One of my friends refers to his xwife as the Plaintiff. Cracks us up when he does.

I'm married to a meteorologist, and we've always referred to our kid as "Hurricane [her name here]". One day it occurred to us to look up that hurricane, and it turned out to be so horribly & unpredictably destructive that they retired the name.

When she got old enough to understand our joke, she Googled the phrase and was highly insulted. Worked like a charm...

I think it's a lot easier to name your kids from the hurricane lists (and much more appropriate) than to have to search through those 10,000-name baby books.


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

What about "RetireEarly" ?
Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.

How about Goneril or Regan? Or maybe Jezebel or Salome? I remember some scary female names from my favorite BBC production too: Livia, Drusilla and Agrippina. Or...Medusa!
