  • bristol palin,i could never do that not bc she is a teen mom bc i am also but bc shes not a great person to name your child after niether is her mother,Jo is okay if put with the right first name it is really cute remind him that his DD will always be associated with a race and a the "spokes person for teen moms" (ha what a joke-sorry jmo.)

  • I LIKE the name Bristol. It is different without being too out there.
    Oh, and Anon? I'm a Democrat. Political affiliation has absolutely nothing to do with this. Grow up.

  • I think it's okay, but I think there are going to be tons of Bristols in the next few years because of Bristol Palin, so it will be very common.

  • Nope don't like it, because the child will definitly be teased, remind him she has to live with the name not him.

  • I don't like it & why Jo??? That is an abbreviation of Joanne. I would use a whole middle name no an abbreviation.

  • I think it's the 'jo' bit. I liked Bristol for my 2nd daughter but then was told it not only a race from Nascar, but then Sarah Palin got popular...and thus her daughter Bristol. Needless to say I didn't name my daughter Bristol. I DO think it's a pretty name tho (minus Jo) but, the association that goes along w/it...I just couldn't name my daughter that.

  • I'm not crazy about using a celebrity name, especially one who makes headlines.

    If you just call her Bristol, it doesn't matter what the middle name is. Using both names was a lot more common in the 50s, so Bristol Jo sounds outdated (like Peggy Sue or Bobbie Jo).
