Saying much of anything else is pointless. Words are used as name every day.

EvaThyssen Says:


Would you name a baby Day? or Week? or Year?
There are some Spanish words that work great as names (Luna, Esperanza, Consuelo, Rosario, Trinidad), but Santo, Vida and Día are very strange for a native Spanish speaker.

otheralix Says:


I'm not sure why you'd think that. People name their children Luna, Cruz, Santo, Vida... and a thousand English words, too. It's not new.

EvaThyssen Says:


That's scary. Especially when the language is widely spoken.

otheralix Says:


People name babies Day and Tag.

EvaThyssen Says:


The correct spelling is Día, with an accent. It's not a proper given name, tho. It's like naming your baby, Day or Tag, it doesn't make sense.
