    Think Before You Name.......

    I mean, most of these names are going to do serious damage to your kids. Why would do that to them? They are completely innocent & don't deserve the teasing & bullying they are sure to get with names like.....Apple, West, Leaf, just to name a few..........

    I Don't Mind

    Names are just names. If the kids don't like the name given to them they can go by something else.

    HA! Seeing this group cracks me up.

    As a teacher I've seen names come and go - but the "Aden" craze was something else - every other boy was Braden, Caden, Jaden or zaden for about 5 years! It made it hard to name my kids because I wanted to make sure to stick with traditional names - Addie, Eli, Leo and...

    A Million Emily's

    I'm not in favor of parents naming their children off the wall names, don't get me wrong. I wouldn't want to grow up with the name Apple,...but having super rich famous parents might soften the blow, somewhat. I have a pretty uncommon name. I've never met anyone else with my...
