I’m sure you know the saying, but does [name_m]Danger[/name_m] really work as a middle name? (I do know someone who’s nickname is [name_m]Danger[/name_m]) What first name would you put with it?

I dont really get why you’d want to name make your son [name_m]Danger[/name_m]. It’s not nice thing so why would you name your child it?

I think it would work though because there’s a trend of names like [name_u]Hunter[/name_u], [name_m]Gunner[/name_m], [name_m]Ransom[/name_m], [name_m]Dagger[/name_m] etc.

Seriously, no.

don’t do it

an article by someone who named their son [name_m]Lincoln[/name_m] [name_m]Danger[/name_m].

I think it’s tacky and immature.

Wow! Lots of responses! I thoight at least 1 person might like it.

Loved the article! Still think it’s cool. I’ll add it to my “baby a day” family, instead of saddling a real child with this. And actually, @detective_chuckles [name_m]Ransom[/name_m] is a name in my family. I like that one too.

At least it’s not “[name_f]Crystal[/name_f] [name_f]Shanda[/name_f] Lear” - now that’s mean!

while its something I probably wouldn’t do, kids these days have crazier names than that. I thought the article would give you another perspective, and several people in the comments had sons with “[name_m]Danger[/name_m]” as their middle name.

Please don’t.


I also agree that [name_m]Danger[/name_m] isn’t a positive namesake, nor are [name_m]Dagger[/name_m], [name_m]Gunner[/name_m], or [name_m]Ransom[/name_m]

TBH I’d totally do it, maybe as a second middle, but only because my best friend told me I couldn’t and I’m petty af.

[name_m]Ransom[/name_m] might be a family name to you but it’s still a horrible thing to name a child. He’s a human not a pet.

It strikes me as extremely cliché - trying to seem kooky and original but missing the mark. And I agree that it’s not cool to use your child’s name as a way to showcase your own “quirky” sense of humour, which is what this would seem like to me.

[name_m]Ransom[/name_m] is a name with a history, derived from “son of [name_m]Rand[/name_m]” in the same way that [name_m]Jackson[/name_m] or [name_m]Wilson[/name_m] originated. Granted, it has an unfortunate modern meaning but I don’t think it’s quite the same thing. Plus, it’s not a punchline in the way that “[name_m]Danger[/name_m] is my middle name… no, really!” is intended to be.

As an aside, I know a child with two perfectly nice, normal names and then Deadly as a second middle. It’s hard to come up with a word name with a less edifying meaning than that one.

[name_m]Danger[/name_m] is a terrible thing to wish on your child.

If I was a boy I would’ve loved to have the middle name [name_m]Danger[/name_m]. [name_f]Imagine[/name_f]:
Person: “Are you sure? It’ll be dangerous.”
You: “Ha! [name_m]Danger[/name_m] is my middle name. Literally.”

Of course, I say that as a girl so…

But still.

[name_m]Danger[/name_m] as a name seems like it’s trying way too hard to be cool and edgy. “[name_m]Danger[/name_m] is my middle name” as a joke is horribly dated. There’s really no objective to giving someone this name that doesn’t fall flat.

There are 11 men in my family tree named [name_m]Ransom[/name_m]. Only 1 is still living, but it was apparently very popular in the 1800s.
