(Pronunciation of these names become more dramatic as well.) Jasmine becomes Jazzmynn Angel become Annjil Examples…… • The Jello twins Orangejello (A Ron Zello) & Lemonjello (Lee Mon Zello) Ridiculous example….. (Shu-teehd) Highly Educated parents & their children’s name • More highly educated parents name their children accordingly based on tradition, often biblical names. • The names in this field are different from one another and literarily seem more “artful”, but these names are not dramatic in spelling nor pronounciation. • Ex: Marie-Claire, Lucienne, High-income parents • When a popular name among High-income parents appear in a generation, the next generation to two generations of low-income parents seem to adopt this name. In Conclusion… • All sides of the spectrum, low and high income as well as poorly and highly educated, all abandoned names that became TOO popular and seek a difference when naming their children. • Often names chosen are perceived as “Successful” sounding names. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ •THE FREAKONIMIC END!!!
