imagine a baby called david?
thanks to Mr Beckham.
Names just go in and out of fashion. A lot of currently popular names are ones that would be regarded as really old-fashioned a few years ago etc etc etcdjsxcvmzx,mcnzx;cvj
reenee is particularly bad, irene, hermione, persephone, penelope, godrick, Fred blah buh blah blah blah. All names are odd until the person grows a bit and takes on the character of the name.
are both names that have made a comeback in recent year babyname fans.
has small children
Those old Greeks. I know someone called Godfrey.
i dont think anyone can beat that
I quite like the Hartbeat - Royal Tenebaums connotations.
brand names like dior and drink names Chardonnay urghhhhhh. Also how arrogant to call your kid JESUS?!
loads of peopl in spain are called jesus.
That's not something i could imagine people wanting to choose for their kids' name.
common name in certain parts of the world.
but it's due to that country's religious culture i.e south america and spain. Why choose Jesus.
as Mary is in the UK.
it's not arrogance.
so childlike for a 26 year old, thought you were five.
but couldn't imagine anyone calling their child that, that's not being ignorant. It's an opinion something this site has lacked for a while because people would rather read about dumbass' dripping eg down their shirts. Now we can all move on.
dont worry so much
called Angel and Jesus.
they're common names in Spain. meh.
lots of muslims are called mohammed i guess.
although apparently a lot of muslim kids have their names chosen by the mosque, not by their parents.
"Who is it?"
I like it
someone called Edwin.
It's crap :(
Barry is reserved solely for 30-something builders. Surely babies can't be called Barry?
Is Barry the most lowbrow name ever? What is it even short for? Barold? Benry?
but it'd be pretty cool if there were more people in the world called that.
i want to live in a belle and sebastian song.
can you imagine a really REALLY old lady called holly? or jenny? or molly? or annabel? or chanelle?
but yeah, names that don't work on babies:
leave my mum alone.
(even though i said it first.)
rubbish when I am like 70
are called 'John'. I can't imagine a baby called John.
I work with a woman called Cherry.
I was gonna be called Icarus before my dad stopped taking drugs.
I can't imagine a baby called that.
Names I can't imagine a baby being called:
so i is gladys, that's my nans name
but I was talking to someone yesterday whose brother is called Forest, which I can't get my head around any age of person being called.
This case is particularly unfortunate because his second name is Sherwood.
Only in America...
Wait for it...
calling a baby Boniface VII.
to the top of this thread, there was the mention of the name 'Mohammed', and it got me thinking.
If it is a mortal offence to Islam for the prophet Mohammed to be depicted in any kind of physical form, why is it ok to name yourself after him? The logic would surely make this hugely disrespectful?
that thing Danny Wallace did on ITV where we started a national campaign to get someone to call their kid Barry? It was about a year or two ago, I think as part of some terrible show hosted by Davina McCall about parenting. It was totally lost on the audience, it was live, or at least filmed live, and they just didn't understand why it was funny. Idiots!
or maybe this was a dream during my heavy drinking period a couple of years back.
Worst name ever
Graeme on the other hand...
not a name for a baby to have.
i went to school with someone who named their firstborn after pop sensation destiny's child. not any of the members, but actaully a baby called destiny.
I seriously considered going home after
killing them and agreeing with all the
"middle class tea party" sentiments...
