News, but not the serious kind
Sometimes I despair for us all. And it turns out those are actually my giddy moments.
An item in the “New York Times” informs us that among the names that have gained the most in popularity in America over the last six years are Jayden, Landon, Addison, Khloe and several others.
What they all have in common is that I don’t know a single person with those names. Not one.
Perhaps I’m just hanging with the wrong people. That happens.
Another explanation is that these folks are from a parallel universe, where instead of naming children after a beloved relative or great statesman or writer, names come from fields I know nothing about, such as reality television or home dentistry.
