I agree with you on Neveah - horrible!! Reminds me of teen pregnancies.
However, I think Dorothy is absolutly beautiful. I loved ever since I was a kid reading the Wizard of Oz, in my head people named Dorothy walk around with red, fun shoee, blue birds chirping and have amazing musical abillitites :) I guess it really is what you associate with it. Also, there are so many great nn for Dorothy!
Sindre is a very commen name in Western Europe so that it not that odd sounding to me..
A friend of a friend named her daughter Ayvah - all the extra letters seem unnecessary!
I was also at the toy shop recently buying a present for my niece - I heard a little girl named Sunny (not sure what it was short for/if it was short for something!), and boy's named Phoenix and Orlando. I think Sunny's super cute and was impressed with the boy's parents daring even though I don't love the names!
I met a little Zadie the other day. While the name is nice I can just picture her happen to correct people all the time
I've also met my fair share of Nevaeh's. I will never understand the appeal of that name.
And obviously the various forms of the famous Jayden/Jaiden/Jayydon/Jeyden/Jadene ect ect.
There is a girl in one of True's classes named Knowledge. I was shocked when Truman came home and was like, "Mom, I met the new girl today her name is Knowledge." There was a mom at the park after I had just had Delaney, that her daughter's name was Hennessey. I almost fell off the park bench and we got strange looks when we named Truman, Truman. And we did get some looks when we named Delaney, because everyone though we were going to name her something "weird".
I met a little girl named Kaiden the other day...
I saw the name A n d r o m e d a, in my niece's closing ceremony program. I asked her if the little girl was teased about her name and she said, "No, but she mostly goes by, Andy." I thought it was a special and rare find. I know it's not most people taste, but I like it.
