  • People name their kids stranger things for stranger reasons, so I don't see the problem.

  • Not my personal favorite for a name but it's most definitely not the worst I've heard.

    I'm gonna bet that hubby shoots it down. LOL

  • I was going to say, at least Barack is a name that isn't completely unheard of. I was surprised it was criticized as such a "black" name or whatever they were saying when the only other person I know with the name is a 67 year old white psychologist I used to work with. He spelled it Barrak though.

  • whatever floats your boat but i think it would be cruel cause there will be those who don't support it and your leaving it open for your kid to get shit over it. if you don't want a happy kid go for it.

  • Its not tacky, but everyone will know who you named your baby after. Not really original. See what he says and then let us all know
