Here to break the fast!!

My dear readers, I wish to apologize for the recent drought. I have been abroad and have been looking unsuccessfully for a job (both nasty places, to be quite honest), but I have returned to bring you the best of the interwebs. And it is my distinct honor, ladies and gentlemen, to bring you the most fantastic name I have ever seen in online birth announcements. Caroline and Matthew, whoever you are, I salute you for bringing for Onchorynchus Horatio into the world... and even more importantly, I salute you for naming him Onchorynchus Horatio. I would like to put some money towards his college education. No, seriously, I would - contact me.

Is it too late to let MarkTwain's mom know that it was just a pseudonym? Probably.

Did you ever have to read the story of Jehan Le Fou in French class? Well here's a LeSane!

Epiphany and Serendipity. Twins. As a twin myself, I can't decide if this is better or worse than the traditional Harmony and Melody. Probably better in some and worse in others. Either way, I hope they get nice nicknames. Pippi and Sara, maybe? Too much to hope for?

Little Rydr was born to be wild, and, coincidentally enough, born without vowels. Check out that sweet mohawk.

This kid's name is Zade. Not horrific, until you realize he's got a brother named Zane. Zane and Zade. Better hope no one ever gets a cold in that family.

I know I joke about how some names look like Scrabble tiles. But what if you took two normal names and tried to play Scrabble with them? Perhaps they'd end up looking something like Lyndseei Danielel. How do you even say this?

So let's say I want to use the name Nevaeh (hypothetical situation, clearly), but I'm not sure how to spell "heaven" in order to spell "heaven" backwards. Do I spell it Neveah? Common mistake. Is it Neaveh, maybe? Oh, screw it, let's just go for Neavaeh! That way, it's heaven-backwards AND a palindrome!! (This obviously being highly hypothetical, since I'm not sure there are many people out there who can't spell "heaven" and know what a palindrome is).

You will be disappointed to learn that Pebblez does not have a brother named Bam-Bam. I know I was.

welcome back!

Lyndseeei's commentors are spelling her name sans i, so maybe it's a typo? Although that's barely any better.

I'm sure it is. Lyndsee Danielle. Perhaps they should check their spelling before they announce a baby to the world. But then again, what fun would that be?
