It sounds like homophobes bitching about a "gay" name

Gaylord is a noble name, OP.

If he looks like a Gaylord, he’s a Gaylord.

Nobody has used that name since Frederick Gaylord Crane a generation ago

Gailard Sartain is a great character actor. I wouldn't name my child any variant of "Gaylord" but I'm also not going to giggle like a little girl every time I hear the name.

Assigning your offspring a gender or a name is erasing their non binary trans self. Asshole.

It's better than something stupid kid Todd or Chad or Guy.

I thought we're supposed to be using LGBTQI+lord now.

This sounds almost like a EST, the Daily Mail edition. As far as Gaylord goes, I only think it'ssomewhat leading with the chin by proxy, and your kid will be the bearer of whatever abusive bullying is the result. IMO.

I work with a younger guy named Jayden, his wife is named Ashleigh. Their kid's name? Walter. Yes. Walter. WTF?

I have a cousin named Gay Marie (we used her first and middle). No relation to the Maries of Brewster, NY). Haven’t had any contact with her in fifty years, so I don’t know what name she uses these days.

R11 - huh, Walter doesn't have any bad connotations for me - I've known a couple (usually going by Walt). Is it considered old-fashioned now?

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
