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:
Battle
Blackberry
Huckleberry


On a girl (who gets it far, far worse):

Iceland
Sprite
(Iceland Sprite? Like a valkyrie or the huldufólk?)
Season
Tennessee
Koi
(KOI!)
Paradise (Koi Paradise! Where we meet all your tropical fish needs!)
Butterfly
Rainbow
Integrity
Cricket
Alaska
Disney
Labyrinth
("Hey man, where were you all last weekend?" "Oh, in the Labyrinth, you know...")
Rhapsody
Breeze
Knowledge


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:

Brewster
Thatcher
Apprentice
Sailor


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.

Scary. My cat's name is Cricket o.O

I'm convinced that if a human child were named that, the child would be posessed by a demon. Lord knows my cat is ;)

I prefer Blackberry Sprite (Yum!) or Battle Season. YES.

Clearly, the originator of these names doesn't know that even in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Huckleberry wasn't his *real* name.

Nor does she know that Tennessee and Alaska were only names during pioneer times, when children were also named things like Hephzibah.

For what it's worth, I know a little girl named Saylor.

It is pretty sad that people name their kids like they want to. They should know that a name is something that you can left behind so easily. So I think that it is better to think in your kid before give it a awful name.
