I've heard it lots of times that people name their children wanting them to be unique and stand out. That 'normal' names are too plain or whatever. But I don't get it. All these unique names all sound the same to me like Brayden, Kaden, Jayden, and 'unique' spellings with extra letters just annoy me, they look horrible.
As someone with a 'unique' surname that I have to spell out every single time I talk to someone over the phone or in any official capacity I really think it's cruel to do that to children on purpose.
Just my 2c.
