I have boy girl twins that are three months old now. Their names are Fox and Dana. I think they're fine names and suit them well but almost everyone smirks or out right laughs when they find out their names.

Um, why? Am I missing something?

Dana is quite nice

No idea. Why don't you ask around? I'm sure the truth is out there.

Just out of curiousity OP, what are their middle names? It's not Mulder and Scully, is it? grin

All names ok when you get used to them. Some names take longer than others to warm to.

If I heard Fox I'd think it was a cute nickname you gave your child. Are you serious?

This is a wind up grin

I guess you're all right, there is truth somewhere. I think I might just ask next time someone smirks or laughs and be upfront about it.

"what the fuck is so funny?"...that kind of thing.
