I've noticed that people here don't like to choose names that are currently popular. Why is that? When I mentioned in my first post here that my favourite name was Emily, several people told me how popular it is, and it came across to me that I shouldn't use it because it's popular.

Personally, I don't think popularity should determine whether you chose a name or not. If you like the name, use it, if you don't find another.

(As an aside, I worked in in childcare for the past 7 years, and I only came across 1 Emily in that time.)

What do guys think of the name Jayelle?
It occured to me while pronouncing the initials JL.
I think it sounds nice, but how would you spell it? Maybe Jeyelle?

Also yesterday I met a woman named Julie, who has a baby girl named Lea(h?). Do you think they're too close to be in the same family?

1. Putting hyphens, apostrophes, asterisks, ampersands, dollar signs, or whatever the hell else type of foreign material into a name. But just for kicks, I still want to see someone named Asdf Jkl; It would be pronounced Ayesdeeffspacejaykayellsemicolon. Nickname: Home Row.

2. The letters A and E being next to each other in a name. This is visually dissonant because one letter is the upside down mirror image of the other. ae ae ae ae ae ae. See? Those two letters together look like a damn jigsaw puzzle.

3. Names consisting of four or more words. Completely unnecessary. Maybe it's just me, but I always imagine the parents saying something like "His name is Henry Foster Wallace Delany," with this shit-eating grin on their face like, yeah, four names, beat that sucka. But maybe it's just me. Also, it seems like a sign of indecisiveness of some sort. But MIJM.

4. Replacing the letter I with Y when it messes up the pronunciation. Carolyna? Okay, fine. Leslye? Only if you mean Les-lie.

Along the same lines, when people come up with a unique spelling and then have to explain how to pronounce it. No, it's pronounced how it's spelled. If you want it to be pronounced that way, I suggest you change the spelling or else people are going to mispronounce it for their entire life. I imagine a scenario. "Your child's name is Peter?" "Excuse me, it's pronounced Tim."

5. Random H's stuck in the middle of names. Megahn. Meghan. Mehgan. Mhegan. Hmegan?

6. The name Nevaeh. Cut it out guys. It's not etuc.


Also, I've added a name to my list of finalist: Adolf Aloicious III (The third of what? I don't know yet, but I'll think of something.)

Today I was looking at a church bulletin board, and they had newspaper clippings of kids in their church and their accomplishments.  There were a few interesting names, and I don't remember them all, but I do two of them.

Storm  - it was a girl's name

One I've not seen before:

Teardra

Thoughts?  I'm still blinking at Teardra.
