Douche of the Day: Weird Kid Names

People who name their kids weird names. Can the pendulum swing back to normal names, please? After a slew of faddy J-Crew entries like Hunter, August, Thread or Boisenberry, I’ve been hearing more and more about kids being named after sports figures. Huh? Hi, these are my two kids, Rollie Fingers and his baby brother Franky “Sweet Music” Viola Marshall. Come on. Saw an article the other day that the Chinese word for “Olympic” is fast becoming the most popular new baby name. Aside from the fact that all of the weird stuff in the news always happens in certain parts of Asia (8-legged babies, typhoons, holdover Communism), you can’t attribute shifts in the earth’s crust to strange names. I mean, come ON. Whatever happened to naming a kid Howard and calling him Sandy?
