British singer [name_u]Joss[/name_u] [name_m]Stone[/name_m] had her son and revealed his name yesterday. He will be little Brother to [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Melissa[/name_f] DeLuz
His name is Shackleton [name_m]Stoker[/name_m] DeLuz thoughts?
I think Stoker is pretty cool, but I’m not a fan of Shackleton. I think the word shackle just has such a bad connotation, and it doesn’t have a pleasant sound anyway. At least names like Danger and Shooter sound appealing even though they don’t have nice meanings, but Shackleton is a horrible meaning and an unappealing sound, at least in my opinion, obviously they must disagree. But even if I did like the sound I think it’s just too much to name your child after something that is associated with holding someone against their will.
the only positive connotation would be ernest shackleton the explorer, but then again why not use ernest?
Interesting! After [name_m]Ernest[/name_m] Shackleton?
It’s a bold name for sure, and I’d definitely have balanced it with something a little more mainstream (and a little less Gothic) in the middle, but I love to see a totally unexpected choice! With [name_f]Violet[/name_f] I’d have predicted something like [name_u]Arthur[/name_u], [name_u]Jasper[/name_u], [name_m]Louis[/name_m], [name_u]Henry[/name_u], [name_u]August[/name_u].
Yep, She replied to someone who asked saying it was after [name_m]Ernest[/name_m] Shackleton x
Shackleton…? As in, shackles? ?
Stoker is so cool, definitely should’ve used that as a first, in my opinion.
I think Violet Melissa & Stoker Ernest would’ve been so lovely together!
Personally I think Shackleton brings up terrible associations and imagery, I’m not a fan. I wouldn’t ever put something like that on another person, especially a child, myself.
I suppose at least he could go by Shack!
I’m at a point in my Nameberry life that when I see “out of this world names” appearing in the celebrity section I’m convinced I’m gearing up to read [name_u]Nick[/name_u] Canons next birth announcement
Not a fan but personally… gives me that vibe of “shacking up with someone .”
Interesting! Shackleton and Stoker are both such word-name-y surnames with slightly odd associations (shackles and stoking…) and share most of the same letters…so I really feel like it should have been either/or rather than both of these? Maybe she’s just a huge Ernest Shackleton and Dracula fan
[name_m]Ernest[/name_m] Shackleton was an incredible leader, but I agree that Shackleton is an odd choice for a first name. Maybe they’ll call him Shack?
I just think of shackles, and bondage is not really something I would want to associate with a child (or adult, for that matter). I also think of [name_u]Jack[/name_u] Skelington.
Shackleton is such an awesome namesake. It’s bold and striking. I’d have used it in the middle, but I’m not a celebrity
