|Susan & Robert Downey Jr.|

They named him Exton Elias.
An interesting name. I wonder if this is a 'celebrity' thing or a 'Robert & Susan' thing. As a Jennifer, I know what it's like to think about unusual baby names. Or in my case, character names. As far as celebrity baby namings go, though, Exton is not that bizarre. It doesn't lend itself to a nickname but neither does my sister's name, whereas 'Jennifer' provides enough nicknames that every third person calls me something different!
What about you? Did your normal/unusual name make you go opposite in naming your children?
Did you consider nicknames before naming your child?
Why did your parents name you what they did?
Any nickname horror stories or great stories?
