Why would any parent ever even consider this? Even the way tequila sounds is unpleasant, let alone what it actually means!

Poppet93 Says:


Firstly, it's a stripper name. Secondly it's almost a forgone conclusion that this kid will be a future alcoholic...along with her friends Vodka, Ouzo and Rum

Zelliew Says:


She could be a sister for Sherry & Brandy

RavenZimmi Says:


This is a popular nickname for this girl I know named Kyla

Why in the world would anyone give this name to a child at birth?

Agreed; I was so surprised when I looked for Troian a few mins back and didn't see it, and yet I see VERY out there names with weird spelling variations. So many users are VERY knowledgeable about rarer, amazing names - especially specific to different cultures - and I would love to see more in there. I wish there was a way to make NB more like Wikipedia (but with more guidance), so that users could submit names and descriptions and corrections easily and then a moderator board could quickly check and confirm it. That would be the most amazing compilation of names ever!

Guest Says:


This is a call to arms to delete this and other absolutely outrageous things from the database and add more real and interesting names like for example Troian or Marliese or Nakoa or something!

Guest Says:


My neighbor is named Alizé so I'm not surprised some evil mother would name her daughter Tequila. But if you're a mom who loves tequila so much name her Margarita which is an actual name!

Tila Tequila is such a great role model for your future child *sarcasm*
