I never would have predicted Stanley. I am waiting for the return of Clarence, Lester and Herman.

A couple of years ago, I was working at a school where we had two girls named "Unique" (I guess it wasn't so unique after all) and two named "Beyonce."

Knox is usual? As a first name? Knox? What kind of sadist names his kid Knox?

Deb said...

Cap'n--Knox is popular because that's what Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt named one of their sons.

Frankly I think it's a step up from the name she gave her oldest son--Maddox. Everytime I hear that name, I can only think of Georgia's last avowed segregationist governor, Lester Maddox. What a terrible legacy to hang on a child.
