Toussaint - what an interesting name!

I think the authors of the Bad Baby Names book where just looking for names they found ridiculous and probably did not pay much attention to a particular census takers capital G.

Some people just like to have a good laugh. You find the same attitude when it comes to names from other cultures. People find a name somewhere in the net and start making fun about. They do not realize that it is a normal name in another culture and that they person they met online never does have any problems with her or his name in real life.
