What do you think about calling a white baby boy "Bentley"?

I only mention that he will be white because I have been told it is more suited to a black baby boy....?

  • Don't think it matters. I like it even though it is the name of a car. I think it is cute..

  • I didn't like it when one of the moms on 16 and pregnant named her son that. It's a car. I have a BIL named Ferrari so it could be worse, but that doesn't make it better.

  • I personally don't care for it, but since it is in no way an ethnic name, use it. (IMO it makes me think British, not black)

  • Oh blah. Ethnicity shouldn't even be in question. You name that baby whatever FEELS right. People that don't like, don't have to.

    BTW it is a Very nice name!! :)

  • I think it is adourable. I don't think the name even sounds "Race- specific." Its your child name him what you want. It makes me think of a little boy i saw on Sixteen and pregnant :)
