    Once knew a dude with Lancelot for a middle name. Man that guy got stick for that. Not proper bullying (I don't think), but for like 2 days we called him Lancelot.

    Anyway, how about James?

    I like to think I'll name my kid "Bog standard name 12", mainly because I feel it'll be more up to them to shape who they'll be rather than being forced to be zany because their name meant they've always stood out.

    I suppose this would be the opposite of what usually happens with X-Com soldier names.

    Don't know if you've hatched yet, but for what it's worth my favorite boy names are:

    Emmanuel
    Inman
    Harlan


    Or that's what I'd name my sons in the off chance there is some sort of nuclear holocaust which causes my boyfriend to mutate and grow ovaries and a uterus, thus allowing me to accidentally knock him him.

    'Dovakhiin' I grant is an appalling name, but I for one am in love with these two characters.

    Your kid either is the kind who can be picked on, or is not. Every kid in the schoolyard fits in the former category save one or two, who are untouchable and in the latter. You actually want him in the former. He will turn out to be an arsehole if part of the latter.

    So what matters isn't avoiding having your kid picked on. It's going to happen at some point. What really matters is how your kid responds to the insults. Odds are his reaction'll be such that he won't become a victim, because most kids don't.


    ...So in that case, you're almost better feeding the bullies the scapegoat of an odd name instead of risk your kid gets exposed to genuinely hurtful insults, based on weight/accent/mom's promiscuity?

    :-|
    Either you were never bullied or you were the type who made it worse for yourself.

    Even a name like mine - Charlie - was enough to get me bullied for having a 'girls name' and it's a gender neutral one. You try to minimize the opportunities for bullying, starting with the name.

    David. Studies show children with common names tend to be happier. For the first sixteen years a unique name is a curse, and after that it blossoms into an interesting story that everyone wants to hear about and you don't want to tell. At least, not after the twentieth time.
