I was just wondering.... What does everyone think of the name Zealand? I came up with it a few years back while putting some books back on a shelf at the library and seeing a book on New Zealand. With kids named Paris and London and America... Why not?! I love love love the nn Zealy, Zeal and Zea. I'm just concerned that people will hear it and think it is really weird, or that family will be shocked by it or kids will tease him. We have absolutely no ties to New Zealand. Just love how Zealand sounds. Do you think it could fit a baby, a little boy, a teenager, an adult? Or does it just sound like trouble? I am totally in love with it! I just need the assurance that it is ok to use!

I think... it is a country and an island. It may not help that I dislike almost all place names :/ I can almost understand why someone would want to use Paris, Vienna, London etc because they sound like they could be names, but when it comes to place names with -land at the end, I despair. Perhaps if you had a strong link to the country it would make a cute middle name but otherwise, yes, it is trouble. I'm having issues trying to see it as a name let alone seeing it fit a boy of different ages! I reckon that if you really love it and have to use it, you should leave it in the middle spot.

Aw that kind of makes me sad... I've heard so many people that really love it! Any other opinions?
