    Arlo's growing in popularity currently. Parents are either fans of Woodie Guthrie's son Arlo, sports commentator Arlo White or The Good Dinosaur.

    I knew someone called "Scott Scott".

    I thought Arbie's was a restaurant in America

    It is. Well, Arby's is. Sandwich place, rival to Subway.

    I wasn't sure. I'm going off Homer Simpson saying "If I can keep down Arby's, I can keep down you" to a space marshmallow

    My nephews best friend is called Arlo and his sisters called Ada.

    My boyfriends daughters called Teegan (her mama a full on charver)
     
  7. The general chav trend is giving your bairn a Christian name that's a surname.

    Connor
    Taylor
    Mackenzie
    Wilson
    Dylan

    Ada's an old name that's made a comeback. Popular with scientists thanks to this woman:

    Jesus wept. Did he not get any say in then naming of the child?

    Dylan is far more common as a Christian name than a surname TBH.
     
  11. And surnames come from Christian names (sometimes).

    No one bats an eye if you call your child William or Bryan, but they are both surnames, but call your kid Taylor or Mackenzie and you are a full on chav. (Supposedly). I don't think it is surname as Christian name that is chavvy just some names are considered a bit chavvy.

    To be fair, I can only think of one person who's surname is Bryan

    Fair comment.

    The Americans do come up with some daft names for kids. If the court protects the kid from ridicule by blocking a name, that's perfectly understandable.

    I went to school with a lass called Pinky Lee. Up until sixth form, you can guess the piss takes.

    People grew up and it mostly went away.

    Some of them might be a bit dull and uninspiring but none of the above are “Stupid Bairns Names.”

    Give me a Graeme or Brian over a Kai or Logan any day.
