    Is this name for a boy or a girl? Either way, I’m not a huge fan of the name.

    Not a huge fan of the name, but that is just personal preference. If you guys like it, go for it!

    People will spell it “Denim” for his/her (?) whole life.  I would really avoid this one.

    My first thought was den-ham. I’m guessing he’ll be correcting spelling and pronounciation his whole life.

    not to mention I think most people would pronounce it Den-ham, once he’d say no it’s denim people would say “life the jeans”  100% guarentee.  I have a name like that.  I always get “like the ???” I glare at them.

    Please don’t!

    As a middle name, I think it would be great. As a first name, the denim thing would get me.
