Just needed to vent about a bunch of baby names we’ve been hearing lately. Piper, Paige, Lorali, Rory, Willow and Buffy. Ok, no one actually used Buffy, but I feel like if you are going to use a name from the 1990’s WB at the very least OWN IT. Don’t act like you have never ever heard of that TV show called Gilmore Girls, with quotes pinned all over your pinterest wall.
I know plenty of people will flame me and that Buffy is really a family name, but I find it frustrating.
I was named after a Dallas character, my mom never pretended that I wasn’t. It isn’t a bad thing, until I feel like you are trying to cover it up because you are embarrassed, in which case WHY DO IT?

So if I name my kids Raven and Moesha I can’t just claim it’s a coincidence??? 🙂

@edgebee: Just wanted to pop in and say that I am also named after a Dallas character. Wonder if it could be the same one?

I seriously have no clue what show had a “Paige” and I graduated in 2001.

@edgebee: hahaha I love this. As a spin off of this- I teach public school in NYC – you would not BELIEVE the names of some of my students. They should WISH they were named after a 90s character!

@calibee79: fair enough, then. Obviously not a show I watched often enough to make an impression and Paige actually is in the running for a middle name for us :). Guess now I might have to admit we named it after charmed!? Haha
that said my cousin is Mallory Justine after family ties (Mallory Keaton AND the actress who played her – Justine Bateman) and she admits it freely.

There’s a mommy blogger who named her son Cullen, and “had no idea” it was the last name of one of the main characters from Twilight.
Yeah ok lady. You run a successful mommy blog, so you’re internet savvy. The SECOND result on Google when you search for “Cullen” is EDWARD CULLEN.
I hate when people play dumb.

@edgebee: A rep for one of our vendors is named Buffy. I think she’s probably older than the show.

I can see all but Paige being popular due to shows. But I know a number of girls named Paige who were born well before Charmed began in 1998. It’s pretty popular on it’s own.
