I like interesting and unusual names. I think people need to be more creative. At camp this week, there were 5 boys named Alex and one girl -out of 100 kids. So when someone says something about "Alex", instead of immediately being able to picture the person and process the information, you had to ask which one. Two even had the same last name so we had to distinguish by grade.

If you create a new name, I think it's helpful if it's either already a word, or is something that's intuitive to spell, and something that isn't inapproriate like Vagina or Toiletbrush but beyond that, have fun! And maybe kid the kid a more normal middle name they can use if they treally don't like being unique.
