If we use our favorite name for a girl, her full name would be the same as a British porn star. So, if there is a girly in there, she definitely won't be named Lyla. It's a sad day for us.

Oh no I'm assuming you mean Lyla Jade? (I had to google british porn star named Lyla to figure it out.)

I would never make that association but I can see where your worry would come from.

Yeah. I'm mostly worried about when she's grown and, you know, a lawyer trying to get hired on at a big firm, and they google her name to see her online presence... Ugg.

Oh that's just awful and so disappointing! If it makes you feel any better the porn stars name is spelt different (Layla)

We did discuss alternative spellings, but we have a few other girl names we like, and figure it's just easier to let Lyla go. I mostly fell in love with it because it is a variation of my paternal grandmother's name. She passed away when my dad was 9, so it was kinda special to me to name our LO "after her. I have convinced DH, though, that if we are having a girl, we will use her name as the middle name.
Stupid porn stars. Lol. It's not like we wanted to name her Hootie McHugeyboobie.

Aww that stinks! If it makes you feel any better (aside from the future "google" possibility!), I would never have realized that! What about just changing the middle name?

The problem with changing the middle name is our last names are the same, too. Google "Lyla Ashby," and there you go. I'll have to talk with DH about Lilah (I actually really like that spelling and hadn't thought of it before. Thanks, Hesperleigh!). I'll have to google that spelling and see if her crap comes up anyway. Thanks for all the suggestions!

I would like to hope that by the time these babies are in the work force there is a more reliable source of background checks than google, LOL. And plus, in 15 years that porn star will be long gone, and I'm sure styles will have changed as well.

I teased my DH that by then she'll be doing geriatric porn, and that then our daughter will have to contend with that. Lol.

I would worry too much right now about your name also being a porn star name.I think the name is really pretty! I googles my daughter's name and it is now an IUD- go figure!
