    Oh the poor thing that's so funny.

    I've met two crystals and I really wouldn't be surprised if their parents were druggies, those two girls definitely were.
    Maybe names just really are descriptive of who the baby will be

    I taught a boy whose surname was King... All good until his dad came in and said "Hi, I'm Wayne King, X's dad"... Awkward.

    They're all in their late twenties now lol but myth is a raver, she's a bit out there to say the least, wouldn't surprise me if her parents were too!

    I actually thought that was kind of a cute/cool name. Still do. Wouldn't use it as an Australian, but it still sounds kinda cute.
    Take off the 'A' and you have my sons name :-)

    SUCH a popular name now. At work we have 4 Jax's (Jaxon/Jackson) all roughly the same age.

    Yep, Jax is really common. Probably doesn't help with Sons of Anarchy being around as well.

    I didn't know Ajax was a proper name... still, it's unusual, even if it has traditional origins.

    TBH, I think giving your kid a deliberately mis-spelt name is worse than giving them a name that is spelt properly, but is unusual. Jamie Oliver-style names being an exception, of course. lol.

    on the topic of Ajax. I wanted Harper for DS. DH wouldn't have a bar of it, he said it sounded like 'Harpic' the toilet cleaner :-s
