9781508536178: The Black Names Book: Dissecting and Defining the Origins of Contemporary 'Ghetto' Names

Can you pronounce "Antwaneisha", “Breionshay” , or “Tayvarius”? The Black Names Book investigates the origin of names commonly referred to as “Ghetto”, “Ratchet” and “Hood”, in American society by dissecting them. The lesson that the book teaches is that the lion share of “Black Names” aren’t African at all, but are unique names that come from combinations of two or more names, names constructed with common prefixes and suffixes, “foreign” names, and names of other nouns. In many cases, names are “conjugated” with a formula that can be applied to names such as DaNiqua, LaNisha, and Tayshaun. In between the different naming conventions, research is addressed regarding the affect that these unique names have on society such as getting job interviews. At the back of the book is a glossary of the “Base Names” which are the “common” names that the Black Names are derived from. Reader suggestions for names can be emailed to: blacknamesbook@gmail.com
