    I'm a part of a gothic site (it's sort of like a gothic social media) and in the forums section, I found a thread titled "unorthodox baby names" and I just had to go through it. And now I have to share what people were talking about on there :P

    Braeydynn -- the comment "ridiculous. His F-ing name is still Braden" made me laugh


    Comments that were funny:

    "I wouldn't say it's unethical to name a child Bella, Edward, etc. Those are real names and five years from now when twilight's been completely forgotten by anyone that's actually going to breed, Edward will just be seen as a kind of nice traditional English name"

    "The problem is, a person who's going to name their child Nevaeh Yooneek Vodka Juicy Couture, isn't exactly the type of person who does a lot of research about anything."

    After the name Dasani came up -- "I'll name my kids Evian, Aquafina, Dasani and Perrier. "

    Yes. His F-ing name IS still Braden. I chuckled.

    Anna-Lucia Aurora Laura... what a tongue twister.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Divine Faith and Faithful Christian are a bit much even for this believer!

    Dakota-Blue sounds like a state is bleeding to death and needs help! (Code Blue)
    Reign Aikido Roose sounds like a Japanese cartoon character/video game.
    Bloem, Zus and Mensje are a little cheesy.
    Faelyn - it's Faolan or Phelan.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    'Faithful Christian' seems abusive on some level. Why give kids names they'll have to pay to change later???
