    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.
    Thanks. This made me smile!

    In all honesty, I may not like a name, but once it's on a cute kid all is forgiven!
    My son has a surname as a first name, my daughter (belly bub) probably will too. I don't get the hate surrounding it.

    Quite a common naming style in parts of Africa actually.

    Haha jeez I thought my kids had 'normal' names but I didn't realise people hated the surname for a first name...2 of mine have that and the other has a VERY American name...

    I taught a kid called...... Sherriff.

    The first day I didn't have a roll and asked the kid to write down their name in a piece of paper so I could transfer it to the roll when I received it.

    I saw sheriff and his surname on the paper and was sure someone was having a go, but no.

    Other favourites have been zirconia and princess.

    There is a family that have 4 kids- Rescue C Hopper, Rascal, Cheeky and Rukus. The reason all their children have unusual names is so that they'll be unique when they are older and looking for jobs
