Ike Getting No Respect When It Comes To Baby Names
What's a storm gotta do to make someone name their kid after it?
A lot more than Ike did, apparently.
"We did have several babies born over the weekend (I want to say about 6 or 7), but I don't believe any were given that name," Gale Smith, spokeswoman for the Methodist Hospital System, tells Hair Balls.
We find this difficult to believe. Not only would your kid be named after a deadly storm, he'd also be named after a known wife-beater.

And -- apparently, sadly -- no one has yet named their new baby girl Ikette.
What is the world coming to these days?
