"Cold cold empty void", "Grandma's food for worms now". Atheist hymns, by Jamie R.

Swedish name statistics

Alfabetisk översikt (alphabetic overview) is particularly fun. It lists all the names (divided by girls and boys) given to a minimum of 10 kids from 1998 2005, and gives the actual number of kids with that name. (You can do that in a country populated by 9 million people).

Use the forest, Luke.

Okay...so best way ever to inaugurate a new thread? I went to Macdonalds to pick up a pre-moving breakfast for me and bleek. Asian girl who served me? IRISH

No way!

Looks like your name is rare, Ase.

In Sweden, yes. But, Åsa is quite common.

That moment when you have so much shit to do that you decide not to do any of it

You would not think there would be two women named Mascareen in the same city, but evidently there are.

I met my first real life Neveah yesterday. Her club kid parents were bumming change and cigarettes at the bus stop.

You were chained to a girl who would kill you with a look/It's a nice way to die, she's so easy on the eyes/She said "Let's get away" but you played it by the book/You're a warden's pet, she's a screaming suffragette

I came across a Clane yesterday.

I love Jesus, but I drink a little

There's a little girl named Beyonce that attends the school across the street from my house.

No wonder I slipped, and fell, and died,/Soaked by Zeus outside,/Soaked by Bacchus within./The odds were two to one/And they were gods.

A boy named Blaze dominated our peewee soccer game today. I really hate that name.

That is great news!

My mom's best high school friend just had her second grandchild: Caden. Brother to Adelyn. Last name rhymes with Phelan, so Caden Phelan. TOO RHYMEY.

EDIT: Also, there's a new Freyja at daycare. It's usually Freya or Freja, not both y + j, right?

I've never encountered a male Blaze anywhere, although I have run across two female Blazes in books. Now, if the mothers of the male Blazes would just spell it right, i.e., Blaise...

I think of Blaze as a stripper name, because of Blaze Starr.

Oh, yes. Her. That makes 3 that I know of.

I just can't find the time to write my mind the way I want it to read.

I read a memoir called "Raising Blaze" about a single mom and her son. I think he's mildly autisitc, or ADHD, or both. She also wrote the memoir "Waiting", about her career as a waitress.

Babylon Sister -- Sunday, October 22, 2006 -- 07:20:29 PM -- 16 of 16072

I had a friend who was a radio journalist and her professional first name was Blaze (she was a redhead).

Some of those combos are fairly nice.

Not a single Nevaeh or McKeighleigh. I'm disappointed.

My husband worked for a male Blaze. People would come into the resturant and try to pretend they knew Blaze to try to get seated without a reservation and say things, like "We have known Blaine (or Blake) for so long..."

His daughter's name was Bree.
