    I like Saskia. It's exotic and sassy. Keziah, I wouldn't be sure how to pronounce and that would bug me. Is it KETS-ee-ah? KET-zy-uh? And Quintana shortened to Quinn seems too commonplace. JMO.

    I agree, Tom is much more universal than Jemima, but I would guess that black parents would avoid the name Tom for their sons. I remember reading a question to Swistle from a white couple who were...

    Calling a black person an "Aunt Jemima" or an "Uncle Tom" (sometimes followed directly by the N-word) is derogatory because it's related to slavery. The "Aunt Jemimas" and "Uncle Toms" were the...

    I don't have any twins in my family but in my opinion it's much better when twins DON'T have matchy names, especially when they are identical. The only guideline I would really use is that the names...
