Do you think it's tacky to name a child after a month they were NOT born in?

I don’t know which is weirder, naming a baby after the month they were born in, or naming a baby after a month they were not born in. When you really break it down, both options feel a little weird. The first seems unremarkable and unimaginative, the second is just perplexing. I think month names are one of those things that you can think to death, but in practice, it’s never that weird, and definitely not tacky.

You know what is tacky? Naming a child after the place they were conceived.

When I meet a child with a month name, my usual guess would be that a) the month has some significance to the family (either as an honor or just as a special month for them), or b) the parents just liked how the name sounded (especially in the cases of [name_u]August[/name_u], [name_u]June[/name_u] and May). I wouldn’t automatically assume that a child with a month name was literally born in that month

Yeah I’ve never really understood that one either. Feels just a tad odd to me, and honestly just really awkward
