I expect yesterday’s election is still the primary topic of conversation, which means our little pop-culture site is somewhat irrelevant in the world, if only temporarily. You just wait, though: By Friday, all anyone will be able to talk about is Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. And then where will the Daily Kos be? Yeah. And Wonkette? That’s right: Forgotten relics of the election season. Hey Advertisers! Look over here! Guess who’ll be reviewing Soul Men this weekend? That’s right: Not Politico!

But before we get back to things that matter (10 more days until Quantum of Solace), here’s something that really matters: One of the Supreme Eloquents, Kolby, was scheduled to have her child this morning. I assume all went well, and that she is now achy and beaming and exhausted and over-the-goddamn-moon.

As of this writing, I have no idea what the little Kolb’s name is. So, in her honor, let’s make it a diversion in the off chance she needs some inspiration. What’s your dream name? What would you name your child? Or, if you’ve already had children, did you get the name you wanted. In short: Let’s have a discussion of names. Who can win the award for most embarrassing nickname (Note: no awards given)? Favorite nicknames? Favorite commenter names? Commenter-name origins? (I, for one, would love to know where Skittimus Maximus comes from. And maybe Ranylt could enlighten us, as well.).

As for me: I was lucky enough to have a wife who allowed me to give our son my dream name. She has, however, sworn me to secrecy, though I can say this: He’s named after a musician. Also, I always wanted to be a Will. And I could never play favorites among commenter names.
