Name Dropping

A blog I often read has had a recurring (it's happened twice) feature where they seemingly pick a name at random and think of the stereotypes associated with the name. When I think about it I'm...a namist? Like Betsy. I've never had any luck with Betsy's. Those bitches steal unicorn stickers, they tattle. They're evil and certainly not cute enough to pull off the evil.

I think the name Rick for a boy is really gross. Like they could grow up to be HUGE perverts. I don't even KNOW a Rick so I don't know where that's coming from, that's odd. This is name prejudice and I'm guilty.

Then there are just the boring names. The ones that everyone has and you don't pay them any mind. Not even worth a stereotype.

So onto my name. Why do so many of you people name your dogs Kasey/Casey? I mean, come on! I have a dog name. There was a dog named Casey that lived near my house growing up. It would get loose all the time and so the family that owned it would be outside my house shouting my name. That kind of shit is unnerving. So I guess that could be one of the stereotypes of my name. Dog like.

Here's what the internet has to say about the meaning of my name:
vigilant, alert, vigorous

Does that work? Did my parents pick a good one? My mom wanted me to have a strong name. No sissy shit.

I rather like my name. I feel like it suits me. Do you think that people ending up living up or down to their name. For example, if I were named something like Stephanie or Lindsey would I still act the same? Do I even act like a Kasey?

I would like to hear what other think of their name or my name. Are you also a namist? Which names?

I think Kasey works. If you were named Lindsey, you could have turned out to be a sissy.... but you're no sissy, KB. I'd take you to any bar fight. :)

I have no idea what my name means. I was told something about being named after Becky Thatcher in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. *shrug*

If you think about it, there would be no KCitos if your name was not Kasey. That would be a tragedy!
Its a great name!
When I was a kid I would pretend I was John. Or Goat. I grew out of Goat, and John, that is for sure, and the wife has a secret name for me. Not that secret, but still...

Whoa. This is weird. Becky the meaning of your name is: Captivating; knotted cord
Knotted cord!! Like your pendants! Isn't that crazy? I think it is. Maybe it's not. To me it is.

When my brother was younger he would introduce himself as Michael Carrington. This was after watching Grease 2. He wanted to be a cool rider. He said it sooo very sure of himself. So my mom would have to let people know that he was Will, not Michael. That confused everyone.

Now let's look up Gary's name...One who rules with the spear. Hmmm. That doesn't work. Or does it?
