    Lotus is a fave lately. Not with Moon, I don't like that... but just Lotus. It seems so girly to me.

    Default Are unusual names cruel?

    If I had my way, I'd name my children after characters... Like Zuko or Hermione.. Or id give them really hippy names.
    But I am giving this child (if it's a boy ) a very acceptable and normal name, but not for fear of being thought cruel some parents can be cruel through how they dress their kids or making their sons do ballet

    I have always always always liked the name Hermione.

    It's been ruined though.

    So has Edward.

    seriously it wouldnt get through BD&M much more normal names like Duke get rejected
    I'm putting my hand up to say I've seen L-a!! She lives in Brisbane.

    Duke can't be a name as it's a title.

    # was overseas very recently.

    There's a huge difference between unusual names and outright ridiculous or spelling that makes you, the parent, look like an uneducated twit.

Her son also has a drug related name but I forget what it is. Just the thought makes my skin crawl
    I know someone who named their baby girl Sativa, doh!

    Not too sure, I just saw it on msn. Not exactly the most reliable source of information though. Either way, it's stupid!

    Default Re: Are unusual names cruel?

    Okay... these are not unusual names, but DH just suggested the names Timothy and Tamara for boy/girl twins... When calling them for dinner: "Tim Tam, time for dinner"! lol

    I told him I don't like them because his name starts with T

    Oh how I'd love boy/girl twins though
