I'm a black guy and my name is davion pronounced (davey-un) if that makes sense? im almost 20 and I sometimes think i would be better off with a more normal name. i have 4 brothers and my parents gave the rest of them normal names like, anthony, terrence, demetrius and then keith. unless you consider the name Demetrius and anthony ghetto but i think its better than mine. i think terrence and keith are the most normal.
I honestly don't know why black people give their kids ghetto or uncommon names. I don't hate my parents, I just feel like they made my life a little harder, im already black and they could have just named me something normal or simple. I think a name like michael or sarah just looks better. But at the the same time, I don't really hate my name, but i don't love it. I just care a little more how it looks but I would feel kinda weird with another name after all of this time. Also im pretty sure it would be a lot legal crap I would have to go through and money spent just to change it.
