Well ... first I thought "Why the heck would she name a kid Chaos?"
But being the person I am, I also thought about how in Greek mythology Chaos is the void that the first gods appeared out of.
So now that I think about it, it doesn't seem any weirder than Nevaeh or Angel or any biblical or "religious" name. It just happens to be from a non-Christian religion. The idea is the same. And I do appreciate that it's spelled correctly.[/b]
And I like Greek mythology, too. And it has nothing to do with Christianity or anything.
Merriam Webster sez:
1 obsolete : chasm, abyss
2 a) often capitalized : a state of things in which chance is supreme; especially : the confused unorganized state of primordial matter before the creation of distinct forms — compare cosmos b: the inherent unpredictability in the behavior of a complex natural system (as the atmosphere, boiling water, or the beating heart)3 a: a state of utter confusion <the blackout caused chaos throughout the city> B) a confused mass or mixture <a chaos of television antennas>
I'm fully aware of what the word Chaos means in English. That is my personal association with the word and I'm also fully aware that yours probably isn't the same.
but she's not doing it for any meaning, other than she has a crazy life, and tons of crazy guys in and out of her life, and she says her whole life is chaos so he should just get prepared for that... his name will teach him that or whatever... its not some greek type mythology or meaningful type of thing[/b]
That's what I would say if an acquaintance of mine wanted to name her baby Chaos, which is what you asked. I know that's not her reason but that's what I thought of.
If my opinion offended you, I'm sorry I offered it. I thought I'd explain why I don't think the name's absolutely terrible instead of just saying "Hm I like it!".
