    I often wonder if people think I misnamed my daughter. I have 3 boys and 1 girl, but my girls nickname is a boy name (Harriet - Harry) so if out in public and calling after them, I yell out 4 "boys names". Maybe it looks like I gave up thinking of girl names.

    Harriet/harry is a lovely name. If I heard you calling for Harry I would assume shes a Harriet

    Lol just saw a guy in a Holden ute with bumper stickers all over the back with a ciggie hanging out of his mouth. He had his arm hanging out the window and on his arm was tattooed "Dekota" 😂😂😂

    I know a child called Javier (pronounced Jay-vee-ar). The parents are actually well educated and even intelligent. It shocked me beyond belief when I heard how they pronounced their child's name. It's actually embarrassing!

    Are you serious 😧😒. Being from the southwestern states of America I would find that super annoying!

    We and Latin Americans would say 'havvi-air.' Slightly like PP said but no 'r' sound in the middle.

    I wanted to name our son Milo.
    Too many times - "No way, after a chocolate drink?" was the response.
    I caved. Called him a boring biblical name.

    Lately, I've come across boys called Brax. Yes, after the Home & Away character. Quietly, I'm like nooooooooooooo.....

    I just saw Zaviier. I'm assuming this was his parents take on Xavier.

    And Mareeq. I'm not sure if this one was a cultural name but I'm not a fan.
