    That's the dumbest thing I've heard so far today. Messiah? Are you kidding? Don't people understand that kids pay for their parents' "creativity" for the rest of their lives? Either weird spellings nobody can find at the doctor's office or school enrollment, or constant mispronunciations, or even losing out on job interviews because interviewers can't bring themselves to call on the phone and ask to speak to Messiah. (sigh) Unique names are fine, but I wish people would make sure they don't go too far out in left field.
