Okay, opinions are in but can i still use the name Malaki?

I mean, i think its an awsome name... my hubby and i dont agree too often and its a biblical name. Can't I just say screw children of the corn? Lots of people have names that were used in dumb movies...... what do u think?

  • If you love it, then use it! We didn't know 'Gage' was the name of the 2 yr old undead killer in Stephen King's Pet Sematary when we chose it. Even though *I* think Children of the Corn when I hear it doesn't mean you shouldn't name your child Malachi :)
