On the Mumtastic's Baby and Bump Australia site there was a discussion about the name ‘Van’ for a baby. Would you name your baby "Van"? What about other Van-related names? What about Dominic, Veedon, Gloria or Avalon? This is the post you’ve all been waiting for.crakerz01 - Boy's name Van, cool or weird? I love the name Van, like Van Morrison. I'm just afraid he may get teased by other kids. What are your thoughts on the name? Thanks for your help!
Kdor11 - I really like 'Van' but I personally would use it as a nickname. I went to school with a guy named Donavan and everyone called him Van, even his mother. Good luck with your choice of names!
Wannabe MomV - Friends had a baby in Dec and called their son Vanier. They call him Van! My name is Vanessa- so I like Van.
Luna Rose - To be honest I'm not keen. I think it would be ok as a nickname. Evan is nice.
Bridie Child - What about the name Vance?
Clairealfie - I don't love it but it's not the worst name I've heard by a long way. I don't think kids will really get mocked in the future about names as there are just so many unique (and odd) ones around. I guess if it sounds like something rude or they have unfortunate initials but I wouldn't worry too much about Van.Pixydust - It’s nice, prefer it for a middle name though.
Miss Zoie - I like it as a nickname. Not sure it looks right for a full first name.
Mauser - Yeeeah, sorry, I don't care for it either... a Van is what I drive... but then again, A) I'm an old fart and I probably don't like 80% of the names going around these days, and B) it's not MY little bundle of joy.
