Dec 29th 2009 12:10PMExcuse me, Fiona Apple (Brilliant Singer/Songwriter), Fiona Hughes (Actress), Fiona Shaw (Actress from Harry Potter) Fiona Campbell (Sculpture).
I suppose you are named after Lou, the cashier from Spongebob Squarepants cartoons???? or maybe Lou Ann from the old black and white cartoons???
Dec 29th 2009 11:57AMI was a Scout Leader for about 7 years and I can tell you that most of my experience is that the stranger names are not just ethnic. I had a Tiegra (Tee A Gra), a Taimone (tuh MY o NEE), a Tekeyah (tuh KEE yuh), Charlena (Char LEE na), Luana (LOO ana), Tamika (tuh MEE ka), Tashara (tuh SHAR ah) as well as some unusual (for these times) classic names like Alexandria, Erin, Natalie and Bianca. I myself had a horrible first name as I was named after my grandfather and I chose to name my daughter after my grandmother but instead of choosing GLADYS, I chose her middle name to avoid being stuck like I was....
Even though my mother stuck me with a bad first name and an uncommon middle name (which I go by)...she gave me this advice when I was pregnant...
Imagine your child's name up in lights on a billboard. Then imagine it on the door of some professional office. Then imagine what it would sound like with the words - uncle, aunt, grandma, grandpa in front of it. If it passes the test you are good to go.
Nov 19th 2009 2:21PMIf I want a dinner party with all kinds of froo froo food and an elegant guest list, I would call Martha. if I wanted to sit down and eat, I guess I'd call Rachel. I like them both for different reasons and I actually cook a little like both of them...I just dont have enough froo froo friends to impress to go through all the 17 steps to make sure my turkey is perfectly browned. Doesnt it say a lot about Rachel that she was so super and gracious about it...just makes you want to hug her. Martha...not so much.
