My friend's SIL just had her baby boy and named him Jrake!

Awful horrible and terrible in my opinion.

So tell me EB, is there anyone that actually likes this name?

What is it? A mutant form of Drake and Jake?

Argh.

A J sound instead of the hard D in Drake I'm guessing?

Shocking.

Could it have been a typo of Jake?

I came into this thread via the "what we're discussing" and thought Jrake must be a new Hollywood couple.

Definitely NMS.

No it's not a typo as I confirmed that with her thinking it must be Jake or Drake. And she said no, it's definitely Jrake.

My friend is not impressed either and it's her nephew. Poor kid.

My five year old thought the car goes up a jriveway. But then she got grommets.

A foul abomination of a name.

Rats! I thought I had settled on my weirdest names for 2012 (Pippin and Libertine were clear winners) but now may have to rethink. Jrake? A good lawyer will win gazillions in compensation for this poor child when he grows up.

His full name is Jrake "2 normal middle names"  XXXX so at least he's got an option to chose from when he's older.

Hope this new mum doesn't read this thread. Hormones are enough of an issue after giving birth without throwing in a bunch comments about how you pity their new baby and how horrible the name is.

Love it!

I highly doubt the she will find this thread being as she's in another country... But will remove the 2 middle names just in case then. wink.gif

A quick google shows there is already a lot of negative comments about the name Jrake so it wouldn't be a shock for her reading more of it. My friend said she apparently found the name online so would have done her research and known it wasn't exactly highly thought of.

Grayam - looks kinda sophisticated if you don't say it outloud and realise what it is phonetically.

Jrake - looks like it could pass as eastern european...?

I actually try so hard not to be a name snob, but that is truly awful. And if a new mum of a Jrake IS reading this, I'm sure you're lovely, I'm sure your child is lovely, but the name is not. It's not too late to change it to Jake. Or even Jayke. Jayq. Jaiykk even. Please.
