Sorry. I don't like it. It sounds too much like something I'd expect an X-Men to be named.
Boys will tease boys about anything, especially something you can't change (size, name, weight, etc.). And if you, the parent, can think of a clever or any way to make the name into something you could tease or nickname a kid, I guarantee the boys will be able to as well.
Or, maybe, the opposite will happen and boys will think the name is super badass like "Max" is. At least Max was when I was young.
Also, I don't think a guy would mind being teased by the nn "ride-her". he'd probably feel cool. [/b]
Well thats sad and says alot about the kind of people out there.......Not something I would want my son feeling proud of......
Hmm, well I'd definitely want my son to be proud of his name and blow off a stupid nickname instead of running off to cry in a corner.
I never said anything about a son running off to a corner. Oh but proud because of how that name sounds.....uh no!!!!
Hey its jmo......what are you getting all upset over??? I am entitled to my opinion right??? and imo thats how that name sounds and sorry if you like it but it sounds completely tacky to give a boy at best........SORRY!!!!
LOL! Upset? I don't think so. Clearly I'm not the one using all the excessive punctuation and throwing insults. But really, it's no problem. Of course you are entitled to your opinion. As am I.
I like the name Ryder ... I attended high school with a guy named Ryder (so he would have been born about 76 or 77). He was a fun, unique guy so maybe it just fit with his personality but I don't think he ever got teased for his name. It actually *never* occurred to me till I read this thread that it might sound like "ride her". I wouldn't worry about that
