Just thinking Dave..... Dave and Emma.... both very regular names....
My mum and dad... Tom and Mary... had 12 kids and we were mostly (with the exception of the two called after Irish saints or such) named VERY unusual names... which we have spent the whole of our lives spelling or explaining to people where it comes from....
Funny thing is though... the ones that got the very plain
names... called their
kids unusual names
And the ones who had very unusual
names called their kids very plain
And with all them... there is usually a discussion of "Why did you call me such a plain/crazy name?"
Saw this programme tonight... http://www.slate.com/articles/business/ ... _name.htmlhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freakonomics
