I don't like the name or football either but I do think it's amusing how the husband came up with this grin

I'm amazed the mother never googled the name to find out the meaning before using it tbh confused

Surely everyone checks just in case their "unique and romantic" name actually means testicles in some obscure language?

You would have thought so..

Unless the husband told her it meant such and such

I gave my two relatively common names but I still googled their meaning

You know, I'm not a footie fan, but just looking at that name I thought 'it looks odd, is it something backwards?'

Could be worse, she could have had all the team as middle names (as has been inflicted on the child of some MUFC (?) supporter.

How did it take her 2 years? [quote]

It's so obviously Arsenal backwards.

I thought it looked kind of Spanish...

I wonder what smiley I was expecting there? [bemused] [back to sleep]

I thought it had been done by quite a few people? Like Nevaeh

Looprevil is a lovely name too.

Pretty and indicates an evil looper.

grin

Seriously, how could you not notice?

I met a baby about 7-8 years ago with this name, the parents were very proud of it ( mother did know the football link). I can't beleive anyone would not figure out the meaning and the mother should have done her research!
