And the girl from Small Wonder was Vickie. And the Dad on that show was the commentator on the classic Dave Chappelle "Frontline"/White power bit.


Bridget? That's such an old-fashioned name. Why can't you go with a trendier name like Dakota or Marissa? ;-7 :-b


Scary but true:
I know a man named Dakota.

Dakota is a great name; for a golden retriever.

It's totally unisex too; it was male I believe up until that little girl started making movies and people cry. In any case, the trend now seems to use "unusual" names which are all becoming trendy because of it. No one's named Dave anymore... it has to be Blake, River, Hunter, Connor or some new "state" like, Arizona or Iowa... well, no one's named Iowa; yet.

Anyway, here are the most popular baby names in the US:

Boys:
1. Jacob
2. Aidan
3. Ethan
4. Ryan
5. Matthew
6. Michael
7. Tyler
8. Joshua
9. Nicholas
10. Connor

Girls:
1. Emma
2. Madison
3. Emily
4. Kaitlyn
5. Hailey
6. Olivia
7. Isabella
8. Hannah
9. Sarah
10. Abigail

Still annoys the heck out of me. Stupid unoriginal people stealing my name. I had it long before it got popular with parents that have no imagination. :-C

Might as well tell this story since the topic has been brought up.

A couple of weeks ago I was at Kroger's (supermarket) picking up a few things. While I was checking out the chips trying to figure out what I wanted, this woman said "Madison don't do that!". She was a good 10 feet away or so and I could see she had a little girl with her, so I figured it out and just tried to ignore her. Anyway, the mom kept on with the "Madison this" and "Madison that", so I finally turned to her and said "Would you please shut up and leave me alone?"

Stark wide eyed look of terror from the mother. :-b

So I said something along the lines of: "While I appreciate that you named your daughter after me, I don't need you repeating my name over and over and over again. It's unoriginal and unimaginative people like you that are sending the country down the toilet!".

Still the same look on her face.

So I said something like: "Do I have to spell this out for you? God America has really become dumb. MY name is Madison, so shut the hell up! Do you understand now, or do you have a lack of upbringing problem that's preventing you from being able to concentrate, and need me to repeat it again?"

The look of horror faded and I get this meek little reply of "I'm sorry.....I didn't know that was your name too.".

So I said, "Too? I was named long before your daughter in case you don't realize that fact. Doesn't matter though, just tell her whatever you're telling her and quit repeating my name like it's something special, or something you thought long and hard about and came up with on your own. It isn't. You pulled it out of a book for Christ's sake, so shut up!".

And proceeded to leave.

Parents who constantly refer to their kids by name annoy me. "Jeffry Jeffry Jeffry". :-P Just so happened that I was already annoyed, and in this case it happened to be my name being used, so I let her have it. :-b

What's interesting is that we were pretty much set on Haley (spelling was TBD) as the name of our most recent daughter, and decided against it because of it being on the list...

As Mad said, people are just too freaking unoriginal in their name choices nowadays... :-t

This is why you aren't allowed out of the house much correct?
