The following is a list of names of people I have actually met.
See if you notice something about each of those names.
What do they have in common?
In case you hadn’t noticed, each one of the individuals named here is a MAN!
And it makes me wonder…..what kind of parent would give their son a girl’s name?
Seriously. Is this normal? Or just close enough?
I couldn't even find examples of this in the Bible.
The women in the Bible have names like Eve, Naomi, Ruth, Mary, Martha, Sarah, and names like that. And not one of those women would be mistaken for a man by the mere mention of her name.
But with some guys? I just don’t know.
At work, I have learned to ask someone first if there is any doubt.
I’m not criticizing these guys or judging them, I just think it’s weird.
Maybe that’s why some of those fellows go by their middle name (unless, of course, their middle name happens to be Nancy or something), or go by a nickname like Butch, or Duke, or Stinky, or Bubba.
Do you know of a guy with what could also be a girl’s name?
I was just wondering.
