What would you say if you had an acquaintance tell you that she is having a boy and naming it

Chaos


She and the dad are really on the outs and fighting alot, and this woman has truly been through the wringer in her life... but to name her child this?

WDYT of this one?

I would say that she clearly isn't thinking! It makes it sound like the baby is unwanted to name it such a conflicting word ... I know it's her & her SO's choice on what they name the child but that is just a little too out there.

Think of it this way, when he's older and becomes a rockstar, he won't have to change his name.

I'll be the odd one out and say I kinda like.
One of my favorite rockers of all time's stage lastname is Havok.
Atleast his will be spelled correctly.

What is she giving him as a middle name? Nothing like Chaos Bob, I hope.
If I was going to do this, I'd give them an awesome first name and make Chaos his middle.
Then, all he has to do is drop his lastname.

she says that she has the right to name him whatever she wants.. she's actually been thinking about it for a while.. and she says she's going through the pain of life, of giving birth, she should name him whatever and people need to back off

i'll suggest the middle name idea!!!

If she's taking that approach, tell her to rename herself Chaos for a week and see how well it works. It's really not a meaning you want to name your kid after.

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.

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>

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
