Births and names 7-OCT-06

By Kerces 7 October 2006 35

There was rather slim pickings in the boganic name stakes amoung Canberra’s newest residents this week.

In fact, I could only find one young lad: Kaide Lloyd White.

I am glad the citizens of the ACT are mostly giving their children sensible names.

What’s Your opinion?

Hahaha this is so funny….I constantly marvel at the boganity of baby names I see around the place. Anything named after a US state dooms the baby to a life of ugg boots and V8 Holdens…Montana, Dakota, Indiana…

“I would have called myself Indiana…”

Indiana was the dog’s name!

My friend is due to have her 1st child in 2 1/2 weeks. I’ve told her about not using bogan names. She laughed her arse off.

YAY for the LittleGit!

Sorry, it is terribly bogan. The Kiwis have a lock on boganity on occasion as well. Sonny Bill, Danyon, Zinzan and Jonah are some of their classics that spring to mind.

Pogue is Gaelic for ‘kiss’ from memory. Don’t see many Pogue O’Reilly’s around

Yes Cushla is a real name and not bogan at all and although rare I currently work with a kiwi lass named Cushla.

For its etymology look here

It would prolly be bogan-tastic if you spelt it ‘Bellah Royyse’, otherwise, I reckon it’s kinda nice.

fair enough Danman 🙂 and thats exactly why I named my cutie little doggie Bella as it means beautiful in Italian

vg 2:33 pm 09 Oct 06

I have a dog named Bella.

Just stating it, nothing more

yeah the history of one’s family name that can be dug up can be very interesting.

Danman 1:00 pm 09 Oct 06

Bling bling – Cheers – but Bella it stays – If people wanna say we named her after x or y’s dog – fair enough – It means Beautiful in Italian and thats enough meaning for me and my other 1/2 – Rose being my mothers name – it works out quite well.

i vote for keeping the surnames.

when the kid googles itself in 20 years, they might be pleasantly surprised.

in any case, if the name is published in the canberra times why not post it here ?

seepi 12:37 pm 09 Oct 06

I vote for droping the surnames too.
