    I just saw a missing children post on FB from NZ. The boys names were Jaedun and Kaedun. Now I think that's just a mockery of the kiwi accent.

    Disclaimer:I'm a kiwi.

    The only time I have ever thought a name was in poor form/taste, was when the out and proud couple from S.A who were a Father and daughter in an incestuous relationship named their daughter 'Celeste'.

    In isolation Celeste is a lovely french name, but not when your name so closely sounds like incest.
    Are they still together ? Uck.

    Well all 3 of my kids have Irish/Gaelic names

    I don't think unusual names are cruel, but I think some can be a bit awful!

    I love it kw!

    My middle name is a 'made up' name from part of my grans name and my nannas name. After 25 years mum found out it is a popular Irish name only spelt different. She thought she was being unique

    Eta-had to go get the correct spelling, Aibhlinn

    I taught a kid whose name (I kid you not) was 'Truly-Scrumpous'!

    Not sure it's cruel, but it's certainly bordering on it.

    We had a Nykoal come into work one day and as I was writing down her name to pass on a msg I was berated for spelling it the traditional way.
