    I love the weird & uncommon names because my name is Ashley. There are TONS of Ashley's my age & I hate having to write my last name or initial. People can name their kids whatever they want. I like the names Harlow & Sparrow too they're adorable. & for Good Charlotte being a 'terrible' band you couldn't be more wrong.


    I think that it's funny how they didn't capatilize it also! Oh yeah, what happend to not using the Lord's name in vain?? The 'oh my god' statement she used was using it in vain...come on people. A name is just a does not ruin your life nor should you have to spend life defending your name! It is what makes you unique and makes you different from the rest of the crowd. Now a days, that's a good thing. Being different is considered cool!! My name is Kirsten. Even though it stands for itself, most people call me 'Kristen'. It does not bother me. I just say,"yep! That's my name...and I am proud of it."

    No one should judge on what names are given to their children. It's not your's theirs!


    You know what? Forget a comment about the name Sparrow. What I can't figure out is an extreme church freak is on here blabbing about the bible and they didn't even capitalize God. (x


    oh my god, i am horrified. everyone knows that naming kids after birds is forbidden in the bibe! i mean, John 10.1! everyone knows that! praise jesus! And im praying for that family as well!


    It's unique, you gotta give them that and it's really nobody's business so they shouldn't have to justify it.


    really sparrow?that boy"s gonna live with that 4 the rest of his life..shame that they r such uncreativexP


    that's cruel. My parents spelt my name all weird and its torture having it spelt wrong every single time. and thats just spelling. sucks to be him.


    No problem. Totally agree w/ you on the terrible "punk" band thing, btw. :)


    I'll mention that to them Vanetta, thanks :) I'm almost certain though, it was just the case of naming her Livia instead of Olivia because they liked the sound of it better. Still a pretty name though, just frustrating for when she grows up I'd imagine.


    Just wanted to mention that Livia is its own name. It's based on the Roman name Livius. (Unless the parent specifically took Olivia and chopped off the O.)
