Thanks to David in Great Falls, we now know that Ethan and Madison were at the top of the list of the 100 most most popular boy and girl baby names in Montana in 2008.

I was very surprised to read that so many girls were named Brooklyn and Brooklynn. Any ideas why?

Brooklyn is the Anglicization of the Dutch "Breuckelen" (= Broken Land).

Gotta be better'n Zappa's kids... Okay, so "Moon Unit" is actually kinda neat, but I'd sure hate to have been "Dweezel". Tho he seems to have liked it:

Dweezil Zappa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dweezil's registered birth name was Ian Donald Calvin Euclid Zappa,[4] although this occurred only because the hospital at which he was born refused to register him under the name Dweezil. The name was a nickname coined by Frank for an oddly-curled pinky-toe of Gail's. He was always called "Dweezil" by his family and was unaware that this was not the name on his birth certificate. Upon this discovery at the age of five, he insisted on having his nickname become his legal name. Gail and Frank hired an attorney and soon the name Dweezil was official.

I named my boy Ethan in December 08, but I was in Romania at the time. Feel kinda bad that it happened to be a most popular name LOL, but I didn't choose it for the popularity. I simply liked the name. Oh well.

I won't say the last name but I had hippy neighbors when I lived in a funky landslide prone waterfront community in Tacoma Wa. They had twins and their first and middle names were Zorba Sperm-whale and Isaak Raging buffalo.

I suppose it could be worse. I have dogs named "Loser" and "Roundhead", and I've had cats named "Mangey" and "Stupid Cat". Good thing I don't have kids!!

And the poor kids might be 10 years old before they got names...!!

Ethan is a good traditional name that's been rediscovered. -- Funny thing, when you're a kid you want to be named something exotic -- no one wants to be another Bill or Jane; they'd rather be Zorro or Veronica. But when you get older, those simple traditional names start to sound a lot better!
