Do you think a name can effect the sort of person a child grows into?.. It's a massive decision for parents and its funny when people discuss what different names mean to them as they can be such polar opposites.
My daughter is Kitty Jasmine White ( a name I consider quite feminine, ignore the White bit) and she is into Toy Story, Cars, being a Pirate or a Superhero and is crap at ballet and couldn't care what she is dressed in each day at age 4. This does not shock me in the slightest as I grew up under a race car helping my Dad's mechanic fix stuff and owned a skateboard and BMX ( I had lots of Hello Kitty, Little Twin Stars and a few Care Bears but I think that was as girly as I got) I reckon they just wear a name not develop it.
My Son is Harrington Kingsley White (he's just a normal little fella but at only 2.5yrs we will see)... I actually think his name sounds like a pompus aristocrat if you use it in its full version but the Harrington is my Maiden name, the Kingsley is his Dad's family middle name (5 other brothers with the same) so we love his name as it forms our new little family. Ironically as he gets called Hazzle and Harry all the time I think his actual USED name sounds like a naughty schoolboy which I fear will be much closer to the truth!!
What are your kids names? Do their personalities match them?
