This article says that my mom has an “undesirable” name and my dad has a “desirable” name.  Is this going to bring me to the therapist’s couch later in life?

    Hey. I’m the author of the book that article is about, Bad Baby Names. I’m glad you picked up on it. I can’t really say anything one way or another about “desirable” names, but there are definitely some “non-traditional” ones out there. If you and your readers want to see more, visit the book’s blog at Thanks again.
