Would you automatically think Tory pm? It's the only name both dh and I like (baby not coming until August) yet a few days after deciding we liked the name I realised... Am vehemently anti-Tory though don't find DC as objectionable as some of them. I'm pretty sure it would be a non- issue when he is older and DC is no longer pm, and my good friends would know without asking that there was no link, but I can't fathom the idea of people that don't know me that well thinking I named him after a Tory pm when I definitely didn't!!!!
My son's name is Cameron and I simply assume anyone who associates it with the PM is a bit dim - especially given the PM's name is David. Mind you, they equally tie with those who think he's named after a half-Cuban girl who became an actress.
DD is Cameron, so naturally I love it. Here in Scotland few would make the link as its a very traditional name. On a visit to London a few months after she was born, almost every airport worker we came across asked if she was named after the PM.... Um no.
Round here (Devon) it is a name on a par with Jordan & Brandon. I wouldn't associate it with DC & wouldn't think of it being Scottish either - just the little blighter who's at the root of all the trouble in the school.
don't worry about it. David Cameron is such an insipid twunt that no one will remember him for anything other than his big shiny cheeks (wish Spitting Image would come back!!). I like the name - and when I was looking at names for DD - it took weeks for me to make the connection between loving the name Maggie - and the bitch in blue who made the eighties so miserable!! (went with a diff name in the end). I think my miner uncle would have had words!!
