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.
