  • I think the Z and X together like that are totally unnecessary and it looks rather odd. But, it's your child and if your ready to face the strange looks and smart remarks- then so be it. I named my oldest daughter Schylar and people in my family flipped out because I didn't spell it SKYlar. People mispronounce her name constantly and I do get sick of telling people how to say it (I mean do you say Shool? So stop saying Shylar! It's School and so it's Schylar- SAME damn thing!).

  • not at all. it is just a style~own it girl. I have an Olliegeorge know one gets..what other people think is none of your business is my thinking...if he doesn't dig it, he can change his first or middle name anytime without having to go to court (at least pre 9/11 days anyway).

  • no. jmes was spelt like that in the baby book i was looking at. I wanted it to be different. I recently asked a question about his name on yahoo answers and the comments people left were heart breaking. They did so much as to call me a troll.

  • Xzandyr looks kind of like you were really trying to spell it crazy, poor kid will always have to spell it for people. That being said, you're the parents what you want is what you get. If your child is already born and people are saying stuff shame on them. If the baby isn't born, then hopefully they will stop when he's born.

  • Honestly the kid will be teased. People won't be able to pronounce his name. It will look bad on job interviews when he gets older and people will question your intelligence or sanity. I really hope this is a joke because if it's not and you really name him that then I feel sorry for your child. Not trying to be mean just calling it like i see it.

    The name is fine but not with that spelling.
