My wife suggested Broughton for a boy. Honestly, I'd drown myself.

I put October in a story. I think she's sort of enjoying herself there.

Rupert. RUPERT!

The one that horrifies me is Jaxon, which sounds like a hip hop/funk crossover band but is a very popular boy's name.

I on a course about infographics several weeks back and one of the things we were working on was graphic on naming trends. No one could figure out Jaxon, it just seemed de novo stupid.

Back-formation from Jax in Sons of Anarchy, perhaps?

Squinting at the names on the terminal-thing at the pub earlier revealed among the waiting staff an Olivia, a Georgia, a Wyllie and a Liberty.  Well, it is Leafy Surrey.  Also a Matt and a Louis.  And someone who could have been either Stan or Sian.

I thought "Poppy" was the female equivalent.  However, I am stealing "jbex of Sian", 4 teh lulz.

Poppy did go on to replace Lucifer as regent of Hell.

See, Lucifer would be a good name for the boy. The demons got all the best names. Oh, Astaroth, look what a mess you've made again, you've made mommy really rather angry.

Canadadadadaian crooner Justin Bieber has a half brother yclept  Jaxon. This may have influenced the popularity of the name.

The granddaughter of the manager of the Battle Mountain Super 8 has a name pronounced "Caitlin" so natch I assumed it was spelled that way too.  No.  Katelyn.

One of the constancies of American naming is the inconstancy of Caitlins.

That and their pronunciation of Siobhan and other Gaelic names. I'm sure I've mentioned my travels in the company of two Irish ladies of ill-repute and names most unpronounceable.

Standing next to a Grainne while she was being paged by The Mgt at Denver airport was one of the highlights of that particular trip.

This is about a year ago but has stuck with me - overhead some parents in the park calling their kid Guinevere.

If that wasn't bad enough, IIRC from the Arthurian legend, Arthur's wife was supposed to be exceptionally beautiful. This kid was never going to live up to that description.

My wife has some friends whose surname is Gow.  Their child is named Tristan and so I have always referred to him as the shake it up baby.

It gets worse.  There are more than a few Jaxxons.  Let's hope for their sake that none of them ever live or work on a lower-ground floor.

Jaxxon is the child of good ol' Southern boys and girls. They named him after the state capital of Mixxixxippi. For similar reasons, Auxtin and Louix (...iana) are also popular down in Dissie. That should say, in Dicksie. No, I mean...

If I were to have children (which is unlikely) a boy would be called something like David and a girl, Claire. I cannot be doing with the pretentious names people give their kids these days. And people who give their kids traditional names, but spell them in an absurd way can fuck right off....
