    Gerber Baby Names

    So I'm just curious to see if anyone else has been snooping the Gerber Baby Contest to check out the names! If you are not familiar with it, the website is www.gerber.com/photo and you can check out the gallery of the babies and toddlers who have been entered and vote for them to be the next "Gerber Star". Anyway, being a name-lover I can't help but notice which names go with which faces! As I expected, there is a flood of Isabella's, Addison's, Gavin's, Riley's (or as one boy was spelled- "Rhylee"...no comment), not to mention a fair amount of "unique" names (Nathyn Jaykob???? not exactly the name of a future president). I did come across some names that stuck out to me (both in good and bad ways) so I thought I would share some:

    Lourdes - appeared more than once
    Genevieve
    Jasper - I've only seen on nameberry!
    Arkady (g) - 'arcade' much??
    Zeegan - adorable girl...not-so-adorable name..
    Sweden (g)
    Augustina
    Tonniel (b) - does that look like 'toenail' to anyone else?
    Quest
    Leecon (b) - no idea how that is supposed to be said
    Evianna/Evelyse
    Pashance - the poor girl better have patience, because she's going to be correcting people's spelling for the rest of her life!
    Handin (b)
    Mabel
    Magdelena
    and this one made me cringe: Siouxzie ....yes. I believe that is intended to be the equivalent of Suzie. My jaw fell to the ground.

    Sidenote- I want to be clear that I'm not bashing any babies here. I'm all for naming your kid what you want- just thought I'd spark a little conversation! Thoughts/Comments/Opinions/Others?

    most of those are def not my kind of thing - what is it with parents thinking things like Pashance are a good idea?
    i have, admittedly though, always liked the name susie spelt Siouxsie - like Siouxsie Sioux from Siouxsie and the Banshees. this is maybe where those parents got it from
