Kingston isn't my style really, I just think it is a trendy name and I prefer more traditional names so obviously I prefer Zachary, very handsome.

I don't think that celebrity names are off limits....if anything, they become more popular and widely used. I personally really like Kingston. It was on my list until DH's best friend named his son that. I like Shiloh too and don't see it as a dog's name...I feel the same about Milo. For some reason, if a movie gives the name to a dog, it automatically becomes a pet name, even if it was a "human" name first

Like Leighton, I wouldn't name my kid Kingston mainly because it's a city in the area I live in! I don't know of anyone who has named their kid Kingston around here.

Of course I love the name Kingston, because I named my son that. I did it because I loved thename no because a celeb named their kid Kingston. It sounds strong and distinquished, and I just love it. It is not very popular, which is another reason I was drawn to the name. When my son goes to school, I want him to be like I was, and hardly ever had anyone with his same name. Go for it if you like it!

I'm not a big fan of the name..

I don't think celebrity baby names are off limits. I think animal names in popular movies might be, because it's what people will think of first when they hear the name. That wouldn't bother me personally, but if you name your son Milo be prepared for "oh, like the cat!" a lot.

I think a lot of celebrity baby names are off limits just because their silly. Celebrity baby names also tend to become trendy very fast - i.e. Knox. Ten years from now people are going to look at little boys named Knox and just shake their head. The names tend to die when the celebrities become less famous.

I really like the name for someone else's child. And, I don't think celebrity baby names are off limits. It's not like they have a patent for the name or anything.
