    IMHO its asking to be teased at school. Taj Mahal and all that.

    I like it
    Will you pronounce it Taj or Tie A little boy at school spells his name Taj but with a Tie pronunciation!
    I like both, they sound like surfy names

    I know a little boy names after Taj Burrows (the surfer).

    hmmm yeah even though he's gorgeous, I'm still not a fan of the name. It sounds Indian and this little boy - well isn't, so it's kinda odd.

    We have two Taj's (said Taj not Tie) and they are both lovely so the name has grown on me. Neither of them has ever been teased about the Taj Mahal or any other teasing either.

    I really like it It's mine and DH's second fav boys name. it's a cool name and I don't think he would get teased. (sorry to disagree with you rumpledelf) but my aunty is a teachers aid and as she says, so many kids have "different" names these days that name teasing a really a thing of the past

    It's our newphew's name and it's very suiting. He has blonde hair and blue eyes and is also the son of two top kite surfers. It's a great name

    My cousins name is Taj and the only person he's pointed out the Taj mahal thing was me

    I think it's a cute name!

    I grew up in a school where you got savagely teased for ANYTHING and names were right up the top of the list ... I think I've been scarred for life

    I really like it too, only just the other day I was trying to convince DH to the virtues of this name- unfortunatly to no avail, but I think it is cute. I also have to agree that now that there are so many different names out there it is not such a source for teasing. I would say in my class of about 27 only about 2/3's have your traditional names, the rest are a little bit different or from other cultures, and I dont think I have had one incidence of teasing about names.
