my twins are called blake and bentley. when we were in the shop down the road the other day i was telling a lady what there names where and she well was very (shock) !! and said that she just had to go and walked off! does any one know why she did this?!

Well they're not exactly Oliver and Charlie are they? If you deviate from even the top 20 then you are likely to get comments! I have an Isaac and have had some very quizzical looks (and questions re heritage, I guess implying we might have Jewish roots?)!

So long as you love the names then who cares what someone else thinks!

I think you know exactly why she did, and I don't believe for a moment that you are genuine.

Good try but not keeping up the pretence on this one. You should have spelt it Issac or Isaak to be convincing!

Sure it's not spelt Bentlay?
