It seems the name Christian is seeing a surge in use for recently born babies. According to an article in Cosmopolitan Magazine the first 3 months of 2013 has seen the name use TRIPLED.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Doms and subs, I am all in for a good time, anyone that knows me can testify to the fact that I am a pretty laid back and easy-going person. While I understand the fact that EL’s books may have led to an ‘AHEM’ increase in baby making recently, do you really want your son or daughter (yes, apparently the name Christian can be used for both sexes) to come to you when they are around 6 or 7 and ask who are they named after and why?
I know that I was named after my mother, who was named after someone who impacted my grandmother’s life positively. To have to say to little Christian ” son/daughter, your mom/dad and I named you after a character in a book that got our engines running so hot that we were banging like bunnies after Easter is not something you want your children to have to hear.
Imagine this, your kid is in his first day of school, in a class where he has to be called Christian K. S. because there are so many Christians in the class that they have to be called with their middle and last name initials. What a cluster!
Use names that mean something positive to you. If you insist that the name be from the characters in a book, then why not mix it up a little, make it your own, like Eric Steele (sounds like a good porn name to me) a combination of a take on EL’s name and Ana’s last name.
Remember, each and every kid will have their own personalities, likes and dislikes, and at some point in life have to deal with other people calling them out on them. Do you really want to add to the pile?
