Idumea

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on August 4, 2009

Wow.  This name is bad enough on its face, but the background of when I discovered it is even worse.  I saw it on a baby name forum.  The lady actually said that she wanted to name her daughter this, but she wasn’t sure how to pronounce it!  If you — the person who is doing the naming — can’t even pronounce it, how in the FUCK do you think anyone else will be able to?  Christ…

I am not sure how it’s pronounced either, but I do know how the kids at school would say it, and that’s, “I-dummy-a.”  Not the most flattering thing to be called for the first 18 years of your life.

I can’t help but read this as “a dumb idea”.

Idumea is a variant of the Hebrew name Edom. Still kind of dumb for a Bible name, I think.
