Fan Mail #39

Dear Zen Angel:

my bad baby names are:


Zanevaha Aaliyah

Alazae Nevaha




Dear Anonymous:

In the subject line of your email, you wrote that these are "bad baby names (good names to me)." Are these names of people you know, or are they names you plan to use?

In any case, I will confirm that these are, in fact, Bad Baby Names. The first definately qualifies as a MOUTHFUL name. And Nevaha (and all its various and varied spellings) is probably my least favorite name on planet Earth. Not only because it is a Bad Baby Name, but because so very many people seem intent on using it. I probably get 20 emails a week about that name...more than about any other Bad Baby Name in existance (the fabled Orangejello twins not withstanding). I've yet to really understand the "plus" side to this name, the reason so many people seem to love it. I keep hearing, "It's the word Heaven, only backwards!" Well, isn't the backwards of Heaven, Hell? Just saying.

Good luck, reader! And thanks for submitting these!

Brad Paisley: The Grandparents Wanted to Kill Us!

Recently, country musician Brad Paisley opened up to the good folks at about his life, his family and his new album.

And of interest to us here at BBN? Information on the names of his sons, William Huckleberry and Jasper:

I gather other family members didn't quite warm to it like you thought they would?

"When we picked William as the first name of Huck -- which by the way no one calls him -- that was such a strong and classic name, of course they said, 'We love it!' ...and then we said, 'By the way, Huckleberry is the middle name.' They wanted to kill us! This time we tried it out and it was like, 'Oh, Jasper? OK, let me think about that.' ... and they [suggested] another name, like it was up for discussion! But anyway, I love it because I don't know any Jaspers."
