Oh Baby!  
On the radio this morning, they read an article listing the fastest growing baby names. There were a couple girls names that made me chuckle at their parent's apparent devotion to a movie/TV show (Navi and Sookie) but nothing else really stood out to me.

Then came the boys names. Again nothing really stood out until the last, and most popular name on the list:

5. Lucian
4. Easton
3. Eoin
2. Bentley
1. Castiel

OK. Time to fess up ladies. Which one of you named your child after our favorite semi-fallen angel? :)


full list here
 
 
Mood: amused

Bentley? Really? Is that tv or just the car? EIther way, no parents, just no.

I can understand wanting to name your child something a little more exotic than Michael, John or James. But seriously... Bentley??? o.O. It's just cruel.

Oh those poor kids... D:

That was pretty much my thought. Grade school is going to be a nightmare for them. :(

Well, I always thought the name was rather pretty sounding.
Seems that there was one stoic angel in a trench coat needed for others to realise that as well. ; )
(No, really now. Castiel? Way to go, future hated-by-their-kid-for-the-name parents)

Castiel is a fine name. But I can't imagine naming my son that. I mean, can you imagine explaining to your kid that he's named after 1/2 of your favorite slash pairing? o.O

So... Lucian grows up to be a werewolf leader, Castiel an angel and Bentley a... car? a Transformer? These parents must really hate their kids))) As pretty as these names are, they are more fitting for fictional characters than kids. XDD

This is what gets me. I totally understand wanting a more original name for your child. But when it comes to names from popular movies/tv shows/etc... what kid wants to be known as "the guy who's mom is a little too obsessed with her favorite fandom?" :/

Hi sweetie! Sorry I've been MIA lately. I started working again in March (yay!) and haven't had a lot of time to get on here. (LJ is blocked at the office, and it's killing me! :)

How have you been? Are you still in school, or are you out for the summer?

cali0623: Yay!cali0623 on July 25th, 2010 05:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks sweetie! :)

It's been a huge adjustment, (going from sleeping late every day to getting up at 5am almost killed me the first first few weeks ;) but it was sooo worth it. It's wonderful to actually have a reason to get up in the morning again. (even if it is at an obscene time ;)

I'm so glad things have been going well for you. :) I'm jealous! Even though I'm happy to be working again, I do miss being able to relax and lounge around during the summer. Enjoy your vacation! :)

Well those kids are going to grow up hating their parents. Much as i love Cas, there's no way in hell i'd name a kid after him. That and i wouldn't look forward to explaining my naming choice to said child.

But hello again! I hope work has been treating you well. *hugs*

"That and i wouldn't look forward to explaining my naming choice to said child."

THIS!!! Can you imagine trying to explain to your child that you named him after 1/2 of your favorite slash paring??? o.O

Hello again! Work is good. They've got me running ragged, but I'm loving it. It's so good to actually be earning a paycheck again. :)

The only complaint I have is the fact that they block LJ at the office, so I can't even get on at lunch. The only real chance I have to get on is when I'm on the train (where I have a really spotty connection,) or at home after work (when the last thing I want to do is get back on the computer. :/) But, I am going to try to get on more often, at least on the weekends. I really miss talking to everyone.

I hope all is going well with you?

They would never want to look at their parents again.

Aw, site blocking is never fun, especially if you need to procrastinate for a few mins before getting back to work again.

I got photoshop on my puter again so i can add more to my portfolio, but looking for a part-time/full-time job to get some cash flow in the mean time.
