    They're also quite authoritative about the viability (or lack thereof) of Ashley on a boy. Hmmmm

    I don't much care for Elke's image being described as "German sex kitten," but I could just be overly prudish. It just sounds very odd to use "sex kitten" in the info of a potential baby name. But hey, this thread is about descriptions that "rub us the wrong way" so there ya go. :-/
