DP wants Ajax as a boys middle name...but the cleaner is making it difficult
I like names that are easy to pronounce when read, even if they're made up e.g. I might use a name like Danara (this may not be made up, but I can't be bothered googling to find out!)... but I wouldn't use something like uymi if it's supposed to be pronounced Amy... if it was supposed to be pronounced oomi though, then I might use it (again, this name could be real, so hope I don't offend anyone unintentionally!)
Since there are so many different spellings of common names out there now, even people with common names with correct spelling end up having to spell them out.
Personally, I like old real names that are not commonly used at the time. My name is like that & I've only ever met 2 others in my life (I met someone recently who wants to call their DD my name). But my name is not unheard of & relatively easy to spell.
But... maybe some made up names are okay? It is widely considered that J.M. Barrie made up the name Wendy (for a girl anyway) & it became widely used.
Let's hope the same doesn't happen with Renesmee!

My youngest sons name is also the name of a popular American tv show about a serial killer... (don't like saying my kids names on here but it's pretty obvious if you have heard of the show)
It's actually not an unusual name, just not overly popular in Australia... yet I have been told that it's disgraceful I named my son after a serial killer. .. to which my response is No, I heard the name on a fictional show about a serial killer and I liked it... I see no problem at all.

My brother is Bailey. He wasn't name for the alcohol. I think it's a lovely name.
