    I don't think there is anything wrong, unsuitable or offensive with it, to me the name represents freedom and sacrifice of many others for the right to live in peace.

    Actually I believe acronyms are not meant to be allowed. Otherwise people would name kids things like VIP, LOL, etc.

    Chose indifferent. Don't loathe it, but think it might be a tad disrespectful to take something so serious and make it belong to a cutesy baby. It's not something that should be given willy-nilly to a child. The word should command respect, not be tossed around as, "Hey Anzac, go clean your room!"

    Not a huge fan of it to be honest... But does anyone have a good Anzac biscuit recipe I'm so craving them now!

    Disrespectful? Really?

    My kids great-grandfathers were both Captain in WWII, they have named their kids after battles and locations that were significant to them and their kids have used their names and now their kids, kids, kids, kids bear these names.

    Is that disrespectful too?

    TBH, I think it's a bit different if someone chooses something that's personally significant to them to name their kid after, and just choosing a broad thing which may, or may not, be directly linked to them. If a digger wanted to name his kid "Anzac," it might make sense. Otherwise it just comes across as disrespectful IMO.

    I also find it disrespectful. I think it should not have been allowed by bd&m.

    yeah, definitely no.

    It reminds me of a person I used to know who named her dog Lakota ... 'after the trail'. I know, right?
