I consider myself pretty liberal when it comes to names and naming.
In fact, I have dear friends belonging to various different subcultures (goth, hippie, etc.) who are intelligent and loving parents and who have given their children names that might be considered “out there” by mainstream society.
I am compelled to say that any parent who would name her child after a HOBBIT seriously needs to be smacked upside the head with the handiest copy of Beyond [name]Ava[/name] and [name]Aiden[/name] until her ears are [name]Lord[/name]-of-the-ringing.
Exactly [name]Nephele[/name] and [name]Jill[/name]!! I saw that article too…[name]Patrick[/name] and [name]Stephen[/name] did not prepare me for what was coming next…I had to refresh my page several times before I believed it. Apparently she is already pregnant with her 14th…and god only knows what she will name that one!!
