Not one but two guests at a party last weekend had cousins named Chardonay, one a boy, one a girl.

To be followed by their baby brother, Merlot and their sisters Cabernet and Sauvignon.

Yes, all pretty sounding words that would make lovely names if it weren't for the associations. It reminds me of a name I loved, but didn't use because of the association.

I saw a production of The Count of Monte Cristo when I was 13 and fell in love with the name Mercedes. I didn't use it for my daughter because of the car company. Now there is a character on Glee named Mercedes, so maybe I should have used it. Oh well.

The car company was named after a young woman of that name, by the way ;)

My favorite comedienne Miranda Hart talked about a girl she went to school with both on her sitcom and in her book. The girl was apparently named Bruschetta. I don't know if that's genuine or if Miss Hart just came up with that, but if the former's the case... oh boy!

Apparently they get that a lot, to the parents' annoyance. Shocking.

In my head, I picture a Mr and Mrs Rubber naming their new-born daughter Leaky.

So we should have named our son "Doctor's office"?  (we had an IUI)

A friend of a friend just named their baby boy "Izzayah"

An aquaintance calls her daughter "Sasha", which is a lovely name. On her actual birth certificate her full name is "Sweet Angel Sent (from) Heaven Above". Yep.

Ambien's nice.  Although I like Aleve too.   :)
