I feel bad for people who are given names so strongly associated with celebrities, just because the parents are fans. I include Kylie (outside of Australia), Madonna, etc in this. Britney was a nice enough variant of Brittany, but it became ridiculously associated with the singer. Parents should think ahead. It isn't them who are going to have to live with the name.

Floris Says:


I prefer Brittany.

Juliet Says:


I agree! I was a 27 year old Britney when I finally changed my name legally. I hate this name!
