Category: rarely heard names
Question of the Week:
Would you use an unusual name that, though legitimate, is one that most people wouldn’t have heard before?
For example, Matt Lauer and his Dutch-born wife named their second son Thijs, a name rarely heard outside The Netherlands, with a bewildering-to-most pronunciation (it’s TICE). Would you use a name of another ethnicity that’s unfamiliar here?
Would you shy away from a name that required a lot of explanation or embrace its individuality?
