Not really. In order to be made a saint one has to have performed a miracle. Thus, parents who feel that the child’s birth is a miracle use Saint as a tribute. Not my cup of tea, but I understand the thought process.

It is definitely a silly reason.

I love the name Saint. But I honestly think Kim Kardashian named her son Saint because of designer brand Saint Laurent, nothing less nothing more. A difficult pregnancy and Saint have nothing to do with each other.

I feel like people naming their kids Saint because "it was a difficult pregnancy" or whatever have NO idea what a saint really is. it makes them sound stupid to me.

I've seen people use the likes of St. Michael and St. Thomas as middle names for boys on occasion. In that form, and used to honour a parent's or family's religious orientation, I believe it is wholly acceptable. But Saint by itself? I think that's inappropriate on a number of levels, the primary two being that it's outrageously pretentious, and because it is now irrevocably linked to the Kartrashians.

I would use Saint as a middle name to honor my caribbean culture. Part of my roots are from St. Thomas so I think it would be really cool/edgy to use Saint. It is a cute middle name, I wouldn't like it as a first name.

I don't think you'd have much to worry about. This is a name that I (emphasis on I, as in only my opinion) would put in the controversial category. I can't imagine it would get very popular, but one never knows ;-)
