My husband wanted to name one of our girls Aubrey. I wanted to name a boy Tristan, but I ended up with 2 girls...

anyways... there were two teachers at my kids school who's names were Mrs. Seppi and Ms. Uri. The kids all thought it was pretty funny.

Most of the folk in our family have Irish names. My uncle has just had his sixth baby and he's looking for a name that someone doesn't already have - they never repeat names on either side of the family - and is Irish. They were sticking to Oonagh even though everyone wanted him to pick another name they have on their list. It was his 6 year old who changed their minds. He is opposed to it because "it rhymes with tuna"

One name I can't stand is Damien. I've never liked the way it sounds, and I can't meet a person named Damien and not think of The Omen *shudder*. I'd probably refuse to babysit a kid named Damien (or Lucifer).

If my missus gave birth to a bloke, i'd be hoping that she'd be liking the name Oliver...i reckon's it's cool. I'd love to call me kid Olly.

One name I cannot stand....Caleb. Looks like Cabbage and just sounds wrong.

oliver is the best name. our last was a girl instead, so she was olivia. pity it's so popular.

i love strange names for boys. i want angus for a boy, but we had a dog called angus, and that is sounding too strange already.

I'm known for my love of the name Vladimir, to the point that it was my nickname in grade eight.

I doubt I'll ever meet a woman who'd be happy for me to inflict Vladimir onto a son though. Not sure I'd be quite willing to do that either ... so I just named a fish Vladimir instead.

Do you really want your son to be forever referred to as Vlad the Impaler?

Might work if he gets into fencing or something..

Now that's what I think is one of the most important things for parents to think about when picking their kid's name. When you start school and learn to write, one of the first things you're asked to do is write your name. So how unfair is it on your child if everyone else in their class have names that are just 6 letters or less long while they're stuck with something that's about 15 letters or more long?!

I'd rather be referred to as Vlad the Impaler than André the Seal, which is what I got stuck with in primary school for a couple of years. Curse that movie!

I don't mind weird names if they sound nice and make sence!

I can't stand it when people also purposely match up names to their last names eg: Remington Steele or Opportunity Knox

I can't stand it when people register and spell their childs name phonetically so it can be easier for the kids to write their own name eg: Jesika, Jon, Moneek ( i saw this once on a form and i thought it was a clerical mistake.....having a "Monique" of my own....i thought this do-do does not know how to spell so i changed it....turns out that it was the childs name!)

Also hate it when people name their kids (middle or first names) after the places they conceived the child.....and a work colleague really did this......named her child (middle name) Antartica! (she said to me what else were you to do!) I laughed i thought to my self....yeah....Mine would be Monique "Got really drunk at a friends house on New Years Eve" !.....or Reece "On the sofa"

I still am a computer "spaz." As soon as someone starts talking to me abour processor systems or whatever I'm lost. I hate the bloody things....

Vladmir is a cool name, I've always thought Boris was pretty cool too.
