Palin's kids names

I'm just weirded out by their kids names. Girls are Bristol, Willow, Piper. I'm ok with those names, although they do remind me of Charmed... Boys are Track and Trig... Where those the things they were good at in High School, or what?!? Track and Trig are not names, they are things. Did they think they were clever? Why not name them Biology, or English..maybe Football, or Hockey...Dear lord...

When I was little the neighbor kids were named after the planets.

You know my other name is Serenity, right?

I feel bad for the one that got named Uranus... Serenity is a nice, calming name...Track and Trig do not conjure up anything more than running and doing hard Math...

the naming comes up pretty early, like at the time of birth. How long are you gonna let the girl run around unnamed? I mean I have heard of procrastination, but come on.

The youngest girl sure can do a nice spit-shine on Trig's head, though.

I spelled "where" correctly. That's how it's spelled in every dictionary I've had the fortune of reading...

My real life name is not Grammar...Thank you very much...

Does it seem cruel to anyone else that they named their youngest son after a traditionally difficult math course when the child has Downs Syndrome?

Worst kid's name I heard was Paprika. I kept picturing the names of her siblings "Garlic Salt" and "MSG".

Worst one I ever heard was Placenta. I kid you not. The mom must have heard the word in the delivery room and decided that it would make a nice name. Yes, this was a girl, but still... ewwwwwwwwwwww
