Palin Names meme

From Wikipedia:
[Sarah Palin] married her high school boyfriend, Todd Palin, on August 29, 1988.[6] The Palin family lives in Wasilla, about 45 miles (72 km) north of Anchorage. The Palins have two sons (Track, 19, and Trig, four months) and three daughters (Bristol, 17; Willow, 14; and Piper, 7) [ages as of August 2008].[98] Todd Palin has said Track's name came from the interest Sarah's parents had in the sport and the fact that he was born in the sport's season; Bristol was named after Bristol Bay in Alaska, where Todd grew up and where he does commercial fishing; Willow was named after Willow, Alaska; Piper got her name because it is uncommon and "a cool name"; Trig's name is Norse for "strength".

1)Your first-born will be named after your parents favorite sport: Baseball

2)Your second-born will be named after a nearby area that you're not from but you like the sound of part of the name, and maybe you have nostalgic memories of said place: Maine

3)Your third-born will be named after another nearby place, for no reason other than you already have two children and don't have time to put much thought into another name: New Mexico

4)Your fourth gets a "cool" name: JohnnyCash

5)Your fifth gets something mythological, possibly straight out of Lord of the Rings: Strider

Gotta say it. Stooping to the level of attacking the way someone names their children is petty, childish, stupid, and has nothing to do with politics. This is about equal to the right-wingers who make fun of Obama's name sounding like Osama.

I think it is different, anonymous stranger, because I am not saying or implying anything bad about her other than an odd aesthetic sense when it comes to chilldren's names. I am not saying that she is un-american or anything of the sort.
As it turns out from watching her speech, I do in fact think that she is wicked and awful, but for a host of different reasons.

It didn't end up being a post, but I also made fun of the Democrats and Joe Biden for having a son named Beau. I asked Stefanie whether the senator's daughter was named Flo.

Sorry. The original comment was from me. Didn't notice I wasn't logged in.

My better half pointed out that if Biden and Palin had a kid, they could name it Sneaux.

And just to be completely fair, it bugs the hell out of me that Obama named his daughter Sasha, which is a boy's name.

Sasha is not a exclusively a boy's name. Both Alexander (m) and Alexandra (f) can be shortened to Sasha. So see, Obama really can do no wrong:)

I happily stand corrected!

And just by way of full disclosure, my daughter's English name is Meret, after the artist Meret Oppenheim. Not the most usual name, although her Hebrew name is Esther.
