Thumbs up: Nancy Grace


Nancy Grace of CNN anchorwoman and lawyer fame has given birth to a set of twins, girl and boy.

Names: John David and Lucy Elizabeth

Grade: A -

Comments: Names which aren't crazily popular or trying to make her cool as she is a 'celebrity'. Both well thought out names named after special people in her life. Lucy and Elizabeth are adorable names, very sweet on a girl.

Things to work on for next time: John David is teetering in boring. Not as common on babies now, and a big improvement on the too common Landon and Brandons but still. A little bland.
As said earlier, Lucy and Elizabeth are lovely names but the sound patterns on them muck up a little. The ending "E" sound in Lucy and the starting "E" sound in Elizabeth run into each other. Not a MAJOR problem since they are different "E" sounds.
