[QUOTE=ddoll;1044316]We had a dog the kids named Abu, but that is about as Disney as I would ever get with names. Ariel was popular for quite a while after the Little Mermaid, but that’s the only one I can think of.
I get to hear all the baby names, being a labor and delivery nurse. I always feel bad when I hear parents choose bizarro names. It’s tough enough being a kid without having to put up with teasing about your name. It may be different in Hollywood where weirdo names are the norm for celeb babies, but not for average kids.
(I did name one of my kids Dane after the son in The Thornbirds though)[/QUOTE]
And I think you should consider it your sacred duty to share the oddball ones with us when you hear them. :laugh:
But I do wonder: with such a diversity of names out there, are there any that the kids themselves consider bizarre? I think the teasing might come from things like unfortunate rhymes and things like that, rather than the names themselves. Or am I off base?
