I hardly think Britannia is "attacked" OR that Ireland gets rave reviews. And I don't know what bandwagon we're jumping on. But 272 baby girls were named Ireland in the US last year versus zero for Britannia, so Ireland deserves a bit more commentary as a name choice.

Because Ireland was made trendy by a celebrity, so NB has to jump on the bandwagon, despite the fact that it's ridiculous to name your child after someone else's country, as if the meaning attached to the name by millions of people is less important than the fact the parents decided it was cute. It's so patronising. At least Britannia is a person in the first place, even if she is the personification of a country.

So Ireland gets rave reviews but Britannia (which I think is cute) is attacked.
