Jigaboos give their sprogs odd-sounding names so they will always stand out, so that they will be the constant object of harassment and forever have a chip on their shoulder and a built-in excuse for blaming "Whitey" for their messed-up existence.

Figlio found that poorly educated black women overwhelmingly gave
their children names that begin with certain prefixes, such as "lo,"
"ta" and "qua," and certain suffixes, such as "isha" and "ious."
The variable here is not teacher perception, although it is the peculiar perversion of American commentators on education to scapegoat the
teacher. The variable is, of course, socio-economic background. Parental level of education and family income correlate highly with level of
student achievement because generally middle class homes are far more hospitable to homework, supportive of reading and study, and consistent
with the values which govern schools. Names reflect class, the most
powerful determinant of educational achievement we know. Middle-class
black students with middle class names are accused of "acting white" by recalcitrant students who identify with resisting education. The
expedient of changing names to improve educational outcomes is mostly witchcraft; but if having a more normative name helps a child identify
with learning, prospects improve.

You're full of shit of course, whites give their kids some of the silliest names of any group, names I wouldn't give a dog.
