    Awful town and even worse name for a child. 2:1 odds the kid ends up doing meth at some point.

    My wife just mentioned Evelyn as a possibility for the girl we have on the way. I kinda like it and immediately thought of this thread's Evelyn tangent.

    I think that’s more of a British thing. I don’t think I’ve ever met a Liam. My mom wanted to have me go by that but my dad quickly shut that down

    This made me think of this-

    Is it weird when parents name their kids shortened versions of names? Like Mike instead of Michael, Alex instead of Alexander, etc.

    Do you mean name them that rather than just calling them that? If so, yes. A grown man with “Bobby” or “Billy” on his driver’s license probably has it on his work shirt, too.

    There’s something very 1920’s about people doing this, definitely better than some of these modern make em up names though

    There have been a metric fuckton of Liams born over the last 10 years. Last year I could find is 2018 but it was the most common U.S. baby boy name that year. Liam is the new Aiden.
