First, many thanks to Pam and Linda at Nameberry for running my guest post on Red Carpet Boys. And the conversation in the comments convinced Linda to tweak the site’s comments about Clark! I don’t know what the original definition was, but if you click on Clark, he now reads:
Clark seemed to have been ‘Gone with the Wind’, but parents are now beginning to appreciate its cool combination of Gable charm with Superman power.
In other news:
- Disney has unveiled dolls and more (much, much more!) to support their next princess flick, The Princess and the Frog, coming this Christmas to a movie theater (and toy store and fast food joint and so on and so on) near you. Nameniks might recall that the character was originally called Maddy – a historically accurate choice, but one that didn’t please critics. Instead, she’ll be Tiana.
- Of course, the name that could take off is Anika – Anika Noni Rose is the actress voicing the princess.
- In star baby news, there’s another Donald John Trump on this planet – son of Donald John Trump, Jr. This makes the newest addition DJ III. Wonder if they’ll call him Trip?
- Constance Marie, best known for her role on the George Lopez show, named her daughter Luna.
That’s all for this week. I’m off to a Mardi Gras/Oscars/let-our-kids-run-crazy-and-pray-for-an-early-spring party!
