Jan 23, '08I had a step father make his step daughter name her baby boy,
Orso Tatonka. The name came from the movie dances with wolves and means "Bear Buffalo", respectively. The step father and her mother had several small children at home, but they were all girls and we soooo excited they had a male "they "could name.
The family is so messed up, the father of Orso was her sisters boyfriend, and her sister had recently had a baby by the same father. They were happy that the babies would be brother and sister, as well as cousins. Sheesh go figure.
Jan 23, '08Aryan originally means indo-aryan, Indo-iranian, etc. It never meant white or "superior race" until Hitler decided to use the term. I doubt he even knew it referenced actually ancient dark skinned people of the mesopotamian and indan continents. Just like the swastika was actually an African symbol. interestingly if you go to Concord, NH to the public library and look up at the building, it is adorned with swastikas all around the facade. It was built I think in 1933, a year after Nazis began using the symbol.

Jan 24, '08Quote from kukukajooi figured swastika to be indian in origin, not african. have seen on tv that temples and statues in india adorned with it. so looked it up on wikepedia.aryan originally means indo-aryan, indo-iranian, etc. it never meant white or "superior race" until hitler decided to use the term. i doubt he even knew it referenced actually ancient dark skinned people of the mesopotamian and indan continents. just like the swastika was actually an african symbol. interestingly if you go to concord, nh to the public library and look up at the building, it is adorned with swastikas all around the facade. it was built i think in 1933, a year after nazis began using the symbol.
the word swastika is derived from the sanskrit svastika (in devanagari, स्वस्तिक), meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote good luck.
here is the wikepidia link. very interesting to read up on.

Jan 24, '08Etnecniv, which is Vincente spelled backwards. The dad wanted to name the baby after himself so he and the mother decided this was the best way to do it without having a junior.

Jan 26, '08Quote from BabyRN2BeIf csuf_student_nurse 's mother saw this first hand then the myth would be debunkedWhat a coincidence! That's my baby's name! I'd been considering it and even had a few people from here vote on it! The choices were "Female", "Orangello" and "Lemonjello." When she was born, she was already named "Female" because that's what was on her hospital wristband. I thought it must be fate and therefore she's known as "Female." It even rhymes with Tamale! :trout:
Just so you know, that's an old urban legend. You can read about it at http://www.snopes.com/racial/language/names.asp
Let me go bang my head now after reading about baby "Female" for the umpteenth time...
