Comments for WISDOM:

I'm so sorry for a kid named Wisdom, especially if they're not so smart.

Once again, I find a, to me, normal word that is turned into a name, and I'm starting to get fed up with it. Words like Sunshine, Happy, Flower, Rainbow and Love are nice words to me but are not names. I wish people would stop confusing words with names and torturing their children with it. I have a friend called Joy but I think that one's not so bad. Not to mention we're Dutch so we don't use it as a word like English speaking people do.

I'd also like to say that of all these words/names, Wisdom is definitely the most ridiculous one I've seen yet.

I think this would be better off as a surname.

Wisdom may be a valuable thing to have, but as a name, it sounds plain bizarre. Now, picture a parent shouting to their child: ''Wisdom, let's go!''. With your hand on your heart, would you not laugh? Would you not roll your eyes? Just imagine if Wisdom turns out stupid and obnoxious. This is quite a name to live up to. Other kids would surely make fun of a kid named Wisdom.

As a surname, Marvel Comics' Pete Wisdom - a mutant member of Excalibur. He has the ability to create "hot knives" out of his fingers.

Why do I have the feeling that only stupid people would name their kid Wisdom?

Wisdom has nothing to do with being smart. It means knowing the right thing to do and doing it. Maybe if some people had a name like this they wouldn't wind up blowing people up or shooting people.

Back in the era of the Pilgrims, we often named children after values such as Patience or Hope. This appears to be the same idea but stretched beyond sanity. How is this even a name? Wouldn't you look beyond meaning for once and notice the sound? When we think wisdom, some may think smart or wise, but many connect that with bearded elderly men (nothing against wisdom itself or those wise elderly men). I myself would always think of wisdom teeth. Neither is desirable. I would also like to take this chance to say that I mean no offense to anyone and would like to apologize to any who took it.

Brings back memories of getting my wisdom teeth removed. Bad, bad memories. *shudders*

Naming your child Wisdom? Very unwise. Sophia and even Sage would be preferable.

Imagine when Wisdom gets her wisdom teeth pulled.

This isn't a 'sunflower' name, Wisdom is very common in the Native American heritage and is normally a family name. It's different and unique and not very cookie cutter, not everyone is going to like the name but must we bash it?

I think it's a nice name. It sounds much more pleasant then most.
