When it came around to naming my daughter, my wife and I thought about this topic, i.e. her name is going to reflect upon her in some fashion. So, we decided to stick to more traditional names, while at the same time choosing a name that we could easily use as a nickname while she was still young. My wife's name is Angie...just Angie...not Angela, not Angelique, just Angie. So I always tease her about the fact that she's gonna be an 80-year-old woman named "Angie". It's just funny to me to think about that. Also, I have 3 sisters-in-law, Daritza, Rathoyka and Sheila. Her mother thought she was giving them names similar to Russian supermodels, but somehow didn't realize they'd be living in the US...not Russia - so these names are just plain weird.
In order to avoid the same naming fiasco with our daughter, what we did was pick out something mature-sounding and traditional, that we could easily nickname. We ended up with Melissa Alexandra. We call her "Misha", which I'm sure will end up evolving into "Mely" once she hits school.
I do wish more parents would think about these things before naming their kids, though. One of my best friends works as a processor for imigration, and some of the names he's told me that people register with are just plain hilarious. The best one, though, or at least the one that's stuck with me is "Female Baby Garcia". Apparently, according to the story the woman told my friend, was that when she was born, her parents, who didn't speak English, thought that the hospital had already given her a name, and since they wanted to give her an American name, they just left it.
