Loss of one's reputation; shame; dishonor.
The civilization was composed over the years based upon the ignominy of the birth givers.

A word that is used to indicate that you want to get high with the person you are conversing with. Placed in conversation randomly, it will not make sense to anyone else listening to the conversation.
1. "Cathy did very well on her test today. I wonder if, ignominy, she beat Larry."

2. "Ignominy bro, ignominy."

3. "I want to get so ignominy that I just sit on my couch and laugh at the ceiling."

A person so incompetent and excessivley stupid, that they are unworthy to be a part of society and should be cast out of the sight (and more importantly hearing range) of all other human beings. They are more commonly known as cretins, who excel at using thousands upon thousands of words to say nothing at all.
Since the Michael Moore tribe has officially become Stalinist and banned any more speech critical of Moore by their new Mooron administrator, Moore's America hating idiotic lies and propaganda clearly show that he and all who listen to him are ignominious and should be forever banished from society.

A word used far too many times in the Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, a book in which everyone speaks like they had just finished writing a copy of the King James Bible. It basically means public shame or disgrace.
"By bringing me hither, to die this death of triumphant ignominy before the people! Had either of these agonies been wanting, I had been lost forever."
