My daughter was born Dec 24th 1968 while the Apollo 8 was orbiting the Moon. I suggested Apollonia, (Michael's Sicilian bride in the "GodFather") but was nixed. Still think it's an okay handle!!

I wonder if that story about the boy named "Nosmo King" is true, or urban legend.

We have a little baby girl due in December and every name I think I like one day I end up hating the next day. I joke about resurrecting one of the gemstone names "Ruby, Opal, Pearl" or else the flower names "Rose, Petunia, Daisy."

I see my son's name on the "whitest" list but I don't know any other boy with it.

I'm going to tip my hat to the low-end whites. It looks like they do a better job naming their kids than the high-end whites, at least among the girls. "Madison" is not a good girl's name. And Alexandra will just get shortened to Alex, so it becomes gender-neutral. If I have girls, they are going to get girl's names. "Amber" and "Heather"--now those are old-fashioned classy names.

If I have offended any Madisons or Alexes out there, I'm sorry. But remember, blame your parents, not me.

:)

My eight year old son is named Richard and he goes by Ricky. We have yet to meet another Richard or any derivative in any school class or outside activity.

In 1st grade he had two Greyson's, and two Harrison's in the same class. He's had numerous friends named Blake, Chase and Chandler.

People try to be so original but, IMO it comes off as contrived. Most of the names I hear today probably come from their mom's favorite soap opera.

My parents worked with a woamn named Appolonia! (She was known as "Bella")
She WAS Michael's bride, but also a saint- She was burned at the stake, or something like it, but before that she was torutured, including the extraction of all her teeth. Thus, Appolonia is the patron saint of dentists...

I kid you not.

the book Freakanomics has a whole chapter on this. The high end names of one generation become low end names ten years later. It is an interesting chapter, I'd recommend reading the book from the library it isn't worth owning.

I just happened to notice that in the boy names, the high-end ones are all Biblical and the low-end ones are all entertainers that were popular at some time in that decade.

My job puts me in contact with names very similar (and worse) on a daily basis.

And urban legends are never imaginative enough to think up names as weird as those.

Some background:

My wife and I are caucasian, and I guess we'd be considered upper income here in TN.

Our children are named Will (William) and Katie (Katherine).

Look how WHITE they are!

Silly.

Yeah. Kinda like:

15. Jazmine
16. Jasmin
17. Jazmin
18. Jasmine

It would seem to me that some folks can't decide on how to spell it. Perhaps they need a dictionary. They are, after all, naming their kid after a plant.

Yes he did.

And Homer changed his name to Max Power.

He tried to get Marge to change her name to one of the following...

Hootie McBoob
Chesty LaRue
or Busty St. Clair

One of my favorite episodes.

"I never understood self-conscious, made up names. What's wrong with Christian names? Paul, Steven, James, Michael...?"

Someone yells "Mike" and we all turn around.

That's why I became "wiz". It's a Native American name that means 'sound on prairie, made by buffalo'. 'Tsa joke, but nobody else wants the name, and it keeps me humble.

Oh, yeah. IR1RU12. Whatever that means.
