Willow

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on July 20, 2009

Willow was the name of the “little person” on the movie of the same name.

See?  I was nice and politically correct there.  Do you think an 11 year old will afford her the same courtesy, or do you think he will call her midget, dwarf and all kinds of other shit like that?

Yeah…I think so too…

yeah because im sure all kids nowadays watch a movie older than they are just so they can make fun of this pretty popular and pretty common name.

They don’t watch King Kong either, but I bet if you ask any school aged kid what King Kong is he or she will know.

I have lived in more than one country and been to almost every state. I have never met a person named Willow. Ever. I’m sure they exist (because of brilliant people like you) — but it’s not a “pretty common” or “pretty popular” name. You would know this if you didn’t constantly and exclusively hang out with mothers of kids named Carbon, Kaimen and Makinley.

nah i dont hang out with mothers of kids named that. actually the kids of people i hang around have pretty normal names like Brooke, Kenny, Michael, Sarah, and my own daughter is named Jenna. i bet though they arent normal to you, since apparently everyone should be named joe, jacob, susan, and mary, or other boring and overused names.

No, actually those are pretty normal. Brooke is stupid, but normal. I am shocked that you were able to remove your head from your ass long enough to name your daughter something respectable. Shit…maybe there’s hope for you yet. If we can just work on those capital letters, you may be a keeper before this is all said and done.

Of course you do, with your witty sense of humor and all.

OK so, I want to say, I don’t agree with all that stuff my husband said. I was really only here because it was fun, I wasn’t too serious about it, I don’t care at all that you made fun of my name. Yes I did get upset that you insulted my grandmother, and her name that has been passed down in my family, even if you think its awful, we dont, but whatever, that doesn’t even bother me that much now. So I apologize for what my husband said, I think he went way overboard, and got to the point of , well I don’t know what. I was just here having fun, and he kind of ruined that. So yeah. I do think you are way too harsh on people who have a different taste then you do, which does make you out to be a real jerk, and an ass. So that is still what I think about you, but hey, we can’t like everyone, now can we? Anyway, my whole point I was trying to make in my comments was, that I don’t think everyone should all be the same, with the same boring names, what good is that? I don’t want my kids to be one of 3 or 4 kids with the same name in their class, so we choose more uncommon names for them. If that’s what you want for your kids, then that’s ok, its your decision, not mine, or anyone elses. I do agree with you on quite a few names on here, like AlyxZandyr, Kaiman, Carbon, Maverick, and Qristyl (forgot how that one was spelled) and a few others. You just have a drastic way of saying you don’t like them, and I don’t is all. There, I used capitalization. I hope that was to your liking. I know with me only having a high school diploma, that your English is probably better than mine, but who cares, really? It does make me wonder though, did you major in English or something to make you so annoyed by the wrong use of it? Seriously, I really am wondering that. Just so you know, I didn’t tell anyone to come on here and bash you, I do have friends that I talk to online, and I happened to be talking to my friend Michelle, who lives in Belgium, by the way, so her English is obviously not going to be as good as An American, or an Englishman. I just said I was having fun on here arguing with a guy that hates baby names, and how I made it to the top of your list (which I thought was pretty cool, actually. Woohoo for me lol) They felt the need to comment, and were offended by you, just like I was at first. So yeah, what I’m saying here is, my husband can be a real ass too, so I cant really do anything about that, and my friends were just taking up for me. I’m really not a mean or bad person.

Whew — that was a mouthful, you’re right about that, Golden!

Okay…here goes:

YAY for caps!!! Did you sprain any fingers? For the record, my Bachelor’s Degree is in criminal justice, not English. I just think people are butchering the language, just like they’re butchering names.

You don’t have to apologize for your husband. His parents should apologize for him, but it’s not your fault his mother did meth while she as pregnant. He did not hurt my feelings. It soothes me to know that he is jealous of my degrees and cars, so much so that he cannot even bring himself to believe that I have them.

I don’t care if people have different taste than I do — I have many friends who have named their kids shit that I think sucks, but it’s not on the board because it’s not damaging to the kid. It’s not about taste, it’s about common sense and whether or not your kid will have trouble with a name like that his or her entire life. For example, the name Katherine sucks, but it’s not damaging.

I am glad that you sent your friends — the more the merrier. In fact, tell more people — that’s what I’m here for. But I don’t hate “baby names.” I actually think the world would be a very difficult place if babies did not have names, and were just pointed to when addressed. I just hate stupid baby names.

There are over 100 names on here, and you have only commented on a handful of them. You have at LEAST 70 more to go, Golden. Let’s see if you can weigh in on each and every one.

Oh – -and I hate to burst your bubble, Golden, but every time I post a new name it’s at the top. So I didn’t technically move you up to the top of the list.

That being said, Golden was awful enough to make the list, so you should still hold your head high!

golden July 27, 2009 at 12:02 pm

oh well, here i was trying to be nice, but it seems you really are an asshole. so whatever. enjoy your life making fun of other people. and yeah, it is about taste. your choice in names, is the taste of names you have. but whatever fuckwad. im done here seeing as how you cant even post one nice comment when i tried to be nice to you. im beginning to think my husband was right afterall.

What — am I supposed to lie and tell you that Golden is all of a sudden a beautiful name, just because can’t stand by your own nasty comments?

For those of you that aren’t in the soup line with Josephine, I believe the word that she was grasping for, that she missed twice, was “again.” She took as much time as the public library would let her to spell correctly, but she just couldn’t nail it. No hard feelings, Josephine.

Do you honestly think I give 2 fucks if you think I am lying? What — if I post a picture of my car, wife and children, are you going to then all of a sudden become literate? Before you waste an hour looking up the word “literate” on the library’s computer — I will give you the answer. It’s no.

Lemonjello Redenbacher July 28, 2009 at 6:10 pm

Oops — my bad. She misspelled “again” 3 times. Still no hard feelings, though…

I can’t say I’ve heard of this movie till now.
I automatically think of the redhead from Buffy when I hear this name.

Just because a name is common doesn’t make it sensible. For the record, Willow is a dumb name that she will have to carry until her 18th birthday. It’s one thing to get teased every day in school, but quite another if your first name prevents you from getting a job because recruiters are too busy laughing at your application. Parents need to remember that no one will run out to hire Abcde or Willow or Mahckennzhyeee. BTW, this site rocks!

I don’t know, Willow is common enough now that it doesn’t seem all that “weird” or invented. Although I’m sure plenty of people will always associate this name with BtVS.

hmm you said you only put stupid names that are damaging to kids but how is people naming their children irish names just because they aren’t irish damaging?

Reply

Lemonjello Redenbacher January 5, 2012 at 6:47 am

Hmmmm…maybe because they aren’t in Ireland?

Nikki January 5, 2012 at 2:43 pm

so your opinion is that its stupid to name pick a name for a child that is not of american origin just because you dont live in that country? thats fine but i think that contradicts what you’ve said above “I don’t care if people have different taste than I do — I have many friends who have named their kids shit that I think sucks, but it’s not on the board because it’s not damaging to the kid. It’s not about taste, it’s about common sense and whether or not your kid will have trouble with a name like that his or her entire life. For example, the name Katherine sucks, but it’s not damaging.” if this is true why is Katherine not damaging? Katherine is of Greek origin..and first recorded in England in 1196, having been brought back from the Crusades. So how is that Katherine wont be teased, but a boy named Sean since his name is of irish origin and we dont live in ireland goin to hav trouble with a name like that their entire life?

Do I seriously have to explain to you why Katherine won’t be teased in Ohio, but some shit like Willow or Declan will? Actually – no I don’t. I refuse. Figure it out for yourself.

What name? January 7, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Lemonjello, you don’t have to be so nasty. Although some of the people here piss you off, arguing behind a computer screen won’t fix anything, that’s what middle schoolers do.

I actually know 3 girls named Willow and they have never mentioned being made fun of for it. I don’t associate the name with a dwarf (warwick davis was pretty hot for a ‘little person’ btw), I associate it with the Willow Tree, which is what most other people do and which I am sure the girls are named after. I don’t think it’s a bad name at all, it’s kind of pretty.

I also agree that most kids nowadays have no idea about the 1988 movie “Willow” and have never heard of it. Unless, of course, they are in the george lucas cult.

I’m enjoying this website and sorry I’m late to the Stupid Kid Names Party! With the name “Willow”, I would also suggest other tree names: Juniper and Cedar. I also lived in Hawaii and we had a lot of girls named “Coral” and boys named “Reef”. I’ll have to go through my yearbook to find other stupid names you’d love to hate.

And to the other people leaving comments: I also don’t have an English degree but you really need to practice writing and spelling correctly. If you don’t, it just proves what kind of a super moron you are. Practice makes perfect and also makes you look less like a dumb ass!
