I know a boy whose name is Davian because his mom wanted Damian but his dad wanted David.

Sorry, Chloureen is bad. I like the idea of separating the names into first and middle. That's what my sister did for her daughter, Matilda Louise.

I'm just making my way through the Kharlotte name (and no, no matter how many times it's explained to me I will still pronounce it car lot, that's just how it's stuck in my brain now) and I'm wondering if numom499 is still around and how this name has worked out for her niece now that she's a few years old.

My grandparents did it for my uncle's MIDDLE name (thankfully it was his middle name) took my grandfather's brothers Larry and Kenny and came up with Larken (I can't remember now if it's LarkEn or LarkIn) of course my uncle went and 'blessed' his son with the middle name. They seem to like it though. Good thing they didn't combine my grandfathers parents names...Berta and Joseph...Jota?

Oh and my DH wears socks with sandals and shorts : but in his defense he has diabetes so his toes are really fugly...I don't blame him for covering them puppies up. I just wish he'd skip the sandals and wear tennis shoes year round

No. He was from Phoenix. He should have been forced to take a fashion course.

He also kept telling me how "We live in the better part of Arrowhead.. the demographics are just different there".

In other words, "We are better than you, so you should understand that".

LOL.. "fine, then, you just go home in your teva's and socks, and enjoy your special-ness"

I LOVE larken! I'd even use that one, and I am not much of an "odd name" person.

LOL! I went to Scottsdale for a week once, and I've never seen so many Maseratis and Lambourginis in all my life. But c'mon, socks and sandals??? I hope they were athletic socks and not dress socks, that would be just too much.

My dh wears dress socks w/ some casual-shoe Skechers and shorts. : The shoes are great, but better under pants.

He's also a calf-socks & sandals guy. (If you knew his mother, you'd understand...)

as someone whose name rhymes with chlorine, i can tell you that poor child is in for a world of teasing.

: No, thank God!! They have a W (Wilson brand) on the top.

Misunderstood your question: That is a common style of calf socks! But not the type dh wears.

Vbactivist, keep us up to date about this. Inquiring minds need to know if your SIL comes to her senses.

I agree, it's too similar to chlorine. How about Clorinda or Clarina?

Masterdiamond, and his older siblings Myheaven, Yourhighness, and Yourmajesty.

No joking.... I'm being absolutely 100% truthful. Masterdiamond was one of my students during my first year of teaching. He went by Diamond (which isn't nearly as bad).

Hmm, let's see. My grandparents on one side are (were) Betty and Percy. I could call my next child Perty!

My daughter went to school with a girl named Dorcus.

By fifth grade it became unbearable, and in 7th grade she had her named changed to Samantha.
