Hungary, Guam, Micronesia, and plumbers
Popular Names in Hungary
Aside from Goulash and Ferenc Rahozzi, Hungary has introduced a slew of names for use with our children. These names all appear to be useful at first glance. But step carefully. If your child is slight, and more Aryan than Ashkenazi, a Boldizsar may backfire. These are the most popular names in Hungary, and as such, should be avoided.
Popular Names in Guam, Micronesia, and the South Pacific
Granted the combined population of Guam, Micronesia, and Kinbati is less than a million people, but popular names in this region are still a difficult sell. Again, it is important to note that if you and your family stem from this region... by all means, name your child in some manner to reflect your heritage. Additionally, merchant marines and various commercial fishermen may use these names. However, these names should never be taken out of context and used cross-culturally, for obvious reasons. For clarification, the literal definitions of these names are listed here.
Aruniui: Man of the sea.
Babeldaob: The upper ocean.

Not everyone wants his or her child to grow up to be a plumber. However, for those who want to instill a strong work ethic in their children, time spent plumbing can provide a sound education. But step carefully. Naming your child to give him or her the best shot at becoming a plumber can be dangerous. Not every Thomas Crapper has overcome his curse and gone on to greatness. A few historical plumbers have overcome their given names and become famous for something other than their skills with a two-inch pipe wrench. Remember, the names below are exceptions to the rule, and should be treated as such.
