List of names from the last 3 months birth records at the local hospital here:

[...]
Gershom

[...]

OTOH seeing some lovely classics (Beatrice, Mavis).  Boy names that are trending here are Levi and Bentley.


Gershom is a Biblical name.  That was the name of one of Moses' sons.

Yeah I don't necessarily have an issue with any of the names listed, I just found them unusual.

Same with Levi

Levi is another name that was (is?) very popular in Utah. I had many classmates with that name.

I know someone who gave their son the middle name of Danger, just so he could say, "Danger is my middle name."

Just heard of a couple with the surname Munt...They gave their baby boy and ordinary first name, and the middle name Excite.

LOL!

My dd's friend's name is Montana.  And she HATES it when people ask her why she was named that.  (Her parents were vacationing there and 9 months later.....)

I guess she doesn't realize she doesn't actually have to tell people the TRUTH if they ask her about her name.  She can always just say that her parents named her after one of their favorite places.

I just heard this one last night. I will try and be vague, and not give away any details, but twins, boy and girl.  Boy is Beowulf November and the girl is Owl. I can’t recall the middle name, but it was “normal” but not all that common.

My comment was "who names their child after a bird of prey?"

Our local radio station was doing a call-in segment this morning about baby names - they quoted a statistic that more than 50% of parents regret a name they chose for a child (I have no idea where the stat came from, or if it's true). I heard several stories from parents who just didn't realize giving their child a 4 syllable first name and 4 syllable middle name, along with their 3 syllable last name, might cause problems come kindergarten time. Or they never paid attention to how strange it sounds to say all their kids names together. I wonder if any of the parents spoken of in this thread regret their name choices?
