Passing up what could possibly be the naming opportunity of the century, Minne Driver has chosen the name of her kid in advance. If it is a boy, his name will be Thomas, and if it is a girl, Isabella.
While I would never suggest names that are clearly outrageous, like Pile or Drunk, I think the last time this subject was broached, all of the comments from you readers were constructive and she could have gone with something traditional, but still fun like Screw. I mean there must be thousands of kids every year who are named Screw, but how many of them get to be a tool AND a delicious adult beverage all with one name.
My guess is though that Nicole and Keith stole her thunder when they took Sunday. I mean Sunday works well for male or female. She has said her favorite group is The Sunday's and still Sunday Driver is just funny enough where everyone can get a laugh, but not so dumb where the kid is getting his ass kicked everyday.
Now though, the kid has no chance to do anything fun with the name and I think that is an opportunity lost.
