Dear Swistle, thank you so much!
After gently suggesting some of the names you listed to my SIL she fell in love a pair of them, therefore putting the much celebrated kibosh on Felony Fever! (and yes, that REALLY WAS the name they had picked out for the daughter, no joke. 2 years ago my brother's best friend named his little girl Lethal Cashmere, nickname Cash. My Bro thought it was, quote, "genius" & I think he wanted to match his friend in the crazy/weird name category)
Anyway, SIL gave birth yesterday to a perfectly healthy, beautiful baby girl. Her name? Thanks to Swistle it's Verity Clarity Vice (Bro wouldn't give up the Vice part even though SIL finally put her foot down about the first two names)! While still not my cup of tea when it comes to baby names, it's a million trillion times better than Felony Fever!
So thank you Swistle, you saved my poor sweet niece from a real horror of a name!
