I dunno. I like unique names for kids , though some of them can be rather obnoxious. I actually hate some of the common names like Ryan and Kyle.

Celebrities get a free pass on ridiculous kid names because celebrities, especially rock stars, are our superiors in every way.

When I worked as a summer camp counselor, it seemed as though every other boy were named "Dylan" or "Connor." At least those two have become slightly less popular.

That reminds me of the Simpsons episode in which Lisa gets promoted to the third grade. The teacher hands back papers with the following names: "Dylan, Dylan, Tyler, Madison, Dylan, Dakota..."

What is with the obsession with the name Madison in recent years? It's butt ugly as a first name people get that through your heads and spare your children. Of course now it's being supplanted by the even worse variant Addison, which only makes me think of Addison's Disease, good job new parents of America.

I'll have you know my daughter Maddy is not a Madison, she's a Madeleine
My friend's baby turns one this week - he's a Mason. And his cousin is a Brianna.

Unique is good, but there's a fine line.


Then there's all the cutsie names that drive me bonkers. Mackenzie, Mykayla, Skylar, which are just trendy now. Ugh. Don't parents understand that their adorable tots are going to grow up one day and need big-people names? I saw an example just the other day. A woman named Sparrow. Why?
