    Are you ranting? Yeah your kid is going to get picked on and he has a hughe space to fill to live up to the potintial of his name, but do you love him? So what's the gruff? He's your child and your choice, at eightteen if he wants to change it he will if he thinks it defines him and fits him completely he won't but don't get so worked up over such a small thing as this. Use the energy that you spent on these names for something more usefull, like how the next time someone critisis the names your going to turn it to a complement, "Yes we know his name is unusual but isn't it pretty? We love the way it roles off of our tongue." GL!

    The names you pick only matter to you and your significant other! Also your looking at famos childrens names, as if their parents dont get enough attention, here is one other way! The crazier the name the more he/she is talked about! Just ,my opinion!! I think your names are unique, not quite my style but lovely none the less! The funny thing is to me how could somone name there child Henry, or William, Holly or Meghan! I guess it's just a prefrence, and everyone has an opinion!!

    You must have spent lots of time researching this. Maybe you can put that energy you spent typing up this whole thing doing something else? And if others don't like the names you've chosen, just tell them gently that it's your children and you like their names.

    Some of these celebrity baby names aren't that weird. Francesca, Amber Rose, Hazel Patricia are certainly legitimate names. Even Tallulah is a legitimate name - It's Irish/Celtic. And I happen to love the name Zephyr (and I'm a classic namer).

    I suppose for the same reason everybody has freedom of naming their children by whatever name they want...some are weird.. but it's best to give a child a middle name .. so if it really doesn't like the birth name.. it can go by his or her middle name which should be a bit more fitting in with names that people know how to pronounce and spell..

    Good luck

    Because these people are all famous and most of them are on drugs.


    Also - Just want to point out - Some of these names are not all that odd...Francesca Eastwood for instance....FRANCESCA is a Spanish name and it is a very old name. (pronounced Fran CHESS ca!!) And some of them...while I agree the middle names are odd...the first names aren't. Most people only go by their first names. And in the case of Cashel Day-Lewis...Daniel Day-Lewis is from Scotland. Cashel is a common name there.

    It must have taken you a very long time to type all those names. Some of them I liked a lot others I feel sorry for the child. Just like I feel sorry for your future children on the names you have chosen for them. Their father will have a say in the matter maybe he will have some better names for his children.

    How would you like to go through life with a name no one could pronounce much less spell. I don't think you child will like it either. I think it will be hard for him to get a job since the boss wouldn't know how to pronounce his name.

    Please remember that your child will have to live with the

    name you give him/her. Don't get too exotic or they'll be

    creating their own nickname,and the one you spent so much

    time choosing will be nothing more than an unused form

    of identification on official documents. In other words,it doesn't hurt to be a little conventional in this area. It may spare them years of torment on the playground. Kids can be


    As for the celebrities you list,they don't even live on the same planet as the rest of us. They're all a little odd,I think.

    Their choice. Some are definitely strange, but Carys (Catherine Zeta Jones' kid) is a traditional Welsh name.
