I think adults are more judge mental than kids really. I have heard of kids with pretty strange names and if they had had them when i was little we probably would of made fun because they were so different, but now different is common. when i went to school most names were just your popular mainstream names, but now what is popular is choosing something unconventional and with all of the unconventional names out there right now, I believe that kids do not tease it as much. I know kids with the following names that are somewhat unique or at least aren't top 100 names and they don't get teased.
Damien- It's a popular name but was the name of the anti christ in the omen and no one seems to mind...
Vivian- Was julia roberts name when she played a hooker in pretty woman
Cyrus- There's a character named "cyrus the virus" who was a killer in con-air.
Delilah- a famous biblical bad girl
I also know kids named: Ireland, Maverick, Rumer, Starlett, Hays, Kadem and Channing. None of these kids get teased for their names.
What do you think are adults more harsh?
