what is your honest opinion of the name Tank?

A friend had a baby boy, named him Tank. It's her baby, her choice, so my mouth will stay shut. I just have to ask though, does anyone else besides me think that is a really really awful name? The baby is so cute, I can't get the thought out of my head why Tank? Ugh, but like I said it's her baby so it doesn't matter what I think. She has a history of giving her kids VERY unusual names, you should hear some of the other ones! I guess I don't get why people would like names like that, but whatever.

  • I would understand Tank, as a nickname, but I'd never name my baby anything like that. However, to each his/her reach.

  • I agree with you, Tank is a pretty bad name. He better grow up to be a mountain of a man to fill the shoes of that big name.

  • Sounds like the name of a WWE otherwise, it's not THAT awful. I've heard worse.
