Tinkerbell is cruel yes! Maybe a famous person can pull it off cause they all have weird *** names and need to stand out from each other, but I'd feel cruel giving my kids thos sorts of names. I couldn't even call them by those names I'd feel silly saying it.
"Tinkerbell come here please" Tink Tinky Bell..... ?????? it's like calling a pet.
I'll admit I did question myself on the name after that... But to DH and I it wasn't related to the subject in the thread and when we finally announced her name at her birth no one said a thing, and not a single person has and more people then not asked if we got her name from a Batman character, which she was. And we have had so many comments on how pretty it is
She can change it to the shortened version if she likes I like them both!
Yes some can be very cruel. Why would you do that to your child?
I've never understood when people want to use these crazy unusual names?
Lol what about nicholas cage naming his son Kal-El, as in superman's Name on his home planet. Could he not have just stuck to clark?
I do think it's cruel in some ways. Especially the silly spellings. There are common alternatives like Elisabeth which is german, or Izobel which is spanish instead of Isobel.
I believe in some cases that parents place the to need to look trendy/original above their children who will face a lifetime of ridicule. Yes I know kids will tease over lots of things, but why deliberately make it worse for them? There is teaching resiliance which is important, and just being selfish imo.
Caleb is a beautiful name, thousands of years old. Why spell it Kahlyb? It still phonetically sounds the same, so it isn't original. Simply put that child is going to be spelling their name for the rest of their life bc their parents want to look sophisticated and cool (and failed miserably might I add). You aren't naming an animal you are naming a child, save the silly names for your guinea pig
