I appreciate that the woman does all the heavy lifting so the name should be mostly her choice, and a non-mainstream name like Caleb or Eleanor is perfectly ok, but if the father is still in the picture he should have veto rights. Nothing says "my mother was a dumb illiterate solo parent" like "Katness".

^^ haha.
To be honest i always considered 'Jacinda' to be a pretty white trash name, more so with a 'T' instead of a 'D'. Before Labour's victory I was back home and I met a Jacinda, I chuckled a bit (discreetly), I guess i hadnt been home for a while, maybe im wrong but i haven't met many if any 'Jacinda's' outside of nz.

Admittedly this name doesn't grind my gears.
