Kristin Cavallari gave birth to her third child, a baby girl, named Saylor James


I honestly love a good fight about a baby name. And we’re going to have one today, I’m sure! Kristin Cavallari has welcomed her third child, a little girl. Kristin is only 28 years old and she’s already got a three-year-old (son Camden Jack Cutler) and a 1-year-old (son Jaxon Wyatt Cutler) and now a newborn. Kristin is just one of those women… she just likes to have babies. I think she has really easy pregnancies or something. And maybe they were trying for the girl, which they got on Monday.

Now, for the name. Think of every baby-naming trend out there. Think of all the dumb names celebrities give their children. Think of the already somewhat questionable names Kristin has given to her sons. Now take a deep breath. Kristin and Jay Cutler named their baby girl….

Saylor James Cutler

SAYLOR. As in “Sailor” with a Y. Like Jackson with an X. I absolutely loathe that baby-naming trend. Or should I say, I hate that baby-name-spelling trend, where you give a baby a decent enough name and then you just mess with the spelling because “OMG, so original!”

As for the middle name… is Kristin deliberately aping Blake Lively? Blake notably named her baby girl James, because ORIGINAL and ARTISINAL. But I think we have to give Blake some begrudging credit. At least she put the “James” up front and just owned her twee baby-naming skills. Kristin is just terrible at baby-naming. SAYLOR. Ugh. I cannot get over that. It’s like Kristin wants her daughter to compete in toddler beauty pageants. That’s what the name says to me. “Hi, I’m Saylor Cutler, I’m three years old and I’m wearing false eyelashes!”

Two more things. One, Kristin named her daughter after a dog she met. Seriously. Two, Bristol Palin has announced she’s also going to name HER daughter Sailor.

    and lil Saylor won’t have to worry about those pesky vaccines will she? ugh

    • Esmom says:

      Lol. And, yes, ugh. You’d think with Cutler’s health issues they’d be better informed.

    • UGH! Why not a classic, timeless name like Elizabeth or Sarah? Not trendy enough? This family is insufferable! Thanks for leaving Chicago, our city is thrilled to see you go.


    • Scal says:

      Ding! This kid is going to end up being homeschooled as she won’t be allowed in California public schools, so her having a weird name won’t be a issue.

    • MoochieMom says:

      Saylor isn’t coming to my house for play dates. Vaccinate you kids.

  2. Sayrah says:

    I don’t care what she names them but please vaccinate your children!

  3. Ayra. says:

    I quit, I feel horrible for letting out a chuckle. I just can’t with these names anymore. Let me be all artistic and name my kid Mufasa. 🙁

    • Bichon says:

      I hear you: Saylor, Mayson, Ryson, Hayson, Jayson, Ashson, They’re all alike.

    • Elisabeth says:

      I named my daughter Cate. (not short for anything) and I still get people calling her Caitlyn or Catherine. I’m like ‘no…just Cate’ nice and simple

      • Sayrah says:

        My daughter is also Cate but it is technically short for Catherine. I often forget until we’re at a doctor appointment and they call for Catherine.

      • Falula says:

        I have an Olivia Catherine and we almost did just Cate. But she is named for my best friend of 20+ years who is Catherine so I decided not to shorten it.

        We also have that doctor’s office official name problem. My son is John but almost exclusively called Jack.

      • mayamae says:

        I have a friend who named three of her boys – Jake, Ty, Sam.

    • Chaucer says:

      Yes, Mr. Chaucer and I might not be perfect parents, but at least wr’re not giving Mini Chaucer a horrid name. I’m going to send him this, he’ll get a chuckle out of it.

      ‘Trendy’ names are really, really popular where i’m from. I met a small girl named Adder the other day. Like the g-damn snake. NOPE.

      • Me too says:

        Yep. My baby girl is one of the only traditional names in her K class. Ugh…. It isn’t special or unique if EVERYONE is doing it. You are just being a lemming and are ‘date-stamping’ your child with a trend that will most certainly identify an era.

    • pf says:

      The misspelling of baby names is the downfall of society. When I used to teach, half of my class was full of Jazmynes and Ashleighs and Braydens and Koltens…and Beyonces (there A LOT of little kids with this name, believe it or not). I feel so bad for them because when they grow up no one is going to take them seriously, well except for the Beyonces. 😉

      Sailor is already a little “different”, so what’s the point of spelling it wrong except you want to look like a complete idiot? And Saylor Cutler certainly doesn’t roll off the tongue easily. I think there is a backlash against these stupid names, as some people I know are going the opposite end with more traditional names like Edith, Mary, Peter, and George.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Actually, Sailor isn’t all that different any more. In the past six months, friends, neighbors, and family members have brought two Sailors and two Saylors into my life. And two Sawyers. And these names are crossing gender lines. One Saylor and one Sawyer are twins.

      • Kate says:

        Ashleigh and Brayden are old, legitimate alternative spellings for Ashley and Braden, which are both old, traditional English names. In fact, I’ve always seen it spelled Brayden more often than Braden.

      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        Christie Brinkley’s daughter’s name is Sailor Lee Brinkley-Cook, so I guess, she was ahead of the curve.

        But, I agree, Cavallari and Cutler are nauseating.

    • pk says:

      Arya – there are actually people named Mufasa. It’s an ethnic name and there is nothing wrong with it.

      • Ayra. says:

        I was referencing The Lion King, so no harm intended. I’m just thinking of the people who name their child after anything and everything, a rare plant, A DOG, a lion, an ex-girlfriend, without going into the meaning or thinking of the poor kid through possible middle school bullying.

  4. MG says:

    Christie Brinkley’s daughter is named Sailor. So sorry Kristin and Bristol, this is nothing new.

    • Amide says:

      Funny thing is Cavallari bitched on twitter about Nick Lachey ‘copying’ her when he dared to name his son Camden. Then she turns around and ‘copies’ herself with Sailor and James!

      • pf says:

        Yeah, because she “owns” Camden. She might want to talk to Camden, New Jersey, which has been around for…I don’t know…hundreds of years.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      Oops sorry, I just saw your comment after I posted mine. 🙂

    • imqrious2 says:

      I’m old, lol, so I remember a sitcom called “Mad About You”, starring Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt. Her character was named “Jamie”, but he occasionally called her “James” (which was later found out to be her “real” name (on the show)). So, we’re going allllllll the way back to the 80s for that one! 🙂

  5. Jegede says:

    I think Blake’s baby was named James to honour Ryan’s father who was ill for a long time and recently passed away. Doubt it was to be trendy, or twee.

    And Blake was/is a guy’s name for the longest (Shelton, Carrington) so maybe it was family tradition.

    • Amide says:

      Yeah I read about that somewhere before James C Reynolds died.
      The name James seems to have become the celeb name of the year. Male and Female.
      Lively kicked it off. Then Coco Rocha, that Jenner boy, Lauren Bush (for her son) and now Cavallari. But boys name for girls seem de rigeur now. Hailey Duff named her daughter Ryan, and Odette Annable named her daughter Charlie- NOT short for Charlotte.

      • mayamae says:

        Using a traditional boy name for girls has been going on for years. Hunter, Adrian, and Taylor come to mind. I have a name that was exclusively a boys name until the ’60s. The only girl I knew for years with my name was my younger cousin.

        And to add to your celebrity list – Jessica Simpson named her girl Maxwell, and Mila Kunis named her baby girl Wyatt.

    • Kitten says:

      Personally, I really like the name James for a girl.

    • Lilalis says:

      After two boys, why not choose a girl’s name for your daughter?

    • Carol says:

      Yes, Ryan and Blake’s daughter was named for his father James, who recently passed away after suffering with Parkinson’s for years.

  6. Castor & Pollux says:

    Awful. Just awful. I thought my parents naming me after one of my dad’s ex-girlfriends was a cringe-worthy naming story. Nope, this lil’ lady tops that…”I was named after a dog!” It amuses me to no end that Kristin didn’t have the good sense to keep that bit of information private. But then again, we are talking about the vaccine princess here…

    • Brittney B. says:

      Oh man, don’t leave us hanging… named after your dad’s ex? What’s the story there?!

    • Andy says:

      I really don´t get what is the thought process in this cases, but I don´t know, maybe in the case of your naming there´s a good story, I have a neighbor named after her father´s mistress, no good story there.

  7. Ivy says:

    When Taylor is too mainstream… yeah, just go for Saylor. Maybe the kid will like Sailor Moon when she grows up and develop a grudge at her parents for spelling it with a ‘Y’.

    • Shambles says:

      I’m so glad someone said it. Would have been so much better as Sailor Moon.

    • mayamae says:

      Well, but Taylor is not spelled tailor. I’m assuming it was changed to be a name, versus an occupation. Maybe it’s the same with Saylor.

  8. Goats on the Roof says:

    Saylor is actually very trendy right now. I’ve two friends who’ve named their baby girls that in the last 8 months. I loathe the name, but it’s not like Kristin made a unique choice.

    • Esmom says:

      Never heard of it. And I didn’t even think of “Sailor” when I saw it, I thought of Taylor with a typo. Name trends are strange. Madison was the big trendy girl’s name when my kids were born.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I loathe it as well, but I do have an acquaintance with that name. It was her mother’s maiden name, with that spelling, so at least it makes sense. I actually feel angry about girls being named James. So ridiculous. Of me, I mean.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      I don’t have a huge problem with Saylor, except the poor girl’s gonna have to spell it for people the rest of her life. But SayLOR CutLER??? You do have to sound out the whole name just to make sure.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      I said that above too before seeing your post. Saylor, Sailor, and Sawyer = trendy.

  9. Nancy says:

    She’s very trendy. Saylor James is cute. There was a period awhile back when boys names for girls was the thing. Too bad she doesn’t put in as much thought in vaccinating her children as she does naming them.

  10. Jessica says:

    Like Sailor Moon?

  11. Maum says:

    Didn’t Liv Tyler name her son Sailor? At least be brave and go for Seaman… 🙂

    Or as Ivy said Sailor Moon. As an anime nut I would have probably found that quite cute.

    Oh and by the way there are no words for Jaxon…. *sigh*

    • Nancy says:

      Christie Brinkley has a kid named Sailor, who I’m sure is approaching adulthood by now.

    • Esmom says:

      Agree about Jaxon. Anything with an “x” substitute like that makes me stabby. That poor kid.

      • Goats on the Roof says:

        Quite a few of my friends jumped on the ‘Jaxon’ or ‘Jaxen’ bandwagon. Just terrible. I feel it takes a name that’s already quite nice and trashes it up.

      • Esmom says:

        Yes, that x sends all dignity down the drain. I just imagine the kid as college or post college age, having to spell it out for someone. Cringeworthy.

      • Schmoopy says:

        I know someone who named her son Jaxson. The ‘s’ annoys me. It just seems phonetically unnecessary.

      • swack says:

        @Schmoopy, but to me the “s” sound in now more pronounced with Jaxson. I was thinking that “Jaxon” was pronounced like – Jacks on – and to me was not as smooth as “Jaxson” because this version (again to me) gets me closer to the original name: Jackson. It’s just the way I’m pronouncing it, I know.

      • Aurelia says:

        Totes hill billie !

    • Falula says:

      I have an acquaintance who has a Jaxon but another acquaintance who went to the NEXT LEVEL and went for Jaxson for their son. Every time I see it written out on Facebook I shake my head.

    • imqrious2 says:

      In my teaching years, I had: Jaxxon, Jaxon, Jaksin, Jakkson, Jaksun… Honestly, I don’t think these idiots should be allowed to name kids, let alone procreate! SMDH

  12. Jwoolman says:

    I see name-shaming is alive and well here. Really, every name is new when it is first used. The only names I would get bothered about are ones that have meanings in the native language that are obscene or will induce automatic laughter (sometimes when paired with the last name, such as the unfortunately named West firstborn) because of those meanings. Different spellings are fine, many ordinary words and traditional last names are fine as first names, and kids may decide to change the spelling on their own at some point (or change their name entirely). This woman’s children have names that sound and look nice to me.

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      Can we PLEASE stop chalking any bit of criticism up to ‘shaming’? It’s lazy and tired.

      • Pedro45 says:

        Agreed. We are not shaming, we are gossiping. There’s a difference.
        But I will shame her all day long for not vaccinating her kids. She’s a moron for that.

      • Nancy says:

        GOTR: 100. These people chose a profession where they put themselves in the public eye, good or bad. This is the part many of them don’t like and many of them relish……the attention. Not liking a name is hardly shaming….I am also sick of that term and wish it would go away. @Pedro45: Isn’t that the truth.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Really, name-shaming? Disliking and criticizing or joking about something is not shaming.

      • Susan says:

        Good to see the overly sensitive political correctness police is alive and well.

    • SugarQuill says:

      Oh, I’m TOTALLY name-shaming and judging her and everybody else who decides to take a perfectly nice name such as Jackson (not my cup of tea, personally, but compared to the atrocity that is JaXon, it’s fantastic) and butchers it. And I’ve always thought that there should be only one acceptable spelling of each name. It would create a lot less confusion than having a million ‘misspelled’ versions exist on top of three or four ‘acceptable’ spellings (e.g. Catherine/Katherine/Katharine/Kathryn, which already leaves plenty of room for error, plus abominations such as Cathyryn, Katharyn, etc.). And don’t even get me started on the Dweezils, Moon Units, Pilot Inspektors, and the like. Phew, rant over.

      • Nancy says:

        Lest us not forget Mycal. My son has classmates with that beauty which always upsets me because Michael is a great classic name. Stop messing around with perfection trend seekers.

      • SugarQuill says:

        ClassmateS? As in more than one? *bangs head against the wall*

      • Nancy says:

        Now stop head banging SugarQuill! I should have been more succinct and said has “a” classmate as opposed to an army of Mycals! He is a cute little guy. I have a dear friend named Franca, who we of course have always called Frankie…love it, for those upthread who don’t like boys names for girls.

      • SugarQuill says:

        Ha, I feel much better now knowing that it’s only one classmate. And, of course, no shade whatsoever to the little guy, he can’t help the fact that his parents decided to treat the spelling of his name as a creative writing course.
        Re: Franca/Frankie, I think both are lovely. I don’t even have a problem with naming a girl James. It depends on the name, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

      • swack says:

        @Nancy, try Antijuan (an – twan). Had a student with that name and had to ask how to pronounce it.

      • Nancy says:

        Holy crap swack, poor kid. I would imagine as a teacher you see them all. Ai yi yi

      • swack says:

        @Nancy, my first thought was what did the parents have against the name Juan? I’ve seen some, but have a friend who works in a children’s hospital in the city and has seen some real doozies.

      • Sam says:

        I have a co-worker named Danyell. Let that sink in.

        I have nothing against her as person, she is lovely. I don’t even take issue with unique or weird names in the least. But STOP misspelling already established names. This is not the 90s, we’re not hooked on phonics anymore, people.

    • Kitten says:

      Ha ha…I wouldn’t go as far as to say “shaming”, but I also don’t get why people have such a strong interest in what other people call their kids. I swear, I’ve seen more outrage on these boards regarding celeb baby names…

      So I guess I’ll sit alone in the corner because overall I generally don’t GAF what people name their kids, as long as they raise them well. But if pressed, I’d have to admit that I actually like non-traditional names. I grew up surrounded by Mikes, Peters, Patricks, Kevins, Jennifers, Lindseys, Jills, Sallys etc etc. so I personally enjoy the change.

      • Nancy says:

        I have an unusual name, at least in the States, so I come on here with my grandma’s name. Sometimes it’s nice to blend in…..but I do appreciate having a name that isn’t on the top of the most popular list. Happy Thanksgiving Kitten!

      • Jegede says:

        @Kitten –

        It might be wrong of me but any baby girl that is not named, flipping ‘Ava’ (!!!), AGAIN, is alright by me.

      • Kitten says:

        @Nancy- That’s the same for me. My name is uncommon around here (it’s a French name) but not completely crazy. Same with my brother’s name: we both have *relatively* unusual names. Happy Thanksgiving to you too, my friend 🙂

        @Jegede-I have three friends with daughters named Ava!

      • Nancy says:

        Okay Kitten, now you just know I’m going freak out trying to figure out French names! I’m a bit OCD….lol….Kitten is nice though, peaceful with the cute little avatar. BTW, I have an aunt that was born in France and her name is Irene, but that isn’t uncommon, just old fashioned. When we were kids we called her Aunt Blondie!

    • Wellsie says:

      LOL (literally) at “name-shaming”. Now I’m comment shaming because COME ON.

    • SMDH says:

      Hahaha “Name-shaming”? Cheers to a new type of shaming added to the already pack list. You learn something everyday.

  13. Locke Lamora says:

    In my country you can’t really make up baby names, it just doesn’t work. We also have maybe 3 unisex names. So the way anything can be a name in the US is quite fascinating. The misspelling trend is awful, though.

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      I like that we have the freedom to be creative, but some people REALLY abuse the privilege. I work with an MD whose given name is Princess. Yes, Princess. She started going by her middle name as soon as she graduated because she knew being a female doc with a ridiculous name would be just one more hurdle to being taken seriously. It’s like people never realize that these babies with these cutesy names are going to grow up.

      • swack says:

        Get that for normal every day people. Unfortunately very few of these celeb children will need to worry about were the money will come from and don’t have to worry about their names.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        The legal name of one of my doctor’s is King Arthur, a name he chose himself as a child when his family immigrated here from Asia because he had read and liked the Arthurian legends.

      • word says:

        I really think Kim and Kanye are going to name their son King.

      • imqrious2 says:

        I had a principal whose first/ middle names are “Precious Jewel”. Hand to God, I kid you not. She also had a license rim that said: “I live to shop” on top, and “At Nordstom” on the bottom. You really just *can’t* make this sh*t up! lol

  14. Mellie says:

    How about Saylor Jerri…you know a twist on the rum with the same name?

  15. Jen43 says:

    I hate that girls are stealing all the boy names. Pretty soon, there will be nothing safe to name your sons. Hands off the name Luke, new parents of baby girls. That is my only son’s name.

    • SugarQuill says:

      Not sure if your comment was meant as a joke, but would it really be so terrible if your son happened to share his name with a girl? The male Dylans of this world seem to be doing just fine.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      The thing that kinda bugs me about the whole girls-get-boy-name trend is that people don’t do it the other way around. Where are all the little boys named Amanda or Jennifer? It still puts men above women.

      • Kitten says:

        Growing up, I knew a guy named Ashley and I also knew a guy named Stacey so yes, it does happen.

      • SugarQuill says:

        Hm, I see where you’re coming from with this question. Maybe the boy names that end up being used as girl names simply lend themselves better to that sort of thing. I think most of those names aren’t considered to be, for lack of a better word, masculine sounding. Dylan, Blake, etc. seem kind of gender-neutral to me, although they started out as boy names, whereas Jennifer and Amanda sound distinctly feminine to me. That might be a personal bias of mine, though, I don’t really have a good explanation for it.

        ETA: Yes, good point, Kitten! I forgot about Ashley. I think it might fall into the same category as Blake and Dylan, neither super-feminine nor super-masculine.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        If I’m not mistaken, Ashley was first a male name.

        And I agree about names like Dylan, but James and Wyatt are completely male sounding names ( to me at least, I’m not a native speaker).

      • Jen43 says:

        Ashley, Stacey, and Tracy were all boys’ names originally. I guess I am showing my age.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        Kitten, those names, along with Leslie, Marion and a few others, used to be boys names until mid-20th century, when people started to use them mostly for girls instead. Even today though, Stacey is generally the masculine spelling and Stacy without the “e” is the feminine version, or else spelled Stacie.

      • Kitten says:

        Oh I don’t doubt that they were originally boys names. My point was simply that they have been some of the most popular names for girls over the years. Regardless of origin, they are still names mainly given to and associated with females, which was my friend Ashley always got mail addressed to him with Ms. Ashley Sampson instead of Mr. Ashley Sampson.

        Oh and don’t forget “Morgan”.

      • Lurker says:

        I went to uni with a guy named Allison. He was 6’5″ and about 250 easy. Huge dude. Hated being called Al. He was Allison, and he owned it. It was a family name. Given his size, no one ever made fun of it. Ever.

        Lindsay and Kelsey were also boys names originally.

      • mayamae says:

        There are still Southern boys named Shannon and Shelby. I like boys names for girls, but not the opposite. I happen to have a traditional boy name that has been a girls name for thirty or more years.

      • kate says:

        Once something formerly masculine becomes feminized, men either drop it like a hot potato or create a new hierarchy of value that places women’s pursuits at the bottom of the pile. So much of what we think of as hyper feminine these days was originally masculine. Names, fashion, jobs.

        I swear if women suddenly entered coal mining or mechanics en masse within a year men would consider those things girly jobs.

    Okay, well if Kristin and Bristol are doing it, then I am naming my child Sailor too, but I will spell it Bill and roll my eyes every time someone mispronounces it.

  20. HeyThere! says:

    I think this is my least favorite name ever. It sounds like the name you announce before a stripper takes the stage!!!! And the ‘Y’?! Why!?

    • mayamae says:

      Oh, I don’t know. It’s awfully hard to beat to beat Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily for least favorite.

  21. word says:

    I don’t mind the name. I’m actually sick of the name Sophia. Ok that’s my niece’s name and I wasn’t happy when they chose it but hey, it’s not my kid. Whenever I’m at the mall, or anywhere actually, all I hear are parents calling out to their daughters “Sophia…sophieeee”. I must meet at least 10 Sophia’s a day. It was the most popular name a few years ago. It’s like “Jennifer” from the 80’s.

    • Ange says:

      Yep, and Ava as mentioned above, and Olivia and Harper. I’ve seen Evies and Evas and Evelyn and all that – the old school names are back in a big way. I AM really sick of the first few mentioned though haha.

  22. Penelope says:

    For some reason, the name Saylor doesn’t bother me (except for the dumb spelling). It doesn’t go well with Cutler imo, though.

    Didn’t know she was one of the anti-vaccine people. That’s a shame.

  23. Nancy says:

    Cat fight alert: Bristol Palin claims she is naming her daughter the same thing and how coincidental it was Kristin chose the same moniker! My lands, in 20 years, there will be a fleet of sailors out there. Damn reality tv.

  24. L says:

    These names are not cute or trendy. They’re trailer park names.

    • Mop top says:

      This times a million! You give me a person’s first and middle name and i can tell you their general family income and the time period in which they were born. Names are very telling, whether you like it or not.

  25. elle says:

    Did she always look exactly like her husband?

  26. Sara says:

    I don’t think Kristen is having children quick because she just loves babies. I think she wants to lock this marriage in and make it hard for it to be finished and him walk out without public ridicule. That and she reminds me of a few women today who think having a babies very close together is a way to save their relationships. The ” See we are happy because we just had another baby again” mentality. JMO

    I don’t hate the name Saylor. It just should not paired with James.

    On a side not, Cutler looks like he aged 10 years since 2012.

  27. Bee says:

    A close friend of mine taught second grade for seven years in a rough school here in Atlanta. One Fall, she actually had a student listed on her roster with the first name “Shithead.” She was dumbfounded and horrified but before she had to call on him, he informed her it was pronounced “Shi-Todd.”

    Don’t ask me how I know this but Ryan Lochte’s nephews are named Trustin, Lytin, and Zaydin. Like… What the actual f*ck???

    There’s been a news article here in Oz about a guy of Vietnamese background called…Phuc Dat Bich.

    Because I’m smutty at heart it got a great big snigger out of me!

    I think Camden and Jaxon are horrific, but like Saylor. I almost named my daughter Sailor. Shocked to hear that it is getting popular, as, at least to my knowledge, it’s never been in the top 1000 girl names.

    I find it hilarious when people get on their high horse about liking “classic” names and eschewing “trendy” ones. Unless you name your daughter Katherine or Sarah, you are giving her a trendy name, because if someone is named Hazel, Edith, Mabel, Violet, Charlotte, etc., I know they’re either less than 10 or more than 70 years old.

    My friend had a baby this year and named her son Jadon. I really abhor that spelling of Jaden. I like Jayden too. But Jaydin or Jadin, Jaydon, Jaiden, Jaidyn, Jaydyn, Jaidon and Lord knows what else…. NO. She was all “I didn’t know that name was so popular! I just liked the sound.” Yeah you and all the other moms naming their kids Aiden, Braden, Camden, Ashton, Hayden… Not that original.

    I was the Ashley/Jennifer/Caitlin/Madison/Lauren/Catherine generation. So many girls in my classes with those names! My sister and I stood out with our French names that nobody else ever had.

    It was fascinating to read the strong negative responses to nontraditional names here. I really didn’t think Saylor was so bad. It gives some credence to those experiments where resumes with traditional names got more callbacks for interviews than other names.

  33. Micha says:

    Liv Tyler just had a little Sailor too (Sailor Gene I think) so I feel both of them are copied. Seperately either one could have been nice, IF it was Sailor not Saylor. Like someone else said it just seemed they went for Taylor, but ended up with a typo.

  34. Susan says:

    So I’m waiting for the crazy names to become so commonplace that traditional names are the new weird.
