    Reminds me of the song by Foo Fighters. I thought it was a place name? As for a baby name, it doesn't strike me but that's just my opinion.

    If you like go for it. I probably prefer the Foo Fighters spelling though.

    Its sounds nice enough. I work in a hospital and it's always 'interesting' to see unusual names. Yes it's nice to have a unique name but very careful with how far you go. Best one so far is L-a, pronounced La-dash-a. Also, names are meant to have a meaning, I'm always asked what my middle name (Eveleen- proun. Ev-leen) means and my answer is "I got Eve from my gran EVElyn and Leen from my nanna KathLEEN" Although, there is an Irish name Aibhlinn that is pronounced the same although my parents did not know this when they 'made up' the name.

    Well, it's pronounced like its written, and it doesn't have any bizarre randomness silent letters in it, so it doesn't bother me. It's not the made up factor of names that makes me irate, it's the spelling. If you has spelt it Allahndreahr then I might have died a little inside.

    If the name is made up, it really can't be spelled incorrectly Just sayin'....

    Not a huge fan of made up/far out names... So I won't choose/create one. What others do is their business

    If names were never made up, we would all be nameless... How boring!

    I think there is enough names to choose from in existence already pp, what a silly thing to say. The spelling is fine and I can work out how to pronounce it by looking at it so you get bonus points for that, but I personally don't like it.
