Adeline is being overused now. Pretty name but will be too many in a few yrs. Rethink this one.

Friends have 2 girls named Tiger Uvelda (You-velda) and Toshawah (Tosh-a-wah)Georgette. I've seen some unreal and embarrassing names. I would stick to traditional names with no crazy spelling. I've seen Brittney spelled Brytneii. A name is an honor not a stone around the neck.

Have you ever heard of a lawyer or doctor named ky'lece? People are judged by their names everywhere you go. Plus that sounds really ghetto.

I have a very common first name BUT my mother spelled it a little differently. It has been mispronounced my whole life and I'm in my mid 30's. Please rethink giving your child an altered spelling to a common name and I still stand behind "traditional is better".
give the kid a real name

To all that suggest to stick with "traditional".. I think that traditional names are "over used" I mean why not have a unique name? It makes you different, All of those "traditional" names came from somewhere!.. I think different is good. & So far I love the name "Adeline" That " Lesson Learned 1" suggested! Thnx guys, Keep'em commin !:)
I suppose it's a big ego thing with a lot of young couples to see who can come up with the most "unique" name, but it ain't about you and the brief satisfaction you'll get from doing that, nor the reaction from all your friends, etc. It's about the kid's well being.

The fact is your poor child will be stuck with this dopey name the rest of his life. I know something about that of which I speak. I have a "unique" name. I was named for the old doc who delivered me. I'd much rather have been named Tom, Bob, Joe or Bill.

Being unique isn't having a weird name. If your kid wants to be unique he can do something great to set himself apart from the crowd. That's the sort of uniqueness that means something.

So don't be a dumb butt, do your kid a favor and give him a name he won't hate the rest of his life.

How do you pronounce Ky'lece? Is it for a boy or girl ?
maybe it's pronounced
"Kentucky Lice"....... I mean really? Who would want a name that sucks that much?

I have to agree with the ones standing up for traditional names. A name says who you are. It should not be an inanimate object nor an element like rain, star, moon etc. it should be an actual name. And not one some kid can make fun of or shorten.

For example I don't care for the name Conner simply because I know that's a kid that's going to spend his entire life being called "Con man" or "The Conner" or just "TheCon" or "Con" and teased unmercifully. I especially don't like it when it's spelled Connor. Makes me want to pronounce it Conn-"or". Which also sucks.

Call someone something often enough and they sometimes believe it about themselves or don't try to rise above it. It's difficult enough for children without a stupid lousey, hard to pronounce or hard to spell name. It's not cool or fun when somebody starts giggling at the sound of your name or the spelling. It can be hurtful.

Don't give a kid any reason to think you don't care for them. Give them an actual name. One to be proud of. A solid name that has a good meaning behind it or that at least sounds strong, self assured. & masculine for a boy. For a girl something pretty or lovely that comes off the lips easily & is easy to recall & spell because its an actual name.

I think the government should name your kids for you from a short government list.The government gives you a SS number at birth why not name you.

The comment about the government naming your children truly sickens me...

Don't you think the government already makes enough choices for you that you don't need to give them such a personal, beautiful experience everyone deserves to have, naming their child.

I don't want to live in a world where we are treated like robots with numbers for names picked off a short list of names that mean nothing to you or your family. Picked by someone who will never meet you and never have any sort of influence in your life. This is honestly such a sad thought and is defiantly not the world I want my children living in.

Spelling a name in a cutesy way only makes the parents look illiterate. If you have to put the pronunciation of the name beside it, then perhaps you should rethink the name.

Try a traditional name with an unique name. That way they can choose what they want to be called professionally later in life.
