Parents don't do their children ANY favors by giving them a hard-to-pronounce or hard-to-spell "trendy" name. HR departments, when going through stacks of applications, will literally bypass the ones they come across that have a name that they might have a hard time trying to figure out. They don't have the time and too many people are looking for work. It's a lot easier to call "Emily" about a job than "Xylia" (the name a friend of mine gave her newborn daughter).
