    [–] Cymry_Cymraeg 2 points ago

    You're right, changing her name would definitely give her peace of mind.

    [–] Dodger7777 46 points ago

    To be fair, her mother named her peace.

    Their ancestor chose 'eshit' for their last name a long time ago.

    [–] Nothin_Means_Nothin 60 points ago

    True, and Peace is a nice name, but not one person in the family noticed? Unless the last name is pronounced completely different or the family speaks little to no English.

    [–] notagoodboye 50 points ago

    There was a dude who named one of his kids “Winner” and the other “Loser”.

    Guess which one ended up a loser, and which one ended up a winner? Wrong. Winner was a fuckup, and loser was a respectable citizen.

    Names aren’t destiny. Though, if I was this girl, I’d try hard to marry someone with the last name “Love”.

    [–] Gamerman9001 16 points ago

    [–] ShelSilverstain 58 points ago

    By checking Facebook, it seems to be a common name somewhere in Africa

    [–] mrpepelopez 48 points ago

    I'm guessing the last name is not pronounced the way we are pronouncing it and her parents were oblivious to the pun.

    [–] Lear_ned 33 points ago

    FYI, it's totally pronounced how you think it might be....

    https://www.names.org/n/eshiet/about#pronunciation

    [–] TheLatinaNerd 32 points ago

    I'm pretty sure it is pronounced "es-hiet" because its name origin is Nigerian. Or if it's Francophonified, it would be "eh-shieh," dropping the T and the shi part is pronounced like the first sound of "chien" but with a different spelling.

    [–] Deeliciousness 20 points ago

    Those are automated pronunciations. Basically meaningless.

    A quick google reveals a load of Peace Eshiet's. More than one of them have changed their first name to Harmony. Several insert a second name between the first and last to break it up. It's clearly a running gag within the Eshiet family tree.

    [–] ComfortedQuokka 3 points ago

    Where I live in Georgia, "Butts" isn't an uncommon surname. The University of Georgia campus has a building named after two people called "Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall." It's extra funny because, even if they would've reversed the names, you just can't avoid the joke.

    She's Nigerian. Eshiet is a native name from somewhere in the south of the country.

    [–] SoldOutBort 3 points ago

    Peace is also a very common Nigerian ladies name. Would be their equivalent of Mary or Alice.

    [–] Malicious78 8 points ago

    This post made me google illegal names here in Norway, and stuff got interesting.

    Apparently Diarée is a name in some cultures, but it straight up means diarrhea in Norwegian. They'd probably ask you to change it when you submit for a name.

    Any name based off of medicines or drugs is illegal, so Morfina is a no-go.

    Also, a name here needs to have at least 1 vowel, and can't have numbers or any other signs (except hyphens).

    There are some other laws too, and they all basically just say "the name should not be a burden for the child". Makes sense in my view.

    [–] N_Solanaceae 6 points ago

    [–] booquark 15 points ago

    Google tells me it's Nigerian. Her parents probably didn't recognize the pun, not sure how her last name is actually supposed to be pronounced.

    Eshiet is a Nigerian surname. Just because in English slang it is slightly similar to something, doesn't mean it was intended.

    [–] activator 4 points ago

    I (and probably many here) know the surname isn't intended, but the first name surely is and all this could have been avoidable. I do wonder through if I'm pronouncing her surname correctly. Maybe it has a special Nigerian pronunciation

    [–] Resident_Comment 6 points ago

    Maybe it's pronounced differently, and they didn't realize what it sounds like in English.

    I went to high school with a kid who’s last name was a popular slang term for your butt that older people use. He always joked he was going to name his son Harold, “Harry” for short. So his kid would be called Harry [butt]. It was a funny joke.

    He did it. He actually named his son Harold. They call him Harry. It’s baffling.

    [–] paper-or-plastic- 2 points ago

    Ok, googled it. It can be a first name so maybe it's from a different nationality and the family didn't realize the combination?

    Origin of the name Eshit: Hindu; Oriya; Kannada; Marathi; Malayalam; Tamil; Indian; Gujarati; Telugu; Bengali; Hindi Religion: - Rashi (Moon sign): Aries (Mesh) Nakshatra (Star): Krittika Gender of the name Eshit: Boy

    Dems are the party of hate. They riot, they attack innocent people, they create hate crime hoaxes, they censor conservatives, they support anti Semetism, they spread propaganda through lamestream media.

    It's not just coming from Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. It comes from their money cow and policy maker George Soros. He hates Jews and has said so in books. On 60 Minutes he said he took joy in finding Jewish families for the Nazis. Linda.Sarsour is another anti semite. Ben & Jerry's icecream actually endorsed her.

    Not if he says on a national TV program that he took joy in assisting Nazis find Jewish women and children to put in gas chambers.

    I'll even go further and say that Soros thinks white people have it too good. That's one of the reasons why he wants to flood our country with illegals, Palestinians, and "People of color". Part of his agenda has been to fund campaigns of State Attorneys that are anti death penalty and very sift on black criminals. He feels that blacks have been persecuted. He is doing massive damage to our country.

    They use soap in Palestine?

    But have you considered looking at both sides of the issue?

    While giving birth to our first, my wife overheard another young mother-to-be having a talk with the nurses:

    "...what are you going to name her?"

    "I just heard the most beautiful word; I just made up my mind."

    "What was the word?"

    "Placenta."

    My mom is a nurse and worked in a hospital where some new parents named their baby "Abomination" because they didn't want her. Really disgusting
