Actor Vince Vaughn and wife Kyla welcomed their first child on December 18. They named their baby girl Locklyn Kyla.
I have mixed feelings about this name.
First, the good. I’m happy that Kyla’s first name was used as the baby’s middle name. I love it when mothers pass down their first names. Fathers do it regularly, but mothers not so much, and that’s a shame.
Second, the not-so-good. Locklyn looks like it’s based on the male name Lachlan (sometimes spelled Lochlan and other ways). I’m not a big fan of parents giving boy names to their baby girls. It’s name-jacking, really, and it frustrates a lot of parents. (Especially those expecting baby boys!)
So, the name Locklyn Kyla gets one thumb up and one thumb down from me.
What’s your take?
