You might not be aware of this because we try not to publish negative comments but it seems like whenever we post a photo of Elizabeth Hurley’s son Damian Charles Hurley, almost 5, people say they’re creeped out by him.And now Perez Hilton is in on it!
Is it because of his name or how he looks? According to The Baby Name Bible: The Ultimate Guide By America’s Baby-Naming Experts, Damian, which in Greek means to tame or subdue, is a well-used upper-class name in England and is gaining popularity in the United States. In 2005, Damian spelled with an A was the 156th most popular name in the US. (Damien with an E was 199th most popular name.)
Baby Name Bible co-author Linda Rosencrantz tells us, "Damian began to get popular in the UK in the mid-1970s. Yes, around the time of The Omen and Alien. It reached #46 on their list in 1975, but wasn’t even in the Top 100 in 2006. A satirical book, You Called Your Baby WHAT?, put out by one of the British tabloids accentuates the negative with the comment ‘A name guaranteed to cause horrible deaths and scare baboons.’"
