Well... even among more traditional names, I could never understand any parents who would call their own children "Dick" or "Gay"...

My sister's middle name is Gaye. I never asked my mom why she chose that name. It doesn't bother my sister though.

It is true that the word "Gay" should mean something else originally (which is happy and cheerful, a meaning that is positive and lovely...) than what people would immediately think when they hear it. It shouldn't really be that way, but unfortunately kids in school usually don't have that sort of considertaions... I am glad that your sis is happy with her middle name though!!

Others are going 'fruity' I have heard of Peaches and Apples.Angelina and Brad are in Namibia, there is talk of giving their baby a name from Namibia. Yes there is talk of a national holiday,something is certainly wrong with the world, noone declared a national holiday when any of us were born? Or am I wrong? Anyone out there?

Gay is a Scottish surname. I have a friend who rejoices in said name.... She doesn't mind it, but her two brothers certainly do

I scored a 24 on the test and I truly don't follow celebrity stuff at all. I couldn't help but hear a couple of them, like Apple, but I just picked out a name that sounded like it would come from these people, and was right on all but 2. They are more predictable than I thought.

Well, I did get Thanksgiving when I was born, but I'm thinking it was there about 190 years before me

And don't forget madonna's son, Rocko. (or is it Rocco?) Either way, he sounds like a mobster from the Flintstones.

Then there's Cher's daughter, Chastity.
