    There was a girl who went to school with me who was called Gladys. Funnily enough, though, all it did was make me think of Gladys as a perfectly normal name to have... I don't associate it with the elderly at all, even though most Gladys's would be quite old by now.

    For names?

    I really like Charlotte, or Felicity for girls, as well as Amber (although I already named a pet that, so maybe no-go), Isobel, Audrey and Heather. (And some more I can't be bothered thinking of right now. )


    And for boys, hmm, William, Ethan, Rhys, Josh, Logan, etc.

    You could name him -eating -loving er for that matter. Nevermind the fact that he will have trouble filling out those bubbles on his SAT.
    I think Stacey is a perfectly fine name, seanan.

    Is it truth, or an assumption that a boy named Stacey would be picked upon?

    Where gender-neutral names are concerned, it all depends on the person carrying them, doesn't it. We have a top notch politician (and former world champion school debater) who was named Vivian. No one ever laughed at him for being a sissy.

    Or is it something in american society then, that picks on kids just based on things like their names instead of their characters? Besides, if the child was named for a reason, isn't it much more meaningful?

    btw, I hardly think the last bolded lines are a fair comparison. No one in their right minds would name their kids something offensive. There is a big difference between a gender-neutral and a cuss word for a name. It is so out of context it can be seen as inflammatory.

    if it's from the character building aspect: then really, i think a lot of kids nowadays could do with more character building and hardship, than always having it laid out for them and being protected. If you always have it easy, the only thing you'd be is without a spine.
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    my husbands parents were both born in Italy and the first 2 of their kids have blue eyes, the oldest has light brown hair and the other 2 dark brown hair.
