Lincoln and Jackson are generally boys' names.

If I were to ever have a son, I would try to sell the naming rights to a fast coffee company so he can be named Dunkin or Starbuck.

Daily attendance call at Our Lady of Perpetual Guilt Academy:


"Mary?"
"Here, Sister!"
"Mary?"
"Present, Sister!"
"Mary?"
"Here, Sister!"
"Mary?"
"Yo, Sister!" (SMACK!)
"Mary?"
"Mary?"
"Mary?"
"Does anyone know where Mary is?"
"She's home sick, Sister!"
"Theresa?"
"Present, Sister!"
"Theresa?"
"Here, Sister!"
"Theresa?"...….

My niece named her kids Keely, Armani, and the latest is Luna. Future jobs are probably cashier, male hair stylist, stripper. They all have different last names but most of the fathers go by Convict. True story. You name a female cat Luna. Not your kid.

My sister got caught up in the Madison trend. I think when my niece's teacher asks for Madison, 4 or 5 raise their hand.


My kids have boring Irish names. Bridget Mary and Allison Katherine. One is manager of a college call center. One is a manager at a hotel for a major hotel company. Wife's two kids are David and Rachel. Wife is Stacey. NOT Stacy or Stacie, and never call her Stace. I go by Jim, but my dad and my two living sisters call me Jimmy.

I had a doctor whose last name is Hu. I had a lot of fun with that one.
Them: "What's your doctor's name?"
Me: "Hu."
Them: "Your regular doctor."
Me, very patiently: "Hu. H. U. Over at Kaiser."

I did name a female cat Luna. It suited her perfectly, she was kind of spacey.

And I have two nieces named Madison, about ten years apart, on different sides of the family.

My mom was Catholic, so we all got saints names. In the sixties it seemed really cool to have siblings named Peter, Paul, and Mary.

I'd vote against any name that works in this skit:

There's a doctor in my town named Phuoc Huu Pham. Now, I know Phuoc is pronounced "puck" but still I have to snicker every time I drive by.


"Who's your doctor?"


"Phuoc Huu."


"Well, you don't have to get ugly about it; just tell me his name!!!"

Can't rep you enough for that!

Visualize what your kid's name is going to look like on a resume. Really think about how a hiring manager is going to react.

I'm black, and I thank the stars my parents gave me a "normal" name.

My little girl’s name was Jessica. She had five brothers, including a twin brother & I was so excited to finally be able to name my baby girl!

If only she were still here to hear me say her name; the last time her name & therefore her existence, was remembered by another was when I received a letter in the mail for ‘Jessica’ ... the itemized bill from the ambulance service that was accidentally sent to me instead of the insurance company.
