    We all have opinions but I do think we need to think about how we express them.
    I totally agree!

    My neighbour named his new born son Murdo, which means son of a sailor, and he's in the navy so its a nice thought.

    And a 15 year old girl in my sister class at school named her son J, not Jay, just the letter J.

    I have to say, I've never met a child who had a really crazy name. But, if I did, I would definitely say something to their parents! I think sometimes people need to say "What the hell?" when someone names their child something ridiculous!

    Some names deserved to be judged! If only to prevent more people from using them!
