Yeah, except that it could be mispronounced as La hyphen A.
I'd rather see more La-shas and Shaniquas than boring crap like Ian and David...
Janus might have been a cool name, although obviously quite gloomy. Janus Bifrons
Why didn't they change this guy's name?
Or all these lot?
I can picture the schoolchildren. What rhymes with Janus...
^The Messiah is not just a boy's name? o_O
Maybe if you are stoned. (obscure allusion)
Indeed :/ I was thinking of the Greek version of the name, which is Ianos (the etruscan/roman two-faced god of war, change and barriers)
That right falls upon the judge, who is a representative arbiter of decent society.
Since expletives are used quite often around young kids, it is a wonder they even know their given name at birth by the time they enter grade school.
I remember a story of an orthodox Jewish child who was named, Shalom, one of the names of God. If a Jew can name his son one of the names of God, then a Christian should allow someone to be named after the mere title of the Son of God.
I think Messiah Yahweh McSavior would be a great name.
The parents were arguing about the child's last name, not his first name. The judge decided on her own to change his given name, because the parents' choice offended her religious convictions.
I have a big problem with a judge that decides cases based on the authority of a religious text. Last I checked, the United States aren't a theocracy.
Thanks a lot Mise.
And come correct people:
Haha! Even the next day, I think that's clever. I like it!
It's clever, but everyone's going to pronounce it laaaaaa
I'd pronounce it as La ah, presuming the dash is to indicate that it's two syllables.
I don't think naming your child is a good time for this kind of cleverness.
For some reason this exchange is reminding me of a terrible joke about the Star Trek: Voyager crew...
It's actually pronounced Ladasha, they just used an actual - mark instead of spelling it out.
Don't blame me, blame every other parent in Wales for naming their child David
Not even Dafydd? The nerve of some people!
My wife used to teach first grade in a rotten school district. She did, in fact, have a student who didn't know his name when he got to first grade. He had an identical twin, so non-family members tended to call him things like sweetie and honey, since they didn't know who was who.
Separate names with a comma.
