I only overheard this one. I don't know how they spell it. Maybe it's Kenyon. Or Kynyn. Or some other bastardization. Who knows.

Anyway, the kid in question was a little blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl. Definitely not from the country of Kenya, if you get my drift here. I mean, would you take a little African kid from Zaire and name him Belgian? How about a little Chinese kid named Colombian? Or an Australian named Iraqi?

I know, I know. They didn't really mean to name their kid something that suggests an African origin. They were just trying to be cute.

CLASSICAL NAMES EXIST FOR REASONS. One of them is to save people from their own ignorance.
