PD, you said, "I chose a new name for my new person--Tadah! Grace it was!"

Was your name "Tadah" or "Grace"? (just kidding).

I remember when half the women who were chosing new names chose "Mary" because Mary Magdalene supposedly had sex with Jesus, and half the men going thru breakings chose "John" because Jonathan was "a lover of David."

Why didn't anyone chose "Rex"? Surely Berg's dog Rex loved him.

Then there was Lamont. Berg blasted some parents who called their son Lamont (after Berg's childhood friend) saying, "Didn't you know that Lamont had backslidden"!?

But it was perfectly OK to call your kids "Mo'ammar".
