    So, I’m watching CNN, and there is the editor of Redstate.com, Erick Erickson…and the name gets me thinking: how imagination-challenged must one be to name children as above, or Robert Robertson, or Steven Stevenson…or something similar.

    And an even more glaring of child abuse, is parents who name their children verbs.
    Imagine the poor kid, swimming, and his mom calls ‘Bob!’
    Down he goes.
    The more panicked mom becomes, the more the well behaved youngster dives under the waves!

    And worst of all, the poor soul named Neil, whose folks tell him to stand up, and trying to be a good boy, he bounces like a rubber ball!
    “Neil…”
    “Stand up!”
    “Neil…”
    “Stand up……’

    Any other disastrous appellations?
