Come on now black people this ghetto stuff has got to stop. I don’t care who your uncle is your mom shouldn’t have done that to you. African Americans y’all have to stop doing that to your kids and wonder why when they grow up the white kid get the job over them because they can’t say your name maybe that’s why

african american people don’t make ghetto names we try to make them something every one else doesn’t have like billy,mandy,lisa and all those other white peoples names..

As parents, I really do think we need to think long and hard before we name our children. If a certain name carries negative preconceptions then the name should not be given to the baby.
Are they serious?

I’ve seen a lot of name books and websites with baby names and I’ve never known any of these to have meanings! Black people, we should definitely think long and hard before naming our kids. It’s not selling out either, or trying to be something you’re not.

i agree we need to think harder about the names we give our kids. we say we want to be unique but tell me how unique are keisha, meisha, la teisha, faleisha jesus i could go on for weeks!

If you want to name your baby Shaniqua, then for god sakes, name your baby shaniqua, I think it’s pretty, and trust me, getting called lizardbreath (elizabeth) as a child probably gave me character.

uh, i met this white girl once named Tenisha…i’d never heard that before. But anywho, I don’t think I would name my child (if i do have children) a so-called “black” name, but only because the spelling and of course, the meaning may or may not be questionable. Kinda like Uniqua from the Backyardagins.
blacks and whites

my babygirl is called shanique and finding that her name means god is gracious brought tears to my eyes, i was looking a meaningful name for her before her dad suggested shanique, i fell in love with the name as soon as i heard it, for pple who are condemning it should really stop maybe they are not happy with their own names and are jealous of a beautiful name like this and all this americans talking crap about not getting a job becos of ur name, duh! are they for real?!!!!!!!
