Okay, Talula does the Hula from Hawaii... why *from*? As in, she's from Hawaii? Or broadcast live from Hawaii? I heard about parents who wanted to sell their kid's names to the highest corporate bidder... not sure what ever came of that...

A friend told me about a woman who named her kids Kevin Costner Jr and Princess Sarah. And here in France, they once showed on tv siblings from Asian parents; they didnt know what to name their kids and wanted them to sound "white" so they named them... Fanta, Cola and Pepsi. Now they're adults but they don't want to change their names!
