This is the nameberry question of the week: Would you Â give your childÂ a name from an ethnicity other than your own?
â€¦.more specifically, would you choose a nameÂ which has not been fullyÂ integrated into Anglo-American nomenclature and would be in contrast to your surname?
Sometimes this can make for a felicitous combination–one example Â that springs to mind is newscaster Soledad O’Brien.Â And there are certainlyÂ plenty of Seans and Ryans with non-Gaelic/Celtic surnames.
If your surname was Greenberg, would you call your daughter Siobhan?
Or do you feel thatÂ a childâ€™s name should reflect his/her own ethnic ancestry?
