From my experience in writing, I troll a lot of Baby Name resources, as well as looking at national data based on timeframe. To avoid a name that either doesn’t fit the era, or is so uncommon as to be ridiculous.
I also went to the Jawbreaker show and it was also the best thing I saw, ever.

Oh no, force me to spend $6 and be treated to unlimited shitty, delicious mac & cheese pizza. Fuck you, fuck all of you. Cici’s rules.
Seeing a lot of comments in here from people who clearly didn’t actually read the post. Don’t be that person.
It’s weird seeing you guys. Please hire stand-ins and do re-enactments. Or at least make Nick and Tom dress differently.
This isn’t new. Remember the Bonds/McGwire/Sosa camera flash phenomenon?
You could be a hand model with those nail beds! And he is totally GOOP.
And in fact he was a lousy soldier, graduating at the bottom of his Annapolis class (which means flunking calculus and not turning in work, rather than being a rebel), getting wings he almost certainly didn’t qualify for, and dodging a well deserved grounding because he was Navy royalty. Most men don’t get a chance to…
Ah man. The big baseball scene in Parenthood. It’s not the swelling, triumphant crying after he catches it. It’s when the ball is hit and Steve Martin goes “oh shit.” I can’t even watch it. His poor little dude is out there, panicking, and he can’t help him. He can’t help him catch it, and he can’t protect him from…

I’ve been trying to keep up on Instagram because at least it has a degree of artfulness to it which I can…
“But mothers are all wonderful! You just need to learn to appreciate yours for who she is!”
Really excellent long-form piece, Dvora.

Most of our coaches were men, but I recall one specific coach just giving me, I don’t know how to explain it, but a weird feeling. The way he spoke to us, looked at us, touched us…
At this point, I only trust Jamie Dantzscher to run USA Gymnastics. I know Terrin Humphrey is the athlete rep, but Jamie should be there too.
And in an affidavit Dantzscher submitted in order to get a Michigan judge’s gag order lifted, she added that she has been informed that USA Gymnastics’ attorneys had reached out to her former boyfriends to “dig up dirt” on her and ask questions about her sexual history as an adult.
Hanna’s dad is a lawyer, right? Possibly a doctor, but almost certainly a lawyer.
“Cleveland faces the Bills next Sunday” was the first draft of Hemingway’s famous six-word story.
