I didn’t realize names had races.

Why can’t you just ask for boy names?? Why does it have to be race specific???

Guys some times people want to name their children with their heritage in mind . There is a history to names . And yes some of that history comes from a certain region, or country that is predominantly made up of a certain race . Like I wanted a name for my daughter to convey she was Irish,so we went with River Ireland Merrie. If this momma wants a strong black name there is nothing wrong with that . Not every thing that is race specific is racist . I promise

Why do we all call for unity and then insist on division? This is a silly question

I wasn’t aware names were in certain categories. But I love Samuel. Charles. Jack. Dylan. I’m not a big fan of names that can have nick names but I love Samuel even if it’s Sam. I feel like a name can be strong if the person is.

Jude (it works for a boy or a girl… of any ethnic group) and it’s a beautiful lullaby, it’s unique, I will always recommend this name! I’d have named my son this if my Ex husband didn’t have a meltdown over it

LaTarian, JaDavion, messiah, Daviontae, JaQuell… Those are names I like and people tell me they sound hood. Not sure if they’d be considered strong to someone else

Dante, Reggie, Stanley, Tyrese, Quinton are a few of my favorite names from some of my favorite people! :blue_heart::blue_heart::blue_heart: Congratulations on your new upcoming addition to your family!

Onyx, Coal… Those are strong black names since it’s just a color right? And they wonder why those who aren’t African American or of color think there’s a double standard…

One name I really like is DeMarcus. Another is Monroe. My youngest son’s middle name is Monroe. We call him Roe for short sometimes.

Titan, is unusual but definitely a strong name.

This is why there is no name attached because too many of y’all come on here to start stuff. :roll_eyes:

How about James, John, Matthew, Mark. I like biblical names.

Why are people mad? Whenever I looked up names for my babies I looked up Mexican names since they are mixed :woman_shrugging:t3:
