    Had one last night - my first awful name. It breaks my heart... The baby did pass, and I'm almost relieved that he didn't have to stay in the home.... The mom was + for everything under-the-sun...

    Baby's name: Cocaine Lucifer.

    I agree with you. How tragic. But at least the poor baby won't have to live in an unhealthy environment.

    When I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, in my 1st trimester my hubby and I were going through boy names and girl names. If we had a girl he wanted her name to be Amber Sabrina. If it was a boy, Adam Sebastian. Neither set of names are bad, except that our last name starts with an "S". Don't worry folks! I am a good mommy. Neither of my daughters have THOSE initials!!!
    I was leaning more towards Megan for our 1st born but that got taken off the list as well! Thank God too b/c once she hit Pre-K she would have been a "Megan" in the same classroom as Kaigan and Reghan! Yes, those are the correct spellings of those little girls. Nope, not related!

    when i was born, another mother wanted to name her baby something horrible (i've forgotten just what) and the state refused to register the birth certificate with the name. was that not quite legal back then or do they simply not do that any more?

    does anyone know how to pronounce the name eamon? long e, maybe? we have a new baby in our family, located about 2000 miles away, and none of is quite sure how to pronounce his name correctly.

    dumb, huh? the parents got really offended when we all asked how to pronounce their first baby's name two years ago.

    the irish pronunciation is "ay-mon." rhymes with damon. i've never heard it said any other way.

    can't understand why anyone would be offended that you asked how to pronounce a not-so-common name. unless they were interpreting your inquiry as a dig for choosing it.

    here is a link to a website about eamon de valera a prominent figure in irish politics for more than 50 years:
