Do you think these names will effect my kids?

Does your name on your resume/application really effect us getting a job?

I've always wanted to name my kids unique names, but I then had to think about all the consequences a "unique" name can have.

I went 26 years repeating my name because people couldn't pronounce it. It is Leticia, pronounced exactly the way it is spelled.(Le-t-c-ia), but I kept getting the name Latisha, Latasha. Now I know it is not that my name is difficult, but people are ignorant and lazy, they don't try to learn a person's names because my name isn't even ghetto or hard to pronounce. So I decided I didn't want my kids to go through that, but I don't want them to have simple names like Ashley, Brittany, or Jessica.

These are the names(please give your opinions)

Girls

-Journey

-Jhesinee or Jessi

boys

-Jamarick or Jamar

Do you think these names will effect my kids?

Update:

I really want Jhesinee's nickname to be Jessi and Jamarick's nickname Jamar

Update 2:

@Markayla...what is the difference between Lamar and Jamar. Jemarius and Jamarick?

Journey can also be spelled Jurnee

    Journey is totally acceptable. Easy to pronounce, easy to write.

    Jhesinee is different, though. Most people won't know how to pronounce or spell it.

    Jessi is a good name. No worries there.

    Jamarick.. It's unique, but not crazy.

    Same goes for Jamar.

    Journey, Jessi and Jamar/Jamarick are okay.

    Personally...yes -.-

    Only because Journey, eh, I don't think it is appropriate for a name.

    Jhesinee, um, that is a really weird name.

    Now, you can be unique, just not like this.

    Jessi is fine, I love that name actually.

    For the boys

    Jamarick & Jamar, no.

    How about Jemarius or Lamar.

    Don't be like Beyonce naming her baby BLUE Ivy lol xD

    You go on and on about how you had 26 years of repeating your name, (which isn't that difficult) and then you want to give your children much much MUCH more unusual and (some) unpronouncable names. Jessi...OK... but Journey? Seriously? Jhesinee? The h is for??? Is it pronounced Ju-Hes-in-ee? Jamarick??? Jamar I can live with. Giving your children names to demonstrate your own inventivness is ultimately selfish. Classic biblical is the way to go... never go out of fashion, everyone knows how to pronouce and they are CLASSY.

    I once read a study that said unfortunately people do discirminate individuals based on their names and are less likely to be taken seriously if they have an unusual name. When I read your ? in my head and saw Leticia I did pronounce it Latisha because that is grammarically correct, sorry but I can understand it being annoying. You can name your children anything you like and I don't feel Journey or Jamar are so unique,strange or hard to pronounce. good luck to you

    All the names that you have above could easily be mis-spelt as well as mis-pronounced. And I take issue with the fact that you think people are lazy because they do not pronounce your name correctly. It is an unusual name and if they have not come across it before then they will probably pronounce it incorrectly. I have had my name for 57 years and I have to remind people how to pronounce and spell my name. If you have an unusual or difficult to spell surname then I suggest a simpler first name, nothing worse than having to spell both your names?

    Source(s): Have had to spell my first name and my surnames (maiden and married) all my life, hated it as a kid but came to realise this is one of the ways that make me unique and everyone knows who I am!

    Source(s): just because those name will really effect ur child =( =(
  • Try the names for girls: Jessi, Vanessa, and Emily.

    Boys: Jason, Nicholas, Eric.

    These names wont affect your child like the others. :]

    Journey looks better. It is still unique without looking illiterate.

  • 9 years ago

    a name is a name and it doesnt matter what your name is if you fit a job description and a hard worker then they wouldnt turn you down just because of your name.

    I like your names i dont like the usual boring names i like different ones. if your happy with calling your children them names then call it them :) it wont affect them and once a baby is named it suits them!

    I liek both names very unique and different.

    Good luck
