Sariah, Isabel, Abish, Eve, Sarah, and Mary.

 

That is the total of names from the Book of Mormon you can choose for your daughters.

 

Way different from the Moroni, Nephi, Sam and so forth you have for your sons.

 

If you and your friends choose to name the kids after Book of Mormon characters the girls are slighted big time.

 

Even if you add in more current L-d$,inc names like Emma, Eliza and Zina you fall short in the coolness factor to Zelph and Mahonri.

 

Even in names the girls remain way behind the magical moronicPriesthood types.

I've been irritated by the fact forever! Glad to know I'm not alone. 

 

In seminary, they always made such a big deal about Ruth. "Ruth was so special that she was even included in the Bible!" "Ruth was so righteous God made sure she had her own book!" blah blah blah. Yeah, she was included, but she got like 3 pages. And all they really talked about was how she waited righteously for her husband. Stupid.

I’ve begun worshiping the sun for a number of reasons. First of all, unlike some other gods I could mention, I can see the sun. It’s there for me every day. And the things it brings me are quite apparent all the time: heat, light, food, a lovely day. There’s no mystery, no one asks for money, I don’t have to dress up, and there’s no boring pageantry. And interestingly enough, I have found that the prayers I offer to the sun and the prayers I formerly offered to God are all answered at about the same 50-percent rate.” George Carlin

Relatives of our gave their children BoM names including Nephi, Joseph, Sam and Sariah.

 

Then they got divorced and the kids ended up with the apostate parent.

 

Nephi got the worst of it. The poor kid is in his late 20s, lives outside the Moridor, and still has to explain his name to folks he meets.  Either that, or he is automatically assumed to be LDS, which irks him even more.

Probably a blessing in disguise as far as naming your kids goes.

 

There are tons of Nephis, Moronis, and Almas (which is sad, that's a girl's name in Latino cultures) that are deeply ashamed of their names. Think of all that grief you're sparing your girls!

And no mormonish parents dare name a daughter "Joy", as in "...man was made that he might have... "   A scripture that always sprang to mind when I'd meet a girl named Joy.
