Recently, this TV Addict was having an email tête à tête with a fellow television blogger who just so happened to reveal that she was pregnant with QUINTUPLETS!
Okay, so the part about the quintuplets was added for dramatic affect — there’s only one baby [that we know of!] And contrary to online speculation, the baby is not the secret love child of one infamous fictional Los Angeles based plastic surgeon.
But in all seriousness, being a self-proclaimed TV Addict, I couldn’t help myself and emailed back, “Congrats on your first baby. Any names yet? TiVo works both for a boy or girl!”
To wit she replied, “We STILL don’t have a baby name chosen. Although, TiVo has potential. I like Christian and Sawyer, but my husband swears I’ve chosen them because of Christian Troy on NIP/TUCK and Sawyer on LOST! Ah, the TV influences never end!”
Which not surprisingly got me thinking. Have you, or do you know someone who’s ever gone as far as to name a baby after a favorite television character? Do you have a niece named Starbuck? A daughter named Rachel? A son named Fox? If so, it’s time to come clean and possibly get some therapy!
