    RAKE

    Wtf??
    Oh no! Rake in itself is a bit questionable for my taste let alone having youneek spelling!

    The name I'm considering for Belly Bub would make both my children's names come from one TV show. I was worried about it but I suddenly am not less and less, with all these youneek names floating around my kids names will be too boring to notice I think!

    Looks like it should be pronounced Rick or Reek!

    Truly an awful choice.

    Sunrise did a live cross to the weather forecast segment & when asking a father during an interview what his toddler son's name was, he replied "Ernest"

    WHY would any parent name their child such a hideous old fashioned name??

    I can understand family tradition/tribute...but use it as a middle name FFS's!!!

    No doubt with kids being what they are, that poor child is bound to cop shiz about it his whole childhood & no doubt beyond!!

    Beauty in the eye of the beholder and all that.

    I believe Ernest is making a comeback, along with a lot of little old man and old lady names. I think it has an adorable quality, especially the nickname Ernie

    I just hope they didn't have another son called Bertram, because then they would have had Bert and Ernie.

    There was a gorgeous little Ernest in the NICU with my youngest.
    I think it's sweet!

    Why? Because we like the name. We have 3 boys and all are named after family because that is important to us. Our youngest is Ernie and I have only had 1 negative comment.
