What's Your Baby Called?

Alberta just released its list of popular baby names for 2006. For some reason Ava was popular last year, pushing Emma out for most popular girl's name. Unfortunately they also presented a number of names that make want to hunt down the parents and smack them good for giving their kids such stupid names. What kind of idiot names their kid DiezelBlaze? And the parents who named their children Rowdy and Tyrant are just asking for trouble. It's also interesting that Alberta parents who named their daughters Abigail managed to find 21 different ways to spell it. Take it from someone who has a last name that needs to be spelled for people frequently, giving your kid an odd spelling of what should be an easy to spell name is just going to cause problems for the poor tike.
