the junior high baby naming committee

i was having breakfast with my friend ed today, and somehow we got onto the subject of parents who choose bad names for their kids. and i mentioned an 11 year-old girl i know named Chestney, and we both groaned about how awful junior high could be for her. Ed said, there should be a junior high baby naming committee that every pregnant couple meets with to vet their baby name ideas. can you imagine saying to a group of 13 year-olds, “we’re thinking of naming our baby chestney; what do you think?”

    Kerry voters seem to favor Michael and Emily as baby names, while Bush voters prefer Jacob and Emma
