Certain "names" in the database that don't seem like names at all
Looking through the database, I've found some "names" that I wouldn't consider usable at all. Lancashire, Canada, Bird, Season, Fidelity? I don't really consider them names, they're just words to me. I feel like by including them Nameberry is legitimizing if not encouraging their use as names, and I'm not sure that's a good thing.~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

Hahaha, I go through this a lot with my sister. Some personal faves:
Glimmer (...........Sparkal's sister?)
Banana (All I think of is Phoebe from Friends becoming Princess Conseula Banana Hammock)
Lancashire (Although I saw it in a birth announcement from the London Telegraph)
Bird (Birdie, yes, Bird? No.)
Renesmee (ew, ew, ew, ew, EWWW)
Katniss (All I hear is 'cat p***')
Essex (anything with 'sex' in it should be off limits)
Best one that isn't on NB that I've seen has got to be Shampayne though.dreaming of a little Kennedy Juliette or Aaron Jacob one day...

I find Lancashire hilarious. And Essex. Just... no. I wonder what else is listed - Glasgow? Newcastle? Shropshire? Peterborough?
I think the Princess Consuella reference is a strong enough pop culture tie for Banana to stay (we could even add Crap Bag? ''If you need a way to remember it, just think of a bag of crap'' I've actually cried of laughter at that scene)
And Camera. Camera is listed on a namesite, as a name. Let's just all take a moment... Camera. Camera.
