I do like the middle name better, even though I can't pronounce it. :rolleyes:

Don't laugh but a fave unusual name of mine has always been Gypsy. I'm surprised no celeb has used that one yet. :lol:

I imagine Lil' Jemz to be all dark haired and chubby cheeked with an adorable smile like his dad.

I once knew a Spaniel called Gypsy..... Tainted forever in my mind!!

I'm sure little Sophocles will grow up an absolute charmer and nobody will dare laugh at his name. There will people dreaming of his name
Sophocles, Sophocles......
I can't picture Sophocles becoming an accountant however.
Nor can I imagine Apple as the CEO of a major company
Edit: oh wait, Apple could become CEO of Apple?

I go with "Soph" - that you can call out in a supermarket looking for your kid!
Or maybe "Clete" (for SophoCles), a sports nickname - Clete Boyer did very well with it.

Whatever they decide to call him on a daily basis, I'm sure he'll do just fine. I have faith his parents will bring him up with loads of confidence, playground bullies be damned. :thumb:

I hope so because kids can be really mean sometimes. I used to get teased in school all the time and June isn't nearly as unusual as Sophocles.

I'm inclined to believe, like Val, that he'll end up being called by his middle name. It's SO beautiful.

But the whole being bullied on the playground because of his name? Pfft. I think people worry too much about that kind of thing. The truth is that if you don't have a name that a bully can make something out of, he'll find something else to tease you about. 'Tis the inevitable, immutable law of the playground. No sense getting tied up in knots about it.

And as Nancy points out, a healthy and robust sense of self-confidence will see him through any of that stuff. Also, remember that there's a lot more variety in names kids have these days than when we were climbing the monkey bars. Having an unusual name just isn't that remarkable when everybody else has one, too.

Nah, I ain't worried about the little guy. He'll be fine.

The fact that the names are both family names gives them an immediate pass in my mind. My grandfather's name was Herman, and if I'd had a kid, I would have wanted to give him that name somehow, despite not being the most common name these days.

I was the only Alison in my classes when I was younger. Although it's not that strange a name, kids will latch onto the tiniest thing to play with a name. I was Alison Wonderland at one point, and later they just put weird emphasis on the last syllable: AliSON. Really, kids can create something out of nothing. Do I think parents should be naming their kids Pilot Inspektor or Audio Science? No, but names are getting stranger and stranger, even among the non-celebrity set. Most likely, there will be a couple of odd names in a class, so all the pressure won't be on one kid, and the names might not seem so weird, either. I figure little Sophocles is bound to get teased one way or the other, since he's got the last name Clement. Clementine/fruit references are bound to be made at some point. And then he'll grow up and move on. ;)

:goodman:

If kids are intent on teasing they'll find ammunition. I just feel that if I were a parent I wouldn't want to knowingly provide such an easy target. It doesn't matter how much confidence parents instill in you, teasing is still gonna sting. But that's the world. And little Soph will take his knocks like the rest of us but he will survive just like we did. :nod:

Soph sounds good to me and it seems the natural nickname for Sophocles.

Or maybe Cleese if they are John Cleese fans. Cleese Clement, now that's got a ring to it. :wink:

Indy, Alison Wonderland sounds like you had a very imaginative playground, or a bunch of punsters!
We used to try to find names that would make a phrase, like Freda Slaves, Bertha Venation, Anita Mann, don't get me started, we had pages of them! :roll:

SW, Cleese Clement - :D
