I think it's ok to name you child with an Asian name if they're not Asian. It's a name, as long as it's not a chicks name for a guy or vice versa i think it's fine. Yea it could be a little difficult in some cases but i think it would be fine. I mean my dad has a crazy greek name (They get pretty stange -.-) and everyone thinks it's cool even though most people call him Spike as a nickname... So yea i say if it has meaning which you like or it's a special name or w/e who you really really like it well go for it, as long as it's not a famous anime characts name like Naruto or Vegeta like the other poster said....then that would just be weird and stange.

I wouldn't. Think about the child.

Not trying to be racist here, but there is a point to be made. If you had a blonde and blue-eyed obviously white daughter, would you name them Lakeisha or Sheniqua? Since these are common names used for black girls, I'm pretty sure you could guess the daughter would be picked on. Same goes for Haruhi and Asian names.

Not saying there's anything wrong with it, but since society doesn't quite accept it, it would be hard on the child.

My Portuguese friend's
middle name is Lee.

His grandfather was Buddhist,
and wanted to name something
related to the people around
him. It was something he respected.

So, I guess if you had a valid reason,
it's alright. Otherwise, some people
just don't accept, "I think it's pretty."

I think Japanese as a language is brilliant, so much smoother. Whoever says English music is better than Japanese music, is probably right on the whole, but there's some songs that make my jaw drop just because the vocals sound so nice.

I'll place £20 on you deciding you want kids later in life ... It'll come in handy when I find myself jobless!

Oi ! I've got a white friend with a name like "Sheniqua." It's spelled "Cheniqua," and pronounced "KEN-ee-Kwuh."

I'm probably going to end up giving my daughter a Chinese name, simply because I was impacted by the Chinese at an early age and think those names are just too cute ^.^ I was born and raised in New York where, as far as I know, cultures, people, and names are diverse. It's not that big of a deal where I come from :P, But I see your point. Sadly, some people have a problem with names. Not just immature little kids in school, but in the business world. They look at your resume and automatically assume a whole load of nonsense. So not fair! As for my son, I might name him "Dwight." or "Jure (It's latin!)"

Anyway's if the name is something simple and not too fancy, I don't see why not. Society needs a good kick in the pants if you ask me

Society is pretty boring these days. They owe it to me for accepting it, not to be boring.

Diversity is what gives society life xD!! Names are a huge part of it, and I think all kinds should be welcome
