    I don't have really strong feelings but I kind of like it. This name literally just came up this afternoon between my partner and I (we were watching reality TV and someone had the name) and his...

    Tanqueray. Naming your child after alcohol is always aiming pretty low, but Tanqueray? Might as well just go for broke and name her Natty Light.
