I could see this being used as a middle name, but not a first name

ThatCrazyJedi Says:


This is a horrible idea for a name in my opinion. I love my country and everything, but it seems a little bit of an awkward name to give to a child

RoddyThlayli Says:


I live in Canada so this sounds kind of awkward to me, but I can see how other people could use it, especially with the 'a' ending, as opposed to 'land' like in Ireland.

This has a soft, pretty sound.

AmericanChick Says:


Decent name, but if you are American and you name your kid Canada they might be the butt of many jokes.

DryLake Says:


Didn't know that this was used as a name... It sounds really nice.
(One of my classmates that used to say that he never wanted children, redecided after he discovered that Canada could be a name...)
