    Default Are unusual names cruel?

    Omg that's the same for me. First name last name and I get semi yelled at when people ask my surname I tell them and then they saySURNAME! Augh need a good come back. And assuming they know how to spell it when I start spelling it but the last bit isn't so common so hah!
    Unlike your dh it really annoys me..

    Yuck.
    I have to say I think they're great names... I have a Daisy Pamela. If you are using just first names, Poppy, Honey, Daisy & Buddy are not strange at all I don't think.

    Default Are unusual names cruel?

    I've known a man named Innocent, ladies named Precious and Magical, but more recently I knew a woman who named her baby Diva Rose. Each to their own I say, but some names a bit too risky for me (imagine if Diva lived up to her name as she grows up!)

    Also found this article interesting on names-

    Ahahaha oh you all should hear my surname.
    And if my mum had her way, my surnames (hyphenated hers and my dads) would be even more ridiculous. Especially when you initial my first name then have my last name/s

    Just goes to show that surname's can be just as difficult, and we don't usually get a choice in those!
    I guess it goes both ways haha! It doesn't phase my husband either but I reckon it'd annoy me after a while. No one ever gets my married name right either so I always spell it straight after I say it!

    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.

    Sent from my GT-I9305T using BubHub
    I've watched this series and STILL I love love love this name. Hoping to get a chance to use it one day

    I instantly thought of crystal meth when I saw those names together. OMG!!!!

    I went to school with a Paul McCartney, there's a Wayne Carr up the road and my Year 1 teacher's name was Miss Crapp.

    I love hilarious names!

    Maybe BDM rejected 'Meth'. It sounds like their mum had plenty of it!
