    How does the board feel about lilah or lyla. Normal or slightly unique but pretty or Lakyn level or just plain stupid

    Not the worst for Iyla, still very Game of Thrones-esque though.

    Definitely a normal name. I knew an old lady named Lyla when I was a kid.

    not sure if you’re seriously asking if Lyla is a weird name. It’s a pretty name that doesn’t belong itt. It’s British and means Island Beauty. People can been named other things than Henry John Linda and Elisabeth.

    Guys I think he is writing a capital i. Not a lowercase L.

    In that case yeah it's weird.

    makes me think it’s short for Delilah. Which makes me think of this banger…




    And also the late night terrestrial radio advice woman and ‘Sampson and Delilah’ from the Bible.

    Lilah short for Delilah -- ok I like that.

    He still didn't clear up the capitalization thing though. Lowercase L's or uppercase i's???

    Would be better if it was a Whalers player, but I don't think Hartford is too bad of a first name as far as it goes

    Is it really an ok name if the first thing in everyone’s mind is that you named your child after a city in Connecticut? Plus names with ford in them are last names not first names.

    This doesn’t really make sense. There are tons of names that are both surnames and given names.

    Crew Jaxlee... We have another friend that's expecting around the end of the year and they've already landed on the name Crew. I thought Crew was strange but I guess if you follow it up with a middle name like Jaxlee, Crew isn't that bad.

    those were lower case “L”’s, please excuse my lack of capitalization. I don’t think it’s super weird but I can’t think of anyone with the name, just wanted to put it to the test
