    You'd struggle in my family! Lots of last names as names...

    Myl.es (my son, Mil.es was my nannas last name)
    Law.son (nephew)
    Fletch.er (nephew)
    Coo.per (nephew)

    But this trend is nothing new, for example, Scott is a last name aswell as a first name... Also it has 2 tt's at the end which is unnecessary but its just how it's spelt... People have been doing this for a long time...

    I do have a niece called De.stiny... Not my cup of tea, but it really does suit her 😃

    See now this would be totally normal in Scandinavia. I know a Pehr Pehrson and a Bengt Bengtsson and a Sven Svensson.

    There are plenty of made up names and spellings that I don't like, but when someone says they don't like a spelling just because it is international and not "typically Australian" I think they are just ignorant. Take a more worldly view on names. Not every kid is going to grow up, marry, and die in Woop Woop.
