I feel bad for them when they learn to spell/write their names in school! You know the teacher always made you write out your full name on every paper in K-3rd grade to practice! :(

Agreed, how could they possibly be embarrassed? As long as their peers have a proper childhood (eg. Growing up with LOTR) then they should be fine! Plus I know a bunch of kids with odd names and it doesn't really matter past third grade. Unless your name is Venus and you're ugly. Im sorry, but your parents were setting you up for failure there

They might have some trouble being Shired by most employers with names like that though. They'll have to go There and Back Again with birth certificates to prove that they're legitimate. It's hard enough to get your foot in the Mordor and find wOrc as it is.

"Reneesme". Or however you spell it. I mean, I'm not a fan of Tolkien but he created beloved stories and created or cemented most of the conventions of the High Fantasy genre. Peregrin can also stand as a name on its own - an unusual one, but naming people after birds of prey is not stunningly bizarre. Unlike "Reneesme" where stunningly bizarre is just the start of the problems.

That's awesome! But if it really bothers you that much (and it shouldn't), they'll most likely wind up going by nicknames anyway. Perry's a perfectly normal name, after all.

One of my lecturers at university is named Peregrine but he goes by Perry. I think Pip or Pippin would be cute for a kid but once he reaches adulthood I think he would take the more recognised version, "Perry".

It would have made more sense to name them after one of the dwarven twin pairs from the Hobbit anyways. I think Gloin and Oin have a nice Ring to them, don't you?

10- .....You know, I kinda agree with you. No offense to anyone named Bob, John, Steve or Bill, but I'd rather possess a hobbit name over one of those overly used, single syllable names. :P

Frankly, I'd rather be named Jeff than "that weird kid named after some kind of midget" which is inevitably what OP's grandkids will be referred to as.

Of course they'll have nicknames. Pippin and Merry seem rather obvious choices to me. Your mind must be all in a Smaug not to have thought of that.
