My sister-in-law was telling me a story about the loathsome child next door
and his name is Jaden and his sister's name is Madison. Truly. I laughed out loud when I heard it. It's like some frauphobe's post come to life. They could play themselves in the Datalounge move.
OP, could you explain that (and its significance) in English?
What a coinky-dink! I've got a loathsome Jaden! His sister is Willow, though, not Madison. Where does your sister live, maybe she's mistaken on the girl's name.
Oh, and your sister... Is she an attractive woman? Does she need some company?
The name Jayden is everywhere. Get used it. It's usually followed by James. Before that it was Jameson. It's the new version of Courtney, Ashley and Whitney for way back when.
Do these people ever appreciate that one day these little monsters will be 50 yr. olds walking around with these ridiculous, pretentious names?
OP, I usually love threads like this, so spill. What was "loathsome" about them?
Madison is a nice name, although way overused.
Does Madison offer her mother a basket full of kisses?
In 2010 I did data entry work for the Census. It paid well, for a temporary survival gig.
If I had a nickel for every Jaden, Jayden, and Jaiden I typed, I could have retired.
Also extremely popular: Destinee, Brittni, and Nevaeh (heaven spelled backwards).
How about R'moniee? Pronounced as Armani.
Will Smith & the insufferable Jaiden were on Graham Norton this week. Twitter lit up with praises for their rap performance...which only goes to show how divorced I am from the hideousness that is most popular culture and primadonna children in general. " One exasperated woman did tweet "Africans are awful" which made me laugh.
I only know of two male children named Madison.
How did it get co-opted by the little girls?
I have always said, if I ever had a son I would name him Ever. I know that it is a pretentious name but I have always liked it. Ever Robert, do you think the kid would want to kill me when he got older?
My theory on strange names-use them for the child's middle name. That way you can still address the child as Ever, or Apple, or Pilot Inspektor, but once the kid gets older he can stick with either the traditional first name, or the middle name you've been using.
That seems reasonable.
My mother has a horrible first name, Leoma (she was the only girl in her family, named after her grandmother). She has always gone by her middle name, Lynne.
R9, people went nuts for the Graham Norton appearance because of this:
R11, the name"Madison" for girls comes straight from the 1987-ish movie SPLASH. When Darryl Hannah's mermaid character needed a name and saw a Madison Avenue street sign, she chose to call herself "Madison."
The name simply was not in popular usage for girls before then. Why it took off then, I will never know. It sounded ugly and clunky in the movie, and it still does.
I was named after a President of the United States by my pappy who was also President of these United States.
My sister had never seen the movie "Splash" either. She got the name "Madison" from a friend who had recommended that name for another friend's boy baby. Then the name took off.
She doesn't regret the name, but she kinda curses the movie "Splash."
The coolest name I've heard in a while is a friend who named her daughter Augusta.
Augusta is in the sixth grade now and her friends either call her "Gussie" or "Gus."
