Three years late, but I happen to disagree... Fleetwood is a beautiful and special name (similar to Rhiannon for the girls I guess). Anyone can be Mick or Mac, and who even knows who the namesake is if that's what you're going for. DH and I happen to love Fleetwood (and the band obviously) and we have considered using it as a middle name if our child is a boy. Granted, our taste is a little more offbeat, and it's not a choice for everyone.

Name your child Rhiannon or Sara, not Fleetwood. Also, name your boy Mick or Mac or something.
