‘Dumb idea’ sparks new trend in baby names https://t.co/y0JkXs5p1b— news.com.au (@newscomauHQ) January 18, 2016
-Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard's daughter is called Lincoln; Mila & Ashton have daughter Wyatt; Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have daughter James; Mark Zuckerberg's daughter is called Max; and Leighton Meester & Adam Brody have 5 month-old daughter Arlo. Writer doesn't use examples of boys with girls' names (shock!).
-The writer laments the trend and asks, Has the political correctness pendulum swung so far that calling a girl Emma — the most popular name in 2014, reports the Social Security Administration — is now seen as a mild form of abuse? As is calling a boy Noah?
-Writer cites a study that suggests women with masculine names are more successful in male-dominated fields (SHOCK!), another that says people with more common names are most hire-able, and another which says children with uncommon names are more prone to delinquency.
-Writer's name is Reed.
