My partner and I were discussing old family names, and what we would name a child, if we were to have one. It's a fun activity for young couples, and yes, stressful too. What kept coming up however was how to respect each-others backgrounds most equitably. Her heritage is Danish and Irish, while mine is Irish and Scottish. I've always enjoyed thinking of a son named Henrik, or maybe a daughter named Freyja. What surprises me is how shocked some people are to hear that. "But, you're not Scandinavian." My response is usually a blank stare.
As a Man, my say is not law. I am not "in-charge." Their mother's heritage is just as important as mine. For the purpose of this post however, let's surmise that our child's name reflected neither of our backgrounds. My opinion is, so what? As Pagans, I implore you, don't be race motivated. Be history motivated, be family motivated, and yes, be culturally motivated. Culture is a living, changing entity that we all add to and grow with. It can be as inclusive as you are willing to be. Race however is a relatively recent construct for the sole purpose of suppressing others.
I could write about this for hours, but I think I'll just go to bed. Love yourselves for who you are, and what you are part of folks, not the color of your skin or how easily pronounceable your name may be.
