Is it just me or is Snowboy (read comments) really cool?

(Well, maybe if English wasn't your first language... )

Was it that article? I don't see any comments there.

Here is another Times article on the same subject. Lots of hilarious comments there.

Was that the one that said that nobody is calling their children Margaret or Richard anymore. Ha ha! I always was a salmon swimming up stream.

Hmmm so Pamela Satran is behind the trend for calling girls Rory. Pissing on the celtic culture IMO. Rory is (was?) a boy's name and I am not impressed. grin

Mmm. I know one called something very like Blade.

Given that a 15 yr old is stabbed twice a week, that seems such an inappropriate and violent name.

I can't understand why Mabel isn't more popular. Isabel abound... Well done MrsWoolf may I commend you on your good taste.

Love Elsie and Edith too. Olive. Not sure. Too savoury snack perhaps!

We've just named our baby boy Richard John - family names as well as names we liked.
