1. There is no 'most perfect name ever'...perhaps a dip in theology classes would expose you to the inherent imperfection of the worldly realm.

2. Judge is only capitalised when it starts a sentence or is part of a title as in Judge John D. Caplan presiding, not when you're trying to be emphatic in print.

3. Who am I to judge? Well, the person who told her what her daughter's name actually means for a start. And anyway, I'm not judging her (although my gut instinct on this one is that brightness and intellectual curiousity aren't major factors) or her intentions in using the name, simply cluing her in to the controversial and loaded meanings and associations of the name and suggesting ways around that. You shouldn't ask questions if you can't handle honest answers and if you're going to judge someone as judgemental than you can't criticise them for judging someone's common sense to be slightly lacking - setting in judgement of someone for judging is called hypocrisy. They often cover that in religion also ;o)
