    Creative Family Name Game-- good storyline!

    Itís 1955, and youíre a traditional young woman marrying your equally traditional fiancee, who has just returned from the military. After marrying in a church with 16 guests and a crumbly, yellow grocery store cake, you move into a tiny bungalow in a ďniceĒ suburb.
    YOUR NAME (first, middle, maiden name):
    HUSBANDíS NAME (first, middle last):

    In 1957, you have your first child, a boy. You give him popular, 1950s-style names.
    BABY 1íS NAME:

    In 1959, you give birth to your second child, another boy. You give him another popular 1950s first name, but pair it with a middle name that reflects your Russian heritage.
    BABY 2íS NAME:

    By 1962, youíre pregnant again. One chilly October evening, you give birth to your daughter and name her after your mother, Helen Jane.
    BABY 3íS NAME:

    Later that year, your younger sister calls: sheís engaged! She and her fiancee need a place to stay though, so they move into your crowded home for a short while. Both her and her husband have traditionally 1930s-style names.
    SISTERíS NAME (first, middle, maiden name):
    BROTHER-IN-LAWíS NAME: (first, middle, last):

    By 1964, your sister and her husband have moved into an apartment and pretty soon, they have twins: two boys, each with less popular (but not very unusual) names that appeal to your sisterís creative spirit.
    TWIN 1íS NAME:
    TWIN 2íS NAME:

    The 70s arrive! So does your husbandís mistress, who confronts you one evening in your new two-story home. [BABY 1], [BABY 2] and [BABY 3] are playing outside in the backyard when you meet her. Sheís part French, part Hungarian.
    MISTRESSí NAME:

    In 1971, your husband reveal that [MISTRESS] is pregnant with their child. You file for a divorce, and 5 days after [HUSBAND] moves out, she gives birth to their daughter. She has hyper-trendy, 70s-ish that scandalize you.
    MISTRESSí BABY NAME:

    In 1976, at 42, you meet your new soul mate. Heís ten years younger and hails from a bad part of Detroit. You marry 6 months after meeting; he has a traditionally African American name:
    HUSBAND 2íS NAME:

    In 1984, your 27-year-old son [BABY 1] is living in New York City, working as an investment banker. He reveals that heís engaged to a woman from a very old, wealthy family. She has a slightly snobby, upper-class WASPy name. They move into her Upper East Side brownstone and by 1985, have adopted a baby boy from India. He has a 1980s-WASP style first name and an Indian middle name.
    DAUGHTER-IN-LAW 1íS NAME (first, middle, maiden name):
    GRANDSON 1íS NAME:

    In 1985, youíre in your fifties and [HUSBAND 2] is in his forties, so instead of adopting, you decide to foster children. You take in a 15-year-old girl with a drug addiction and bond with her. You adopt her in 1986, and then find out that sheís pregnant. She has a trashy, misspelled name, but you convince her to name her baby son something nice (if cliched.) She insists on a trashy middle name, though.
    FOSTERíS NAME (first, middle, last):
    FOSTER BABYíS NAME:

    In 1986, you learn that [BABY 3], whoís studying for her masterís degree in Spanish history in Madrid has fallen in love with her professor. Theyíre living together and heís 17 years older.

    GRANDSON 2íS NAME:
    TWIN 1íS WIFEíS NAME:

    By 1991, your second son, [BABY 2] has made over half a million dollars. Business is going so well that he and [BABY 2íS BOYFRIEND] have decided to adopt. But in 1991, few agencies are willing allow an unmarried gay couple to adopt a baby, so they have a child with a surrogate, using an egg from [BABY 2]ís Israeli friend. He and [BABY 2íS BOYFRIEND] have a daughter, and give her a first name to commemorate the surrogate and a middle name to commemorate their friend Charlie, who died of AIDS in 1987. The girlís last name is a hyphenated combination of [BABY 2]ís last name and [BABY 2íS BOYFRIEND]ís last name.

Unfortunately, sheís your ex-husbandís mistressí daughter. Oops! Oh, and by the way, sheís pregnant. She has a son with him and gives him a hippie-ish name that would have been cool in 1990s.
