    I don’t understand why people name their kids such odd names. They’re not pets and one day they will need to, you know, fill out job applications and whatnot. My kids have names that’re off the beaten path, but Saint and Bronx? Peanut? Apple? Come on.

  2. Tiffany27 says:

    His children are named Bronx and Saint. Alright then.

  3. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Aw…I know she’ll probably get flamed for criticizing a charity but I can’t help but admire how dedicated Pam is to animal rights.

    I had no idea that they were doing animal testing, although I assume that’s probably quite common in the field of medical research.

    • Kiddo says:

      Yeah. The attention she brought to those particular circumstances has me conflicted.
      ALS is such a horrible disease and I don’t know how you could jump directly to humans for experimental studies, without animal testing first, but at the same time, so many unnecessary tests are repeated and only serve to torture those poor little souls.

      I hope that stem cell research moves leaps and bounds so that we can end the suffering of animals and humans too.

    • Josefa says:

      Same here, I’m always rooting for Pamela. Like Britney, I think deep inside they have gentle and troubled souls that make me look past their tacky schtick and lack of talent. I don’t like how PETA operates but I like that Pam takes the issue so seriously.

      And “slams” makes her statement sound a lot worse than it was. She’s sharing her PoV very respectfully.

    • Jenny12 says:

      Yes, I agree with that. I love how Pam promotes animal rights.

    • Sisi says:

      Yes it is common in the medical field. I think it’s almost possible to say that medical research and medical trials would not exist if it weren’t for animal testing (sadly).

    • Jag says:

      One doctor has come out to say that 100% of the people he has treated for ALS and MS have tested positive for Lyme Disease. Just fyi if y’all didn’t know that.

      I agree with Pam here.

    • MollyB says:

      She has no problem filling her body with silicon and cosmetic procedures which are absolutely tested on animals but when it comes to life saving research? That’s where she draws the line?

      • Ag says:

        yeah… i do wonder if she uses cruelty-free cosmetics.

        doesn’t she also has hepatitis? i’m sure that he has to have regular treatment with medications that were, sadly, tested on animals.

        i like pam, but her ties with PETA really gross me out. PETA is terrible, spreads misinformation and blatant lies about any topic that might possibly bring them any income, puts out bizarre and misogynistic ads, and apparently has shelters that have higher kill rates than “regular” shelters.

      • Kiddo says:

        Not to be picky, and I think PETA can be too militant, but the conditions and quality of life of shelter animals, as well as adoption rates, may be more significant indicators of care than only looking at euthanizing rates. If you have overly aggressive animals who can not reasonably be adopted out, sadly, being put down may be the better option than remaining alive crammed in a cage forever. Of course there are cases where feral animals can be trapped, spayed/neutered and released, but that isn’t always a wonderful life either. The level of euthanasia is only one point amongst others.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      @MollyB-My understanding is that she got implants way before she was ever involved in animal rights. Even so, hypocrite or not, her silicone implants do not negate the fact that animals die very terrible and torturous deaths during lab tests.

      The point is that there hasn’t been a proven concrete correlation between animals and humans when it comes to testing. Additionally, stem cell seems to be the more accurate (and cost-effective) was to assess toxicity to humans.

      On that note, The Catholic Church is opposing the Ice Bucket Challenge and ALS charities because of embryonic stem cell research. Not so strangely, nobody seems to be criticizing them about it.

    • Bridget says:

      That’s pretty much ALL medical research, though. Everything is done at the animal stage before it’s ever tested on humans. I can appreciate Pam’s passion and commitment to animal rights, but we’re not exactly talking about testing mascara here. Research done now can have an incredible impact not only o those currently suffering from a disease that is 100% fatal (ALS), but also for the generations to come.

    • FLORC says:

      TOK
      My only issue with Pam is her support of PETA. Her heart is in the right place, but her support is horribly missplaced.

      As far as animal testing. It’s horrible. Animals are stressed and killed or lead a painful life. Not only for med or science. More to teach people in person what they can know through a video.
      During my undergrad I had to take a mouse. Record the heart rate. Then hold it underwater for a time and bring it back out to record it’s elevated readings.
      That’s a memory I hate that I have.

      With all of that said myself, and many of us are only alive because of advances made through the sacrifice animals have made.

    • ol cranky says:

      IDK Pammy looks like she’s had a lot of work and may use botox and fillers. Thousands of rats are killed each year to test batches of botox despite the fact there is a validated in vitro assay. . .

      I hate to break it to people but animal testing is required to be able to develop and validate the limited mathematical/computer modeling that is used to support medical research. It is difficult and costly to use animals in research, and grant money is very limited so it’s not done unless absolutely necessary. @Florc – I don’t know what class or why you had to do the experiment you did as I never had to do anything like that. I did, however, protest the use of fertilize chicken eggs in my pathogenic bateria lab for a bacteria that did not need to be grown in vivo.

      I glad I was doing DNA work back in my days at the bench because it meant I was able to use halothane to sac the rats I had to kill. I could have done the same for the mice I had to use but our lab always coordinated with 3 other labs that needed the same kind of mouse (they were neuro and physiology labs so it had to be a split second death as opposed to just falling asleep under anesthetic) so we could minimize the # of animals sacrificed. While there a @holes in any profession and some animals may not be treated well, by and large they are not treated poorly and they are not used just to show someone something they could easily experience through a video or computer modeling.

      BTW if you’d like to have a dog & your lease doesn’t allow dogs (but you can have other small animals), rats totally rock as companion animals. I hated sac’ing them so much.

    • Christina says:

      this is ridiculous…she has a disease herself. does she really think that her hep C medication was not tested on animals? very selfish and hypocritical…

  4. Jules says:

    What a douchebag……….he probably did it for relevance.

  5. Reece says:

    Is it weird that I’ve been listening to Sam Smith on replay for a week (or two, I lost count)? Falsettos from other countries appear to be my kryptonite *changes into my old Savage Garden t-shirt*.

  6. Blythe says:

    There is no gray area with these celebrities. I’m not asking that you name the kid Jacob or Isabella, but don’t jump out the window with Saint. Jimmy Christmas. That kid will definitely hate his name in the future, at some point. I once had a classmate named True Love. Yes, people. His first name was True and his last was, authentically, Love. What a joke. Unless you’re planning for your kid to be a chart-topping Billboard 100 R&B singer, leave those names alone.

  7. Kris says:

    Everyone is really surprised? His other kid is Bronx Mowgli.

  8. manta says:

    I just read that Dave Grohl and his wife named their third daughter Ophelia Saint. It sounds nicer as a middle name, and you actually feel that you read a child’s name not a pet’s as someone noted earlier.
    But I wouldn’ t worry like others about job applications or any obstacle of that sort.
    Those kids will go in schools with peers named following the same trend, they’ll never have to write a resume or apply to a job. They’ll be “models”, “musicians”, “artists” or something along this line.

    • Chris says:

      Hmmm, Ophelia? Bit doomladen.
      But speaking of names from Shakespeare, take Portia. Remember in A Fish Called Wanda, where Kevin Kline’s character wants to know why so-and-so named their daughter (Portia) after a car? Hee hee!

      (It’s interesting to think of names that seem to have died out….in my childhood there were Gillians, Pamelas, Doreens, Jackies, Susans, Fionas, gawd, the list goes on. Similarly you don’t find young boys called Trevor, Nigel, Reginald, Albert, Roger, Derek.)

  9. Dawn says:

    I still think it is better than being named a direction especially when you last name is also a direction or a fruit or just a made up name. I like what Stacy Kiebbler named her kid and that is simply Ava Grace. There will be need for that girl to explain.

  10. Chris says:

    Named after Pete’s favorite football team New Orleans.

  11. JustChristy says:

    I’ve always liked the idea of having several daughters with flower names. Poppy, Violet, Rose, or the name Pixi. Maybe I just really like fairy gardens. Also a fan of Sylvie, Annelise, Mallory…things you don’t hear a lot of, but aren’t like Nautilus Rainbow or Colossus Twerkington.

    For boys, I’ve always loved the name Jason, but where I’m from, it’s not exaggeration to say you may know 10, 15 guys with that name. There were five in my fourth grade class alone. It’s not as popular now as it was in the 80s/90s at least. It’s always seemed easier to be creative with girl names than boys, but I’ve long loved the idea of Bodie for a boy (which was my grandfather’s favorite place to visit), but my husband has so far has vetoed it.

    • Sushiroll says:

      LOL. Colossus Twerkington is brilliant! DIBS!

    • SamiHami says:

      I’ll never have children, but if I did, I swear I would have to name one Colossus Twerkington. That name is simply spectacular!

    • Jayna says:

      I love the names Matthew, Jonathan, John and Jack for boys. They’ve been done into the ground, but it wouldn’t stop me from naming them one of those just because others will have that name. I dated a John once and love that name for a man I actually dated two Johns, come to think of it. I Maybe it hearkens back to John F. Kennedy, Jr, why I love it, so handsome and John suited him. I wouldn’t feel the need to go to a different name just so a son wouldn’t have others with the same name in the class.

    • Jayna says:

      Naming all daughters flower names, that reminds me of the actress Poppy Montgomery. from the TV show Without a Trace. She was born in Australia, and her mother named them all flowers. Her full name is Poppy Petal Emma Elizabeth Deveraux Donahue. Talk about a mouthful, but Poppy Petal. LOL Being Poppy Petal didn’t seem to scar her, though. Of course, maybe it did. She hated school and was expelled from six schools and dropped out at the age of 15 to pursue acting.

      Here’s her siblings’ names. Rosie Thorn, Daisy Yellow, Lily Belle, and Marigold Sun, all named after flowers. Her brother was named after a rock band, Jethro Tull.

      • JustChristy says:

        @Jayna, minus Jack (which is another short, sweet boy name), most of those names already occur in my way huge family. Even Daisy, which I kind of like, but for that relative, nope. We have no Jasons, so it’s possible I’ll use that, should the need arise, although I really like Benjamin Bodie. Still have to work on the hubs for that one. ;) I’m actually more concerned with names that haven’t occurred in the family already than what might happen when my kid(s) (who don’t currently exist) goes off to school. I like the idea of finding a name that somehow represents something that was important to a special loved one, rather than just saying “your grandfather was Wayne, you shall be, too.” And even though it hasn’t been popular since before I was born, I was one of about three Christys at my school. Which meant I had to go by my given name, Christina, from about second grade on, which wasn’t the end of the world by far, I just never go by that. It’s not something my ears were used to, unless of course I was in trouble. Maybe that’s why I developed anxiety about school, people calling me a name that sounded like I was about to get it for doing wrong! :D

        I think it was Poppy Montgomery that the flower names idea came into my head. Goodness help me, I even like Jethro Tull (fan of the band, too.) I must have been a hippie in a past life :)

    I think Carey Hart is being a grumpy douchebag re: the ice bucket challenge. Don’t the folks who do the challenge also donate to the charity? The fact that the charity has received donations to the tune of 50 million dollars speaks to that. And why even tweet a pic of your donation receipt? Lots of people donated without doing the ice bucket challenge. You want a cookie, Carey?

  13. Erica says:

    Saint is a great strong name. My 15 month old son is Saint Noah.

  14. elle says:

    Im all for weird names… my sons name is Journey James. But, saint lazslo? Idk about this one…. i dont dislike the name Bronx, though. Its cool

    Ava grace is pretty, but way too common.

    News flash: Pete Wentz is still a douchebag.
