    Have you seen the movie? It's the main characters name.

    On their own, each name might not be too bad. But the 4 of them together just looks totally ridonkulous.
    Well yes because they certainly can't call their next kid Sam. But I do quite like the names.

    I like it with a U too. It reminds me of the surfer, and he's rather nice lol

    redonkulous lol but I agree. I think if you get one unusual name you can get by, but when all your kids have way out names the parent just looks stupid

    Ajax is a legit name though, the cleaner just ruined the heritage..
    It's like my home towns name is a legit native Aboriginal name, but it's also a traditional Japanese name... And if I ever meet a Japanese girl named it I am going to feel so sorry for her as my hometown is horrendously bogan and feral.

    I think as much as the name Bailey and Midori are cool names, you just can't name your kid after alcohol If those alcohols weren't named that/weren't around then it'd be awesome lol. I did meet a boy named Jack Daniels before too

    I worked with a lady named Immaculate, people tended to call her conception to be funny. And this was in an adult setting not school.

    Dd1 has an unusual name but not unheard of or made up, so people thought dd2 would have a obscure name to "out do" ourselves but were surprised when her name again Isn't common for babies now but more so in the 80's but we chose there names because we love them.
