I was reading an article in the New York Times a minute ago and saw an adorable baby boy named... Malice.

Apart from the meaning, the spelling would be terrible.

Oh man, one of my coworkers had her baby yesterday. When I heard the first and middle name my first thought was, "That sounds like a pair of dogs." So I googled 'top 10 dog names' and the first hit that came up was a top 100 list. Number 11 and number 12.

(If you figure it out, please don't type it here... I'm paranoid that she'd google her kid's name and find the post!)

First name Peter, last name Wycoff. I probably wouldn't have thought anything about the last name had it not been preceded by slang for cork.

I think naming a child a popular name is a bit tragic. Who wants to be the 5th Madison in a class? I actually love classic names like Prudence, which I think someone disliked. Ethel is also kind of great, I think. Something poetic about older names, for me at least.
I completely agree. To my mind, if you want your children to be taken seriously as adults, giving them actual names seems like a good first step. (Prudence was actually on my list of possible names for my youngest child, but James seemed more appropriate in the event!)

So I actually like Autumn and Summer as names for siblings.

Anyway, the best I've got is a guy that went to my college named Long Thang. He won for his class president just based on his name.

The list of dog names I looked at was a lot of really normal, fairly popular people names....

What do I know? I named my kids Felix and Milo, and I have had it pointed out to me that both are Children's cat characters multiple times. I can't tell you how many dogs named Milo I have met. They were people names first.

I went to high school with a girl named Allison who is married to Jerimiah, and they named their son...Jerison. Really? What will the next be -Allimiah?

I went to high school with a girl named Kimbra, whose parents were Kim and Brad.

I met a person named Cinnamon the other day. She was neither a cat nor an exotic dancer, so she is clearly not living up to her name.

Oh! And my friend's husband's coworker's daughter just named her baby Macus. Like Marcus, but without the r. Or like mucus with an a.

An acquaintance just named her new baby Kaydence. I hate the whole Brayden/Jayden trend with a passion to begin with, but this took it to a whole new level.

Wow I thought weird name combos were unique to my family! My cousin is named after his mother, Kim, and his father, Marlo....to make Kimlo.

When I was younger, I hated that my parents named me Autumn. Kids thought it was hi-larious that Autumn rhymes with bottom. And so many people ask me if my siblings are Summer and Spring. It stopped being funny after the 100th time!

Could her parents have been fans of the "Mission: Impossible" TV series? Barbara Bain's character was named Cinnamon Carter.

At my old work, I had to talk quite a bit to two women who ran a local museum. Their names? Cinnamon and Pepper.

I used to work with a woman who was named after her dad so her first name was Joseph, which is probably kind of crummy to do to a girl. But her middle name was Ann, so she went by Jo'Ann (not crummy, although that apostrophe bugged me until I found out that it really was doing what an apostrophe is supposed to do.)

New client who's son's name is a variation of perilous. Hopefully he does not grow into it...

I love both of these names. It's probably for the best I didn't end up having a daughter, or she'd have been stuck with a hippy-dippy name!

Can someone name their baby Mervyn for me? For some reason I think that would be hilarious today. And though it's a better name than Jerison, Kimbra, Sideve (really?!) or Kaydence, it would be a bit crummy for the child.

A girl I was friends with in high school has a son named bayme. Maybe that is a real name, I had just never heard it before and felt it was crummy.
