Shipton?

Any thoughts on this name? I had heard the name Shipley
on tv a few years ago and it never left me, but Shipton would
sound better with my last name which starts with an L.
Thanks!!

Sounds awkward. In fact, I wouldn’t like to have it as a last name, either.

lol…yea, I was certainly not sold on this name, just thought it was unique and wondered what reactions might be:)

I think there are several towns in [name]England[/name] with Shipton in the name. (Shipton-on-whatever Shipton-under-wherever etc.) so it really sounds like a place name to me.

Hmmm, I’m not really digging it. I like the ending “-ton”.
[name]Shepard[/name] is similar in sound and I think I’d like it better.
Oh yes and [name]Sheridan[/name], I love [name]Sheridan[/name].

Shipley I like. Shipton sounds awkward to me.

Sorry, it reminds me of a specific large measurement, only the P is a T.
