    "The ghetto names probably began when people started trying to be too different from whites. They started naming their children after things with meaning, then it dissolved to just random ass hyphenated or apostrophied names. Crazy ghetto names also come from parents putting their names together ("Tyroneisha", "Jeriesha").


    Its a long history when it comes to how names got how they are.

    and there you go, like I said in my post above, our Spirit tells us to continue to keep YAH'S name in our mouth, we his people even though we are lost, our spirit gives us hints to who we are and everytime we call out our sisters name we praising YAH, yall niggas about to be awaken with truth....

    they are not crazy ghetto names, they are beautiful names, blessed names with the father name in them...you cal those names ugly and ghetto and you aint even knowing you speaking ill towards the father, yeah that's how the enemy works, the white man got yall niggas head so flipped and blasted and stained and trained that when the father puts the spirit on the mother that's carrying his nations with Hebrew names, niggas call it ugly......"

    Is Mercedes now off limits? The reason why I ask is because Mercedes is an actual name that's Spanish in origin. This the etymology:

    "[i[Means "mercies" (that is, the plural of mercy), from the Spanish title of the Virgin Mary, María de las Mercedes, meaning "Mary of Mercies". It is ultimately from the Latin word merces meaning "wages, reward", which in Vulgar Latin acquired the meaning "favour, pity".[/i] http://www.behindthename.com/name/mercedes

    Mercedes \m(e)-rce-des, mer-cedes\ as a girl's name is pronounced mer-SAY-dees. It is of Spanish origin, and the meaning of Mercedes is "mercies". Used in reference to the Virgin Mary, Santa Maria de las Mercedes as "Our Lady of Mercies". http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Mercedes[/i]

    Also the car was named after Mercedes Jellinek, not vice versa:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2001/10/19/automobiles/her-name-still-rings-a-bell.html

    THE preadolescent girl in the faded photographs has long curls, a noble profile and an expression of intelligence and good humor. But who could have known then, a century ago, that her name would live on long after she was largely forgotten, on some of the best-known automobiles in the world?

    She was Mercedes Jellinek, daughter of a wealthy Austrian businessman with a passion for the newly invented motorcars at the turn of the 20th century. In 1901, when she was just 11 years old, her demanding father insisted that her name be given to the cars he intended to buy. The rest is automotive history.


    IMHO, once you learn the history of name Mercedes and it's link to the storied automobile company it removes the stigma of ratchness from the name and makes it cool and unique. Unfortunately, the same analogy doesn't apply to Destiny, Princess, Heaven or Diamond those still sound like stripper/booty movie girl stage names.
