Should we call him Friday?

Or should we call her Farmer (our cousins named their daughter Farmer)?

I personaly think it is weird and stupid and if it was simply unusual, like my kids, they all have Biblical names, but this is just weird. Read on.

What to name a child? In Italy, a court can decide - Yahoo! News

I agree with the mom. This is way too Big Brother's Watching for me. If people can name their child after fruit, why not days of the week? Tuesday Weld willingly and legally changed her name. That's wrong that the government butts in like that.

I don't see a problem with the name if that's what you are asking. People have named their children what they wanted to for centuries. My friend has children named after the cities they were born in (traveling military), if that's not frowned on why should naming your child after a day of the week? I don't exactly find it "stupid." When I named my daughter 16 years ago people told me I shouldn't give her a boy's name, now it's a popular girls name too. So was I stupid or a trend setter? I prefer to think the latter.

The government needs to get their crap together and not worry about what
people name their kids.

I don't know what your daughter name is, and believe me my daughters have names that are plenty strange, but to name a girl Framer is a bit odd, don't you agree. Okay, so I think naming child Friday is also weird. Well, city's name should be in the same category. maybe I'm wrong. But that is just my feelings.

Uh oh, I don't think I can comment on this since my son's name is Fisher. One daughter's name is Mandolin. I guess I wanted them to have names that meant something to me at the time or that I thought would be unique - not be one hundreds with the same name. My daughter likes her name because she's never met anyone with the same name. Your cousin's daughter may feel the same way.

Oh, Terry, how did I know you would be like me, unable to really weigh in. My daughter is Kasie pronounced like Casey. At the time I named her she was the only girl named Kasie in the school. Now, 15 years later, she's met one other girl with that name. What's wrong with Farmer?

Along the lines, watch what you name multiple children. My daughter's art teacher had a son and named him Joseph. Wasn't thinking when they named their daughter Mary. So they now have Mary and Joseph. All that's missing is Jesus and the family is complete. LOL

Why would they make fun of the name Mandolin? And I'll bet she's already in school.
