Today's question is inspired by a news story about crazy names!

So, if YOU had to be named after one of the 50 U.S. states, which would you choose?

BONUS QUESTION: Which would you choose for that girl that you don't like very much who thinks she's better than everyone else and totally has it coming?


Personally, I'd go with Montana. It holds a special place in my heart and it's not too wacky.

And I'd give "that girl" the name Idaho. She could try to shorten it to Ida, but we'd all know. Teehee!

lol Julie (or montana hehe). Umm Your making me think here about the states (with a pregnancy brain at that lol). I suppose Dakota would work (it is acually used as a name even). I would leave off the South/North unless I had to pick then maybe north I dunno lol. For the girl who is a butt. Hmm Mississippi or Arkansas (don't know why. mississippi is hard to spell and it says pp in it and arkansas makes me think of really old cow boys).

If I had to name myself after a state, I'd pick....Maine. Why? I have no idea, but it's somewhere I'd really like to go!

For the bitchy girl that I've hated all my life, I'd go with Idaho (that's fricken HILARIOUS, BTW) or Massachusetts. That would be torture to spell!

Oh Julie, you crack me up! I think Idaho is a very fitting name for "that girl".

For myself, I'd choose Carolina. No reason in particular, though. I just like the way it sounds.

Great question! I agree with you on "that girl". Idaho is perfect. hehehe. For myself: Hmmmm. . . .maybe Arizona. I have no idea why. It is different without being too crazy.

What state would your DH/SO be? Mine would probably be Tennessee because of the music culture of the area. Although country music is not his favorite, he loves all genres so would probably get a kick out of that. LOL.

I like the DH/SO bonus question!

Mine is from Hawaii, and half his friends already call him Hawaiian, so I think he'd stick with that!
