    Asking someone's name is one of the VERY first things I do when meeting them. I always wondered if I never asked first how long it would take them to ask me. icon_razz.gif I tend to be very good with remembering names as well. It may be easier to remember if they made an impression on me or if I like them-physically and mentally

    So when do you ask it? Do you forget to ask and then hit yourself for not asking? And are you good at remembering names?

    And, what's your name? icon_razz.gif

    I try to remember people's names, usually by associating an outstanding feature.

    Mi nombre es Timothy.

    I like to greet someone by saying, "Hi, I'm Rusty." That gives them the opportunity to tell me their name. I feel like it's better to let them tell me without my having to ask them. If you have to ask them their name it's sort of like you're (inappropriately) reminding them of their manners.

    angrygarbagestateresident saidhi. my name is... what. my name is who. my name is paz daddy.


    This is an ironic thread. At least for me.

    We should go back to a naming convention that recognized our tribe and family, and accomplishments, like Ancient Rome. I would have very much liked to be given an added name, or in the case of the Romans, an agnomen (or multiple agnomens), that is only given out of great recognition by other great men. I would have liked for example if my name could add the word Pius (as I abandoned atheism and embraced the gods and I make sure to make a pagan out of those I meet) or Maximus to indicate greatness. And to be recognized for all that I am and want to become, my full name would at least be ten words long.

    Are you serious about Blanket???
    I don't understand Hollywood's aversion to normal names, it doesn't make the child any less special.
    Choosing a normal english dictionary word as a name is worse than a common name tbh.

    The next generation of hollywood are all going to be named after directions or items lol.

    I am of the opinion that those of fine genetic stock in this country, what's left of them anyway (I still see such fine examples in their tasteful one piece swimsuits at the beach), should rename themselves to indicate their pedigree, if it goes back to weird Norman or Saxon naming conventions or freakish sounding names, so be it! Take a page from trashy Hollywood celebrities that don't mind the open attention, and stand out once and for all.

    Actually names become more normalized with the Norman invasion of England... But why can't certain white people embrace nick names or names that predate their ancestors conversion to Christianity? And who on earth embraces anything related to an Eastern European ancestry, when there's so much more to be proud about in their ancestry? Go far enough in exploring that Germanic ancestry and one can even trace an ancestry to Central Asia (that birth place of that very important component of European civilization), and one can realize that one is an Aryan! Far better than identifying with anything else really...

    Are you on medication for your disordered thoughts? Or should you be? This is a serious question. #NotTrolling


    But what's not true or false about what I stated? Class and fine genetics is often indicated by what one wears to the beach. The thing is, such people are not noticed for their manners, or for that matter their ancestors contributions to American history. They lack that chauvinism so widespread among other white ethnics and ethnics. Of course for such people to be ethnically chauvinistic would recall a time in which such people were speaking of racial hygiene to things like bathing machines to the beach. The depiction of such people in the Great Gatsby is almost entirely false. I was merely suggesting that such people be more open about who they are, and maybe not to the extent of renaming themselves with bizarre names.
