Comments and insights on the name Oprah: | Edit

When a famous person has a very unusual name, that name, as far as I'm concerned, belongs to the famous person only, and should not be used by ordinary people. If an ordinary person names their child Oprah, or Elvis, people automatically think they're naming their child after the celebrity. Nobody likes to know they're named after a movie star or some other celebrity.
