Do all Alaskans name their kids these weird non-name names? Bristol, Sarah Palin's 18 year old daughter is naming her son Tripp. What the heck is that supposed to mean?
Disclaimer: I'm all for unique names, mind you, but I think cool names are cool, and I don't think uncool names are cool. I think uncool names are uncool. However, it works out fine that it's a one-syllable name, because in America everybody gets a one-syllable nickname anyway. There seems to be some cognitive problem using more than two syllables too much. On that note, I never understood how William becomes Bill, or how Richard becomes Dick.
