Why Ridiculous Celebrity Baby Names Suck

I could read about, talk about and dream about baby names all day long. Some people might call me obsessed. I truly get upset each time I hear a bad name… a bad name in my opinion, at least. Too trendy, spelled too ”Kreatively,” or a given name that sounds plain horrible when paired with the child’s family name, are the kind of naming no-nos that really tick me off. I’d share examples of my least favorite baby names but those friends will eventually read this…

That’s just disgusting. But is it the worst Hollywood baby name? You be the judge. Click here to vote! Keep reading »

How The World Ruined The Name Olivia Forever

But then came Olivia Wilde. And Olivia Munn. And now that Olivia is the most popular girl’s name of 2010, the magic is gone. Even Dawson James Van Der Beek named his daughter Olivia! This psychological warfare has done a number on me and I will maybe forever hold a wrath-filled grudge against my procreating peers. Keep reading »

Pink Would Name A Baby Boy After Her Favorite Brown Booze

“My dad’s name is James, and my brother’s name is Jason. [Carey and I] are both Irish, Carey’s middle name is Jason, [and] Jameson — we like whiskey. That’s a no brainer.”

– Pink explains why she and husband Carey Hart would name a baby boy “Jameson.” Only one problem — her doc thinks she’s expecting a girl. Jamesina? Jamesonetta? Stop me. [People] Keep reading »
