    I don't think it matters one iota what people call their kids..

    It matters what we teach our kids about names!!!!!!!!! that they are free range, dont always follow the "correct" spelling and are a parents gift to a child.. wanted or NOT! and many unusual and usual names are hated by the gift receiver!!!!!

    You can wrap someone elses name choice up as a crappy present but that's your gift to YOUR child.. Intolerance and bullying are the pay offs they might display..

    I'd sure as heck prefer my child be called leanaliticalcrudliness than pick on someone for begin called that.. and if you think your kids are not savvy enough to pick up on your underlying ideals then think again..

    I'm a student midwife and very often new parents name their child after the midwife! (especially alot of immigrants from countries with poorer health care and they come to NZ and get great midwifery care so are so grateful). But.... There was one family who spoke little English and migrated from a pacific island just before they had their daughter. They were so happy with the care they got that they named their daughter after the midwife.... But.... As language was a barrier they thought her name was MIDWIFE!!! So there is a little girl in NZ called midwife lol

    Me either, I think Gaelic names are beautiful.

    My favourites are Niamh ("Neeve"), Orlaith ("Orla") and Saoirse ("Seersha").
