My brother works in child care, and there was a kid called Boston the other day.

Boston.

Boston.

I'm sure some parents just want their children to be beaten to death in the playground or to spend a lifetime lying on a therapists lounge!

I have a female friend named Kevin--her mother named her after an uncle who had died. Her middle name is Joy, but she goes by Kevin. Talk about confusion everywhere!

And then there's the old guy who lived across the street from my ex-husband's parents--the old guy's name was Harry Peters. I mean, really . . . .

The mama bird in Up was named Kevin.

I'm with the group taht can't stand kids named after proper nouns, i.e., Brooklyn, Boston, etc. Or girls with surnames for their first name. You know there's at least one Muse fan out there who named their daughter Bellamy.

omg yes. i've encountered so many little girls with names like that, named taylor (yeah i know that one's common as a first and last name but it's all i can think of so go with me on it, guys) or something. not to mention how many little girls in the south are named adelaide despite their parents probably couldn't name what country it's in, let alone finding it on a map. it should be a requirement if you're going to name your kid after a city: find it on a map.

and yeah, i'm not a fan of people who name their kids after famous people (sorry anyone who has). when it's a common name like john that's fine. but like your bellamy example is...yeah i don't like those kinds.

I think there might be a Muse fan on this site considering naming their daughter Bellamy.

An extra because a name like that would never occur to me.

Then there's all the cutsie names that drive me bonkers. Mackenzie, Mykayla, Skylar, which are just trendy now. Ugh. Don't parents understand that their adorable tots are going to grow up one day and need big-people names? I saw an example just the other day. A woman named Sparrow. Why?
Hey now! :-P

I like a lot of boys names, but there are few girls names I like. All I can consider is the names and spelling 'Rayleigh Anne' for a little girl but probably in a few years it a long lost thought. I tend to like names that are named after a place like Cheyenne and Raleigh, or the spelling Cheyanne, but that name is intriguingly ugly.
