    I kinda like the name Victoria, but don't think I'd actually name my child that.

    As for teasing, kids can make something out of nothing.

    Yes. All except Darwin - because I don't like it as a name and I live here!

    If I lived in said name I would probably reconsider. I think that would be the only time a kid would get teased, lives h. Adelaide - and is called Adelaide.

    Victoria I don't think would ever get teased purely on name. Kids can be cruel tho! They'll find anything!

    I don't like the names except for Victoria a little bit. It's the least statey sounding name

    No. I wouldn't call my child Paris, Asia or Dakota either.
    Not that I think there's anything wrong with them, they're just not to my taste.

    I used Darwin as a middle name for my DS2, after Charles Darwin (which Darwin in NT is named after).

    I would probably use the others if I liked them enough, unless I lived in the location of the name. I actually really like Adelaide as a name.

    I like Adelaide as a name but I guess if I was living there I wouldnt use it. I dont think any of those names aren't bad just not my taste
