Local Births - Alabama
Caroline Paige is nice and I have an odd affection for Bella Blu. Bella as a first name not short for anything reminds me of a great-aunt I had who'd probably be a hundred if she were still alive.
I had to try several times to pronounce this: Za’Alaliyah TaNala, and I'm still not sure I'm right. This child is going to have to spell her name for people constantly.
Also, what's up with D'Kayden and M'Kylan? Maybe it's just a pet peeve of mine to see punctuation in names (accents and hypens excepted, unless they're pronounced ie. La-a) but this looks like someone slapped their hand on a keyboard and this is what came out. Plus D'Kayden sounds like "decaying".
Bella Blu actually is adorable, though, and I like Caroline. The boys have a few winners I think. Hampton Wesley, Levi Collins, Clayton Elias, Isaac Coleman, Theodore Drake, Samuel Winn (I find this charming for some reason), Davis Matthew, and Isaiah Stone are all nice. I love Sawyer, but Sawyer Marc sounds like "Saw your mark".
Oh poor Starri Skye :( that is truly awful!!
are the only ones I like, the rest are bordering on dreadful!! I must have a look in my paper and see if there are birth announcements!!
Oh.My.God. Why are people so mean to their kids? I mean, some of these are fine but anything with y's or i's in new places, extra letters when there already is one or ' and multiple capital letters... poor things.
Some of these names are, ahem, g-h-e-t-t-o. There are some nice names here, though. I really like these:
If Elijah doesn't enter the top 10 this year I'll be surprised.
how are they Ghetto? haha
Seriously? It might not he politically correct to say, but naming your child anything that involves multiple apostrophes can really only be qualified as GHETTO.

I get on Nameberry and think to myself, "oh no, everyone likes the same names I do!" Then I see a real world example like this and think, "what the heck is wrong with everyone!" Nameberries are truly a rare breed of baby-namers, (and thank goodness for that!)
