By the way....

Blogger won't allow me to post comments on other blogs right now (unless they're set up for Haloscan). So "howdy" to all you folks whose blogs I tried to comment on today but couldn't. =P

Celebrities can be so cruel

My husband and I have been trying to make an effort to give our children names that we like, but which our children will be able to live with as well. Apparently, many celebrity parents simply want their child to stand out, and do not appear to consider what their child may think.

These are some of the most atrocious names I have ever seen!

From Nicholas Cage and wife Alice:

Kal-El Coppola

From Frank Zappa and wife Gail:

Ahmet Rodan
Diva
Dweezil
Moon Unit

From Bruce Willis and Demi Moore:

(The first two I would find more acceptable if they hadn't been given to girls!)
Rumer
Scout
Talullah Belle (that one makes me fall over laughing!)

From Paul Geldof and Paula Yates:

Fifi Trixibelle
Peaches Honeyblossom
Pixie

Also from Paula Yates, with Michael Hutchence:

Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily (clearly, this woman thought she was naming lap dogs, not children)

From Erykah Badu (real name, Erica Wright):

Seven Sirius
Puma

From Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell:

Bluebell Madonna

From David Bowie and wife Angie:

Zowie Bowie (This child quite sensibly changed his name to Duncan Jones upon reaching adulthood)

Penn Jillette and wife Emily:

Zolten
Moxie Crimefighter


Pretty special, eh?

Stupid Blogger!

I would have updated days ago, but this switch to using Google accounts kept me unable to access my account until today.

Now, of course, I can't remember any of the topics which I had planned on writing about!

Oh well - I suppose I'll think of something later.
