Top Ten Tuesday

For some strange reason, I thought you might give a shit about some of my favorite and least favorite things. I won't make a habit of this (and I really mean it) but maybe once a month, I'll bust out a "Top Ten" list of something super random about myself, to let us get to know each other a bit better. Like my favorite flavors of ice cream or the worst songs in the history of the universe... which would basically just be a list of half Phil Collins and half Dave Matthews. (You get the point!)
One of my weirdest/oddest/stupidest obsessions is NAMES. I don't really give a hoot about the meaning behind them. I just like names. And I want to smack all the people in the universe who are naming their daughters stale, old lady names. Amelia, Zoe, Ava, Chloe, Sophia, Emily... I'm talking to you. (Sorry, Kimhead, to rain on your name parade!) Oh... and I'm an equal opportunity hater too. Please, seriously, for the love of everything good in this world... STOP NAMING YOUR SONS JACOB.
Don't worry... I fully expect you to criticize me, just as I have criticized you. You know who you are... mothers of Michael & Isabella. And let's not even get me started on people who use "filler" middle names. (Grace, Marie, Lynn, Rose... I'm talking to you now too!) Now that we've gotten that out of the way, how about some love for the names I'm drooling over at the moment?
So... in no particular order, both genders lumped together... My Top Ten Favorite Names (for the moment):
1) Troy
2) Killian
3) Declan
4) Kennedy (It pisses me off that people use this now, since I picked it out as my fave 18 fucking years ago!)
5) Eliot (girl)
6) Peyton (girl)
7) Seamus (It upsets me that I don't have a cool Irish last name, because if I did... you couldn't pay me to give up using this name for my unconceived son!)
8) Tristan
9) Adelaide (I know this goes against my hating old lady names, but it's also a place name, so that redeems it! Plus, I'd only use it for a middle name anyway.)
10) Hudson
*Note: Subject to change at any minute. It was hard to leave off the name Rhys too. Love it, only spelled that way and for a boy though. And if Puff gets his way, we may just end up with sons named Jermichael and D'Keith. At least they're creative! I did, however, tell Puff I was going to disown him when he said he was OK with "filler" middle names. Uh uh. Not in this house he isn't.*

Dude... Chloe and Zoe are not old lady names. And I just want to point out that I liked old ladynames like Amelia, Samantha, Adelaide LONG before they became popular. Damn tv making old lady names cool.

PS- Just as a reminder, when you name your future son Declan, I will call him Ducky. And buy him all Duck themed toys and clothes. Be prepared.

Dude, Declan will totally get all the ladies with that cool name! Just wait!

Jeremy says your list is full of actor/model and beer-guzzling governor names.

Sweet. Tell Jeremy thanks... that was totally what I was going for :)
