Celebs and their whack baby names



As you may have noticed, celebrities have been on a crazy baby name binge. Jerry Seinfeld welcomed son Shepherd recently. Soliel Moon Frye (Punky Brewster) named her baby girl Poet. Guess that shouldn't be too surprising coming from a Moon Frye.

Of course we have Gwyneth Paltrow's Apple. Michelle Branch just gave birth to baby Owen, a GIRL. Let's see...Ben Affleck's bro Casey has two boys- Indiana and August. Rachel Griffiths son is named Banjo. I could keep going.....

Why, why, why? Pamela Redmond Satran, author of Cool Names for Babies, says "Stars have to set themselves apart from the rest of us. They have a house in Malibu and the $100,000 car, but a distinctive baby name is even more valuable. It makes the kids stand out...And it gets the parents a little publicity too."

Hey. I will not advertise on your blog like the above post!!!! But, I would like to say that it seems odd that when I read you amazing site on my mac at home your links and profile are on the top right side of the sidebar, but when I take a gander at work on my PC your links and profile slide to the bottom.? I wonder, does anyone else have this problem? It would make me feel a lot better if I could get some of your great loyal readers to help me out...
Thank s guys...
(is it a mac or pc thing?)

Yes, Gab, I think we can do a little something about this major B.S. SPAM.... It will overrun your loyal readers and that’s not good...... Let me see what we can do, K? (No one likes to read three or four posts of B.S. before they can get to the “actual” comments noted by your readers."
