However, depending on how you pronounce it, it rhymes with names like chastity, so why not? I kind of like it, actually.



There is also the name 1234 pronounced Juan Tutrefir

Naming a human is a heavy burden. With our daughter we tried really hard to hit the middle ground between too common, and just straight-up weird. I think we did pretty well.

For #2 (boy), we're having a harder time.

That being said, I think Abcde is insane and I feel sorry for the poor kid.

My mom wanted to name me Byran. My brother’s name is Hayim, but he goes by Hy. Obviously people greeted him with “Hi, Hy”. He thought that was his name when he was little. I think her plan was to call me By so she could have a Hi Hy and Bye By.

My brother is in the process of adopting a boy. They were at the hospital waiting for an appointment. They would call out "Babyboy" as that is what is on his birth certificate or social security card or something like that.

It's seems that Nmi is a popular middle name.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way

I think it would be cool to have a name of just one letter, like B or J.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I've read that it was intended to be pronounced ab-city, which I do think has a nice sound to it, but wouldn't ever name a child that. I do think ancient Greek names and those out of mythology sound cool.

An advice on naming babies pointed out this very underrated tip. "Think of your Baby's INITIALS. Amanda Shannon Smith sounds like a lovely name at first until you realize her initials are ASS, which is not so lovely sounding anymore. Also Brandon Adam Davidson sounds pretty cool, until you realize his initials are BAD, which isn't all that cool sounding anymore." Good tip.

I've noticed that many websites don't allow one-letter names.

Starbucks is one of those that do, so when I pick up my advance order, it has one letter on the name sticker.
