    I don't love or hate it... The only thing I don't like is that I can't think of any good nicknames for it... The first one I could think of could easily be twisted in a sexual way, so that might be a strike against it.

    Is Compton, California a place people would want to name their children after?

    My first thought is Compton, California and then the Kid Rock song "Cowboy":

    I'm not straight outta Compton I'm straight out the trailer

    Compton, CA is the first thing I think of, and I wouldn't name my child after Compton. Sorry.

    Is it a family name? When it comes to unusual surname names I think it only works if it's actually your family's name

    Fox * Shea * Jade * Azure * Eden * Greer * Arden
    Lotus * Tallulah * Noor * Jasper * Blaise * Linden
