Would you name your child this?

I should have known that I would see an online news article yesterday about a Mom who gave birth yesterday on Eclipse Day and decided to name her baby girl "Eclipse". I am not sure what State she lived in. It was probably one of the States that was in the direct path of the Eclipse. I would never name my child after a big event whether it be an event of nature or a world event, or a world leader. I remember reading that some one over in Iraq named their kid, George Bush, because they were happy when we helped liberate Iraq. What do you think of the name "Eclipse" for a girl? I just think there are too many real girl names out there that could have been used. But, then, I am not the parent and the parent gets to choose the name.

Oh glory, names. My husband is a social worker. The names that he records!! One family's last name was Queen. They named their baby BOY Roman. So the boy is going to go through life being a Roman Queen. Hee hee. Except for him.
And what are the chances that every other little girl in her grade one class will have the same name?? I tried so hard to pick a name that would be unique for my daughter and about 2 months later her name appeared on a soap opera. She grew up with zillions of them!
I like the name Eclipse! It's somehow odd, but it's a feminine noun here and can fit a baby girl. George Bush is kind of weird instead. I don't care much about events, a name has to sound well and mean something deep. Well, Summer and Winter are common names, but they also mean seasons. Again, I think Eclipse is fine. Not a word we say everyday, so why not? Way better than some of the names coming from Christian countries. I would never call my daughter Dolores (pains) or Soledad (solitude).
