Today, my husband and I were talking about names for our expectant child. I told him since I named our daughter he could name our son. He's decided on a name from 'God of War'. My son is going to be named after a make-believe cartoon character - Kratos. FML

i dont get the "i name one kid, you name the other" mentality. why dont you just work together to find a name you both like?

"Make-believe cartoon character"?! Whoa whoa whoa, you've gone too far, there. Besides, it's a totally cool name, you must admit.

Show it anyway

um... it's Cronus and he's a evil whore

Your son will thank you later.

are you fucking stupid? kratos isn't a make believe video game character, he's been around for waaaaaay longer than that game!

kratos is like Greek mythology or something. it's sad u think that it first came from a video game

ligit its a greek god. hence "God of War". lol

um no it's kratos

it's Kratos cronos is from like the incredables

560 - STFU and know what you are talking about before you open your trap. Kratos is the main character in the God of War series for PS3.

#560 its KRONOS and hes the titan of time not Kratos

Kratos is the main character from God Of War, who exacts revenge on the god of war, furthermore making himself the god of war. But yes, Kronos is a mythical Titan.

Oh, never mind, I thought you meant the character in the game. Although I thought there was a Cronus somewhere in Greek mythology.

I think Cronus is an alternative spelling.

I'm pretty sure 560 was referring to the actual deity of Greek mythology that the character of the PS3 game is based on

The K and C are switched sometimes I believe, to settle this Kronos/Cronus thing. I think cyclops can also be switched with kyklops. Weird, just something I read when doing school research on cyclopes

you're all wrong. kronos=greek cronus=roman. same dude, different names. just like zeus=greek and jupiter=roman. romans took the greeks ideas and gods and renamed them and changed them slightly.

i dont get the "i name one kid, you name the other" mentality. why dont you just work together to find a name you both like?

agreeed; & just bc its "he turn to pick" it doesn't mean you need to name your kid some stupid name like that or just a name you dont like, grow a pear & speak upp!

I believe the term is "grow a pair". Fruit probably wouldn't help in this situation.

650 that was funny, but back to #2. I think compromise is the best route for names. My dad wanted to name my little brother diesel and my mom wanted Asher. So they decide Asher as the first and diesel as the middle, but we still call him diesel lol.

that name is badass.

agree with ya. kratia in Greek means rule or ruler so it's a pretty BA name if you ask me

It's most definitely a BA name, but I would have gone with Ezio since I'm an AC fan :3

Better than "Soap" :P

I prefer the Greek Gods names over the Roman ones.

651 agreed!

632 don't forget about "Roach."

My daughter's name is Zelda. Just putting that out there.

@681, at least it's not link

How would that be bad?

not as bad as the man who named his kid ESPN.

No way! And Kratos was real, he is portrayed in God of War. Cause he's real.

what about shithead?

kratos is actually a greek god who symbolizes strength. You can make it cratos to look a little better.

My last girlfriend's name was Athena, she loves her name.

I prefer Greek over Roman. It should be Ares if he wants the God of war.

Kratos and Ares are not the same Ares' Roman aspect is Mars Kratos in traditional Greek myth is the god of strength and power, son of the Titans Pallas and Styx He and his brothers Nike (victory), Bia (force) and Zelus (zeal) were enforcers for Zeus

Kratos is an awesome name. Why would you ever want that changed? I bet you would have picked a common and boring name like Joeseph. I wish i had an awesome name like Kratos

Congratulations, you married the coolest guy ever.

if you really dont like the name, id tell him if i were you :P

trust me guys don't listen once they have their heart set on the name :/

I have a weird name and my whole life I've wished I had a generic one. Fuck your kid's life.

well what's ur name?

The user name is MaramaBreaksFace, so I'm going to guess Marama.

615, is your name Thog?
