Hey Katherine, do you want to start it here or in Anything Goes?

I'd say Anything Goes, having just hijacked the Blackout thread over there to talk about my kids.

I wonder if her full name will be Ramona Gyllenhaal-Sarsgaard? Lots of A's! (Maybe they should have gone with Ramonaa.)

Bless her little heart, best wishes for her in her long, long life. I like to see old names like hers rekindled, but I doublt we'll ever see the revival of Beulah.

I think Ramona is a pretty name. My roommate is playing a woman named Ramona in our current musical. Is it really an old-fashioned name? It seems more modern to me, but I don't really know much about names.

To me, any name is old-fashioned that doesn't follow some current trend, like the surname thing or going with one of the top 5 most popular names, most of which sound something like Kaitlin or Nicholas.

Yeeeaaah! I read it in the paper today, so happy for them, gosh that must be one hell of a baby with two intelligent and beautiful people as its parents. And Jake as its uncle!  :)

What about that name though?

LOL...

How about Peter + Maggie = Peggie. That would have worked.

or Maggie + Peter = Mater. Make that the middle name and make the first Alma. Alma Mater, what do you think? And then it has a Brokeback connection, too.

Okay, maybe Ramona is not so bad after all.

Ramona? It was the 257th most popular name in the 1940s, and 241st in the 1960s, but dropped out of the top 1000 in the 1990s. Maybe they are hoping for a celebrity comeback or something. It makes me think of the "Ramona" books (Beezus and Ramona? something like that).
