DT Namewatch #23: "There is no such thing as a 'good' name or a 'bad' name" edition

  • Lichai and Ila, well-dressed brother and sister [via babble]
  • Alastair Roderic Craigellachie Dalhousie Gowan Donnybristle MacMac, aka Wee Gillis. I think MacMac's my favorite. [via nybr]
  • Widuran Bertram, source of the quote in the title [via bbc]
  • Remo, Italian fashion executive
  • Junya, Japanese designer. I've been thinking about it a lot; can a non-Japanese kid ever pull off a Japanese name? [both via nyt]

    No, non-Japanese kids cannot pull off Japanese names. In fact, I think half-Japanese kids can hardly pull it off unless they're raised in Japan.

    Our kid's quarter Japanese, and we recognized early on that the Japanese name wudn't gonna fly.
