    Ah, the problem with assumption is you will often find a name is not weird or made-up...just not English. I think Pia is actually a pretty traditional name depending on the culture.

    what system/console is the Diablo on? dh has a playstation. he plays batman, last of us, skyrim and played that unchartered (free version). I guess he likes the role playing style games.

    I'm not a gamer at all lol

    eta: he used to be a died hard wow fan too. but he's hardly played that since he's known me, he hasn't really got the time anymore.
    The first Diablo was on the original PlayStat.ion, but is main ****** played on PC now. I know that D3 was ported to Xb.ox but I am a PC gamer so can't really tell you much more on that side haha.

    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) 😳
