private, embarrassing story and not your child's daily torment.

  CallMeBloo  |  31

There is a big difference between using an alternate spelling of an accepted name like Caleb, and something that is simply a word like Raindrop. It makes the namer look like they are unable to spell, and therefore not very intelligent.

That being said, alternate spellings are annoying as well. I should know, as my parents saw fit to give me an alternate spelling of a name that was popular around the time I was born. No one spells it right on the first try, and very few remember the correct spelling without several reminders. The worst, though, is when I spell my name out for people letter-for-letter and they insist that THEIR spelling is correct. What the fuck- I know how to spell my own name!

I have people messing up the spelling of my very common name as well. The difference is, I don't have an alternative way of spelling it. I also don't complain about it. I would however complain if it was "Raindropp".

  PlaySpades  |  21

I don't get why it's such a big deal. Every name originates from a different language and is a word as well. Names as simple as mine (Jessica) mean something in other languages- in Hebrew its original spelling means foresight, so everyone is named after a simple word, just in a different language. Asians name their children after words in their own language so why can't we?

My daughter is going to have the same problem, 53. Her mother named her Zylla (pronounced with a long I sound), and most people mispronounce it on the first try, and look at me like I'm an idiot when I correct them.

I fought the name; in fact, we had a different name picked out, but I didn't make it to the hospital in time, and she signed the birth certificate before I could get there.

Reminds me of this girl that desperately needed to separate herself from other sane mothers (and in the process, embarrass her child) by naming her daughter Nevaehika. Heaven spelled backwards. Plus "ika."
