    Got an email from a guy I went to school with. They just had a baby. They've named him "Tilman". What the hell kind of name is Tilman?

    I guess they can at least call him T-Bone.....or Mr. T....

    I think it goes with the same idea that kids shouldn't be scored with red pens or play games that have losers. Each child needs to feel unique and special. Personally I never had a problem with my un-original name. Mike Smith has a nice ring to it.

    I dont see anything wrong with Tilman. Now when you start naming your kids after fruit, we have a problem.

    There was a guy in my guard unit named Seven.

    My ex named our son Shane. I thought it was a good name until she told me that she spelled it Cheyne.

    Cousin of a high school pal was named Morning Star. She could roll j's two at a time, one in each hand. Ok, I don't know if that's true, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    And both make for good stripper names when they turn 18. I love parents who plan early.
