I'm pregnant with a girl. I've been tossing names around and the one I consistently come back to is "Lennon" People have been putting down the name but I really like it.

Do you like the name Lennon for a baby girl?
>>
Sounds good to me. Apparently the name means "dear one" or something so it's not a bad name.
>>
I automatically think John Lennon when I hear the name.
>>
Personally I don't like it for a girl because I instantly think it's a boy's name. But, if you like who cares.
>>
No dude, that's retarded. I don't want to sound harsh but it's a bad idea to give your kid a special snowflake name. Think about how it will look on a resume, or on a college application. People get judged on everything all the time, don't give them another reason to judge your daughter. If you want a similar sounding but more socially acceptable name, maybe try Lynn, Lenore or Lena.
>>
>>16532740
Sounds like a sjw name. Name her something feminine.
>>
>>16532756
I disagree as a guy with the name Jacob. Too many people with your name is a pain in the ass.
>>
if I were a girl named lennon I probably would hate my name
>>
>>16532760
>>16532756
But I also agree Lennon is a bad idea for a girl.

I think of John Lennon >>16532750 too.

If you really want to keep it, at least make it feminine as Lenna.
>>
>>16532760
I prefer to just blend in and fly under the radar.
Matt here.

>>16532756
I like unique names. I'm a teacher and I have 4 "Calebs" and 3 "Alexanders" in a class of 25. Normal names are bland.
>>
>>16532756
I don't think Lennon is too far into "special snowflake" territory. I don't think that name would be judged.

Or linen.

>>16532772
I'm also a teacher and I have a class with eight kids who have the -aiden/ayden names and it drives me up the fucking wall. Also all the Sophias and Olivias.

It's one thing if you want to have an original name, and it's not like Lennon is that common, but I just don't personally think it's a good decision to get too creative with names. It's something that's going to follow your child until after you're dead (unless they change their name).

My parents gave me what I consider to be a white trash name, and I recently had it legally changed to something similar but more dignified. It was a huge pain in the ass and I wish they had more sense.
>>
>>16532795
No
>>
>>16532816
What was your name before/after?
>>
>>16532818
Yeeahhhh
>>
>>16532823
I'm not posting my specific name on 4chan because I'm not a fucking moron, but think double-barreled stripper sounding name like Tammy-Mae or Crystal-Lynn. I changed it to a similar sounding name, like if it was Misty I changed it to Michelle. I can't give specifics.
>>
>>16532740
+1 to Lena/Lenna
Lennon sounds masculine to me. It's not a unisex name, double checked on multiple places online. I don't think you should make your daughter the first to try and change that tradition.

>>16532848
>because I'm not a fucking moron
because I'm a scarredy cat*, there's like 100-400 people on this board. No one will know you and even if they do why care
>>
maybe if you had a male child, but for a girl, no. the recent trend of androgynous names is disgusting frankly
pick something less common from mythology, literature or history. that way, your child will have a name which is both special and appropriate to her gender
>>
>>16532750
Yes i also thought of john lennon as well. Most ppl would. So no, its bad for a girl.
>>
>>16532848
Was it Amber-Starr?
Fancy-Lynn?
Lacy-Sue?
Crystal-Jade?
Brandy-Wyne?
>>
no, abort and try for a boy
>>
>>16532740
as everybody said: not for a girl.

im against giving a child a unique name. because they grow up in a bubble where they think: im special, everyone loves me because im unique. its better to give your child a normal name and let them BE unique and stand out from these unique bubble kids.
>>
>>16533003
>because they grow up in a bubble where they think: im special, everyone loves me because im unique.
Do they?
>>
>all evidence and research shows that people with ''unique'' names are the least successful and the unhappiest
>kids with strange names are ALWAYS bullied in school, no exceptions
>not a single benefit of having a strange name
Yeah, go ahead. Name her ''Lennon'' the sour Lemon.
It's not like you came here for advice, all you want is validation and people to say that it's a great name.
>>
>>16533003
uniqueness is not always a good thing

lots of people have unique names that sound awful and they hate it themselves
>>
>>16532772
Both of those are normal names. And the thing about all Alexanders is that they will always just shorten it to Alex.
>>
>>16533003
>they grow up in a bubble where they think: im special, everyone loves me because im unique
That's fucking retarded. It's the exact opposite.
Kids with weird names are the least happy because they get bullied and called names in school. Their self-esteem is destroyed before they even turn 10.
>>
That's a bad name, and you should feel bad for thinking it's OK.

Lennon was an utter cunt who was born with a massively creative spark, shit all over his friends who helped him delvelop it, then got what he had coming to him at the end, but his self-absorption was so utterly universal that his shitty way of living was enough justification that his cunt of a wife was able to prove that he had abandoned his child before he died, so the miserable chink cunt kept the money to herself with Lennon's blessing.

Fuck him. And fuck you for wanting to bestow a name marking that legacy on an innocent child. I hope your uterus falls out.
>>
>>16533053
Chill. Go back to tumblr SJW
>>
>>16533053
Okay, this is a little harsh but it's true. John Lennon beat his wife and was kind of an all around asshole. Google it if you don't believe us.

OP, if you're still here, can I ask you a question? How old are you? Is the baby's father still in the picture, or are you raising her on your own? If he's around, what does he think about the name?

I'm 26. The father is around but he's military so he goes for half a year at a time. We already have one son named Hendrix. He doesn't mind the name but doesn't love it like I do.
>>
>>16533065
John Lennon was an SJW. Like most SJWs he would tell people to support socialism, check their privilege etc while in his private life he was just a hypocrite asshole who would get violent.
>>
>>16533073
You have the worst taste in names and music too.
>>
>>16533073

Okay, so I really don't agree with your decision to name your children after famous musicians because it makes you look like the white trash military wife dependapotomus character, but at the end of the day, this is a decision that you need to think long and hard about.

How old were you when you had Hendrix? Whose decision was it to name him after a musician? Was it yours or your husband's?
>>
>>16533074

lennon was a reknowned wife beater and racist and homophobe his hippie shtick was for money and fame
>>
>>16533020
I have a normal name and I hate it.
>Samantha
>Sammy
I prefer Sam. If you call me Sammy I cringe so fucking hard. "Sam" is unisex so there's really no pressure.

OP perhaps you can give your child a name that has a mini unisex nickname within it, to give a comforting fall back plan if they don't like their full name.
>>
>>16533104
Agreed with this. Or stick a "nox" at the end. Lennox is a nicer name and they can use Nox as a nickname if they don't like Lennon
>>
>>16533068
>harsh but it's true
This anon is right

>>16533071
>Check your priviledge tOOoooooOOOoo
kek

>>16533073
>Hendrix
THAT'S COOL BUT OMFG

>>16533081
Hendrix made some cool stuff.
>>
>>16533089
I was 22 when I had him. It was my choice, he didn't really care what the name was as long as he was healthy.
>>
Not OP but what musicians would you name your kid after?
>>
>>16533090
As are most SJWs. NO ONE has claimed that SJWs are consistent in their ideology.
SJWs are the most racist and sexist people in the western world.
>>
>>16533127

yeah i don't think we're using words in the same context here
>>
>>16533118
I'm just going to be honest with you, I don't think you're interested in getting our opinions on this. I think that you were hoping that we would validate your decision to name your baby Lennon. A vast majority of this thread has stated that they don't think it's that good of an idea for a lot of different reasons.

Can you tell us why you wanted to name your baby Hendrix, and why you want to name your current baby Lennon? What do you think is appealing about the name Lennon/the musician?
>>
>>16533125
I wouldn't, because I'm not trailer trash.
>>
>>16533130
What the fuck do you think an SJW is?
Protip: all of them are racist and sexist even though they claim to be against racism and sexism
>>
>>16533125
Personally would not name my child after someone famous. It would give the child a sense of "Gee I have this name, now I have to live in this person's image, whatever it may be".

And it's highly likely that the child may want to grow up THEIR way or do THEIR thing, not what their name pre-dictates for them to do. I say give a child a normal name with a comforting fall-back nickname along with it. No special snowflake shit. And let them choose their own destiny.

>>16533137
Seconding this. Just think OP came here to validate her opinion.
>>
>>16533125
If a boy I'd call him Guy.
It's such a simple generic name, but it's uncommon. It's a name that carries the same punch as normie names like Chad and Rob.
If a girl I'd just give her some top 100 most common name because women can't make music.
>>
>>16533125
Something normal like "Paul" (Paul McCartney) or "George" (George Harrison) if she wanted to go the Beatles route. Something that looks like an average name but has bigger meaning
>>
>>16532756

Is right. Fuck you doin naming your kid gotdamn "Lennon"? You know how much bullying she'll go through before she inevitably changes her name and resents your dumb ass for it?

I like Lynn a lot honestly.
>>
>>16533175
addendum: If you name her "Lennon" her nickname WILL be "John Lennon". I would stake money on it
>>
>>16533180
John Lennon
Lenor
Lemon
Lean On
The Beatle
The Cockroach
>>
I just had a girl and named her Sabriel.
All of the family members pronounce her name differently but I used to work at a daycare and I know its as simple as telling the teachers the name and how to say it. Once she learns to talk she can correct the relatives who all want to put their own spin on her name.

If you go with Lennon, at least give her a nice plain feminine middle name. I know Saby can always change and call herself by her middle name if she hates Sabriel.
>>
>>16533175
Lynn is cool thats my middle name
>>
>>16533158
Guy fieri
>>
>>16533202
I've met too many fat southern women with that name for it to be cool.
>>
>>16533206
You know what's a dope ass special snowflake name?

Iona.

That's what I'll name my child if they're a girl.
>>
man all this hate for unique names. What do you anons think of the name Luxlynn for a girl? I'm assuming hate. I've been juggling Luxlynn and Lynn for awhile.
>>
>>16532750
But john was a cool guy. You know if your OK with hippies.
>>
>>16532740
>Do you like the name Lennon for a baby girl?
no
what are you? some hippie beatle fan?
>>
>>16532740
>lennon
>baby name
this is bait
>>
I wish you people would stop using retarded names for your children.

Pick a traditional Christian name and by done with it. Sarah. Elizabeth. Eva. Meredith. Evelyn. Victoria. Anne. Etc

But whatever you do, for the love of God, don't name your kid after the King of Hippies.

{traditional first name] {a name of one of your family members] {surname}

If your grandmother is named Alice, name your daughter Elizabeth Alice or something like that. Maybe use your great-grandmothers name.
