    My mum knew someone who named their kid MJ Toby-James. No, the M and J didn't stand for anything, the initials were literally on his birth certificate.

    She also had a coworker once who couldn't decide whether to name her upcoming baby Wayne or Dwayne. Her surname was Swane. Luckily she married before the kid was born.

    huh. i was under the impression Grey was a fairly oldish name that was "normal" just a bit rare.
    im guess there's some generational/regional stuff afoot here

    I think most of the Greys I know of are 40+, yeah--I can only think of Grey DeLisle and Grey Davis, but they're both older, so it could very well be a generational thing.

    Not the worst I've seen, but I can't help but imagine the lifetime of unfunny jokes: Cinderella.

    At least Cinderella is a timeless and positive cultural reference that people are going to understand the relevance of for the kid’s entire life.

    Lookin’ at you, people who named their kids Khaleesi.

    ... I keep getting spam texts and voicemails addressing me as Johntavious, and my thought has been "what a ridiculous and obviously fake name, who would fall for this" but now I'm not so sure it IS completely fake

    Grief ...

    My brain auto-corrected the name to 'Reighley' which made "Pronounced life rifle" a real record scratch.
