I remember reading in a Weekly Reader in gradeschool in the 70's about the trend in the day of goofy names parents were giving their kids. The article argued that giving child a weird name would isolate them and cause them to be bullied. It was not only true about that but, it looks like when they get older they use it as cudgel to bully others.

For an idea to combat bullying by celebs, and I'm not one with the time for it, someone should make a twatter account and point out when people are being bullies with their tweets or attempting to use peer pressure. Even go so far as to make them recognize you as an authority because it's easy to spot bullying in its many forms. Use it against the so-called fact checkers to point out their flaws so you can be the higher authority. Why not make a hundred accounts geared towards it?

When I was young, goofy names used to be naming kids after things like flowers or characters, such as Daisy, Rose, Sherlock or Frodo. But now they seem to be completely normal based on some of the names that people now have given their children.
