TeenberryO13 i don't see the problem with this one? Is there something i'm not getting/missing? I just don't see the point behind nameberry's comment 'this one will go down real well in seventh grade'. I just can't find any teasable rhymes or anything. How could she be teased? Can you help me out here?

mamanmia Says:


i don't get why this on's considered bad? The meaning 'battle swan' is kind of awesome, especially because swan are considered peaceful and gentle, so in a way it could be taken to mean a peacful resistence or protest

beachbear Says:


The biggest problem with Nameberry's comment is that Swanhild's classmates will have already had awhile to get used to her name before she reaches 7th grade. Unfortunately, though, I likely wouldn't have been the only kindergartner laughing at her :(.
