Kid I was at school with must have had weird parents, his name was Frank Donnell.
He said that his mother wanted to name him Dominic, as he was born on a Sunday,
but his dad vetoed that, as to him Dominic Donnell sounded strange, then his dad
suggested Daniel, but the mother said no, (this is weird), she said people would call
him Danny O’Donnell, sounding Irish, and for whatever reason, she was anti Irish.

Shakesperean, actually. But yeah, talk about a random and nonsensical objection to a name. There is a whooooole lot worse out there.

Maybe save the ire for people who name their kid Messiah?

so... what about the hispanic name "jesus"... pronounced differently, but still....


that was literally a stretch on why jessica is a bad name.

Why do people do these creative spellings?

Both of my children (7 and 4) have names from older generation family members. No one would have though twice about their names at any point in the last two hundred years. It never crossed my mind to consider naming them Eminem and Khaleesi.

Humor:

I named my kids "girl" and "boy". It made things much easier.

I always wanted to have twin girls so I could name them Katherine and Kathleen. Then I could call both of them "Kathy".

"Kari McKeen. It's like Carrie only with a K instead of a C and an AH instead of an A and only one R and an I instead of an IE."

Truth:

One of my classmates in high school was named Jim Sox.

Shanda might be a pretty name, unless your last name is Lear.
