designer baby names?
Someone posted the other day asking what our opinion was about what she wanted to name her child. The majority of the answers were "no way" and one person answered "what is wrong with naming your child something different...blah...blah...blah...I named my child this and that...blah...blah...blah"
The thing is, I think you should name your child for them, not for you. When I named my kids, I would through every spectrum of what they could be called or teased about with their names and THAT was my deciding factor because if not, believe me...I would have loved to have named my daughter "Moonbeam" or "Starfire" and my son "Titan" or something out there but I didn't because ultimately, it was them that were going to have to live with whatever stupid decision I made. What do you think?

Seems like anything you name your child, there will someone who comes up with a cruel nickname if they want to. Like I named my second daughter Avalon and went through everything thinking about how someone could make fun of it and beyond the 'you're named after car' thing, I could think of nothing. Don't you know, this year, in 5th grade, some ingenious, smart-ass kid came up with the nick name 'Babble-on', which fits because she does love to talk a lot, and now people are calling her that and she's upset.
