    Also, the boy should be called 'Justin' and not pronounced "just-eye-en", and she hates that people assume he's a she.
    Isn't "enne" the feminine suffix

    But Xavier vs eXavier/ ex-zavier to me is more like Double pronouncing the X.. I would spell eXavier/ex-zavier XXavier.. As is one X like X-ray & one like Xylophone. And belive me My Aunt wasn't too happy when I Put that on my Cousin's present.. I did tell her if she pronounced it how it was spelt I would have put that on there, but I had only heard her say the "Ex-Zavier" pronunciation.

    Pronouncing Lisbeth as Elizabeth is Never gonna happen without an E, and an A and if she was E-liza-beth not E-lisa-beth she needs an Z too. But I can be pedantic on pronounciation

    As for Strange Names.. MINE.. I personally haven't put it on Bub Hub, but if you search it is is there. It now means I Know of one other person in the country with the first name. I also stopped using it except for legal stuff almost 15 years ago.

    Yeah fair enough, I try to steer clear of confusing words especially names. Some people definitely blow my mind though when it comes to what they name their kids!

    HAHAHAHAHA!

    What an idiot.

    How about if you give your kid ridiculous mis-spelt names, you accept that people aren't going to know wtf you expect of them.

    Considering neither utilises the English language correctly, I don't know why she thinks everyone should just understand. Jeez.

    Lisbeth is Liz-beth. Whatever her boy's name is... is some frankenstein's monster of a name, and she should be thankful people bother trying to pronounce it at all. lol.

    I've seen loads in my job

    The one that sticks in my mind was a few years ago. I admitted twin girls to the nursery. One was called Jessica the other I asked dad what her name was so I could write out her cot card.., pheobe he says, beautiful name no worries, out of habit ask if they're spelling the traditional way

    No, he says were going to spell it differently
    My heart sinks

    Fibi...,, that poor child


    Bfp!!! Little bug due 25/6/12

    Poor kids! Lisbeth is at least a real name (I learned that from Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) but her name wasn't pronounced Elizabeth! Justennye (or however it was written) is just silly...

    I'm guessing the second mum must have been a Cold Chisel fan...
