Funny article about baby naming
I thought this was funny: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mikespohr/wa...rive-you-crazy
Baby naming articles are often interesting to me, especially from a non name-nerd perspective

Ha ha. Interesting perspective. But it's always a bit cringey to read through comments on articles such as this and see stuff like "I'm called Cecilia. It means 'majestic butterfly that eats honey by a moonlit lake' in Yiddish." Argh!
And this: "Although, can you trust a year when one of the most popular names was Elmer?" -it surprises me that some people -online and IRL- just can't get their heads around how dated names used to be cool too. Little Elmers were once like the Hudsons and Mckaylas of today. One day, the trendy kids will be very old and people will be thinking 'Madison? Blech! How dated! Now, Brian- there's a good name...'!!!

The old man ist right, Fred is a strong name!
I also loved this comment by a Mariana:
It's weird to think my parents might've gone through all of this and I still ended up with a name that means 'sea of bitterness'. Oh, and one of my sisters is named Giulia, which is really just Italian Julia, so my mum has a sea of bitterness, a bearded youth and a bean grower. Perhaps someone should've told them to look the names up before choosing.TTC #1

I found this pretty humorous except for the part about grandma knitting a blanket. My grandma died while I was pregnant. And my son has a crocheted blanket that a family friend finished, because my husband's grandma died when my son was still a tiny baby. Otherwise, the other stuff was hilarious. That part was just a downer for me.Rachel Whitney 1984
