Holy cow. (And I suppose there are innocent children with that as a name, too.) I had no idea ...

I have always felt mildly superior to countries which have lists of approved names, but no more. This is child abuse. Dare we hope that it is indeed a trend and not a lasting paradigm shift? What will a woman named DeLisha (one of the milder examples, you will admit)or Tongyel name her own daughter? And what kind of self-image must they have, these people with names that look like the result of sticking a spoon into alphabet soup and using the letters you get, regardless of pronunciation, let along meaning?

Come back, Mary, Sandra, Joan - all is forgiven!
