    9 Baby Naming Rules from GQ

    Thought some of you may enjoy a laugh, courtesy of GQ: The GQ Guide to Naming Your Baby

    I appreciated Rule #4: "Don't abuse the letter y"

    Just a warning, there's some "adult language" in the article.
    Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Marilla ~ Sarah
    Paul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel

    Hilarious! I loved the advice: "Don't abuse the letter y. It's an emergency vowel, not a megavowel!"
