Does the trend of the "oh so cutesy" oddball spelling of names strike anyone else as ssort of selfish?
I am not out to bash or offend anyone, more like thinking outloud. It seems to me some people believe naming their child is all about them. I actually asked a friend recently "Don't you think he'll (the baby) spend a lot of time correcting people on the pronouniation and/or speeling of that name?" Her response was ""I don't care I want it to be unique". It just struck me as selfish not to consider the one who has to live with the name. I went to school with a girl named Sunrise, she hated it and was teased constantly. She changed it as soon as she turned 18. Her Mom was so upset. Selfish...or am I missing something?
