Stupid American names


Recommended Posts

A big reason for stupid American names is Ellis Island.


They were processing so many immigrants through there that the immigration official would just write anything they wanted as the person's name. Sometimes just doing it phonetically, sometimes calling them by the name of the town they were from, sometimes just making things up entirely.


The black population experienced the same thing for an entirely different reason. Slavery caused them to be labelled with any number of b*stardized English names or ones which were completely created for amusement.


Ha ha ha.
