I bet we'll all be meeting some young Barack's in the next few years.

Allegra, my sister named her offspring Allegra.

Allegra.

Isn't that the name of some new drug they're pushing on TV? I seem to recall a commercial featuring a quartet of silver-haired elderly folks smiling and playing tennis in slow motion.

@ossobuco,
Actually, that should be Maj. Major Major Major.

You, comrade Gargamel, win the floral centerpiece for the correct answer. The drug has been on the market for longer than you think-- at least 10 years.

Many of us tried to talk her out of it to no avail.

I am consoled in knowing at least she didn't name her Ashley or Madison. I think the destiny of anyone with a name like Ashley is bound to be either an anorexic or unbearably vapid.

My favorite commercial of all-time. Remember the end scene where her teeth fell out and the rabid dogs jumped over the fence and the one dog grabbed the dentures, placed them in its mouth, and smiled at the camera -- an evil, demented canine grin?

I do fondly remember that scene, particularly the part where, after the dog smiled with the dentures, it took a dump on the lady while the other one humped her leg.

So I'm guessing it's generally agreed that naming your children Bristol, Willow, and Piper reflects some fundamental errors in judgment...

@patiodog,
Actually, I think Pipers ok.

I think of Piper Lauri, the actress.

If I can envision an adult being treated seriously with the name they have, it's ok with me.

I have no idea why people name their girls, Tiffany, Amber or Crystal.

What do you give the parents at the babies christening party, a G-string? "I'm thinking ahead, she'll need this for her first job, and I want her to think of me"

Tiffany has that regal sound -- it has a sort of British royalty ring, while Amber sounds a bit like something from which one would extract dinosaur DNA. Not glamorous perhaps, but having a sense of history and a bit of Darwinian flair.

Crystal sounds cheap. Like a drug or a cheap trick Bear would have preyed upon in the late seventies.

I know a kid named Bradley. When he was a baby, I said, Badley? What the -

Well, Bradley is now twelve. He's the biggest kid in his class, and all the other boys take his lead. A silly name hasn't hurt him at all, that I can see.

@gustavratzenhofer,
Funny because I get the same impression as Chai with those name - kind of cheap sleazy sounding. Even though I have met an Amber who is the opposite very sweet and nice.

@Linkat,
I knew a cheap and sleazy Amber. She had a sister named Jade who not cheap and sleazy.

They were both smoking hot, tho.

I tried to read Anna Karenina once, but was bored out of my mind and stopped after a couple of chapters.

I know a little girl called 'London' coz that's where she was conceived. Now that's a dangerous naming methodology.

If everyone followed that logic my name would be Dunkin' Donuts Bathroom.

@Gargamel,
It should be a lesson to the kiddies out there that, by this naming logic, there are no children named "in the hand," "in the mouth," or "in the pooper."

Back seat of Ford Prefect.

It's a bit like the porn name game isn't it?
