Cam Newton's Son's Name is Chosen

Recommended Posts

It's a free world (at least where I live), so name your child what you want. But, naming your child Chosen, IMO, is akin to naming your child Jesus Christ or The Messiah. I don't care how non-arrogant Newton is off the field as many have suggested. This is yet another point suggesting this guy is as arrogant as they come. Again, name your child what you want, but I don't know how anyone can suggest this guy is not full of himself.

I think it has something to do with Cam's jersey number.  His son is the Chosen 1.  Not something I'd name my child if I had one, but to each their own

I'm all for a good sense of humor, but not everything has to be punchlines and quips. Really hard to be fond of people where everything is a joke. I'm sure if I knew Cam personally, it'd be different (or at least I would hope).

It is common in Spanish speaking nations to name children "Jesus".  My tour guide when I was in Spain was named Jesus.

Why the nitpicking on this stuff at times? What he names his child is his own business and he can name him whatever he wants. Just like if he ever wants to dance it up on the field he isn't hurting anyone either.

 

BTW "Chosen" is not the same as "Chosen One".......

 

I don't think he is calling his kid Jesus Christ so relax.

A lot better than "Dick". I never understood that name.

Few if any actually named Dick...that's a nickname for Richard.

Richard ---> Rick which rhymes with Dick, same as Robert ---> Rob which rhymes with Bob. Rhyming nicknames were popular in medieval England and it just stuck. To the point that Dick was such a generic name for a man you get the "any Tom, Dick or Harry" expression.

I love the expression "Too long for Dick; Too short for Richard", I'd found it childishly amusing when I was younger.

As I stated, he has the right to name his child what he wants, I was only expressing my personal opinion of his choice. And of course, he can dance it up on the field, pretend he's Superman, point his finger up in the "1" gesture (I know that's his jersey number, but most would agree that's not what he's referring to), etc. Personally, I prefer a more humble person. Those are attributes of an arrogant person. Arrogance isn't something looked upon positively by most. Also, Chosen isn't the same as Chosen One, but it's easy enough to at least think that's where he's going with the name. There's not one thing about Cam Newton that suggests any sort of humility, a positive character by most accounts.

I have relatives from South Carolina who criticize Cam for no reason at all and it makes no sense to me since they should be thrilled to have such a good team and a good young QB as Panthers fans. Instead they prefer to nitpick every little thing on him and sometimes yes they can sound borderline racist too with comments they have made to me on him. I can get on edge at times with the Cam nitpicking I hear offline and it can spread to me online since I hear this a lot every year from my relatives. 

 

We should just enjoy the fact that we have such a good young QB to watch and enjoy who also has confidence and by all accounts from what I hear is also a good person and teammate.  He is clearly confident in himself but thats not a crime, he at least has fun with life and isn't breaking any rules.

 

Guys like Cam are the future just like Luck is.

I will admit it's not the best of names but then again I have heard a lot of lousy names in my life to begin with.

 

He also said he didn't want his kid to be a Junior.

He said it had something to do with not putting pressure on his son.

 

I guess naming him Chosen really isn't putting any pressure...

 

c'mon man !

LOL, as one article I read suggested...someone asked "Who are you"? He would say "I am Chosen". You can see where it goes from there.

It seems alot of those in the limelight  try to see who can outdo each other by  coming up with the most bizarre names.   Doesn't bother me, but it may bother their children.   :dunno:

 

Our daughter still complains that she could never find things with her name on it when we were on vacations and the boys ALWAYS found their names....    btw,  she doesn't have a weird name, it's just the spelling of Lindsay was more popular back then  than Lindsey.

  haha

I think everyone should have the option to change their names when they become older anyway and better realize who they are.

Chosen implies that he was somehow picked out of a larger group.....maybe he should have been named Accident or Immp (I Missed My Period)?

    • they cant just go from waiver claim to practice squad on another team, he would have to be on their roster a while before they can do that.
    • It will be interesting to see how Watson does without Hopkins. If they won the division again that would show me a lot. Losing Hopkins is a huge blow.
    • That's fair. Watson is mostly due to age, but I think he's finally good enough to lead them to the playoffs. However, they will decline soon with some contracts running out. I see Luck as 32 in football years because I believe he'd be rusty for a year. Just a guess though. I would take Watson too because I feel he's non injury-prone, and that's good for a long-term answer at QB. I would take Luck back in a heartbeat though as long as we didn't have to pay him anything if he retired again.
    • I got my refund notice email today. 
    • Like I posted, I can see the other 3 being rated higher but Watson has only 1 playoff win in his career, never has been to a championship game either. Luck has 4 playoff wins and has been to a championship game. Watson has never had a season where he has thrown for 40 TD's either, Luck has had one (2014) and in 2018 Luck had 39 - nearly 2. Luck outplayed Watson by a mile in their 2018 playoff matchup. So I disagree Watson is better, he is younger but not better. Luck is only 31 so it is not like he is old. Rodgers is even a lot older.
