    I'm guessing Gwyneth (sp?) Paltrow and Chris Martin (Coldplay) had a kid (girl?).

    Ouch...Not a good name is an understatement.

    At least it's not Moon Unit.
  8. When short it's a fine name, but the second half just kind of ruins it a little. :smug:

    This is one of my big personal soapbox issues. My parents gave me a bad name. My last name is a common first name. And my first name is a common last name. So well-meaning idiots have insisted on correcting me when I introduce myself for my whole life. My name is Wayne Roy. Yes, I know. I should have been a cowboy. Based on that, I hate when parents give kids bad/stupid/goofy/Kree8ive-Leigh spelled names.

    People! Listen to me!

    If you are going to reproduce, THINK about what you are naming your child, for God's sake.

    I work in a childrens hospital, and I see a bunch of kids whose parents should have been slapped when they named their babies. My favorite was a Mom who pronounced her kids name 'Sha-theed' but spelled it like what you call people who cut you off in traffic.

    My girlfriend is a birth registrar(sp?)- she fills out and notarizes birth certificates. I get to hear all sorts of stories of stupid names people give their kids. Apparantly the big thing this year is to name your kid "Unique". And some people actually name their kid "Lord". Ugh.

    well, that seems more like a problem with spelling due to it being translated into another language....(i'm guessing she's south asian because the name sure sounds like it...?)

    kinda the same with me but i love my name now (say it three times fast: Qurrat-ul-Ain..yes that's my first name..)...my middle name, Ain, is a part of my first name, and that's where i get my nickname Annie....but when i was young my parents wrote it "Ainy" because that's a direct translation from Urdu script....worst instance was when my teacher in first grade was like Ainy? whose Ainy...umm..you've only been teaching me for a year now...so i changed my spelling in third grade...

    wow this is rambling...

    otoh, i know a kid named Freedom and i think his brother's name is something similarily different
