I'd have Sydney. How utterly boring. I guess I could go for naming my kid "Sutherland Shire" which would be slightly more exotic cool.gif

It's definitely not the worst name I've heard of though:

La-a (pron. Ladasha)

Abcde (pron. Abbaceedee)

I kid you not. The names belong to two girls living somewhere in Tassie (not related). One goes to the school where my sister teaches and the other is seeing a speech pathologist who works with a friend of mine at one of the hospitals down there.



Little Le-a has moved from Louisiana then?

Yet another Ladasha! Funny how everyone knows someone who teaches one...

Meh not one for changing the spellings though as PP have said it's not the worst.

Now where they were conceived

Hmm lets see DS would be Buderim, DD1 would MountainCreek and DD2 would be North Ward. Angel baby could have been Caboolture we could have called them Kabul to be different.

Super names don't you think? wink.gif

Still trying to get over some of the kids names at DDs daycare.

"Mercesdez," is one.

" Liryc" is another.

And then "Style."

Liryc and Style are boys.

You think London's bad...? How about the newest spelling of Sydney...

I saw a little girl called Sidonie and I looked at her with all the pity I had in my body...she needs it after what her parents did to her!!!!

Maybe if everyone named their kids after where they were conceived we'd have some interesting ones. Mine would be called Eltham and Kingsley!


SNAP!!

I'd have 2 Eltham's and a Macleod.

London is NMS but not too offensive.

That Mercesdez isn't too bad compared to Mersaydees - nothing like spelling it as it sounds...

No no - this isn't the latest boganisation of Sydney! Well, maybe it is but it IS actually a name. It's typically not pronounced Sydney, but rather See-DOE-knee. I went to school with a Sidonie back in the 80s. I think it was Latin or something.

I guess it depends on how the parents intend it - perhaps by making uuuneeek names has come full circle and they lucked onto an actual name!!

yep, us too... we did a preschool tour the other day and I admit to having a quiet snicker to myself in the bagroom.  There was a Hailea and a Brittni and a few other super classy names sick.gif  

Sunnysideup, Dorcas is an old english name... unkind in the current times, but still a legit name.

My SIL is Dorcus, biblical name actually.

As for Londyn, NMS.

My place names would be Holsworthy and Harrison! Too funny.

At the kindy where I sometimes do relief work we had:

Pypr (Piper) and Aingeal (Angel).

Unfortunately I wish I had one of those kindys where names don't stand out, but they do.

So that would make mine Roma 1 , 2, 3, and 4, umhh.

I don't really like names misspelled and I'm not into place names for children's names.

I don't think it's the worse I'd have to agree and say Izobellah is the worst I've seen in a while.

I don't mind place names (although my son isn't named for the place but rather for John Denver)

If he was named after where he was concieved the possiblities are endless as I have no idea, I'll just pick Ocean sounds best out of all the other options  biggrin.gif
