Q. Is it alright if I name my daughter after u (btw she's 5 but it will have to take some time to get used to.)


The Oracle replies:

I have a feeling that Abby and/or Olivia are yanking my chain.
It's unclear whether you are thinking of calling her Coldplay or Oracle (or what) to be honest. If she's 5 I'd assume she's already been named but if you do go for Coldplay or Oracle I'm sure a lifetime wouldn't be long enough to get used to it.
You're obviously entitled to give your child whatever name you choose but don't be surprised if she decides to change it when she's legally allowed to. I'd be honoured and flattered of course but it doesn't suit everyone. How about Fleur?
If this was a serious question, I apologize for ridicule.
