Its grand final weekend in Australia and I can’t wait for it to be over mostly because I’m a Sydney supporter in a family of Freo supporters and I think I broke my dads heart by saying I’m supporting Hawthorn this weekend because they are my second team and I would be more of a traitor to support Fremantle. This weeks name of the week is after the Hawthorn Hawks who are from Hawthorn Melbourne but there home ground is in Tasmania (confusing much). Someone one nameberry posted a tread wondering if Hawthorne could work for there AFL loving family. I personally said no.
So the baby name Hawthorne means where the wild hawthorn bushes grow which is a lovely meaning and Hawk is a lovely nickname but it still screams AFL obsessed fan.
Could Hawthorne/Hawthorn work on an Australia boy? I couldn’t hear it without thinking of the AFL team (who happen to have a player named Isaac Smith my little brothers name)
