And in celebrity news...

McMommy totally got me on this subject and now I can't stop thinking about it.

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden just had their baby on the 9th.

Congrats to them.

I was really hoping for a good name from them.

I love Harlow's name. It is a bit overboard with the two middle names but I can deal. Harlow Winter Kate Madden. Cute, no?

Then they announced their baby boy's name. I threw up in my mouth a little.

Sparrow James Midnight Madden.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Everyone is all "I hate the name Sparrow. That is terrible."

Clearly, Sparrow isn't the only terrible part of this name.

I am not under estimating the terrible-ness of Sparrow. Here are my points.

Number one, he has 2 middle names. WTH? Why is this such a trend in celebs? Heck, why is this such a trend with the Madden's!? Calm your nervous system and pick ONE first name and ONE middle name like the majority of people in the world.

Number two, one of said middle names is Midnight. The name Midnight reminds me of a cat. If you are going to pick two middle names, pick good ones.

Number three, why did they throw the name James in there like it fit? I mean really? Where did that normal name come from? I can imagine talk around the dinner table of baby names. "How about Pussywillow? What about Leaf? Oh, I know. What about Saffron? How about Peacock? Fluffy? Hey, what about James? It really has a ring to it." Be serious people. James is a great name that totally doesn't fit in that nightmare of a name.

I can't quit thinking about it. Together now... Sparrow James Midnight Madden.

Totally sounds like a pornstar name to me. What? I'm just sayin'.
