But nobody asked me…
Phinnaeus Walter?! Let’s hope the kid develops his father’s washboard abs.
Well, I suppose that’s better than Paltrow’s baby name: Apple. Yuck!
Don’t do it Karol ! Athos and Artemis are much cooler. But D’Artagan is cooler than Porthos.
I believe in simple, non-flowery names for male c
Examples include, but are certainly not limited to: Joe, John, Dave, Jim, Jack, Bob, Sam, Mike, Rick, Greg.
WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS?!? Isn’t there some maternal instinct that’s supposed to kick in and prevent people from giving their kids names that get them beat up all through junior high?
Dude, do you people really think anyone is going to beat up the kids of Gwen Paltrow, Julia Roberts or Chris Rock (Lola Rock)? You’re cracked. They are going to be sucked up to until they get their own reality shows where they can embarrass themselves and their parents and then get a record deal.
I had 4 girls and always wanted to name one of them Monserrat. My husband was fine with it but my family wigged out. I was weak. So I say hold firm to d’artagnan.
Also I think it was Athos and Aramis not Artemis who was a greek goddess and twin of Apollo. I think…I could be wrong.
You’re right my bad. I should not confuse Bishop Aramis with the pagan Artemis.
These kids can expect to be beaten in school. When we were expecting our kids we even tested out the initials as we considered names.
Phinnaeus and Patricia…
What’s next, Bigus Dicus and Incontinentia Buttox?
This just goes to show the whole provinciality complex that our attention-obsessed elites suffer from. They would die tolook sophisticated and worldly.
Aristocracy my ass, really. Why not skip the whole Roman business, and name your children Jawaharlal and Chidambaram?
Karol (with a “K”),
Hazel and Phinnaeus were once fairly common.
One is a color and the other a good biblical name.
Of course, I expect that the kids will go by Patricia and Walter as adults.
