Bayme is a terrible name, but Bayne would be a great name. Imagine yelling at a kid called Bayne. "BAAAAAAAYYYYYNNNNEEE!"

So rad.

Heh heh. That makes me think of someone saying 'bam' in a funny accent. (around here bam is a rude term for an idiot. Which didn't stop an English construction company calling themself BAM, getting a contract up here and wandering around our new school with BAM on their uniforms.) Bad name for a child.

I just heard about parents who had a "surprise" child many years after their other children were grown, and actually considered naming the child Daisy. As in "whoops-a-daisy".

Also, I hesitate to post this one because it's so popular right now that I'm sure someone reading will love it: but man do I hate the name Cash.

I'm not sure what it's meant to evoke. It just makes me think of an ATM.

That's used as a name? Wow. Ash is a nice name. Cash is weird.

As in Johnny Cash maybe? He rocked socks. No, still weird.

I knew people who named their baby Casino. That was bad.

I've been watching the US Olympic qualifying coverage and there's a sports commentator named Rowdy Gaines.

Remember Payne Stewart?

Also: Picabo Street.

Actually, I might be in the wrong thread. I like the names Rowdy Gaines and Picabo Street in a novelty sort of way.

Electra is a perfectly fine name with no creepy overtones.

Yes, perhaps if they have a(nother) boy they can name him Oedipus.

I am happy to say I have never heard of a kid named Cash. I clearly don't run in the right circles .

Didn't Picabo Street's Mom wait until she was a toddler to name her and then let her name herself? That's the story I heard and in that story little girl Street loved the game Peek-a-boo more than anything... hence Picabo Street. I always liked that story. I have no idea if there is truth to it.

^Not sure, either.

Dick Butkus. I thought it was spelled Dick Butkiss but I just googled and it isn't. Anyhoo.

Ha. I call my kid Poptart as a nickname (yeah I don't know) and sometimes I worry people at the park think that's his real name. Also I call him Dolly a lot, and worry about the same thing.

He started calling his little brother Wrenny-Benny lately, which has led to us jokingly calling him Wrenjamin. Which is a pretty bad name.

haha I've started telling people we named our kid Sierra after the beer (well, it is my partner's fave, Sierra Nevada) and I guarantee many people think I'm serious.

Today someone told me that Scarlett has a "very creative" name, with the implication that it's weird or not a real name. Seriously? Actually, we fell in love with it because we're into old-fashioned names.

Ignore othe people's opinions! No matter what the name, someone will find something annoying to say about it.

And Scarlett is a beautiful, classic name.

Yeah, my cousin named her son Cassius and calls him Cash. I prefer to call him Cassius because if I say my second cousin is "Cash" it sounds silly.

a woman i went to school with named one of her daughters tekeila. the poor girl shares her name with a spirit with a bad reputation and it's spelled wrong. the only careers she can look forward to with that name aren't ones i'd pick for my own daughter :/
