Good evening, my wife like the name Lochlan or Lochlan (same name different spelling) if we have a boy. She is drawn to this name because its unique. I thought it would be best to turn to gd for great advice.

Thanks

Don't saddle your kid with some name it will hate. It might seem cute or trendy now but 30 years from now it might be a burden to the young man.

Tell her to go to the back door, open it, and yell the name at the top of her lungs three times, followed by, "It's dinnnnnnnner time!"

Wait five minutes, then yell the name two more times, followed by, "I'm going to count to three... one... two... IFYOURASSISN'TINHEREBYTHETIMEIREACHTHREEYOURD­ADDYISGONNATANYOURHIDE... THREE."

I always wondered if that was spelled intentionally like that, or if his parents were just too stupid to know how to spell "Alfred."

Don't be a douche. My son Jack is goingto kick Lochlan's ass at least once a week for being named Lochlan. Unless you live in Scotland, then go for it.

yeah go with your wife's choice. if you don't you'll pay for it.

Yes, but there are TWO spelling options.

My wife is out with her friends, otherwise I'd ask her if that name is from some chick book series that's popular now.

If it is, don't do it. Because there'll be millions of kids with that name, like with Twilight.

It is hopeless! You will name him Lochlan, his friends will call him lo-chillin...

Classic names are the best. In 50 years, there will be a large group of Hunters, Dillans and Brittanys heading to retirement homes, like the Dots, Myrtles and Esthers of the past.

I have a nephew Lathan, I think it's nice and unique. Not too weird, but different enough that every one will ask how to spell it. But FWIW everyone asks me how to spell my name, Patty.

Don't forget the shit ton of "Jareds" and "Calebs" born in the 80s and 90s.

Or the fuck ton of "Joshuas."

1. Don't give kid unique name. Kids don't want unique names. They want to fit in with the herd. Besides, how will a unique name fit later when the kid is in the work force? You know how Arfcom makes fun of the outlandish names black folks like to name their kids? Nuff said.

2. Don't give kid a normal name, but fuck up the spelling. Kid will spend the rest of his life correcting people and getting them to spell his correctly. It is a major PITA. In other words, don't even use a slightly uncommon spelling for a normal name.

I have extensive personal experience with #2 (with my first name). I've even been given business cards on the first day of a job, with my name spelled incorrectly, and been told I had to use them.

What exactly are you asking? Which spelling we prefer (you spelled them both the same, by the way)? Or if we like that name at all?

My name is Hunter. I was born in 1981. Guess my parents were ahead of the curve.
Sucked as a kid growing up though. Could never find anything cool with my name on it, now it's everywhere!
I still hate kids with "unique" names. Especially when they are spelled weird.

Reading is fundamental! Marie is my middle name. The problem name is my first name.

My people do scones and rebillion against the English pretty well but we don't have the knack for hotwiring cars like the Welsh do.

You want to name a boy? Two consonants and a vowel.

Ben
Tom
Max

Sorry; I do NOT mean to name him Hint, but watch the video and PLEASE use a Man's name and not what you are planning.
