This is so frustrating!!! I had my daughter 3 years before Jolie and Pitt had theirs. I named her Shiloh Emilia.

Now whenever I say my daughter's name is Shiloh people say "Jolie-Pitt!!!!"

I find this soooo frustrating because my daughter is 6 years old! I didn't name her Shiloh after their daughter. And what's short for Shiloh? I can't come up with anything good. Plus, I like her name!

  • Shiloh: He Whose It Is; He to Whom It Belongs. In pronouncing a blessing upon Judah, the dying patriarch Jacob said: “The scepter will not turn aside from Judah, neither the commander’s staff from between his feet, until Shiloh comes; and to him the obedience of the peoples will belong
    - Genesis 49:10

    Beautiful name! Maybe Shi, Lo, or Lowie for short. Not good picking nicknames.

  • I don't think of that when I hear the name .. Shiloh was first a book and then a movie about an abused beagle.

  • Yes, brush it off with humor. Tell them that you were the one being copied.

  • Try having your last name made fun of since you were in 1st grade cuz it sounds like a body part? After a few decades of it, you roll it off after the 100,000th idiot who thinks they are cleverly making the comment/joke for the 1st time.

  • I agree with Zoeyis. My name is Leslie Ann Ledbetter.....My name can be changed to Lesbian Bedwetter. Lovely.
