I'm a bad person

My new favorite hobby is reading the iVillage pregnancy message boards and making fun of what people are naming their babies.* I was mostly on the April 2009 expecting threads but any of the boards meant for pregnant women are good. Something about prenatal hormones obviously makes women insane. Seriously, it’s like staring into a world I will never understand, although I think the woman who claims she’s naming her baby “Butter” might be in on the joke.

*Not actually on the boards. I only make fun of them out loud.

    I don’t want to link it on the off chance one of them stumbles over here. I do comment there sometimes, although with a different screen name than I use everywhere else.

    I find these women especially insane, since most of them aren’t looking for advice or suggestions, they’ve already christened these poor unborn children with unfortunate names. The best part is when they write four page rants about how their mother-in-law says “Svea” is a silly name, especially considering they’re Jewish, not Scandinavian*, but SHE SHOULD JUST SHUT UP IT’S MY BABY I CAN NAME IT WHAT I WANT. Or the woman who thinks “Tecumseh” might be too weird as a middle name, but plans to use Hebda for her son. See, now I’m afraid they’re going to find me and kick my ass.

    *Svea is Swedish for Sweden.
