    Default Horrible baby names

    I totally associate invented names or bizarre spellings with bogans or people of low socio-economic status. I agree that it's done to make their child seem less ordinary.

    My husband is so traditional with names it's almost impossible. I like some traditional names but not others. Most of the names I like are very classic though.

    pia is fine, it's not exactly a common name but it's not bogan or "youneque"

    it's the spelling it of peah that threw me.

    I usually teach at a private school and it's true, most of the names are fairly traditional but when I've done relief at the local big 'diverse' state school some of them take some pronouncing... Not difficult to say but made me cringe a bit - yr 9 boy named 'Killa' pronounced "killer". 😕

    I was just at the shops and heard a woman yelling out to her daughter, her name was Halo (pronounced Haylo) 😳

    I love Van as well! It was on my short list for DS2 and DS3. Jethro and Wolf were also on those lists. Those in the know will understand

    DS1 and DS2 have correctly spelt, but unusual (but totally legit) names. Whilst DD and DS3 have more traditional names. We got the best of both worlds!

    Default Horrible baby names

    Fairly certain I read last week (before the Kimye name news came out) that Easton is actually an old name making a comeback, it was on the same list as Clementine, our DD's name. Just unfortunate that Kimya will ruin it by making it sound ridiculous.

    A friend gave their DS Van as a middle name, it's quite sweet. I know hubbers would probably be fine with DS' name as I know there are a few others that used it, which annoys me because I thought we were being classic but original. I wonder what everyone would think of our other boy and girl names...old fashioned but not regularly used. I'm always too scared to tell people on here!

    Eta: when I say Easton was on the same list, I meant the huffpost parents list, not ours! ☺️
