Ahh baby names in the US. Your can either Give them easy to say names like Neil and maya OR You can give them super unique names like atharva, and then force them to have cool nick names. I know a dude named Usmaan who goes by Oz which is cool.

Hey. Criteria for name being easy in school or SBux is fkin ridiculous. Every can say Priyanka Chopra or Mikhael Gorbachev. Go with your culture and select a name that you find is from today. There will be many. All of us believe in “Rashi” or some sort of religious criteria. Stick to it. Do not take away from the kids what your parents gave you

Don’t do Prem.. Prem will sound like On-Prem and you will regret later. Whatever you wanna name, go to Starbucks and order a coffee with that name.. if you have to say it twice, reject it.

Mother superannuated today and was able to watch her farewell speech. Feeling very emotional (i.e. tearing up at midday) as I recall our humble beginnings and how much my middle class family has sacrificed and achieved. My parents sent their only daughter for higher education abroad and it is tough to see them grow old. Getting exposed to so many new facets of life as a 25F…. just one of those days. Kind words only please 🙏

I’m pregnant!? And I’m getting a job offer tomorrow. I need to know a million things like their insurance packages (I really want to keep my Kaiser insurance) and whether they offer paid leave before the one year FMLA mark. What else do I need to know? How do I ask all this stuff? How concerned should I be about disclosing my pregnancy considering I just tested positive, and I barely know these people?

Ladies, How do you feel about dating someone with a child from a previous marriage? It's bothering me for some reason - I feel badly about it, I don't know why I feel this way. It just seems like such a special connection to have with someone and makes my connection with him seem less significant. Please no mean comments, I'm just being honest and wondering what other people's experiences are. TIA

Going through a tough time personally. Spouse wanted to stop working when we moved here with our kid. Had troubled times back home as we were staying with our parents. Was hoping things would go back to normal here. But the streak seems to continue. Fed up of the daily fights and now I am thinking of separating. But it worries me that my spouse not working may put her down even if I support financially. Worried about my daughter if we separate. Any inputs from folks who faced something lik this?

Big picture question: How did you settle on a FIRE number? Originally I did the simple "estimated annual living expenses divided by 4% rule", but am now second guessing that for many reasons. For example, if I want to live on 70,000 per year, I'll need 1.75MM... but what if 70,000 in 20 years won't be a ton of money? Also, what about saving up for kid's college funds? How to account for the possibility of tax law changes? So many questions!
