From ellettra This is too funny not to post. Name meme inspired by the Palin family. Try your hand.
Come up with five names that meet the following criteria:
1. Sports name
2. Nearby area, possibly nostalgic, but not where you're from
3. Nearby place, no necessary association
4. "Cool" name
5. Mythological name
Referencing the Original--
From Wikipedia: [Sarah Palin] married her high school boyfriend, Todd Palin, on August 29, 1988... The Palins have two sons (Track, 19, and Trig, four months) and three daughters (Bristol, 17; Willow, 14; and Piper, 7)... Todd Palin has said Track's name came from the interest Sarah's parents had in the sport and the fact that he was born in the sport's season; Bristol was named after Bristol Bay in Alaska, where Todd grew up and where he does commercial fishing; Willow was named after Willow, Alaska; Piper got her name because it is uncommon and "a cool name"; Trig's name is Norse for "strength".
2. Yosemite (Yosie for short)
3. Pegasus (after the Pegasus book store)
4. Brock (seriously, it's cool.)
5. BRUNHILDE (capitalized too)
Bonus: Grandchild named after any one of the programs Palin has tried to line-item veto!
6. Sage (for Passage House)
The explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support
