I have a high school classmate who named her daughter Nori. She gave the meaning she was going with (which I canít remember now), but I kept wondering why she had named her after the seaweed common in sushi.

Iím a little hesitant to post this, because if friend Googles the name sheís probably going to find it here. I canít imagine there are that many Eugene Amadeus Oscars in the land Ö not sure about the spelling. I am assuming, perhaps hastily, that the spellings are traditional. I mean Ö  I guess the names are traditional, as well, but Ö yowza. Thatís a mouthful.

It's been reported that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their baby North making her full name......North West.  Just when I believe I can't think less of them, they always top themselves.

They could get Jack White's daughter Scarlett to babysit.

You know what's funny?  When I found out that that was the real name and not a lame late night joke... I couldn't help but think how boring a name that is.  Here they had such an opportunity to go big (given the certainty of coverage of everything they do ever) and that's what they came up with?  It reaches for originality but ultimately lacks imagination and interest, IMHO.  Now if the baby's middle name was Bynorth...   ;)

And I just choked on a Dorito!  I heard this on GMA this morning and just stood in front of the TV praying there was going to be a punchline..

Demon.  Pronounced Demahn.  Could be worse, it just has an unfortunate spelling.

I am reminded of a cartoon I used to watch years ago. "My client was Victor Demann." "I always knew you were working for DeMann!!!"

LOL, I was thinking the same thing when I heard it, I thought no, that can't be it, it has to be something more dramatic..but umm no - North they went  :)

Busy Phillips (actress on Cougartown and I think McKensie's sister (step perhaps) - just had another baby girl..

now the first girl they named....Birdie (middle name Leigh) -

the new baby - Cricket (middle name Pearl)

I guess they like nature  :)
