I beg to differ. I loved that cartoon. But off topic.

Still unacceptable to name a kid after a cartoon monster.

It sounds like a name for some unpleasant medical condition.

Mary, Jane, Alice, Sara, Susan, Tina, Barbara. Lots of perfectly good names out there. Everyone knows the names, no need to spell it every time. Why mess with something that works?

Why don't you cut the middleman and just name her "Unemployed" or "NoJobba".

It's your kid, but I don't know why people do that the their children.

I suppose it's better than the 10 "Hunters" in every classroom that will never hunt anything but bargains.

Yep, it looks like it rhymes with the "v" word. If it doesn't, it will get mispronounced that way anyway. I don't find it pretty, just difficult to pronounce and remember. I do like Lena or Lina, pronounced to rhyme with Tina. I think naming a kid a name that's going to be mispronounced all the time, or that draws ridicule, is a cruel thing for a parent to do.

Everyone seems to name their boys either that or some variation of "Aiden" these days..
