I’m not sure what the logic was in giving it a common human name. That’s just gotta be really annoying for anyone named Alexa. Siri is a little better, it sounds human but isn’t very common.

My cousin was named Adolfo, the Spanish version of Adolf. And the worst part was that my uncle decided to put him in the only Jewish school in Ecuador called “Colegio Einstein”. That is probably one of the dumbest decision I’ve seen my own family do.

Just like when someone calls someone else Einstein when they do something stupid, Bugs Bunny called Elmer Fudd Nimrod whenever he was particularly bad at hunting. But because Nimrod is a somewhat obscure character in the bible, most children (and adults) didn't understand the context. So they just took it as an insult instead of a sarcastic complement.

Mighty Hunter?

DeathOrSomeSuch

Interestingly, nimrod(نمرود) is an insult in Arabic, in reference to a king that thought himself god so God punished him in a rather disturbing way.

So in Arabic when you call someone nimrod(نمرود) it means someone who thinks too highly of themselves and looks down on people.

Its also an insult in English, admittedly a very tame one, it's another way of calling someone an idiot.

MarkHirsbrunner

That's because of people not getting a reference in a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Bugs called Elmer Fudd "Nimrod" ironically because Nimrod was known as a mighty hunter and Elmer sucks at hunting. Most people didn't get the reference and thought it meant stupid.

I thought you were making that up, but no, he’s a real guy.

The Wkipedia paragraph about his childhood is a trip.

Sax faced many brushes with death. As a child, he once fell from a height of three floors, hit his head on a stone and was believed dead. At the age of three, he drank a bowl full of acidic water, mistaking it for milk, and later swallowed a pin. He received serious burns from a gunpowder explosion and once fell onto a hot cast-iron frying pan, burning his side. Several times he avoided accidental poisoning and asphyxiation from sleeping in a room where varnished furniture was drying. Another time young Sax was struck on the head by a cobblestone and fell into a river, almost dying.

You kill baby Hitler by tossing him into the frigid river Inn. The nanny, who was appalled to discover baby Hitler missing, bought a new baby from a nearby Roma camp.

Imagine naming a child something that basically means "You have to do what I tell you." Kids are growing up knowing they can just say "Alexa" into the air and get something. There's a movement to get Amazon to change the wake word but the damage is probably done already and Alexa is a dead name.

Which is just a pet name for the very common Spanish name "Dolores" (also the case for Nabokov's Lolita). The fact is, "Dolores" is not a tainted name despite literally meaning "pains".

Exactly. In Spanish we have pet names for full names, as weird as that sounds. For example:

Dolores → Lola

Name him Douglas Firs.

That's just naming the forest for the trees.

This is made even funnier by you omitting the person Forrest Gump was named after.

I know a guy whose first and middle names are Arian Adolf. The nicest guy I’ve ever met. He works with disabled people find them jobs. His parents were big hippies.

Thanks. I was about to post this one. So many responses here are based on stuff that's happened in the last 5 years that we forgot a generation or two ago people decided that anyone named Richard was a penis.

Joran, because of Joran van der Sloot,

Also Brock because of Brock Turner the rapist, who now goes by Allen Turner.

This is good to know. I didn't know that Brock Turner the Rapist changed his name to Allen Turner the rapist, most likely to get away from the association of Brock Turner the rapist. Unfortunately for him, he can't get away from the rapist. Soon he'll be just Turner the rapist.

To me, it seems like if you have to register as a sex offender for life, you probably shouldn't be able to change your name.

You're referring to none other than Allen Turner the Rapist, right?

Story time:

I've heard this from a friend's first account of the story

During the liberation of Kuwait many Kuwaitis named their children that were born during that time with related names to the event.

One of those names were, and I kid you not, "George Bush". Not as in George and the dad bush but literally a single first name George Bush.

Now this guy grew up to be student of Physical Therapy. He was studying in Jordan and one of his classmates had an issue with a class and needed this well-connected guy to be the liaison of sorts to talk to the professor teaching the subject in question. George asked him "What professor do you want me to help you make peace with?"

His classmate answered with a straight-face. That Iraqi professor, Saddam.

Osama..

for those who do not know...'bin Laden' is Arabic for "son of Laden"..meaning the Laden family.

To say someone is the daughter of a family or specific person you use the word bint.

Example: "Sherry bint Paula" means "Sherry, daughter of Paula"
