    "hooking up in the real world," hosted by coral and myself. it ended up pretty good.
    "coming out" stories told by comedians and writers. not a comedy show, per se, but is often funny.

    Ya know, I thought the same thing, 'apple pie,' how sad!

    Oh, hi, I'm Vicky. Nice to meet you. :)


    One little typo on her last name on school records and she will be a drink on the menu! That poor child!


    Too funny - she's gonna love the nicknames: Pippin, Granny Smith, Gold 'n Delicious...The mind reels.

    Irah's just awful. I wrote about this too.
    You have to see the link that I posted with the top 10 worst celeb names.


    No. Something is really wrong with you. I can't take this. I try to come here and maintain my composure but you gotta go and act a fool. But Gwenyth does need her ass mollywhopped for naming that child Apple.


    Damn, I loved this post. It made me laught out loud. I like to think that I'm open minded about other points of view, but this poor child will be teased throughout her life. Apple could have been a great nickname, but seriously, as an actual name...


    I guess that Apple is better than Cherry?? Especially with the 'pie' reference.


    I don't think Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter is going to be too bad off for the name. It's not as if she's going to be enrolled in public schools, with the heathens I grew up alongside. She'll be in high-class joints, with other celebrity kids with other stupid names, and everyone will defer to her, despite her name, because they'll want her mommy to shoot their screenplay.

    Dear Daniel Francis,
    I was not aware that your middle name displeases you, but it is duly noted and I will add it to the list. As a refresher, however, your middle name was chosen for you to honor my father, Francis Martin, and also your great grandmother, Frances (Granny-Granny) - two amazingly wonderful people. Each time I call you Daniel Frances I am reminded of them. And let's not forget Francis Sinatra. And Francis Ford Coppola. Hopefully, "Apple" will consider her parent's reasons before deciding not to like her name. I think it's kind of cute. Certainly, she is the "apple of their eyes" as any child is to his or her parents!

    Daniel Francis...looks like Judith Ann has put you in your place, and rightly so.

    I am guessing the reason they named the baby Apple is the name of the Record Lable owned by Sir George Martin (Chris' father) who was considered (this is so lame) "the 5th Beatle", is called Apple Records.



    I think Gwyneth's lying - she really named the child something perfectly normal like Molly or Elizabeth, but told her publicist to announce that she'd named her "Apple" just to see people freak out.


    FYI: "Judith Ann" is my mother, who I adore and think is the best mother in the world and I would never ever question any decision she made in her parenting process--including her choice of my middle name, which I will now use as my actual name in an offering of reverence (is that spelled right?) to my beloved ancestors, and the other Francis/Frances individuals that have graced this planet with their greatness, even though I never knew them.

    But I still think "Apple" is really stupid. I'm allowed to have my own opinion on that topic.


    Haha, I about died when I saw it on E! I can't believe she did that. What an odd choice. I guess names like Brittany and Lindsay were too played out and normal for her.


    Who names their child a piece of fruit?!


    i heard it's 'cause gwyneth (yep, we're on a first-name basis... yeah) was raised in NYC. the big apple. personally, i'd rather call my child 'the city that never sleeps.'


    i know a girl named Apple from Laguna Beach, CA. As far as I know, everyone accepts her for her name and let's get on with it. I is a name , there are a lot of names out there that a lot of us never heard of, I really dont understand why this has to be such a topi cof interest, why CNN felt the need to make it top news that she named her daughter Apple. Oh yeah, and who's Dan? Something about the Real World or something. Yeah, I dont watch it, but I did watch some Inferno. Dan are you on that show??


    Rachels got a point, that's like calling their daughter Paris or something like that - which in my opinion is lame too. Yeah apple *rolls eyes* is too out there, even for Gwyneth Paltrow


    The whole thing is so tongue-in-cheek it actually hurts.

    At least she didn't give her the name "Cranberry" like my parents gave me.
