Just as long as it isn't Aiden, Aydin, or how ever the hell you wanna spell that wussy name. I'm so sick of that name. You have the show "Sex in the City" & single moms everywhere to thank for that name. Give him a strong, manly name. You have the daughter; it's daddy's turn. I've always liked the names Erwin & Luke. Those names sound like guys you'd want in your corner in a bar brawl. Also never been a bad looking Luke in history. Fact.
"What a horrible night to have a curse."
"Please bury me with all my stuff, because you know it's mine..."
"Passersby were amazed by the unusually large amounts of blood."
I'm not sure how unique names necessarily equal "unique messes". People with unique names like Obama, Condoleezza, Conan, and Peyton seem to have done pretty well for themselves. Conversely, I'm sure at least a few Joes, Toms, and Jims have seen the inside of a psychiatrist's office.
A unique name might result in some teasing - but so might a unique physical feature, a unique habit, or a unique set of family circumstances. Whatever you pick, it's just a name, and not a guarantee that the kid will become an emotional basketcase.
I'm not saying the name itself correlates to the messed up kid. However it does seem a higher proportion of kids with uniques names also have the kind of parents who overcoddle and generally set up their kids for failure in life. A client of mine who has a kid with a unique name has spent the last 6 months trying to get this "unique" kid an internship. He's a junior in college and she can't understand why nobody she asks is offering him an internship. Nevermind he's had an underaged DUI that mommy couldn't get dropped, or that mommy actually calls his profs.
My point is too many people think there kid will be unique because they start them off with a unique name, and can't accept the fact their kid may just be average, or even below average.
