    some names are stupid. loads of everton fans called their kids "wayne" after rooney, then he went to man u. so yeah, i guess the parents are stupid, but then again, so are a lot of scousers (the blue side of merseyside obv!)

    I think people are being slightly stereotypical here, because someone hasa name that is different they must be thick?

    Yeah it's sad. I don't agree.

    But i agree that I can't help but think people with certain names sound thick. I go to a selective school and I don't know a single person called "Richard", "Hayley" (or Haley) or "Danielle". There's a huge number of Simons and Chrises though.

    I don't want to sound prejudiced because I always avoid being prejudiced as much as possible... but it's certainly interesting.

    On TSR, I always thought this. Like, if someone has things that aren't letters in their name, they tend to be morons, and if they even have characters that aren't on the keyboard (copyright symbols, etc), it's a certainty. But what of real people?

    Why do I ask? I got one of those chain emails today, which as always ended with a command to put your name if you agree with it ("murder is bad", "drink-driving isn't good", etc). The people who sign these aren't usually the brightest either. Looking at the sorts who did:


    And so on for about another 500.

    Kym? Erika? Deanne? I have to say that personally, I have never met anyone intelligent with "Traci" as a name. So are these people idiots, or just American?

    Not that anyone should ever be judged by names, or anything.
    Surely its a better indication of the stupidity of the parents. I mean look at the names of the Beckham's children :rolleyes:

    But if there parents are stupid, and call their children unique or odd names, then the children wont have the best start to become the most intelligent if they don't have an intellectual upbringing.

    Chantelle. The chavviest name ever(no offence to anyone on here who has it), but everyone I've seen with that name is caked with make up, has those horrendous big earrings, and wears either Burberry or Berghaus.

    The names in that list have to be fake. I think they were created in a name generator, they're just too perfect a mix of obscure and common names.
