    I used to have a child at work named Calais - Bogan family, Bogan name.

    Poor kids siblings had pretty standard common names.

    I think it's considered a bogan name BECAUSE it's a city in France. Even if the family have any kind of connection to it (doubtful), it's still somehow pretentious and OTT.

    Unusual names aren't cruel unless the parents were doing it to be deliberately mean, but names like Phalicity sure are unintentionally unfortunate.
    Glad it wasn't just me who went there!
