Achilles

Do you really want to name your child after the one person in history whose name is synonymous with weakness?

I totally agree people are out of control, however, this is a name in Southern Europe. Achille is an Italian name. He was a Greek HERO of the Iliad. Not a weak man BTW. Although, for myself, I do like weird ethnic names.

Wait ’til I tell you the other family names( these have been around since the Roman empire) Ippolito(Hippolytus) Consiglia, Plautilla, Piacentina, and Cesedio. I think Newt, Mitt, and Mason are bull shit names. So who gets to decide what’s “AMerican” enough.

The majority of Amercians.

And I agree – Newt, Mitt & Mason do suck. I’d say Mason is the least shitty of these – and it’s a tie of knee-deep shittiness between the other two.

Piacentina reminds me of a Placenta.

Wouldn’t want that kid on my kickball team. The team is only as strong as the weakest link; Achilles heal… Whatever.

It’s strange that you guys are making fun of Achilles, while so many of the true US names are beyond comprehension worldwide. Of course, as a true American you’ll say “who gives a f*ck about the rest of the world” while in the same time you come up with all these weird names for your kids so they can be bullied later. I’ve had a friend (yes, had) who cut me off because I questioned her decision of calling her baby boy Chance. That was 16 years ago. The boy ain’t doing good in school.

Wait – so YOU criticized someone else’s kid’s name – but I’M the “American asshole” for doing the same? Seems like you’re more of an American than you give yourself credit for.

Chance isn’t really that unusual here in America. Mason isn’t a shitty name! It’s getting a little too popular for me though.
