One of my friends' husbands is a now-retired chiropractor. His practice was in a part of town where there were a lot of educationally compromised people. One of his patients was pregnant, and told him that if she had a girl, she wanted to name her Placenta because she thought it sounded pretty. Friend's hubby had a long talk with pregnant patient. Not-Placenta will thank him someday.
I used to work for a family-run business that specialized in personalized jewelry--I came away convinced that there should be a division of child protective services for reporting names like that.

Some definitely aren't helpful to children, but if your father is Frank Zappa, it's probably not too bad to be named: "Moon Unit"... Moon Unit Zappa... Dweezil Zappa... and Diva Zappa... I mean...

I was fortunate enough to see Mr. Zappa walking near me in Prague one day.

A brother & sister team won The Amazing Race Last Night - their last name is Spangler. Her full name is Starr Spangler & she was a cheerleader on a big college team, and she says she likes her name.

I think Michelle is the weirdest possible name for a child. I just can't imagine *anyone* being called Michelle. Or Michel if they are male. And possibly French.

This is funny - I think many of you will like it. It's written by someone who calls herself "tequilaanddonuts," and it's about her Mom:

"Mom Goes to Whole Foods"

My son is Sky. If I'd ever had a daughter she would have been Hope. Is that bad?

Kathryn has a friend called Stormy Lee. the parents thought of it when they were drunk. What a lovely story for the grandkiddies.
