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 E-R.org, "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.
