For some reason, I don't like anything that is unisex for a child. Like, Morgan, Jordan, Leslie, etc...

Another note, one of my science teachers had named her daughter Cordelia. I felt so bad for the girl.[/quote]


Cordelia was a made up name in the Anne of Green Gables books. 2 young girls making up plays or stories used that name. I've heard worse!

I never agreed with Anne that the name is beautiful, but she (nor L.M. Montgomery) certainly didn’t make it up!

Any "month" names are a bit droll. Unless you believe the story of Mayvin & Stephanie and their ten children. Their seven daughters: Janous, Ruary, Margie, April, June, Nova, Ember
And their three sons: Julio, Augustino, Tobey

You go get 'em!! Choot "em!!

Would never name a baby boy, Darwin. Too much association with the Darwin Awards and implying someone is so stupid that they deserve to be put down. Also went to grade school with someone with that name and he was a total bully. He was removed from regular school and ended up going to a school for bad boys I heard.

My first boyfriend's name was Darwin, as was his father. He was a nice guy.

Absolutely. It was the name of King Lear's youngest daughter in the Shakespeare Play. As a name, it is of Latin or Celtic origin meaning heart. It does not seem to have been a very popular name, but it has been around.
