Palin clan nomenclature 


I, for one, am delighted that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have given birth to a healthy baby, and hope very much that they are successful parents. I admit that I have not encountered the name "Tripp" in this context -- in my world, Trip (usually with one "p") is a tiresome nickname for the third generation of the same name -- but I suppose if the baby's uncles are named Trig and Track, Tripp actually is, in some sense, the third. Indeed, given the precedent, we should all eagerly await the next male descendant of Sarah and Todd Palin. With Trig, Track, Tripp, and Todd already taken, what's left? Twig, Twang, Truck, Tractor, Target, and, I suppose, Tom, all leap to mind. Any other suggestions?

Is a simple "Thomas" too pedestrian?

How about Barack? Start at the beginning of the alphabet.

I think "Benito" or even Francois would be more likely than "Barack" in the Palin family, unless one of the daughters is of a mind to drive grandma Sarah insane.

How long before the ultra-left wing media starts attacking the kid?

If you're talking about Bristol, I say release the snark now! $300,000?? Good grief, hasn't their 15 minutes ended yet? Shouldn't it have?

It's obvious: "Trick". Pretty deft for 2 HS dropouts to turn $300,000.
