How do you feel unique baby names?

Here's a few different views on the subject- what are yours??

  • hopkinspatch.com: However, it doesn’t bother me in the least when I hear a new unique name for a baby, such as Blue Ivy. In fact, I think it usually shows the parents had some in-depth thought into the name rather than blindly picking out of a baby name book.  I think a baby name can have some impact on a child—but the parenting environment the child is raised in is the bigger concern for me.
  • sheknows.com: Names like Rian (instead of Ryan) or Aeryn (instead of Erin) look cool on paper. However, in real life your child will have to get used to spelling or pronouncing their name for friends, teachers and employers. These non-traditional spellings could work for your child, but they could also work against them if they become self-conscious about always having to pronounce or spell their name.

 i think its fine, because even a normal name some times has to be pronunaced for people, my name is jacquline, said phenically, and people try to put weird twist on it, i honestly dont care how my name is said and i plan to raise my children the same way, my first boy is going to be john patrick my first girl karen tegan.

We are more traditional with the first name at least. I don't like the crazy spellings.  It just looks like the parents were uneducated and could not spell correctly.  I also do not like names that are spelled and not phonetically correct.  You have to at least follow proper grammar rules.  I also think down the line with college, jobs, etc.  

My first son is Connor Ryan

This baby will either be Norah or Milo.

I like unique names, personally.  My DD's name is Sage and my DS's name is Rhys.  Pretty uncommon, but not made-up.
