What's In a Name?

Our good friend Billy - Shakespeare, not Idol - once wrote, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." I tend to disagree, my dear William. And so I offer up the first installment of Poor Name Choices for Your Child.

Disclaimer: If your name happens to appear on this list, I apologize that no one informed your parents of the grave mistake they were making at the time.

* Stormie - you obviously are not expecting to have many peaceful moments in this child's life.

* Damien - naming a child anything that comes close to the word "demon" is just asking for trouble.

* Bambi - sorry, but this girl is gonna be a stripper or a porn star, no way around it.

* Destiny - that has "phone sex operator" written all over it.

* Candy - there's another stripper/porn star/phone sex operator in the making.

* Britney/Brittany - the world has met its quota on these for a generation or two.

* Apple, Cherry, or any other fruit - these are foods, not people.
