Would you name your kid after a MLP character?
« on: April 29, 2020, 07:03:24 PM »
I know of a few children of collectors who have been named after MLP characters! I love the whimsical touch. They're not the Pinkie Pie / Tootie Tails variety of names, far more subtle and you'd need to be in the know to catch the reference.

Would you ever consider it?  (HUMAN children! Not furbabies!  :biggrin: )

A little reference somewhere would be cute! There are plenty of "normal" names worked into the ponies somewhere, after all.

Simply...no.

Pets, probably.

Not kids.

Well, I'm not going to have kids, so it's a moot point for me x) But hypothetically? Nah. Pony names are for ponies, not humans.

Well, maybe one of the normal names, like Susie or Serena or whatever. But no Rarities or Tink-a-Tink-a-Toos :P

Well, I'm done having kids anyway. But hypothetically speaking, only if it's an actual name like:

Megan
Danny
Molly
Tiffany
Misty
Dawn
Eve
Serena

Otherwise heck no! I'd not set my kid up as bullybait!

ponies? Nah. MLP isn't that significant in my life.

Some other geeky thing. Yes.

There's way to give subtle nod to things without taking the direct name. Like Iris -- meaning rainbow.

Not calling somebody Applejack, but maybe a name hinting at that, like Melania Is Italian Applejill, which is a lot like the English (??? Well common in the English Speaking world anyway) Melanie.

Make it subtle.
My Mascots (so far): Twisty Tail, G2 Trixiebelle, Starcatcher, Twilight Sparkle. All variants & pictures of these are appreciated. Piccie courtesy of Griffin

It does not look like kids are in the cards for me but no, I would not
I wouldn't want to push my interests on my children and Im not sure how they would feel being named after a nerdy hobby of mine

I never wanted children, I vastly prefer my cats.  :) They weren't named after MLP, quite a lot pony names sound silly or childish anyway, so I prefer my cats having proper names.  :biggrin:

"And here's my lovely daughter, Depressionware Glass and her brother, Stamp Collection."  Ha ha, no way.

Aside from the potential of the kid getting teased, I think naming a child after a parent's hobby is pretty narcissistic.

No. I often feel bad for people that had parents that gave them a name that the parents thought was cute, but is setting someone up to be teased all of their lives. I once ran in to someone who's name was "Princess."

I mean it's better than the poor kid that was named Covid.
