I think it's dope when people name their kids after a celebrity that had a huge impact on their lives. I know a little boy named LeBron. It's a wild name but it's funny. Someone posted in another thread the amount of kids this year named Kobe, Gianna and Bryant are through the roof.

Anyone here done it? I've been looking at baby names recently.

Have a younger cousin whose middle name is Barack.

A good name is a good name regardless of the inspiration. Can’t think of a prominent figure that would inspire the name of my child though.

I think it depends on the name. Naming your kid LeBron or Makaveli is kinda wild. Naming your kid Nasir or Kobe after legendary celebrities is dope to me.

Robinson Cano’s dad naming him after Jackie Robinson is cool as ****.

Saquon Barkley’s dad being minutes away from naming him Tupac Makaveli is ****in crazy. Now that he’s a superstar RB, I wish it happened.

I'm named after an author/poet. Growing up, people mispronounced it. Now it's a common name, even if people insist on spelling it incorrectly.

Metron

Meetri

I love creating names. I want an egyptian/west African name for my kids.

I know some kids with crazyyyy names. I know a dude named “Tuwah”

My name is derived from Jor-EL from Superman. But it’s spelled “Jarelle”

At the end of day, a name is a name. Yes, there are public figures who the name becomes synonymous with, but again, it’s a name.

I’ve met an Adolf and an Elvis before. Both Black.

My twins middle names are Luke and Leia.

And my baby's name is Braiden because the wife wouldn't let me name him Raiden:lol:
I met a kid named "Anakin" last year at a screening. He was like 12 & I just started asking him all these questions, couldn't help it :lol:

The name is Adolf isn’t banned. If you try to name your child Adolf Hitler, yeah you’ll have child services called on you quick.

I'm technically named after an athlete.

My mom just liked the name so she went with it.

My friend tried to name his son Broly from DBZ. :lol:

His girl met him in the middle and let him rock with Leonidas and Zeus. :pimp:

Long story short if you let dudes name kids ESPECIALLY boys we are going to wild out. :rofl:
