Guess I just grew up in a very open and multicultural setting.
I hear a name I'm not familiar with and I don't think more or less of it. In fact one of my favourite names is my friends sister. I asked where it came from and I think she saw my jaw drop when she told me their parents made it up. It didn't even occur to me that it could be the case.
I do take exception to odd spelling for the sake of odd spelling. In saying that, the 'odd' spelling can often be cultural, but just not known here in Australia.
