I don't mind names that are different or foreign but the ones that annoy me are the 'ordinary' names done in some new spelling that no one could ever guess at in a million years.
What are parents thinking of? It means that their child will never be able to just say their name without having to spell it out to others.. every time.
I don't like some of the new names either, the ones trying to be cutting edge modern. They all date, in time.

But..I guess it comes down to what you are used to. One of my students did a double take and seemed amazed at an 'unusual' name in a book we were reading.
The name? I forget exactly, but it was something like Elvira, Ella, Esta, something like that.
She commented that 'That's a funny name'. Her own name? Chumani. :D

That reminds me.
We have just had a new family arrive at the school.
I won't give the full names here of course, but each child-and there are 3 of them-has this outlandish middle name.
Thank god they are middle names, that is what I say! :lol:
They are all film names
Buzz lightyear is one, (if I have it right) and another name is from star wars and so on.

Most names go with whats current at the time, the Victorians used names at the time for their sons and daughters ie Florence, Albert, Elizabeth, Grace etc.
In the 20s it was again George, Albert still in there etc.
2nd World Winston, Douglas, George, Ann.
and so on till today naming their kids after pop stars, film stars and tv stars its all a trend.

People are funny about the way they name their children. All my brothers were
named after saints, I was named after one of my father's old girlfriends! :?

She's another kid who will have to spell out her name for the rest of her life, then.
At least it wasn't one of the double letter monstrosities like reinnbbeauu that some people delight in making up.
