You KNOW I don't blog for the hits and glory of it all, right? However, I do feel a certain responsibility to you all and lately, I've been remiss. Because I NEARLY missed sharing something with you. And that just isn't right. As it stands, THIS POST may be my highest commented on ever. Maybe. It's definitely up there. And every year I go back and read her annual name list. I don't always blog about it, but I feel I should. Because it's comedy GOLD, I tell ya.
So. I repent. I apologize for getting this to you all so late. Without further ado, THE LIST. Go. Read. Come back here and discuss. Because I do enjoy crazy baby names ALMOST as much as I enjoy good dreams of a buff Nathan Fillion whisking me away on Serenity...but that's another topic for another day.
Ok. Done? Let's get down to it, shall we? WHY for the love of all that is right and holy do people do this to poor innocent children? Oh man. My favorite category - BY FAR - is the phonetically spelled category. Because it's just wrong. No matter how popular Isabelle got, I still loved it. I've loved that name since I was little and have always dreamed of a little girl named Isabelle. It really was my first pick over Eliza for a girl when we got pregnant (but was vetoed - strongly - by Isaac). However. Izibele? May have ruined it forever for me. Sigh...
Moving on...Kaimen? Wow. BRAYAH?! Oy. It makes Acelyn (which, WHAT?!) look downright dainty and lovely! I was going to go with Razdyn as my particular winner for this year, but no. That HAS to go to Paizli. Oh wow. Just...I really don't want to think that all of these parents are uneducated, because I'm thinking it's not true. Right? It can't be true. But...please stop naming your kid something made up and awful. For everyone's sake! I mean Paisley is a LOVELY name. So cute. Paizli? Not so much.
Anyway. As my friends and I say...bless their hearts. No. Seriously. Bless them.
