Wacky Wednesday -- What's In a Name

I look back fondly on the 80's, but not this fondly.

Couple fights to name baby 'Metallica'
Tue Apr 3, 4:15 PM ET

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Metallica may be a cool name for a heavy metal band, but a Swedish couple is struggling to convince officials it is also suitable for a baby girl.

So well-reasoned too:

"It suits her," Karolina Tomaro, 27, said Tuesday of the name. "She's decisive and she knows what she wants."

Apparently "Prudence" just wouldn't do. Perhaps Metallica has a much different ring in Swedish.

O.M.G. That is just awful. I swear, we're going to end up with kids named Watermelon soon. And you know the kids at school WON'T be kind.
By the way, I like the new banner!

Isn't that the truth.

Thanks on the banner. I recently got Adobe CS2 and am loving it. The foliage in the banner is done with Photoshop brushes you can download for free from Designfruit, a tip I picked up from Dooce.
