To be fair, that is a terrible name for a child.

If you were saying that Stardust, Yourmajesty, and Rainbow are otherwise unobjectionable names as long as they’re spelled conventionally, you’re already light years ahead of most of the public in terms of open-mindedness to unusual names, so *shrug*.

I completely agree! I had a nurse hug me after having my son because I named him William. Hours before he was born a woman named her daughter Princess Riyliegh (Riley) and the nurse was horrified… I feel for the children because no one is going to pronounce their name correct in their entire life. 

 

Also, I read that “unique” names make it difficult to get jobs. Typically an employer will choose the name Tiffany over Tiphaney or however you want to do that. 

 

I enjoy old fashion spellings of names, but I also love old fashioned names in general so I am a stickler when I see names spelled like a 4 year old did it.

@ChellFish22:  If she is getting offended this early in the process she will be in for a world of hurt if she actually names her kid that! My FH would never allow anything so crazy and pretty sure my mother would kill me. I love Rayne but FH vetoed.

@Pixienickie:  Our daughter (if she didn’t magically turn into a boy weeks before the due date…haha) was going to have the middle name Rain. I love nature and nature inspired names so this just was so perfect to me. However, once we found out that we were actually expecting a boy he got his family name instead. Oh well, we could always try for a girl when we are ready! 

I loved the name Aurora also. My step dad said Aurora Rain sounded like a porn name though :/ Haha

Stardust? Really? I hope she’s joking. If not, don’t feel bad. You will most certainly not be the first or last to make her feel strange over her name choice.

@akkaer1:  Too many ro’s in Aurora Rain! I end up saying Aroro, haha! FH is letting my have Rose because I love it and it is his mother’s middle name so half win.

@ChellFish22:  LOL, funny you should mention the Kristen spelling. I know a girl named ‘Kirstin’ but she spells it Kyerstyn. I don’t even know why her mom did that to her, but every time I think of her name I think Key-year-stin. Hopefully this chick isn’t serious about naming her kid Stardust. I know a Star Albright (terribly punny) and there was also a Starsha in my sister’s grade. Her nickname was Starship.

Why would you put “dust” in your kids name?  If she’s offended now, she can explain to “dust” why all the kids pick on them.

@ChellFish22:  I think she was just kidding. 🙂

I had a miscommunication like this once. Here’s the story, just for fun:

 

Friend: I’m raising cute little bunny rabbits!

Me: nom nom nom!

Friend: *disappears from Facebook*

Me: Oh no! She’s one of those vegan animal lovers and now she hates me!


We were close enough that I called her a few weeks later. She actually had previously been vegan, which I knew but… It turned out that she was actually planning on raising them to sell for meat, haha! But her large dog ate them first. The Facebook deletion was her whole account, the timing was coincidental.
