Certain "names" in the database that don't seem like names at all
Looking through the database, I've found some "names" that I wouldn't consider usable at all. Lancashire, Canada, Bird, Season, Fidelity? I don't really consider them names, they're just words to me. I feel like by including them Nameberry is legitimizing if not encouraging their use as names, and I'm not sure that's a good thing.~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

Hahaha, I go through this a lot with my sister. Some personal faves:
Glimmer (...........Sparkal's sister?)
Banana (All I think of is Phoebe from Friends becoming Princess Conseula Banana Hammock)
Lancashire (Although I saw it in a birth announcement from the London Telegraph)
Bird (Birdie, yes, Bird? No.)
Renesmee (ew, ew, ew, ew, EWWW)
Katniss (All I hear is 'cat p***')
Essex (anything with 'sex' in it should be off limits)
Best one that isn't on NB that I've seen has got to be Shampayne though."The most courageous act is still to think for yourself, aloud" - Coco Chanel ♔

I find Lancashire hilarious. And Essex. Just... no. I wonder what else is listed - Glasgow? Newcastle? Shropshire? Peterborough?
I think the Princess Consuella reference is a strong enough pop culture tie for Banana to stay (we could even add Crap Bag? ''If you need a way to remember it, just think of a bag of crap'' I've actually cried of laughter at that scene)
And Camera. Camera is listed on a namesite, as a name. Let's just all take a moment... Camera. Camera.
