I didn't want to hijack the other thread about names no longer popular. But it got me thinking about the idiotic names that I hear these days. For boys, it is evidently chic to name them after items found at landscaping supply or home remodeling outlets. Names such as Brick, Rock, Stone, and Slate come to mind. For girls, the idea is to name them after old presidents. Names such as Madison, Kennedy, and Taylor come to mind. (I do hope nobody names their poor girl child "Bush".) And for a few very unlucky children, it has evidently become chic to name them after cities. These names used to be reserved for only for Golden Retrievers, but now it's perfectly acceptable to name your child Aspen, Denver, or Dallas. (I'm not making "Aspen" up. I just heard a parent refer to a child with that name very recently.) Kill me now.
