Hipster trend? Using family surnames as first names has been around since Virginia was a colony.

I did a search on this thread to see if either of my children's names appeared in it. I was amused to find my daughter's name in the list above. When we were expecting her and settled on the name, we realized that a few Bible thumpers might have issues with it. We are not religious and didn't have any reservations with the name and our happy with the choice. I can't imagine our daughter as anyone else.

You know, you really have an issue about religion and religious people. Did anyone ever say your daughter's name was blasphemous?

I don't, it was a bad attempt at humor. And no, no one has said that out loud.

And you wouldn't know if they'd thought it (I'll put your mind at rest - I doubt anyone has thought it).
