Way OT - Celebrity baby names...what are they thinking?!
Well, Tomkitten has finally arived. Thank god... now I sleep again :rofling:

I've just got to say that the names some celeberities pick for their kids is crazy. These poor babies are going to grow up and have to go to school and work with names like Moxie Crimefigher (I kid you not Penn from Pen and Teller and his wife named their little girl that) and Pilot Inspektor (young son of Jason Lee from My name is Earl...for the love of god stop the insanity!!!). What the heck are these folks thinking?! I'm all for interesting names (my little boy's name is Garrett... not too strange but different) but this is just cruel. No wonder therapists are so busy :rofling: .

TomKat's baby's name
I'm wondering if Katie is a knitter. They named their baby Suri which is that breed of Alpaca that has what looks like dreadlocks. Maybe they're just Alpaca lovers.

Ya, right. :rollseyes:

what is up with the press feeling the need to combine everybody's names now? drives me crazy!


I actually think Suri is kind of a pretty name though I wouldn't use it most likely.

it certainly could have been worse though!

Sorry, I was just mocking the whole thing. I agree! It's like they aren't individuals anymore. At least they aren't calling the Paltrow/Martin duo "Chriswith" or something stupid like that. Not yet anyway.

Who named their kids this? I would have some issues if I was named Fifi-Trixibelle.

And as for Peaches... somewhere in the future there is a stipper crying.
