Wow poor lil boy... his parents need to get slapped... That name is worse than T.I. giving the middle name 'Yamajesty' to his son. And I know a chick who had two girls.. one born in Savannah and one in Atlanta and their names are Savannah and Atlanta... smdh
Hey isn't there someone on MTO w that screen name? Lady that is a screen name not a given
name! I am so sick of these dumb ghetto names. That poor child when he turns 16 he can get his
name changed and needs to do so or he will find himself without a job. Mothers when you name ur
kids, remember that they will have to be employable one day and these stupid ass names will
make that harder than it has to be, damn the boy already got one strike against him! Leave the
stupid ass names as nicknames. Not to mention the first thing that came to my mind was derelict!
And to send that boy on tv with that stupid name! I swear fo God she need her butt beat! Hopefully
she is a MTO reader. If you are lady listen, you can change your child's name. It's only like $100!
Name him David! That's my son's name and it's a nice employable name :)
Yes, David Clark, now doesn't that sound better? If I were hiring for a job I would not throw a
David Clark resume in the trash before reading it! Hey I'm just keeping it real bc when a Darealyst
Clark comes across the desk guess what they are going to do with the resume 80% of the time?
Harder than it has to be. Life is already hard a mom is not supposed to make it worse on her child!
im not sure i believe this first of all the news tag says "your news now" with no station logo or number on it and also isnt that the boy who was on the news cuz some random guy mis-texted a number and sent him some naked pics if it is he lives with his granny not his mom and thats not his name cant remember what it is but i know that shid yall got up ain it
Yeah that's pretty bad and shows his mothers state of immature mind set when she named him, but I have definitely heard worse and luckily when he grows up if he hates his name enough then with a fee he can go right ahead and change it.
I cannot continue to defend my people if we continue to do ish like this...sad thing is he may be a genius but may never get the opportuunity either bc he will b disciminated against or to ashamed to stand out in the crowd....but mama sure is bold n proud I bet.
@stormzoey... Rich celebrities ALSO crossdress their kids like it's okay when it's NOT!!!
Hence: shiloh (not the babies fault her mom let's her make grown up decisions when she's clearly incapable of making the right one) SMDH SOME people/celebs can be so dang on dumb...

BTW, he's a HANDSOME lil darling(I saw his pic elsewhere). Let's just HOPE that he does WELL in spite of his name(stranger things have happened).
@True_Beauty_Bklyn87---lol!!! I copied it from a site---I posted in the past when MTO posted a GHETTO name before.
Poor little guy---DAREALYST! Well he'll be SAFE from being BULLIED or CLOWNED with ALL the laws about BULLYING!
after looking @all those (ahem) names, unfortunately I've heard the names Quashelle, Tykia, Quaniqua, Carress, Zykia *_* (Shanana voice) o muh gudniss. Time for a real drink! LOL and COL (crying out loud)
Don't forget about Le-a, pronounced LeDashA. Her Louisana mom was complaining about everyone saying her name wrong. She told the news, "The dash don't be silent." Someone even created a facebook page for the name.
@ SwtChocolatykiZZez and @ MzJSUFan; #38 and #39 are not made up ghetto names, they are ghetto spelling of 'Kishon'. I remember being shown it in a passage in the old testament years ago. It's a River in the Holy Land, and can mean winding (adjective) or to bait/lure (verb). Abarim Publications lists the following real-life name derivatives of it: Kish, Kishi, Kushaiah, and Jokshan. I wonder who the first black/ghetto Keyshawn was, though?
@kelleigh313, that's a fake story a certain class of white people like to spread. The 'real' Ledasha came *after* the urban legend. But it's as fake as women naming their sons Orangello, Lemongello and Nosmo King. Snopes did a whole entry on it, how old the 'joke' is, and what the story tellers are actually saying when they tell such stories.
@sexishavonne, I remember that news story; and you pick up good points about the discrepancies in the photo being used. I don't remember the boy's name being relayed as 'Darealyst' when the story came out, because the sites I've been to would have had a field day and I don't remember that happening. I'm a look it up now....
(I really wish MTO would give attributions to where they get their photos, instead of pretending they own copyrights.)
Yo I think people should have to take parenting classes b4 they can have babies. LOL. It is not cool to name ur child like that. I got a normal name and people don't believe me cause I'm black they think my name is gonna be Shabonqua. Black people stop doin that 2 ur kids. MY ADVICE TO HIM IS CHANGE UR NAME LEGALLY WHEN U OLD ENOUGH TO DO SO.
Please let's stop cursing our children with these comical, uneducated names, and yes I said uneducated because I know with some of the named that I hear the mother couldn't have made it past 5th grade, please stop, it's not funny anymore, forreal
Unbelievable! I had no idea that this was an old urban legend. One of my sorority sisters (an African-American) shared this story of Le-a with me a few months ago. I will be sure to tell her about this when we meet for a cruise next week. I wonder about the actual girl who really has this name now though.
Le-a...is LeDASHa phonetic pronunciation? Omg that mom is creative though! Syke...please stop. White or black, stupid names create a crazy destiny usually. But hey, Michael & Ted have some crazy unemployed whatever stories. Our president is named Barack! Idk! They are going to HAVE to be superstars or entrepreneurs w names that unusual. Period point blank!
come on ppl...that name ain't as bad as some of the names on that list above! lol...I like the name persoanlly...I don't think he will be bullied for it but I do hope he can live up to a name like that. And don't forget who does the hiring at these jobs. White ppl do, and trust me, they won't get that name..lol
