Welcome to Feminist Truths

We are reborn! Getting shut down by lawyers working for the mafia (it is a long story) hasn't put an end to Feminist Truths.

The good news is that Feminist Truths is back and I have made it my quest in life to deliver truth to the masses.

The Truth about Naming a Baby

WARNING: This isn't so much a feminist topic as it is a parenting one.

I think a fun part about getting pregnant (I am not yet, but still working on that) is that you get to pick a name for the child-to-be.

Note: This might explain why so many unplanned pregnancies result in children with either lame, traditional names or alternatively names like the ones given to the children of celebrities.

ie.
Christina Aguilera / Jordan Bratman Singer = Max Liron (son)
Erykah Badu / Andre Benjamin = Seven Sirius (son)
Erykah Badu / Tracy Curry = Puma (daughter)
David Bowie / Angela Bowie = Duncan Zowie Heywood Jones (son)
Toni Braxton / Keri Lewis = Denim Cole (son) and Diezel Ky (son)
Christie Brinkley / Peter Cook = Sailor Lee (daughter)
Nicholas Cage / Alice Kim = Kal-el (son)
Cher / Sonny Bono = Chastity (daughter)
Cher / Greg Allman = Elijah Blue (son)
Tom Cruise / Katie Holmes = Suri (daughter)
Courteney Cox Arquette / David Arquette = Coco Riley (daughter)
Bob Geldof / Paula Yates = Fifi Trixibelle (daughter), Peaches Honeyblossom (daughter) and Little Pixie (daughter)
Richard Gere / Carey Lowell = Homer James Jigme (son)
Teri Hatcher / Jon Tenney = Emerson Rose (daughter)

And so forth...

For me I want a name that is both strong and beautiful. And possibly gender neutral. I am open to unusual names, but nothing ridiculous like "Fifi Trixibelle" (which sounds like a name for a chihuahua).

I am even open to male names which could become gender neutral. ie. Andy Sam MacNevin. People would assume its Andrea Samantha. However I think that name is too plain so I want something with more spunky.

(I should note because I am thinking of having a natural pregnancy I won't know if its a boy or a girl. Thus its important that whatever I name the kid it should be suitable regardless of what sex they are born.)

For example what about Triangle (or Tri for short)? I admit its unusual, but I am attracted to the simplicity of it. Plus for fun the kid could sign their name in the shape of a triangle. :o

Suggestions?
