A MUM told how she had met a family who had named their baby named after a Scottish island and she couldn't believe that parents would pick the "stupid" name for a child.

The incredulous mother explained that she was on holiday in Florida when she met the little one, who was called Isla-Skye.

She reasoned that they must have known of the Scottish island The Isle of Skye and found the choice of name "odd".

Taking to Mumsnet, she said: "I just met a family who named their daughter Isla-Skye.

"Which literally sounds like Isle of Skye when you say it out loud.

"Am I the only one who thinks it's so odd to give that name to a baby? Or did it just catch me off guard?"
