Re: Parents that give kids "special" names...

My kids name mean

Conqueror of the sea - in Italian
Gift - in Hindi
Godess of Victory - in Greece

And they sound all very nice. If someone cannot pronounce it properly, you just keep correcting. It's ok. People will learn.

A name has lots to do with the person attached - it's a unity. It's not that silly names provide a base for bullying.

In my school was a Roswitha - a rather old fashioned name (her grandmother's by the way) - but she was such a cool chick that no one ever
thought of saying something silly.
