Alaska Season, Blackberry Battle, and Cricket Integrity: an ABCs of modern hippie naming
My favorite user over at Behind the Name just posted her list of favorite names. GET READY TO ROCK, MY FRIENDS:
The list includes things like Tristan, Edison, Oceana, Lavender... okay, unusual, but not terrible, right? Things are going smoothly until this user contracts... THE DREADED NOUN DISEASE!!
On a boy:
On a girl (who gets it far, far worse):
Sprite (Iceland Sprite? Like a valkyrie or the huldufólk?)
Paradise (Koi Paradise! Where we meet all your tropical fish needs!)
Labyrinth ("Hey man, where were you all last weekend?" "Oh, in the Labyrinth, you know...")
Actual suggestions, people, actual suggestions. All we need is name combinations. What about Rainbow Knowledge (sure to come out of the closet early) or Tennessee Integrity ("I found this here hunderd-dollar bill on yer porch, ma'am, thought I should return it.") or Disney Season ("Here come the tourists to Anaheim! It must be Disney season!!")
Far less virulent but also concerning is the MEDIEVAL OCCUPATION DISEASE, which seems to have infected this poster in the girls' names quadrant of her brain:
ON A GIRL. No, never mind, ON A CHILD! A real, live, breathing child! Breathing, that is, until little Rainbow Blueberry Apprentice kills herself for shame.
