My sister in law was commenting that kids today have really cool names - not like Debbie or James or Michael, but cool names like Brooklyn or Linsely or Ashley or Mackenize

I was :duh: and thinking that was one of the more :rolleyes: comment of the weekend

^^ Ashley ... that's okay. That's a normal name. Mackenize is pushing it (and I know one ... and dislike her :P). But Brooklyn and Linsely? She thinks those are cool? Me thinks they are stoopid. I will never understand why parents would want to saddle their kids with stupid names. They are going to be adults one day and possibly working in the professional world. I would laugh every time I had to go to my boss and go "excuse me Brooklyn". That sounds like an exotic dancer (i.e., stripper) to me. Never had kids, but I would never give them a names like most of the "creative" ones in this thread.

My neice's little girl (1 yr now) is named "Coco Rose". At first I thought :eek: but actually it suits her, and goes nicely with her last name. At least when she's older, people will remember her name and associate it with something good to eat :lol:

My sister has an alpaca named Coco. Everyone calls her Cocoa Puffs, because as alpacas go, she really is puffy.

I watched a documentary the other day. The woman was called possibly the worst name I've *ever* heard/seen: Latrina :scream:
I was spelt on the screen when she was interviewed, so I know that was the name...

I used to work with a woman named LaTrina. What were those parents thinking? Scary to think there are two sets of parents with the same bad idea.

I don't get it, could you explain why you think it's a horrible name?
It does not seem too bad from this:

Meaning: Its source is Aikaterine, a Greek name meaning "Pure."

Maybe I'm odd but I like the name Brooklyn well enough. Today I was working and a family came in with a child named Hill.

Well, that's possible, but I think that the "source" just made up an origin that sounds vaguely like the name. The Greek source "Aikaterine" is the root for the name "Katherine" and its variants ("Katrina and such).

Any connection between "Katherine" and "Latrina" is entirely coincidental.

I read in the AM the other day that Brooklyn is very highly ranked nation wide but in New York, it doesn't even crack top 100. For me, it's very associated with the borough...it would be odd to me to give my child the name of the place I live in.

I'm pretty traditional on the naming front though. I like names like Sofia, Amelia, Charlotte, Madeline, Lucas, Henry, etc.

:rofl:

All I can think of is Tracey Ullman's character Latrine in Robin Hood: Men In Tights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eD-F3kqGVLw) (start at 8:05).

When I was in 1st grade, the teacher read us a book that had a character named Latrina. I thought it was such a pretty name .... until I became a Girl Scout and learned what a latrine was! :rofl:

All these kids are going to spend their entire lives spelling their names for people. My own name isn't that unusual (and if I was in the US it would be reasonably common), is only four letters long, and not an odd spelling, but nowadays when people ask me my name I tend to automatically say the name and then spell it, because that saves time. I can't imagine what it would be like to have one of these 'creative' names.
