One of my most hated names. Great name for an unwanted baby!
I think Dirk and Kirk must be two of my warped and guilty name secrets! Dirk reminds me of a Scottish knife men carry on or around their kilts and Kirk reminds me of the Scottish word for church as well as Captain Kirk who I long ago found sexy despite his ego the size of Cleveland.
It also sounds like you're saying Derek really fast.
