Here certain names are popular among different income groups and social groups.

High income parents mostly name their child after a flower or take a very Dutch or French name like: Annemijn, Klaartje, Florien, Madelief, Lodewijk or Olivier.

While parents from a lower class mostly pick an English or American name for their children like Samantha, Sharon, Danny, Jessica, Wesley or Ricardo.

Do other countries have the same kind of name giving?

In Mexico, the names for the poor (80% of population) are always derived from the Bible:

Jesus = Jesús
Pedro = Peter
Pablo = Paul
María = Mary
Juan = John
Abrahán = Abraham
etc.

This is because the poor are very religious and priests in poor areas insist that the names for people must be "Christian", so names must come from the Bible.

The middle-class (15% of population) have no particular name system and may use Biblical names like the poor, or just get names from wherever... you see a lot of Jimmies and other "American" or English names among these people.

The rich have names of kings or nobility, dictators, etc...

Felipe = Phillip (kings of France and Spain)
Carlos = Charles (King Charles... many kings named Charles)
Adolfo = Adolf (after Adolf Hitler)
etc.

in the US, Canada, and Mexico there is a Neo-Nazi movement that is becoming more and more popular.

In Germany, the Nazi movement is pretty much dead. Aside from those few nut jobs.

In Austria, it's almost non-existent.

At least where I am at, the Neo-Nazis are indistinguishable from any other gang, focusing more on appearance and cultivating their reputation then much of anything else. They achieve this the same way as any other gang as well. Not much of a movement.

Canada?

I don't think so. Not only is it ingrained in our society that such thinking is bad, but publishing materials, holding events, or speaking that is pro neo-nazi gets you in trouble, very, very quickly.

"There are strange things done in the midnight sun,
by the men who moil for gold; the arctic trails have their secret tales that'd make your blood run cold...
the Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see...
was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, that I cremated Sam McGee."

The only people who care about what Neo-Nazis say in America is the general public, and nobody seems to care what they think about anything anymore. Not even the gov'ment.

Well it is certainly not considered to be good in Europe either.

Did you guys hear about the Neo-Nazi couple who found out they were Jewish? They're devout Jews now. What an irony.

Yep.

Quote:
 
(Sept. 25) -- Two Polish neo-Nazis who were childhood sweethearts and later became skinheads have discovered what for them is a shocking family secret: They're actually Jewish.

Pawel and Ola, identified only by their first names, are the subject of a CNN documentary about Poles rediscovering their Jewish roots generations after their ancestors hid their religious identities to escape persecution during World War II.

A few years ago, Ola found out from Warsaw's Jewish Historical Institute that both she and her husband are technically Jews. "It was unbelievable -- it turned out that we had Jewish roots. It was a shock," she said.

At the time, she and Pawel were active in Warsaw's neo-Nazi movement. "I was a nationalist 100 percent. Back then when we were skinheads it was all about white power... that Jews were the biggest plague and the worst evil of this world," Pawel said.

Both 33, they've now embraced their Jewish identity and are active in their local orthodox synagogue.

"I'm not saying that I don't have regrets but it's not something that I walk around and lash myself over... I feel sorry for those that I beat up," Pawel said. "But I don't hold a grudge against myself."
