My friend is from Japan, living in the UK, is expecting a boy.
She wants to call him Subaru.
I have strong reservations, because the boy is going to grow up in the UK & I think everyone he meets will be like, ‘Subaru? Like the car [make]?’
She thinks there won’t be a problem, but I grew up in the UK, know what children can be like with names, whereas she didn’t grow up here.
Do you think a boy called Subaru would not undergo too much ridicule growing up in the UK?
