I'm talking about the thirties and forties.I have an elderly great aunt who lives in Sligo and she confirmed this.Also I actually seen James's passport and that was his name.Maybe it was just a certain locality that it was used.Have you ever heard of churching by the way,my aunt told me about it and I thought it was terrible.

Uhoh! I had a horrible feeling in a thread like this that there might be somebody with one of those names, but dismissed it as paranoia. Sorry?? Basset hounds are adorable, though, so I'm sure he could pull off a Bartholomew.

My dads name was Fahrney, thankfully I wasn't a jr.
Hey sorry about that. I wasn't going for anything personal just going with the flow. My name is Bob and I would not care to name my kids after me either. Actually my Dad wanted to name me Leslie after a close friend of his. I guess I dodged bullet on that one, but I might have grown up mean and tough like the boy named Sue.

Re: First names you would never call a child of yours

I have a friend who is a paramedic. He told me a story of a woman going into labor and them having to pick her up and rush her to the hospital but ended up delivering the baby in the ambulance. Along the way she heard them use the word "placenta" and thought that was a beautiful name for her new baby girl. He said they explained what it was and she didn't care she was still naming her baby that.

He was a serious guy so I believe what he said. And by the way, his name is Leslie. lol

Re: First names you would never call a child of yours

I would avoid these - This is no BS but i knew a spanish family who named their 2 daughters.

Oldest - Talia
youngest - Genna

I would avoid this combination at all cost.

All I'm picturing is Leslie Neilson in that ambulance...... Him playing the straight man. Sounds like a scene from one of his movies.

Re: First names you would never call a child of yours

My thing is not necessarily names, but the SPELLING of them! Parents try to get 'creative' and it's always a mess. What's wrong with traditional spelling?

I knew of a girl whose name is pronounced "Kennedy" however the spelling was Cenadie - WTF?? Or changing the letter 'I' to a 'Y' - Ugh!
Mykul = Michael
Kareynne = Karen

Makes my eyes bleed.
