  • I was always told when naming your child, if you stand at the back door and yell it out 3 times as loud as you can and it sounds right..it works.

    Sometimes I stand at the back door and yell out my dog's name 3 times as loud as I can. It it sounds right to him, he comes home.

  • How bout "No Bugs Ma'Lady" for a girl ?? (Dated, but classic!) ... "Gibson" for a boy, after my favourite guitar!.... Seriously, I've known some people who have named their kids some bizarre names..let me think..I grew up around a hippie family who named their 5th son (they kept having them) "Hud" (after the old movie)... Same hippy family had a girl and named her "Electa" (thinking they were naming her after the cool model from the Warhol era, "Electra"..duh).. They also had yet another baby boy (I used to babysit all of these kids and I was barely older than some of them) they named "Noah" except the parents were so ignorant they mispelled it on the birth certificate and it came out "NAHO"... I had a corporate boss' wife name their girl (think Donald Trump style family) "Tiffany Sterling" (sounds like a porno actress now), .. A good friend of mine once asked me which name I prefered for a boy (she was 8 mos pregnant and ready to go with one or the other) "Conrad" or "Nolan"....I didn't like either...they didn't match the last name well, but what can you say? I guess beauty truly IS in the eye (or the ear) of the Beholder. lol Good post, BB ! *Mel
