    It isn't a "why would you EVER name your child that" story, but once at the dinner table at a family gathering I had been blabbering on about how Anna is one of my absolute favourite names and how it's a certain name for a future daughter of mine, jump to about seven months later when a (relatively close) family member gives birth to a baby girl who she then names Anna. I know it's a popular name and I realize I'm not owning the name or anything, but I legitimately looked at her in disbelief when they announced the name. Later on at another gathering we were seated together and we talked about her daughter and I said to her "you do realize that I'm still gonna use Anna if I ever get a daughter" and she just laughed at me because she thought I was kidding ... but I'm not

    I wonder what they'd name a daughter?
    That's how I first reacted. His parents call him King but if I were him I would prefer Max. As to a daughter I have no idea. Queen, Queenie, Princess? And what do you name a second son, Prince?
    If I had a baby right now they'd be:
    Isaac
    or
    Blaire

    I know a girl called crystal white, which I only realised the connection when I saw diamon white on American idol.

    I've had that reaction to my son's name actually. His name is Drake, which isn't a big deal where we live. However, I'm half Swedish and grew up there and Drake is the exact word for "dragon". So yeah, I've gotten quite a few comments from my Swedish friends and family.

    Some WHAT moments of my own:
    Emlyn Elias (my niece...yes, NIECE)
    Chuckey (boy)
    Ameldra (girl)
    Alexis Victoria
    mom to the dragon and lion boys, AKA Drake Zephyr and Skandar Leonidas
