It's All In The Name
As I perused the internet the other night, searching for the perfect pair of high heels once again, (They are out there, I know they are) I came across an article warning that the death of the name, Gary is imminent.
This is quite sad, when there are hundreds of twattish names out there, why is it Gary that is coming to an end? I have a list of names that should probably die out first and Gary isn't at the top of it.
Although, personally I'm a little scared. My name is Kellie and I don't think I ever hear of children being called Kellie/Kelly any more. (Although as a child, I would have happily swapped my name with anyone, I hated it so much) When I am in the school playground I never hear mothers or fathers calling out to their darling little daughter Kellie,
"Kellie, stop punching your school friend"
"Kellie, please don't do that in public"
"Kellie, get that out of your nose"
FLASHBACKS TO CHILDHOOD
Yes, this is me. Yes, we had cameras when I was a child.
But what if MY name dies out and I become the person with the unusual name? I introduce myself to people and they say to me, "Your parents named you WHAT?" before giving me a part sympathetic, part disgusted glance and are unable to maintain eye contact for more than 3 seconds. Celebrities in the year 2020 call their child Kellie JUST to get column inches and Katie Hopkins goes on record to say how we need to get back to old-fashioned names like Kellie. (changes name to Moonbeam)
I'm not saying everyone should have my name, It's MY name, I like it. But when did the unusual names become the usual names and the bod standard names like Kellie and Gary become old-fashioned?
Is it the sign of the times? Will other names die out?
What is your name? Do you think you have an unusual name for 2015, like Bob or something.
Let me know
