Thumbs down: Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon

http://www.celebrity-babies.com/2007/10/garcelle-beau-1.html

Actress Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon welcomed twin boys Jax Joseph and Jaid Thomas.

Grade: D

Comments: Wow, two chances, and still no results. Maybe she should have had triplets so at least there would be a chance of third time lucky. Jax is a terrible mis-spelling which may look trendy now but will look idiotic when he's a 60 year old grandpa. There are many subtle ways of using sound patterns in your child names, but alliteration (using two names starting with the same letter) is so tacky. Even worse is both the boys names start with J. Thats just cruel. (I'll give the topic of twins names later on.) And Jaid?? Are you kidding? Firstly its spelled retarded. And secondly, its a boy... some might thing its cute to give girls "unisex" and "tomboy" names but you want a girly son?? (More talk on unisex names, later, also). Poor kids. I wish they were named Jack, Joseph or Thomas.

What to work on for next time: Properly spellings of names, no doubling up on starting letters or in siblings first name starting letters, no inherent girls names for boys.
