Erykah Badu didn’t really name her baby Twitty Milk. But how crazy are celebrity baby names if we really thought that was possible? And how insane is it that Mars Merkaba actually sounds reasonable by comparison?
In other news this week:
- Coming soon to a Baby Gap near you, the winners of the latest casting call. Their names are Jaci Rae, Jovana, Caleb and Kellen. Cute kids, and I must admit that I’m fond of the name Jovana.
- Living in Washington DC, we know a lot of Southerners. Our Louisiana born-neighbor just gave birth to a little girl called Tucker – mom’s maiden name, destined to be given to their firstborn, regardless of gender. I was reminded again that surname names sound most charming when they really are plucked from the family tree.
- On the other side of the Atlantic, my kids have a new cousin called Bruno! I’m over the moon.
- Okay, we still don’t know the octuplets’ names. But Paige posted a lovely summary of names of famous multiples to tide us over until the bajillion-dollar book deal and inevitable reality series.
- Nessa gets a gold star for digging up the link to Lydia May’s site.
- And let’s not forget Chanara’s blog – found here.
- If you thought Mallory’s meaning was unpalatable, check out Nancy’s post on Miwok names. The North Californian tribes seem to have had a lot of trouble with bears, and weren’t afraid to name their children accordingly.
Now let’s all go watch the Grammys and see if M.I.A. goes into labor during the show. Thanks for reading!
