Shadey

Princess first name

I'd be concerned about being known as Shady Lady.  Somehow it doesn't seem ... flattering.

It's phantom H day.

Dianah


Dianah is not new,  it's an old spelling used since at least the 1800's.

Khloé Kardashian named her daughter True Thompson.
It's not a common name, but it's not a new name, and it doesn't have an unusual spelling.

Khloé Kardashian named her daughter True Thompson.

For a Kardashian name, it's not that bad. It's spelled correctly, easy to say, and seems to fit with virtue-type names like Prudence or Faith.

Also, True appears to be a name from her father's side of the family.

Full disclosure - I posted as the mother of a True.  It's a family name for me, too - my mother's first cousin.  I think she, in turn, was named for someone of the previous generation - her brother is the one in the family really into genealogy, he'd know for sure - I'll have to ask him.

I used to know someone who had had a college roommate named "Truly." I'm not sure if it was a nickname or a given name (she went to school in Georgia, and I could see it being either one). I always thought it was a very charming name. (I don't think I'd give it to a child, but I was given a "cute" name by my parents, and I think I would only use it as a nickname for a more "grown-up" name, based on my own experience.)

True, also spelt Trew, is an English surname. Sometimes it originated as a nickname for a truthful or loyal person, as in the name Tru(e)man, and sometimes was a locational name from the Old English word treow meaning 'tree': there are several small places called Trew in Devon.

Truly is also an English surname, though much rarer. It comes from the place name Truleigh (pronounced 'truly') in Sussex.

So I can easily see an American family that had an ancestor surnamed True or Truly using it as a personal name. (Though tbh I can't imagine the Kardashians doing so!)

I'd put "True" down as "rare, but not outrageous" for a name. The main problem is that True will spend a lot of time going "No. True. Not Drew."

If this name is from the article I read, Sheboygan is the baby's middle name and named after a story the mother's dad told her when she was a little girl. The baby is not named for the city. It's their 14th son so "she's a boy again."

Not my cup of tea but at least it's only a middle name.
