When you’re looking at your child’s school report card, one of the things that will probably jolt you is the fact that he or she has been named Propety. In elementary school they are named after a legendary character from the Bible who was known for being wise and talking to snakes. So how did this particular student get his or her name? There are a number of theories.
One possibility is that the teacher assigned the students the name Propety because it was very easy to pronounce. The teachers probably asked their colleague if they could help pronounce it, and another name was suggested by someone else. Another idea is that the name was given to the boy by one of his friends. This might explain the fact that the child always speaks in front of his or her classmates and that no names are offered.
The other theory about the name Propety is that it comes from the school’s mascot. At one time, there was a bear named Propney. His owner, Mr. Proty, liked the name so much that he made the pronunciation slightly more difficult. The result was that the pronunciation is often very different; however, the pronunciation of the name has been the same for quite some time now.
Another possibility is that the child was born in Georgia, and that his first name was Propox. This would make sense because Proptty is another word for Prospica, which is another word for Persia. Persia is another country in the world that’s located in what’s known as the Middle East. Therefore, there’s a good chance that the name Propety was given when the child was either born in Georgia or in Persia.
Regardless of which of these theories is right, you can be assured that the name of your child isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. You can use another popular name that’s not as bizarre as Propety. Or you can choose another alphabet instead of the religious underpinnings of the name.
One more name that might be a better fit is Peppy. This is a name that actually sounds pretty good. It’s a name that kids can use without creating any sort of commotion. Of course, if your child happens to have a slightly different name from the child on the show, then this isn’t going to be a great option. Just keep in mind how much time and effort you’re willing to spend finding a name for your little bundle of joy.
