Australian couple Courtney Cassar and Laura Sheldon welcomed daughter Lyla Jill in October and wanted both of their names represented, so instead of giving her a hyphenated name they decided to mashup their two last names, giving her the legal surname of "Casseldon"
"I like the idea of our daughter having a part of both of us," Cassar explained. "With hyphens, I find a lot of kids end up choosing one name because it is easier. We played around with a few last names and found one that we like and sounds like a last name."
- Many folks were all for the new name, with one person noting, “Cannot. Like. This. Enough,” and another adding, “She is beautiful!! And LOVE the name."
- Some wondered whether the new name was even legal.
- "Why? Bit ridiculous really,” one person noted, while another one added, "This is peak stupid.”
