A few weeks ago, Deadspin posted a list of trendy girl names.
The reader who contributed the list said they were the names of girls participating in a “tumble and cheer” event. He didn’t mention their ages.
Here’s the list:
Deadspin editor Drew Magary wrote up a funny response. I won’t quote the whole thing, but here are a few lines. (I quoted more of it in Name Quotes for the Weekend #8.)
- “Well, this email has to be from Utah.”
- “Maccie! I hope she has a sister named Jayceepynny.”
- “I’d also like to single out Kyler for supreme awfulness.”
So let’s play a game with these names.
Pretend that one of your friends is expecting a baby girl. He/she shows you this list of trendy girl names and says, “We love all of these names! We can’t decide! Will you help us narrow it down to three?”
My three would have to be Addison, Kasey and Brooklyn. These just seem the least misspelled and/or ridiculous to me.
Which three names do you suggest to this friend, and why?
