    Default Horrible baby names

    Same, I often like unusual names, traditional names are often too common or 'boring' for my liking. I just don't get people who name their children something that no one will EVER get right (like the C(VIII)Lin [Caitlin] example I posted earlier in the thread).

    I like Van, it always makes me think of Van Wilder but in the movie that was short for Vance.
    I will admit I didn't notice that Dale & Sophie named their son Van Vine until mentioned here. That is unfortunate.

    With all these 'you'nique names floating around, im really interested in seeing my sons classmates names when he goes to school! Im very traditional I guess. When my son was born all the ladies In the SCU commented on how they hadnt seen a child with his name in a while

    A friend of mine is a teacher and it's amazing how names change between different areas. She used to work in a low socioeconomic area and saw lots of "yooneek" spelling. Now she works in a private school in a leafy green suburb and she said the children there have almost comically traditional names like the parents are trying to outdo each other on just how traditional they can be!

    I did the school tour at Guildford Grammar and it certainly held true there. I couldn't resist checking out the list of names for each class and I can't remember exactly but there might've been only one or two names that I thought were "odd".

    I kind of thing some of the lower socio-economic areas see naming a child as their chance to be extravagant, something they can't do in many other areas of their lives.

    Met a girl called Peah.. like Leah with a P.. didn't ask about spelling. Can only assume there's a random I and a silent j in there somewhere.

    I'm in a young mums group on Facebook and the 'what should I name my baby, the baby daddy and I can't agree on a name' always end up amusing!
    Just in the last few days these were suggested for a girl
    Porshalee
    Falicia (kinda reminds me of fellatio lol)
    Lohgann
    Shanesesia

    And for a boy
    Kysn
    Andariel
